Most Helpful Positive

Really Works
I find my eyeshadow moves heaps but a bit of this and my eyeshadow stays in place all day. Also gives an even skin tone around the eyes.

Most Helpful Criticism

Be careful how you use it...
It took me a while to get it right with Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer but it's OK once I figured out the best way to use it. Note I said ok and not great though...

The first couple time I used this Benefit product, I actually found it made my makeup smudge MORE than usual but now I've got it figured out it does the trick.

The best way to use it, I find, is to put on as a primer before your foundation and to only use a really small amount otherwise you're makeup will be slipping and sliding all over the place.

On the positive side, the applicator is great, making it very easy to apply. Not sure if I'll buy this product again though, might try some other alternatives, however I wouldn't disregard it completely.
  1. Really Works

    I find my eyeshadow moves heaps but a bit of this and my eyeshadow stays in place all day. Also gives an even skin tone around the eyes.
  2. I liked it

    Helped with my eyeshadow not creasing but I loved it as a light concealer! Really nice and looks super natural.
  3. Works great

    Omg I have very dark circles under my eyes & this has helped so much with taking aways those dark circles.. I had never seen something work so well & so fast. U only have to use such a little amount.. so this product lasts forever.
  4. IN LOVE

    eye shadow stays in place all day even with oily skin!!! Also works well as a concealer
  5. good eye primer

    i love this as my eye primer. i apply it over my eye lid before doing my eye makeup. i let it set for like 5-10 min before doing my eye makeup. it does not crease my eye makeup, let my eye makeup on very smoothly and keeps it in place for the entire day.
  6. Nice base

    Good eyeshadow base, keeps it in place
  7. Locks shadow

    Keeps your shadow in place much longer than bare lids, but a good concealer also does the trick.
  8. Love it

    Keeps your eyeshadow on all day and blends beautifully! Perfect colour
  9. Good

    I didn't realize how amazing this product was until the day I forgot to use it. My eyeshadow barely lasted the whole work day, and wit this product I don't have to reapply shadow all day.
  10. Love

    This product is amazing I can't live with out it now. A little goes a long way. My make sure so nicely top it. A must try for all !
  11. Great

    Great! Helps everything stay in place nicely and even longer. Love how this feels.
  12. Love this

    The best part of the product is that I works really well to help my makeup stay put and not crease. I have older eyes and eye makeup rubs off under my eyes and make creases on my eye lids. This really helps. I have used another product I really like but the formulation changed and now I'm allergic to it. Glad I found this product to replace it!
  13. Multipurpose!

    I've actually only used this once as an eye shadow primer, so I can't comment on that. Instead, I use this as my works-for-everything holy grail concealer. My complexion is very light, and this is amazing when I apply it as a triangle from my outer eye corner to the bottom of my nostrils and blend it out in-between. It does not crease, lasts all day, and covers any darkness under my eyes.
  14. Strayed and didn’t stay

    I love Benefits brow products and thought I’d try this concealer. I was disappointed, it goes on nicely but it didn’t stop creases in my eyeshadow or foundation at all. I went back to using my Nars Smudgeproof product.
  15. Not for the over 30's

    I had high hopes for this concealer as I'm prone to rubbing my eyes throughout the day and wanted something that would keep my makeup in place longer.
    Unfortunately this was very unflattering as it dried down very cakey and accentuated every line and wrinkle around my eyes. I can't recommend this for anyone over the age of 30 as I imagine it would add years to your face. I'm 43 with oily to combination skin. I find Maybelline's Age Rewind concealer works wonders and is a fraction of the price.
  16. Not good for dry complexions

    Hated this product. Made my eyes look dry and cakey.
  17. Does the job!

    I prefer to use tinted eye primers such as this one as it does a good job of blocking out any unwanted tones on the eye before applying eyeshadow. I will sometimes use under the eye before concealer to stop my concealer creasing!
  18. Makes eyeshadow last for ages

    Love this as a base for eyeshow and it dries down really well and stops eyeshadow from creasing and your eyelids getting shiny
  19. great primer

    this eye primer really works and does all it claims to. eye shadow stays all day and doesn't crease!
  20. Does what it says, but...

    I find this product a little bit redundant as most quality eyeshadows last a decent amount of time these days - I also find it heavy to layer a lot of product around my eye area as it can be quite sensitive. However, I can see why people like and would use this product, and it completely does what it says.
  21. Game changer

    This concealer and eye shadow primer is a serious game changer. I have slightly hooded eyes and really struggled for ages with eyeshadows creasing all the time, but when I use this primer under the eye shadow they stay put all day! Also the same with under eye fine lines, when I use this primer under my concealer, it doesn't crease and I know that it's going to look good all day. Highly recommend this product and I don't do my makeup without it now.
  22. Great eyeshadow base

    Love this product as it creates a nice base for eyeshadow and allows the colours you use to really stand out as it is a light base. Not sure how this would work for deeper skin tones as I have light skin and the colour is great for me. Really increases longevity of eyeshadow!
  23. Underrated!

    Not many people talk about this primer however it's my go to! On days where I don't wear eyeshadow i'll even use this just to even out the colour of my eyelids. It's also great under eyeshadows, making them more intense and last way longer! A definite recconmendation
  24. Fantastic Product

    I use this product mainly for my under eyes after applying eye cream. I usually get really bad creasing with any concealer I wear. I have noticed my creasing is less visible when I wear makeup now.
  25. Great concealment of under eyes!

    This was my first concealer ever used at the age of 14 - and i kept using it for an entire year. The entire tube lasted me a year (maybe even if it wasn't supposed to). The coverage was fantastic and I loved the colour (at the time). However, the only issue was that it didn't stay on for as long as I wanted. I have very dark circles and it did smudge off a little and did disrupt the rest of my makeup. However, a very promising product!
  26. Great product

    I actually use this primer as a concealer for blemishes etc. The light shade is perfect for my skin and it covers so well (and blends well!) that I do't need anything over the top. And cos it's a primer it stays all day!
    I don't find it holds my eye shadow as well as some other eye shadow primers but because I use it exclusively as a concealer that doesn't bother me :) Am probably on my 5th tube of this.
  27. Very good product

    This concealler is very good my shadow stays in place all day when I use this product. It improves the surface of the eye area so products apply more smoothly. For me it works better if left for a while to set. I will be purchasing it again
  28. Not just an eyelid primer

    Not only is this product amazing at priming & concealing my veiny eyelids & making my shadow stay- it has the added bonus of being the ONLY product I have found (& i've tried a few) that will stay on the end of my nose! All other concealers/foundations separate and look all patchy & gross within an hour, even with a good skincare routine. Stay don't stray literally stays on my nose and does not stray! It's a miracle product and even though it's pricey for the amount you get, a little goes a long way & it is definitely worth it!
  29. Definitely a great eye primer

    This colour is perfect for me - I use this even when I'm not wearing eyeshadow, as it's great to conceal my weirdly veiny eyelids without sliding off my lids like a lot of concealers do. I really like it for that purpose.

    It also really helps my eyeshadow stay in place, and my colours appear brighter and more even. It's pretty tacky (which is part of what helps the eyeshadow stay so well), but because of this it's quite hard to blend very well without the shadow sticking to particular areas. If you lay down a base colour of shadow the same as your eyelids, though, it works a treat.

    I didn't really find this made a difference under my eye area, but I haven't found much at all helps me there - oh well!

  31. Will definitely buy again!

    This is a great eye primer! My eye makeup and concealer lasts all day and crease free! A nice light product that doesn't feel heavy on my skin and doesn't irritate my eyes. The perfect base for any look! Very happy!
  32. Great product!

    This primer does what it says it will - your eye shadow doesn''t stray! The texture is non-oily. It dries quickly once on. I will buy it again!
  33. This is a really great multiuse primer that does what it claims. Be careful of using too much this is the only way I've had problems with it. Also the price is a bit more than what you would pay for other brands but it is a great product and I would buy it again.
  34. Okay, firstly HATS OFF to Benefit for their adorable names and packaging. Seriously, their counters and products make me coo and gush in a fit of girly rapture. As far as an eye primer goes, this is fabbo. In the priming eyelids area, I currently use either a MAC paintpot, or a stila smudgepot, or Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I can't survive (!) without whacking something creme-based underneath my shadows to keep them locked in place all day. Greasy eyelids are the devil's work! So, this definitely ticked all the priming boxes. Longevity? Tick. Easy to blend shadows over? Tick. Nice smooth texture? Tick. (It feels like a runny concealer.) As an undereye primer, honestly I didn't like it that much. It was a touch too dark for my incredibly pale skin. At first I thought it settled into my fine lines and made a mockery of my undereye area, but on further testing, I realised I was just smearing way too much on. So a note of caution - you really do not need that much! On that note, my only qualm with this product is just that - I find it pumps out way too much product. On the flip side, the pump is really nifty and hygienic. I would definitely repurchase this and I will definitely continue to use this. It is one of the hardest-working items of makeup I currently own!
  35. I was wondering if having a separate primer for eyes (than face) would provide a "benefit" and this product proved it did. Like belleluminere, I thought it would be nice if less product was dispenced, but practice makes perfect on this one. I also use a separate concealer, but I found this product seriously extends the life of the concealer as well as shadow. In 35+ degree heat. For over 10 hours. Love it!
  36. The texture of this product is very much like a liquid concealer. Its creamy but still pretty fluid. The packaging is fabulous and I love the slim tube. My only issue would be that the pump dispenses too much product, but that is something you will learn to avoid with continued use. I liked the fact that this actually concealed the majority of my dark circles and made my eye area brighter. My eyeshadow did stay put all day on most occasions. The one time that it didn’t I think was down to me using too much of the product. When I used too much, the product creased causing my shadow to crease also. I think this is a great product for people who apply makeup in the morning and don’t arrive home until late, like myself. It is also good for brides, and for attending other functions as it will keep your eyeshadow fresh until the evening.
  37. I couldn't use the Stay Don't Stray as a concealer, as I am very fair skinned and the product was a little bit dark for me, but I used it as an eyeshadow primer and it was great. I tested the primer out with my worst performing eyeshadows (as far as staying power goes) and my shadow was still in place after a 9 hour work day. A little bit goes a long way, which means good value for money. Getting that "little bit" out was a bit of a mission though, as the dispenser gives out a LOT of product even at the softest touch. I would buy this product again.
  38. This fine textured, skin coloured primer for eye lids and undereyes comes in a convenient pump pack, with lid. 1/2 a pump is enough to cover undereyes and eyelids. Would suit those with light-medium toned skin, rather than really pale people as its quite mid and yellow toned. Its quite a liquidy texture so you don't need much, and you need to make sure it dries before you blink or move your eyes around too much. I found if I applied to much or didn't wait before applying following products I did get creasing on lids and concealer going into my fine undereye lines. Its good for travel as you can use to defuse dark undereyes, and even out your eyelids, even if you have no other products with you. I even used this on a few girls from work at a work conference when we did crazy pink and black smokey eyes.. It was a hot night with lots of dancing, and everyone's shadow stayed put!
  39. - perfect eyelid primer. eye makeup looks great all day. conceals all the marks etc on my eyelids, so it is excellent even if you are going without eyeshadow. - I don't think I need an undereye primer for concealer. I applied far too much underneath the
