Benefit Cosmetics Primer: Stay Don't Stray for Concealers and Eyeshadows

Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer for Concealers and Eyeshadows - Dual-action primer that works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers and eyeshadows stay put.  Concealers don't crease, eyeshadows stay vibrant.  Comes in a neutral nude shade that is universally flattering!  Sodium Hyaluronate hydrates and fills in fine lines.  Vitamins C and E help fight signs of aging.

I got this Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Primer as part of a set - Benefit One Prime Day - so the packaging is a bit different from the original/full-size bottle that comes with a pump dispenser.  Am sure the airtight pump packaging does help keep the product clean, but I am quite happy with the wand-tube kind of packaging that I have.  That apart, the product is all the same.

BENEFIT COSMETICS STAY DON'T STRAY PRIMER - REVIEW

The Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer is a neutral-beige coloured product, almost like a thin liquid foundation in it's consistency.  Dabbing it on is supereasy with the wand (am sure it's just as easy to do with the regular packaging - it's dab dab..how difficult can it be??), and it dries down pretty quickly.

I haven't tried it with concealers, but the Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer does a fabulous job at bringing out the colours in eyeshadows and also at ensuring that the shadows...err...stay and don't stray :D :D  No creasing, no disappearing, no oily lids.  You only need a small amount, and even this tiny bottle would last me a long while.

A definite winner for me, Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer is available here and costs $26 for the regular full-size bottle (or pick up a smaller size as part of one of the many sets at Sephora).
