I ordered Stay Don't Stray on a whim and now I'm glad I did. It's only one color, so if you are warmer toned, this is not for you. This product brightens my eyelid and undereye (I barely need to use concealer with it) and helps shadows stay on well. It's odd at first, the pump gives out too much product, but if you are light to very light skinner you won't have a problem blending it into your foundation. Completely covered any reddness on my eyelids and covered up my undereye "bruising" from dark circles really well. I used a bit of concealor over the top of Stay Don't Stray under my eyes, and had VERY minimal crepeing, I barely had to touch up my undereye! Set it with some sort of powder or foundation maybe for the rest of your undereye so that heat from your skin doesn't make eyeliner/mascara flake and get stuck to Stay Don't Stray.
I am in total shock that this product does not get more recognition than it does. This has been and will always be my tried and true but I have experimented with other eye shadows primers but nothing even comes close. For one the packaging and wand are perfect. You get a ton of product so the price is nothing when you only need to buy maybe twice a year ( and that's everyday use). My eye shadow and liner stay all day, but my biggest plus is the color. The very light shade makes my shadows POP! A dull shadow can suddenly be brought back to life. Everyone I know in life has heard my scream about this!
This is a great eyelid primer if you’re looking for a higher-end product. Benefit is known for their great quality of products and this primer is one of my favorites. It swipes on easily, sits well on my lids and really does a great job of locking in my eyeshadow for a whole day of work. I love that I never see any creasing and I sometimes use it under my eyes to help my concealer get a lil extra grip!
I love the stay don't stray eye primer but I do find out that it does start wearing down after numerous hours of wearing my make up so then my eyeshadow is not as vibrant. I have bought it twice and I would re-purchase but I have found other brands that I like better. I do have a lot of texture on my eyelids and they can sometimes be greasy but this is one of the first eye primers that I fell in love with.
I was first introduced to this product when I got a tiny sample in a complementary bag from Sephora. I was hooked right away and the sample lasted me many applications. After that I bought the full-size version and I found the color and consistency great for concealing and brightening my undereyes. This really makes my eyeshadow stay in place all day and night. Would recommend.
I purchased this from Ulta and I haven't been too happy with it. It doesn't hold well with other brands of eyeshadows and for the price, I believe the product should perform better than this. I have used other brands with a similar cost that work better with no creasing having a 12 hr plus life. I will just have to go back to my previous brand. Just not for me.
My mom got me this as a gift a few years ago, and it just isnt the product for me. I have very oily lids and this did not seem to help the eyeshadows last more than 5-7 hours. The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion works much better and there are also some drugstore options that also work just as well or better for a much better price!
Too dark in color and is somewhat sticky. I do not like how shadows look on this primer, I think it takes too much time for this product to set. It doesn’t completely set, and this moisture might cause your shadows to pill. That said, this product is great to use under your eyes before applying concealer.
i stand proudly behind this primer and recommend it for pretty much everyone. i was sad to see the darker shade go away but the shade available now is almost universal. its a 360 primer and will keep your mascara and liner from leaving black under your eye if used following the manufacturers instructions
I loveeee this product. Its long lasting and finshing is amazing.I love this top most brand.This is one of my favorites brands and with reasonable price.I bought this from macys,jcpenney,walmart stores and it is also available in other stores like Fred Meyer,target,walgreens many.......It gives soft texture on skin. I would definitely recommend this product and brand too.Its better to search for offers before buying.Have different shades of color for different skin tones.I like to visit above stores only to buy this and find offers.It gives fantastic look for party and for simple makeup also.I am kinda shopholic ;) so love to buy and try different products ,brands and shades.It would be too nice if there are some small samples to try before we buy.Shade is just awesome on my skin and hope for others too.It has smooth texture.I would definitely buy More n more n more...I love trying new products and samples tooooooo.Its bestiest best product I have ever used...
