Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer Review!

Hey Beauties,
Benefit Cosmetics is one of those high end brands that I truly adore ♥ Not only their products are great quality but their packaging is just too cute! And yes I am a sucker for nice packaging lol. Stay Don't Stray is a "stay-put primer for concealers & eyeshadows" and honestly sometimes these 2 in 1 products don't work well enough, but this one is just amazing!

The texture of this primer is pretty thick, goes on really well and brightens up the whole eye area. Just be careful and blend it out well fast, because it dries out withing seconds. What I really like about Stay Don't Stray is that using one product I can prepare my entire eye section ;) The shade of the product is pretty bright so even without applying concealer, I can see that my eyes look just brighter and more awake.

When it comes to using it as a eyeshadow primer, this product does a great job, because my eyeshadows last literally all night! I came back from the night out, thinking that probably my subtle smoky eyes does not exist anymore, to be actually pleasant surprised, that my makeup looked almost like when I left home at first place!

The only thing I do not like about Stay Don't Stray is that the applicator gets a little bit messy, proof:  that is how it looked like after I took out some product for my swatch

This primer cost $26, but Benefit often adds it to their Value Kits available on their official website or on and that is how I got it.

What is your favorite eye primer?
