Benefit Stay Don't Stray

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!! I hope you're all having an amazing day, and sporting some festive green attire :) Today I have another product from Benefit to share with you today - Stay Don't Stray* ($30 CAD/10ml). This is a primer that can be used on your lids for shadows, or underneath your eyes for concealers. I love the dual usage for this product, I've never tried anything like it!

"This dual-action power primer works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers and eye shadows stay put. Concealers don't crease; eye shadows stay vibrant and true. Now in two neutral shades to suit all skintones, Stay Don’t Stray features a new dip-n-dab wand for easier application. Remember: just a dab'll do ya! " - Sephora

Benefit Stay Don't Stray Packaging

Benefit's Stay Don't Stray has recently changed packaging, and I love this new bottle. The old packaging included a pump, but this new bottle has an easy to use wand. I find this a lot easier to control the amount of product that you use, and there's a less likely chance of faulty packaging. Benefit's Stay Don't Stray is a dual use primer, which can be used on your lids or underneath your eyes. I like using it both places, and I find that it really does work! I use a dot or two on my lids prior to applying my eye shadows, and underneath my eyes prior to applying concealer. Stay Don't Stray helps to increase the wear time of my shadows and concealers, which makes me very happy! This product comes in two shades, and I use the shade Light/Medium. I don't find that this product provides very much coverage, and the colour of this product blends into my skin nicely.

I'm really enjoying Benefit's Stay Don't Stray to help prolong the wear time of my products. I love that this product didn't crease on me, and I think that it would work well on all skin types. Stay Don't Stray will come in handy for anyone wanting a dual use product. Have you tried Benefit's Stay Don't Stray before? Do you use a primer on your lids or for your concealer? :)

  1. I use UD's eyelid primer but I have heard this is a worthy alternative.

  2. I tried this primer and it didn't work for me. I'm finding Too Faced Shadow Insurance to be quite effective though!

    1. I bought this yesterday and used it today - love it so far! However I got the old packaging with the pump. Oh well, it's still a great product. :-)

    2. I'm glad you picked it up & you're liking it! Ya I think they're just switching over to the new packaging, so it's kind of by chance which one you get!

  6. This stuff is brilliant. I have a mini and it's lasted me for ages, it really does make my concealer stay put. Xx

  7. I wish they changed it to a brush dispenser. The pump was super wonky but doe foot applicator is too unsanitary for my liking :S

    1. Aw that's too bad! I don't have any issues with the way it is now, but a squeezy tube would be better since you could get all of the product out!

  8. I'll have to try this. I have such bad luck with primers. I've yet to find one that works all the time. The best so far is UDPP, but it only works 75-80% of the time. Stupid oily lids.

  9. I really, really love Wet 'n Wild's Fergie-Ferg primer (just picked up a matte version last week) but this looks appealing...it seems really creamy, which is great for a smooth, solid application. Definitely on my radar, now!

  10. I bought this product once and returned it without trying it. I forget what my reasoning was at the time, probably that I didn't use too much other than MAC paint pots as eye shadow bases.

    1. Fair point! It's definitely a product that I need to remind myself to use!
