My fav...i like...Multi-purpose makes the price justifiable....(It doesn't really work for me to use this product as an under-eye primer for concealer - I find my concealer "cracks" a bit in the fine lines around my eyes - but I haven't used Benefit concealer with it either.) It doesn't really matter what sort of eyeshadow I use - cream, powder, liquid, pencil - it stays put for up to 15 hours when I put Stay Don't Stray on my eyelids first.
What it is:
A primer for concealers and eyeshadows.

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

love it...Love it!...It's also not expensive....It does what it says, I do feel that my shadow lasts longer and it doesn't crease, however it is a bit dark... It looks like a very light brown on me... I am pretty pale... So the shade works for most eyelooks, but for lighter looks I would love a more light almost white shade!

Love it...So happy...The price is great....This promises to be a lipstick with its own primer inside it, which makes little sense to me, but ok... I find that if I wear it on its own, without a primer (like Too Faced's Lip Insurance) its staying power isn't so great, and it tends to feather.

It's ok...love it...It is definitely worth the price!...I have tried every eyeshadow primer Sephora has ever had (well, at least it felt like I had) and after using UD's for years and switching to MUFE's for a number of years, I was on the prowl for something even better because I was getting frustrated at allergy season time that even with eye cream lathered on my lids, MUFE's and UD's primers would pill or give me crusty corners (yeah, ew!
