love it...It's Ok...its super affordable !!!...I received a sample of Urban Decay primer and used it...I did like the Urban Decay primer but when I got to the store and saw the price I looked for something cheaper...Then I came across Kat Von D Primer...It is FANTASTIC and much better than Urban Decay primer...It holds the color of your shadows for hours on end with no touch ups!!

My fav...i like...First, this product is great for the cost....(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!

What else you need to know:
Sodium hyaluronate is known to hydrate, while vitamins C and E are known to help fight signs of aging.

In Love...love it...Worth the cost....I love BB's invisible oil line but I didn't get a lot of value out of the primer - I have dry, curly hair and just let it air dry naturally without using any heating products on it, so I used this as more of a detangler.

Love it...So happy...What a great price!!...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.

In love...Love it...Nice product, worth the price???...I think this is a decent primer, it has good ingredients and it does help prevent fading, smells really nice not overwhelming at all, thing is tho that I don't really use lip primers so I don't reach as much for this particular product, but if you do like lip primers give it a try :) I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion.

love it...It's ok...Definitely worth the expense!...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!
