My fav...i like...It's perfect for under powder or by itself....(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.

love it...It's ok...Keeps eyeshadow; powders and creams in place and doesn't dry or flake....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!

So glad....Love it!...I do not set it with powder....Now, I get what a lot of you are saying about it being hard to blend; the first few times I tried it, I drew it on my lid and regardless of how quickly I worked to blend it whether it be with my brush, finger etc, it didn't budge from where I drew it on.

I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder
