consistency / texture What is the consistency and texture of this product? Is it like a cream or more of a liquid / thin? Thanks
How do you use the product? I have purchased this product for the first time. I have followed the instruction, 3 dabs and let dry and then apply eye shadow. My eye shadow is off by mid day? What am I doing wrong? I have tried more then 3 dabs, less than 3 dabs, I have waited 10 min for the product to dry before applying eye shadow. I have applied eye shadow by dabbing, by smooth strokes. Nothing seems to work
Unfortunately, you aren't doing anything wrong. The same thing is happening to me & never used to happen. Benefit has altered the formula for the worse. I'm sorry this answer doesn't resolve the issue but hopefully it answers the questions.
Hi gorgeous! I find that setting my primer with a neutral powder like the POREfessional: agent zero shine or longwear powder shadow in call my buff makes my eyeshadow last all day! Set your primer with powder before applying your eyeshadow and you'll love the results. xoxo, B
Shadow still creases! Any tips? My shadow still creases!!! Does anyone have any tips or other products I could try?
Oh no gorgeous! After you apply the 3 dots to your eyelid and blend, wait until it dries to apply your eye shadow. You can also try our Air Patrol BB cream eyelid primer. It extends the extends to wear of your eye shadow for long lasting color that won't crease!
In the past, I have used this as a blemish conealer as well. Is this ok to do? The coverage is excellent.

Is the eye primer hypo-allergenic?
Hi gorgeous! Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please contact Customer Care to determine if a product is suitable for your skin. xoxo, B
Do I apply before or after my makeup base/foundation?
I apply it before my foundation. It's actually the very first thing that I apply. It's not a concealer, although many don't realize it, but it does have some concealing properties, so I suppose that you could apply after if you really wanted to do so. Hth :)
Apply your foundation first, and then apply Stay Don't Stray. Let set, then apply concealers & eyeshadows as usual.
Can you use stay don't stray and Fake up together? Or is it not necessary because fakeup is a concealer?
I don't use Fakeup, but I'm guessing that you can use both since Stay Don't Stray is NOT a concealer, although it does have some concealing properties. It is an eye primer that prepares the eyes for product application such as concealer, eyeshadow, liner etc. Hth :)
Yes,Gorgeous! You can use them together. Stay Don't Stray will make your concealer AND your eye shadow STAY PUT.
Foundation???? I have problems keeping my foundation to stay and my eyeshadow I trust benefit but I don't want to get two products can this be used to as like lotion to keep foundation on?
Stay don't stray is a primer for your eyes. To help your foundation last longer, try POREfessional or That gal and then use a finishing powder.
Do you have to wait for this product to dry before applying eye-shadow and concealer?
On the box it says to lightly push the bottle to have some product come out on the back of your hand then apply three little dots on the area desired then let dry a minute and then apply your concealer and eye-shadow. That is exactly what I do and it works great!
No it dries pretty much instantly..you don't need to apply a lot for this product to work..too much could end up looking cakey. I use a pea size or smaller for both eyes and under my eyes. I think the eye shadow may stay a bit longer if applied very shortly after apply primer rather than waiting over 15 min to apply. Hope this helps.
I let it dry for 5 seconds and then apply eye shadow. If you let it dry completely, the eye shadow won't have anything to hold on to. Hope this helps. :)
Yes, but is not like you'll "wait" because the texture is amazing, it will dry almost immediatly. And you need a very small quantity on your fingertips to have a great effect. Just try ;)
