Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Review

Share

Benefit Stay Don’t Stray ($24) This dual-action power primer works 360° around the eyes to make concealers AND eyeshadows STAY PUT. Concealers don’t crease, eyeshadows stay vibrant and true…you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!

neutral nude shade is universally flattering

custom airless pump is sooo easy to use? just a dab’ll do ya!

My Thoughts:

NO NO NO NO! NO! I’m sorry to say Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray is not a very good product. Truthfully, I did not notice a difference between using Stay Don’t Stray and not using a primer at all. As you know, I have super oily lids so primer is a must for me. This primer was not able to keep the eyeshadow from creasing and fading. I think it made the creasing worse. Is that possible? I know people have complained about the pump dispensing too much product, but I didn’t encounter this problem. Instead of pushing the pump all the way down, I only pushed the pump maybe 1/3 way downward. Just enough to dispense a drop.  A good thing about the primer is that it did even out my eyelid’s skin tone. Overall, it is best to avoid Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray. There are so many eyeshadow primers on the market that are much cheaper and work much better.

Benefit Ooh La Lift Review

Share

Benefit Ooh La Lift ($22) Legendary under-eye brightening boost…this delicate pink balm is like an instant eyelift! Contains raspberry extracts and light-reflecting pigments to instantly perk up tired eyes.

My Thoughts:

I have under eye circles and was looking for a way to get rid of them or at least disguise. I was hoping Benefit’s Ooh La Lift would do the trick. Sadly, it didn’t. I looked for a difference but couldn’t find one. All I noticed was a pinkish shimmer under my eye. I felt all the shimmer did was bring more attention to my under eye area. If I applied it over makeup, I had a difficult time blending it. It’s expensive for a product that did nothing but draw more attention to the problem.

Benefit Sugarbomb Review

Share

benefit-sugarbomb Benefit Sugarbomb ($28) why we love it: Swirl the 4 flattering shades of peach, soft plum, shimmering pink and rose powders together and sweep on cheeks for a sweet rush of gorgeous. what else you need to know: Complete with soft, natural-bristle flush brush.

My Thoughts:

The newest blush to join the Benefit family gives a gorgeous rosy, peach flush. I think this blush will only work for people who have a light to medium tone. It’s a light colored blush so I don’t think it will show up on a tanned or dark complexion. The blush is shimmery, but you can’t see the glitter because the powder is finely milled. It doesn’t show up shimmery, but rather gives you a glow. Sugarbomb actually reminds me of a lighter, more subtle shade of Benefit’s Coralista. I think Sugarbomb is for light complexions and Coralista is for darker complexions. It’s an expensive blush, but it will last a very long time.
