Back when I posted about my March Birchbox and it's contents, I said (regarding one product in particular) that I promised to keep an open mind despite having issues with the brand's products in the past (read more on my Fake Up experience here). I thoroughly believe I kept that promise.
It was with an open mind and a hopeful attitude that I applied Stay Don't Stray from Benefit today. I waited and allowed the primer to set (I waited extra long just to be sure!).
First and foremost, yet again, Benefit have kept this product to just 2 shades. The Light/Medium was too dark for me. However, even at this point, I carried on and simply applied a little darker shadow than usual and swept a little bronzer about my face. It was passable.
4 hours later and what had happened. Can anyone guess?
My eyeshadow was noticeably lighter meaning it had indeed strayed. Not just that, horror of horrors, my liquid liner had transferred. A liquid liner that doesn't usually transfer, even when I wear absolutely no primer.
The absolute kicker? This product is priced at £20.50. Awful chunk of cash for something that doesn't work all that well.
Admittedly, I was surprised. I figured you couldn't go far wrong with a primer. Turns out I was wrong. I keep believing that one day I'll come across a Benefit product that I believe is worth the money. Unfortunately, this was not that occasion.
Have you tried Stay don't Stray yet? Will you bother?
