Benefit: “Stay Don’t Stray” does as told


I am not one to use shadow base because most products are thick and dry and I think it’s very taxing on your eyelids to have too many layers of make up schlacked on.  However, I received a sampe of “Stay Don’t Stray” and was tempted to try it because I have greasy eyelids and my shadows always crease and generally end up melting off by mid day. I don’t have as much of a problem with my concealer but this can also be used for concealer if you do. The consistency of Stay Don’t Stray is lightweight and creamy (has vitamins A & C to protect skin) without being greasy which got my attention, plus it comes in an easy to pump tube.  I applied it on my lids and it dried almost immediately yet did not feel dry.  It leaves the skin soft and clean feeling (like you have nothing on).  I applied my eyeshadow as per usual and went about my day which can be anything from working, lunching, shopping (which is really work in my case) and running around after my 5 year old.  At the end of the day, my shadow was still in tact.  It didn’t look freshly applied but there was no creasing at all!  This is great for traveling if you have a sweetheart waiting for you at the airport 🙂

    I also have greasy eyelids and what I do is to layer on eyeshadow and then powder foundation. I repeat this two times and it stays on the whole day. This product would save a lot of time if you’re in a hurry.
