Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer Review

I had two Sephora gift cards burning a whole in my wallet and I wanted to try something new. I've been wanting to try an eye primer because I'm running low on my Urban Decay. I don't really have a lot of Benefit makeup so I thought I'd give Stay Don't Stray a chance. I bought it because I thought the concept of a stay put primer for concealer is genius. I used it two times. The packaging is not the best either. It comes in a pump but when you dispense too much product comes out. A no, no for me.

The first time I used it just like the box instructs. I put it on my eyelid and my under eye. I have to say I like the color, it's like the color of concealer but just blends really well. By the end of the night I had creasing on my eyelid. Not a lot but enough for me to notice. I have oily eyelids. The next time I used it I used Benefit on one eye and UD on the other. The winner by the end of the night was UD. I did like what Benefit did for my under eye area with concealer but could not justify the price for just that use. I returned it. I think the one I'm going to try next is Too Face primer. I like the Too Face primer for the face so why not try the one for the eyes.
What's your favorite eye Primer? Do you like Benefit Stay Don't Stray?

NOTD Essie Sand Tropez

I found this at my CVS and had a few extra rewards bucks and bought it. It's the new Spring collection from Essie called French Affair. The collection has six nail polishes. I bought Sand Tropez but went back to buy coat azure, french affair and nice is nice. I will be reviewing those later. The other two kisses and bises and topless and barefoot were not on the display. Essie's website calls Sand Tropez a sandy beige and I have to agree. There is no sparkle or shimmer it's a muted beige. The first coat looked awful and was hard to paint. It left a lot of brush streaks. The second coat was better but I found the formula a little hard to work with. I don't know if it's that specific color. I guess I will find out later when I review the rest of the colors. Have you been eyeing this collection? Have you bought any of the colors?
