Benefit Cosmetics just added a new member to the Flawless family of products, and it is different. It's a primer. Now, a makeup primer is not different. Makeup primer is an essential product for long-lasting makeup. This primer is different because it comes in stick form. Can you believe it? Say hello to Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer.
This is the first primer that I have ever used in a stick form and I sort of cringed when I first saw it. I have a love hate relationship with makeup sticks. They are either really good or really bad. I quickly learned that this one is really good.
Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer glides over skin with ease. I simply glide it over my cheeks forehead and chin, then blend away with my fingertips. There is at least a minute or two of play time, meaning blending is really easy. It feels moisturizizing, but also has a matte feeling to it, if that makes any sense. It slightly blurs imperfections as well.
After a few minutes of wearing, I knew it was good. It is like one of those primer and perfectors in one and whether I used it with a CC Cream or foundation, both looked better than without it. At the end of the day, makeup looked great, even around my nose where I sometimes notice it fading.
The stick is good sized and I am sure I could get 5 - 6 months of use out of this, if not more. A little really goes a long way.
Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer is available at Benefit counters, Sephora and benefitcosmetics.com now. It retails for $32.00
