Does Benefit's Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer Stay???

Benefit's Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer

As I drove away from Sephora last week, giving up a coveted space on Greenwich Avenue, I realized I left without picking up a new Benefit They're Real Mascara, (my Holy Grail.)

For a moment I actually thought about retrieving the spent tube I deposited in my bathroom wastebasket rather than go and circle back...and I do mean circle.

Then I remembered Benefit has a free standing store a few blocks down the street in a less crowed part of town.  The parking gods must have been smiling down on me, as I pulled into a spot right in front. The sales associate who helped me was both friendly and speedy.  Love that!  Mission accomplished.

The next morning I noticed that she had slipped a generous sample of their new and improved Stay Flawless Primer, which promises of 15 hours of fresh looking makeup.  It's been unseasonably warm in the N.E. so I couldn't wait to try it.

The first thing I noticed was that it was different than any other primer I had tried, most of which are a cool, gel like fluid.  In its true adorable packaging, it is in stick form.

The best way I could to describe the texture would be that of a gel deodorant.  It is extremely lightweight and it didn't feel like I applied another layer of anything. Lovely...but does it work???

Yes! Flawlessly, I might add.  My makeup looked perfect all day, despite the humidity, requiring no touch ups.  I even took a catnap before going out the other night and was floored to wake up not only feeling refreshed, but looking refreshed.

My sample has a long way to go, but I'm absolutely going to purchase Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer.  Here are a few more product details from Sephora's
