The cute packaging was enough to sell me on this new product from Benefit. I'm a fan of their blushes and creaseless cream eyeshadows, but other than those products I haven't experimented much with the rest of their line.
However, when new products hit the market, especially ones with strong claims like this one, I'm the first in line to give it a try. I do it for you, reader. And for myself. I've always been this way. It's just much more fun now that I get to share it with you!
So, Benefit has a video on their site showing how to apply this product. You can follow their method, or try what I do. It's not very different.

Once the primer is applied, immediately apply your foundation. I used liquid, but you can use whatever foundation you normally use.
If you are interested in seeing the steps I took to get the final look, watch this video. I used a few different products along the way, but the concept is generally the same. I did use my Arbonne foundation, in case you were wondering.
So what did I think of Benefit's Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer?
I was very impressed with a few things:
1. The product consistency. It's slightly tacky, but that means it works.
2. The sheer, non-greasy finish.
3. The longevity. My makeup really looked fresh all day. Even in the heat + humidty.
So, my overall thoughts? I'm sold. And I think this product launches at the perfect time of year. This is the exact month that my makeup starts melting off from the heat of summer. I'm happy to have found a great product to keep everything in place.
Buy it at Sephora for $32.00. PLUS, Sephora has a great return policy in case you don't love it.
Enjoy your melt-free days of flawless makeup!
