Benefit Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer

When it comes to eye make up, I am a nude and natural kind of gal, I am not brave enough to experiment with the lashing of colours and shades that others are and never have been, but show me a palette of nudes, i'm in. In recent years I have succumbed to miracle that is an eyelid primer, using them because the girls on the make up counter tell you that you should and because some bloggers swear by them and in truth, they can and do make a difference, for me anyway.

When I saw that Benefit were to launch their own eyelid primer, I wanted to try it. I can count on one hand the number of products I dislike from the entire range and this one sounded as though it would become a handbag saviour and I jumped at the chance to own a sample. One thing Benefit do exceptionally well in my view is a sample sized product and this one is right up there with my favourites!

Benefit Air Patrol is an innovative little product which actually does three different jobs in one. It is a BB Cream and therefore colour corrects, it has an SPF20 and it is of course a primer which has been designed to extend the wear time of your eye shadow, not to mention that I have also found to be quite hydrating.

This little 1.5ml tube is the perfect make up bag addition and it is incredibly easy to use. I squeeze the tube slightly onto my index finger and apply to my eyelids with a patting motion to ensure I have even coverage and then wait a few minutes before applying my eye shadow. The cream itself has a slight yellow tone to it which Benefit say is to balance out redness and any uneven colouring, so much so that this is a product that can be worn alone.

I am hugely impressed with having an SPF20 in a primer for my eyes and more so that it isn't drying. It does everything it claims to do when it comes to extending the wear time of your eyes hadow and I find that I can go out of an evening after work and not have to re-do my eye make up if I have applied this first thing in a morning. For me this is a handbag keeper and if you want to read more about it, then more information can be found right here on the Benefit website.


Have you tried Air Patrol?

  1. I tend to give eye primers a miss as I have really dry skin especially around my eye area and it cakes during the day. Do you know what this product is like on really dry skin?

  2. I can't wear eye make up. It scares me. I can't keep my eyes open while the mascara wand comes at me. I can't bear things around my eyes.

  7. I love that it colour correct, but I'm also so surprised that even with SPF it hold eye make up in place. That's great as I tend to not apply SPF to my eyelids because it makes them greasy x

  8. I've never used an eye primer - good recommendation here. To be honest I didn't even know it existed I just tend to use Estee Lauder primer. Will definitely try. Great blog, stop by mine some time :-)

  14. Benefit is my favourite premium make up brand- standard wise it is Sleek- and a primer sounds fab especially since I have oily skin so eyeshadow tends to blur after a while.

  15. I've been thinking for a while that I really need to get an eye primer into my routine! I generally adore all Benefit's products but (unlike about 99% of people I've known to have tried it) I really didn't get on with Porefessional, so I think I'll definitely try to get hold of a sample before investing! Really into the idea of it being SPF20 though (why do so few eye products contain SPF??)

  19. It's amazing how many layers of Creams and primers and then make up they suggest that we wear. I personally have never used eye primer, maybe I should as I hate the creases that you sometimes can get.

  26. A standout amongst the most widely recognized varieties of this methodology is when abundance tissue is expelled from under the eye, wiping out 'sacks' generally connected with delayed absence of rest. Eye Lid Tightening
