    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

    I love to put this under pretty much any color! It just darkens up the color but still give color pay off, perfect for ppl who just want their eye shadow to be a shade darker. Put this under a turquoise or a shimmer color and be amazed.......

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

    I was a little disappointed that this product didn't enhance my smokey eye like they advertise, just looked black no matter what color I put on. Instead of a base it might add as a supper pogmented black eyeshadow supplement instead.

        I bought this based on being a fan of this brands other products and was intrigued by the idea of what it claimed to do. It really does make shadows more intense in color and last longer. I love this product!!

            I use the eyeshadow primer and then add this then black eye shadow. I put a light color towards the inner eye. Helps make a amazing smokey eye or what ever I want to do. Stays on all day

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

            I definitely love this concept! Have to apply much less shadow, and makes it look like much more of an intense color. I found it did flake some when applied, and takes some work to blend. I use a cream shadow brush to apply. I also use a higher-end eye-shadow primer under this, maybe that makes it flake? Overall, especially for the price, this delivers!

              Regret

              By KnowTheQuestion

              from Georgia

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

              I wanted a black base for my eyeshadows, and thought this would do the trick, but it's so sheer, I had to top it with my MUFE black eyeshadow to make it opaque enough. I wouldn't spend money on this again. What is most upsetting is that I researched this, and no one else said theirs was so sheer and hard to work with. I apply with my fingers, and I know it isn't dried out. It's so irritating.
