    It's actually a really good base but begins to crease! 2 hours into wearing it my eyeshadow looking horrible because of the creasing.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base:

    This is a slightly greasy feeling, shimmery white product. I tried to use it as an eye primer, but it made my eye shadow crease like crazy after only a few hours. Perhaps letting it dry longer would help. I can see it being more useful for adding sheen to eye shadows, adhering more product, or brightening colors, but it definitely did not work to prevent creasing.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base:

    The item was suggested by a consultant at the store since I advised I had to remain on a budget and not purchase the Urban Decay primer I had run out of. I do like the convenience of seeing how much of the product remains versus the Urban Decay, which I did not have the capability. Although I will look into another brand once I have finished this one to determine which I like the best.

      I've used the MAC primer for years and decided to try NYX to save myself $20. Not only was it worth the dollars saved - but it was BETTER than MAC.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base:

        I bought this product to prime my eye for the loose NYX glitter I recently bought. It worked well for that, as well as the Urban Decay shadow that I used the other day. Never again will I spend money on an over expensive base when this one works so well for a low price.

          I use this before applying eyeshadow to prevent the actual eyeshadow to clump up or have my eyes looking all wrinkly.

            I spend a lot on beauty products, but I find that though inexpensive, everything I've ever received from NYX is high in quality. This eyeshadow base is no exception. It goes on beautifully. I use a dense eyeshadow or concealer brush to apply. It holds my eyeshadow on all day. I no longer experience eyeshadow under my eyes at the end of the day, this product keeps it on my eyelids where it belongs. I will purchase this product again.

              I really liked this product and am very pleased with quality for the price! Only down side to this product is when you get toward the bottom of the container, the product gets under your nails. It's better scoop it out at that point.
