      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

      Was too wet. Took too long to dry. Worst eye shadow primer I've used. Eye shadow smeared when applying it. I typically love NYX brand, but did not like this. I was looking for a cheaper alternative to urbane decay primer, this was not a good choice.

        I've been using NARS' eyeshadow base for the last year or so and this is a great dupe for it! Applies great, doesn't crease, increases eyeshadow wear. All the things I would hope for PLUS it's cruelty free.

            I have very oily skin - including my eye lids. This product keeps the oil at bay and worked like a charm. A lot of people say they struggle with it drying on their lids, but I didn't have a problem at all. I put it on and about 5 mins later I am putting on my eye shadow and it does just fine. I put a little dab on my eyelid and smooth it around with my fingertip. Great value for the price. Will buy again.

                It's a good primer for the price. My eyeshadow still creases a little on the inside corners, but the rest of it stays flawless all day. Really like this stuff.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

                I'm sort of new to the eyeshadow game, and this primer was recommended to me as an affordable eyeshadow primer to make shadows stick to my lid without smearing. Without anything to compare it to, this primer is serviceable, although a little hard to work with. It blends easily onto the eyelid with my fingertips, but I've noticed it must be set immediately with a base layer of light powder to keep the primer itself from creasing in the lines of my eyelid; this also helps the shadows blend, as if you put on shadows directly over the primer, they do not blend at all due to how tacky and sticky it is on the lids.

                All in all, knowing that a base layer of light powder over the primer is needed to help shadows blend and stop it creasing in your eyelids is all that you need to make this work for you, in my opinion, and I'll definitely use this primer until my tube of it is empty. But it's not something I see myself repurchasing; after this tube of primer is finished, I'd rather try something new rather than shackle myself to this, as the creasing and stickiness drawbacks are annoying even if they're not dealbreakers.
