    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.

          Love this primer. It spreads well and works so good at keeping your eyeliner and eye shadow on for at least 16 hrs. I have really oily lids and this primer works just as good as the urban decay eye primer but it's so much cheaper! Love this product!

          Far out performs the $20 competitor brand! It is only product that keeps liner in place on my oily top lid!

          great for oily eyelids

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

          I AM IN LOVE! Previously I used the urban decay primer potion and that stuff always creased on me. I just thought it was because I have oily skin. I have been using this nyx primer for a month and it is great!

          It got me through a weekend of moving, working out and sweating with perfect eye makeup.

          A little bit goes a long way and I always make sure to set it after I apply.

              I use it when I head to work and it lasts me all day. It's a close match to urban decays eyeshadow primer. Just not that good.
