    I have used many other eye primers and the NARS is by far the best. It has a super easy wand to apply. The eye shadow appears true to color and Last AND Lasts AND lasts!

      Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

      I've tried many products, and once I found this, there was no going back to anything else. I accidentally fell asleep in my makeup one night, and when I woke up, my eyeshadow looked exactly how it looked when I first put it on the night before. Since then, all my friends I told about it have switched to this product. The only "con" I can think of is that I have to put in more work blending my eyeshadow, because once you put it on, it STAYS.

          I HAVE NEVER FOUND AN EYESHADOW PRIMER THAT KEPT MY EYESHADOW ON FOR MORE THAN A FEW HOURS EXCEPT THIS ONE! I'VE TRIED SO MANY DRUGSTORE AND HIGH END SHADOW PRIMERS AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE LONG LASTING. MY EYESHADOW STAYS ON ALL DAY AND NIGHT ON MY OILY EYELIDS. I WILL ALWAYS REPURCHASE!

            I've tried many eye primers to try to combat my super oily eyelids. Nothing stands up like the Nars eye primer! I've been using this for YEAAAAARS. Don't let the price scare you. A little goes a long way, the tube should last you forever. (srsly i buy like one a year??) My shadows don't crease, they stay put, and stay looking fresh all day. Absolutely love this product, I recommend it to everyone.

              Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

              I was unsure about this product because of the price and because I have very oily eyelids. I was surprised that this did significantly better than my UD and Smashbox eye primers. It's transparent so it doesn't stain your fingers when you rub it in, it's easy to use and has worked with every single eyeshadow and eyeliner I have.

              best eyeshadow primer for oily skin

              By MichelleT143

              from Chandler, AZ

              Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

              If you are looking for a primer that can cancel out veins and darkness, this is not the primer for you. But, if you're looking for something that will keep eyeshadow on all day without creasing or fading, this is the one for you. I've tried UD primer potion and it does not compare to this. I NEVER experience creasing or fading with this product. It is expensive, but a little goes a long way.

                I had an issue with oily lids, to the point where my eyes would burn by the end of the day. I tried various primers, high end, drug store and they still made my lids oily. I tried this and that was it. It has worked wonders for me. I've recommended this to various friends and they all love it the same. I know it's pricey, but its well worth every penny.

                  I've tried 4 or 5 brands of primer over the years, and this one is the absolute best I have ever used! Great to apply and lasts on my oily eyelids. I will continue to buy even though it's a little pricey. Highly recommended!
