    Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

    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.

        Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

        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!

            Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

            I love Nars eye primer. I have very oily lids and I was an avid user of the Urban Decay primer. The UD has great staying power but it left my lids looking really dry and I noticed that it separates in the tube. I switched to the Nars and I now have smooth looking lids and my eye makeup lasts all day! You only need to use a little bit. One tube lasts a long time so it's worth every penny. Love!

              Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

              I have really really oily eyelids. This primer works perfect for my eyelids and my eyeshadow/eyeliner last all day. Other primers would smear my eyeliner after a couple hours and my eyeshadow would lose color. Also, I have hooded eyelids so this really helps keep the color on. You only need to apply a little and it'll work perfectly fine. Can't express enough how amazing this is.

                Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

                This is hands down the best eye primer I have ever tried. It kills me that the price is so high but the quality is amazing. I have extremely oily kids and I always have trouble with the primers I've tried. Not even the Urban Decay primer potion performs as well as this stuff. And the Nyx "dupe" dorsnt hold a candle to it. I guess I'll just have to save money elsewhere in my make up purchases.

                oily and greasy lids

                Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

                I love this product. It works perfectly for my oily eyelids all day long. I can go hiking in the summer and still have my shadows stay put. I used to always use the Too Faced eye primer but this is much better. A little goes a long way.
