    Bought to use as an eyeshadow base or alone. Color was much lighter that it appeared in container and is very shimmery. Not what I wanted for natural looks.

        I have used this for years. I have tried other eye primers. This is by far, my favorite. It never creases or wears off. My eye shadow looks at 10pm, just like it did at 7am. This is my 'must have' beauty product.

                      I have been using this product for about 25 years and love it. I have been seeing that it can be worn alone. I have tried it and it looks kinda silly. Do you apply it from your lash line to your brow line?

                        You are applying it correctly, but maybe you need a different shade. We make several shades, and would love to match you with the perfect one in the store!

                        This is an eye shadow base. It prevents your shadow from creasing. It can also be worn alone to offer a brightening of the eye lid. Uplighting is a beautiful violet shade.

                        A:

                        All of them are matte except Buff Lighting. Buff Lighting has a shimmer. We also offer lid bases such as Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8 Hour Eye Colour and All About Shadow Primer For Eyes. Touch Base and Lid Smoothie offer more color payoff and the All About Shadow Primer For Eyes is much closer to skin tone.

                        A:

                        The two terms are actually interchangeable! :-) Touch Base For Eyes serves as an eye primer that helps prevent smearing, fading, and creasing of eyeshadow. Because it's tinted, it can also be worn alone, if you prefer!

                        Yes, the Touch Base For Eyes can help to minimize any discoloration on the eyelids. You can wear it alone, or layer it underneath your eyeshadow for even more coverage. It also helps to extend the wear of your eyeshadow and to keep it from creasing.
