Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

I was a little disappointed that this product didn't enhance my smokey eye like they advertise, just looked black no matter what color I put on. Instead of a base it might add as a supper pogmented black eyeshadow supplement instead.

      I bought this based on being a fan of this brands other products and was intrigued by the idea of what it claimed to do. It really does make shadows more intense in color and last longer. I love this product!!

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

          I definitely love this concept! Have to apply much less shadow, and makes it look like much more of an intense color. I found it did flake some when applied, and takes some work to blend. I use a cream shadow brush to apply. I also use a higher-end eye-shadow primer under this, maybe that makes it flake? Overall, especially for the price, this delivers!

            Regret

            By KnowTheQuestion

            from Georgia

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

            I wanted a black base for my eyeshadows, and thought this would do the trick, but it's so sheer, I had to top it with my MUFE black eyeshadow to make it opaque enough. I wouldn't spend money on this again. What is most upsetting is that I researched this, and no one else said theirs was so sheer and hard to work with. I apply with my fingers, and I know it isn't dried out. It's so irritating.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

              I bought this eyeshadow base on a whim to go with a certain halloween look I was going with and I was so pleasantly surprised. I hadn't heard many people talking about this product and the girl at ULTA didn't know much about it but I'm so glad I tried it. My eyeshadow lasts so much longer with it and it is great for going out. I haven't tried it much under lighter shades to know if the black shows through though.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow Base:

              I used this product, but the Nyx White Eyeshadow Base is better. The Black Base is denser and less creamy, making it harder to blend out on the eyelid. It also stains. It is good for smoky eyes. This base deepens colors and makes them more vibrant. Truthfully, you don't need this, but it is fun to experiment with.
