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!!

          I use the eyeshadow primer and then add this then black eye shadow. I put a light color towards the inner eye. Helps make a amazing smokey eye or what ever I want to do. Stays on all day

          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.
