Helps the color pop!

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

This was my first shadow base. Purchased in white & admit it was a little difficult to use at first. But I realized you don't need much at all to help bring the colors out in your eyeshadows! At first I applied with a brush,& too much, That just made my shadows crease. Now I use a primer first and dab a little with my fingers on my lids. Tremendous difference! I am tan skinned and some colors just don't show well on my skin tone. But with this base in white, the shadows are there!

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

I bought this primer and it truly changed my life! The pigment in my eye shadows are rediculously vibrant and last from morning until literally midnite! I keep jars of backup in my makeup chest so I never run out.

    Great skin toned shade, but I must have the greasiest eyelids on earth because it creases terribly on me. Wish I could find another use for it.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

    I bought this originally for my eyelids but kept living a crease every time I used so instead I started using it as primer for my t-zone. It brightness my face and it's long lasting. I dab some on the t-zone and then apply my foundation with a beauty blender. Very lightweight and non greasy. I get tons of compliments and glad I found other uses for it.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

      I'm a novice to makeup use, especially eyeshadow. I've been interested in trying to wear stronger, more pigmented color on my lids for a night out for a while now and was hesitant to spend "lots" on a base. After shopping around I thought the NYX brand would be a good place to start since I don't spend a lot of money on makeup and don't wear it daily. I invested in the Urban Decay Naked Palette as a treat and to own a good set of shadow for going out and used this base with it. It worked really well for me. I am a newbie, so in my opinion it was the perfect look for me. Made the shadow stand out just a bit more for the evening.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

      Works well for holding matte to slightly shimmery eyeshadows. Colors are bolder when i use this product. The only downside is that it does crease after I've been wearing it all day, but I have oily lids. Sometimes I put a little bit of Urban Decay's Primer Potion on underneath it to keep it from creasing.

        IT really does help with the creasing~ I was never really able to wear shadow for long periods of time until this product. It lasts relatively well all day. even with cream shadows!

          I had high hopes for this eye shadow primer and it just fell flat. It goes on the lid very nice but there's no lasting power at all. Sometimes I thought my eye lids looks even more oily after using it.

            Hi Guys!

            So I often use reviews to help guide me with products I've never used before, as I'm sure we all do, prior to going out and purchasing it. I have heard and witnessed great things about this product, and I concur, it does it's job! Shadow bases are different from primers. Primers are meant to help your shadow last long and not crease. While a shadow base is meant to, primarily, enhance the colors of you shadow. So unless your'e really trendy and wish to wear a pop of neon or bright colors everyday, you wouldn't need to use a base on a daily basis. The white color will REALLY make your shadow pop, while the natural color will make it pop but not as much. Long story short..try using a primer (Urban Decay is really popular and does its job as well) first and then putting on your base and then your shadow, this way your'e covered in all areas for your night on the town. :-)
