      I use it when I head to work and it lasts me all day. It's a close match to urban decays eyeshadow primer. Just not that good.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

        I bought this product in store the day of my graduation, I needed to make my eyeshadow last through sweat, tears, etc. I have very oily skin also, however I did my make up at 2PM and when I came home at 12AM my eyeshadow was perfectly in place. I use it every day now. I love this primer and recommend it to everyone.

        NOW, I BELIEVE THE REASON WHY PEOPLE ARE UNHAPPY WITH THIS PRIMER IS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SETTING IT. (Caps so you guys notice and hopefully it helps.) Most primers need to be set with an eyeshadow similar to its shade or translucent powder in order for it to not crease, similarly to concealer and foundation. This layer of powder helps the other eyeshadows blend nicely, since powder blends well with other powders, NOT creams. I've always done this, but I imagine that without doing this step, it must be a mess. Try setting it and perhaps you'll love it as much as I do.

        Terrible! It creased right away and it's very drying! Buy the NYX jumbo pencil in the color "milk". It's a much better eyeshadow base.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

        This only works for about 4 hours before creases in my shadow appear. I live in Georgia and its not even that hot or humid yet, I can't imagine it could stand up to the mid July heat!

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

        I find Nyx's High Definition Eyeshadow Base to be comparable to Too Faced's Insurance and Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion for the money. It's long-lasting and eyeshadow colors appear more vibrant. The only con is that you have to smooth out the creases after applying.

            I wanted to have high hopes for this product because I love NYX products because they are good quality for a cheap price however, with this product that is not the case. Spend the extra money and get a good eye shadow primer. This one crease on me within 10 min of me applying it, even when setting it with a powder. It does not make my eye shadow last longer and it does not make it more pigmented. I wouldn't waste your time or money.
