Not great

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.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

      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.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

      I do not like this product. It feels smooth as you put it on, but once you apply your eyeshadow and try to blend it becomes a nightmare. I noticed that after using this product, my eyeshadow application is very patchy, no matter how much I try to pack on. It also doesn't make the color of the eyeshadow show up better, in fact, it makes it look faded.

      I know that it can't be the eyeshadow I'm using because I have Naked 2, Lime Crime Venus 1/2, and Stila.

      This product is very frustrating, and I will not be rebuying it.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

      I did a shower test with this primer; UD's Primer Potion vs NYX HD Eye shadow base. I got the exact same result from both. They stayed on through the shower, didn't crease or smudge. I don't even think I will buy Primer Potion again. The only thing I don't like about this one is the cheap packaging and the watery consistency of the product but I think that only irritates me because Primer Potion is so much more creamy and manageable.

          Asked in the store what i could use to make my eyeliner stay on, was suggested urban decay which i love but couldnt afford at the time so this was suggested which didnt even work for me at all so very disappointed. My liner on top of my eyelid smeared everytime. It would last for awhile but as always it would end up smeared.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eyeshadow Base:

            I used to another brand that was tad bit more expensive, ran out and ran to Ulta. Found this baby for half the cost and well let's just say I will be coming back for more. Very long lasting from the time I apply makeup (7:30A) to the time I wash it all off (9:00P) it's there. No creasing, flaking or oily residue.
