      It helps neons/bright colors pop on the eye, but it still needs a primer underneath it. Without primer, it creased within 4 hours.

              Greasy and glittery. Advertised as a primer, but not a primer. It was like putting glittery chapstick on the eyelid.

              It is described as pearl white . To me it's very translucent white , not much pigment . Ok for day use when you don't want to use your better products due to cost . Worked best applying thin layer with finger , if thick then it creases . Then layer with shadow or pigment .

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base:

              I was looking for a good dupe for Urban Decay's eye shadow primer and gave this a try; Hoping to save some money. I wanted to like It and tried it several times, but it just didn't work for me. It went on great, but moved around while I was trying to blend out my eyeshadow. It didn't last all day like I'm use to and creased horribly. I will be returning it and going back to Urban Decay.

                  This eye primer works great. It goes on very silky and smooth in a white paste it keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and keeps it on for hours. Keeping it looking as great as I did when I first put it on.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base:

                  This primer works well as a base and as a brightener - making your eye makeup pop because of the high pigmentation and light color. It goes on smoothly using just your finger, but you need to apply it generously to ensure full coverage (especially underneath the brow bone). I have not had any issues with creasing or longevity, and despite the white color, it does not add any unwanted shimmer or sparkle to your look.

                  I have discovered that this base color (white), works better on my fair skin than any nude color, and that this product in particular is one of my favorites.

                    It creases a bit after application but once you put the eyeshadow on it doesn't crease anymore. Long lasting
