    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

    This stuff applies nicely. But it never dries or sets so it just smears right off. I'm using high quality eyeshadows from UD & TF with this and it's just not cutting it. I recommend the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in MILK.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

        I'm used to Urban's shadow primer but after my Urban Electric palette purchase, I wanted a white primer to make the bright colors really pop. It did do that as far as making the color pop but it started creasing an hour or so after applying it. I've never has a problem with creasing with any Too Faced or Urban Decay primers so I'm not prone to creasing. I don't understand these other reviews that say that this NYX base doesn't crease. I even tried using it over my primer but it still creased badly. Very sad cause this product had a lot of potential.

        The only thing that I do not like about this is the glitter. I like a little bit of glitter but this has a little bit too much for me, that said I would still buy it again.

          Very nice base whenever using eye makeup. Shadow, pigment, or glitter goes on nicely over NYX cream based Eye Shadow Base.

            It is just OK. It seems to crease and comes off to easily. Won't last even a few hours. No go for me.

                    I know most people love this, but I HATED this product. I found that every time I used this, my shadows would not blend well and would become very blotchy. It also left a very white undertone above my crease to my brow, making me feel like Mimi from The Drew Carrey Show.

                      I would like to know if there is much difference between this product and the jumbo pencil in "Milk" to use as a base for vibrant colors?

                        A:

                        Jumbo Eye Pencil's intended use is as an eye liner and/or eye shadow. This product is designed as an eye primer to increase the wear of your eye shadow. While you could use Jumbo Eye Pencil as an eye shadow and layer other shadows over top, for an eye shadow base, we'd instead recommend this product due to its crease-free smooth finish and formula that increases the durability and wear of the eye shadows you apply over top.
