    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!

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

        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. :-)

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

                This was my first eye primer/base and although it has served its purpose and I've used it for over a year I've moved onto the HD Eye Shadow Base wand.

                It's a good product, I have it in white and when I use it my eye shadow colors come out truer to the palette than with anything else. It doesn't apply super evenly or easily so you have to have some patience with it and if you're clumsy around your eyes with your fingers it may be a challenge. It's a little oily and it creases a little but with the true pigment of your eyeshadow actually being shown you won't see them as well.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

                  When I first bought this product I was super excited to use it, I thought it would be a great base. After I opened the container I realized that it was a much different product than I had thought. It is super hard to apply well. You could easily just smudge it on but if your actually trying to use the product well its very difficult. Its very thick and not creamy at all. And it is not a good base, it is very difficult to apply shadows on top of it.
