Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

I went to Ulta looking for the color that looks like concealer but came across the white one. Once it is applied it really does make all the colors you put over it pop. This stuff is amazing. Be careful a little goes a long way.

    Great price. Good quality. Good quantity. Pigment/color allows for enhancement of eye-shadow pigmentation. Keeps eye-shadow on all day/night. Best bargain brand eye shadow primer.

        I find that NYX products are hit or miss. This was a miss for me. It did not go on well, and was particulary sparkly.

        I have been eyeing this product for a while and finally broke down and purchased it and was disappointed. I love NYX cosmetics and this product did not live up to the brand. I find that while you do get a better color in the long run it does not last.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base:

            I have used eyeshadow primers before, some high end and some super cheap. All in all I never felt like they really did anything that adding some concealer to my eyelids first couldn't do, so I usually skipped them.

            I have proof that I was mistaken!!!!

            I bought a high end eyeshadow palette and ended up returning it because the colors were just NOT showing on my skin tone.

            After being nudged to 'give it another shot' I thought, well Im going to use a base color first and see if that helps (from youtube tutorials).

            WOW.

            Ok so out the gate this stuff (I got the white colored one) is like "oh no did I just paint white all over my eyes??" VERY bright. But it's smooth and blended easily with a sponge to smooth out.

            I applied the first color and was amazed at the difference it had made. Each color I applied after that I was equally astonished at the difference this white base had made.They all just pop with vibrance.

            I am VERY pleased with how much of a difference this white base makes for color payoff. Definitely would purchase it again just for that single reason alone.

            This product creases & made the eyeshadow dull. It didn't last long. It's a lot of product for a good price but not worth it for me. I prefer Mary Kay eye primer.

                With all of the reviews I have done for NYX (besides there amazing eye liner) this stuff does work and look okay for the first maybe hour or so but after that its creasy (if thats even a word) and it fades.
                I am a firm believer in spedning money on some things and not on other things and this is about 7 dollars and does not work, spend 3 more dollars and get the travel size urban decay primer potion. I have found that the travel sizes last longer than one would expect!!

                  I wanted to like this. I love NYX, but have found that some products are major hits, and the others are major misses. This is a major miss. This product is not a good base for eye shadow, it doesn't dry like a proper eye shadow base should. I've used it several times and the result is always horrible creases, which I usually don't even have a problem with. I got this because I wanted my colors to pop and stay true. Unfortunately, it looks as though I will have to splurge on a more expensive base because this stuff just isn't worth it...it certainly can be used as a brow highlight though because the pigment is saturated and bright white. The best base IMO is UD, it has a tacky yet dry finish that eye shadows cling to and never creases. This is too soft and creamy for a base, it will make any eye shadow crease quickly and badly.

                  I liked the color of the product, it just did not stay for very long with my oily eyelids. It might be better for someone who does not have oily eyelids. Very disappointed

                    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.
