        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

        I have to say I absolutely love NYX products ! However this particular product did not compliment my skin type very well. I'm not giving this product a thumbs down because it does work however I have extremely oily lids and this product just does not hold up. I would reccomend this for someone who does not have oily lids, as this product does not work as well.

          I didn't expect the product to work as well as it does. I plan to purchase this product again.

            I bought this product based on the good reviews that it receives, and it was recommended for someone like me, who has oily lids. Unfortunately it doesn't work. My shadow still creased and disappeared by midday. I find that Benefit's Lemon Aid is a much better product, even though it doesn't work all day for me either.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

              I haven't tried too many eyeshadow primers, but I have tried the Lorac Behind the Scenes, which many people seem to like. I read this from NYX gives you the most bang for your buck, and I am extremely impressed. This blew Lorac out of the water. I like that it has a doe-foot applicator, it makes my morning routine easy. I have very oily eyelids (I can't even wear cream shadows with a primer), and my powder shadow didn't show any signs of creasing until 6-8 hours after application. Consistently. It's a great product, and so inexpensive. I really don't think I'd ever even sample anything else.

              Works, but is not the texture I like.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

              I love to use a primer on my eyelids on a daily basis. I have found that primers allow me to use cheaper shadows (therefore I can have more variety of shadows) because primers make the shadows last longer and not crease.

              This primer DOES accomplish those two things. Well, for the most part. I'm writing this at the end of the workday and just checked the mirror- there is a very slight, hardly noticeable crease. But it's still there. The shadow color does last much longer using this primer though.

              I will not buy this product again due to it's ending texture. The finish remains wet/dewey until you apply the shadow on top. With primers I have used before, the finish is almost more of a liquid-to-powder (like foundations) finish. This is NOT! Because it is still so moist when applying the eyeshadow, it actually creates a little friction and "resists" the application of the shadow. It is more difficult to apply the shadow on top of this primer.
              I much prefer the L'Oreal Magic Decrease primer although it has lower reviews on ulta.com.

                Good product! This is the only eyeshadow primer I have tried so I can't compare, but it works well! Good price, gets the job done. I will continue to purchase this!

                    I am IN LOVE with this primer!! Its super silky and blends very easily onto the lid. The texture is great--not sticky, thick, or greasy at all. This keeps my eyeshadows on like glue without any creasing, fading, or fallout all day long. This primer is just as good as my Urban Decay and Too Faced ones, so if you're on a budget, I would really recommend this :)

                      I've been using this primer for about a year now and I think it works just as good as Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I use this everyday. It makes my eyeshadow go on more pigmented than it would without a primer and it makes it last longer too. It also keeps my eyeshadow from creasing. I don't have any complaints and I will continue to purchase this!

                        I love eyeshadow, I've been wearing eyeshadow for 2 years and never took into consideration of a primer. I did notice that my eyeshadow would crease throughout the duration of the day and have an "unfresh" look to it. Now that I've been using this NYX eyeshadow primer my shadow lasts all day LITERALLY! My shadow does not crease and looks "fresh" until I remove it. This primer also helps bring out the pigments in the shadow you use no matter what brand it is. I really enjoy this product and it's a steal of a deal based off of its price.

                            The name of this product says it's an eye shadow base but does not live up to its name. I found it to be sticky & slow to dry. Did not work for me. I did not see any difference in my eye shadow lasting longer. Had to return.
