Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

This product works as far as making your shadow last all day. I do a lot of variations of smokey eyes. The down side is that after you on the primer, doesn't matter how conservative you are with it, you need to smooth it out again with your finger. I put it on and wait a few minutes before using my fingers to smooth it out. It's just an extra step. I will go back to Urban Decay when I run out of this as Im often in a rush in the morning getting ready for work.

          I've tried many shadow bases through the years but this is the best one I've found. And, the price is reasonable.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

          I really love this product. It's super easy to apply and doesn't require me touching my eyelid where I'm sure to make one heck of a mess. With the wand it's easy to control how much you're putting on and also easy to smooth it out. The colors I then apply last a long time and don't fade or crease. However, it is a little on the oily side. If you don't leave it enough time to dry (and sometimes even if you do) you'll end up with one messy shadow brush.

          I don't know how well it works with blending for smokey eye as I've never successfully achieved the style but with the oiliness of the base I think it could be difficult.

            I use this primer every day with Urban Decay eye shadows. It is so much cheaper than Urban Decay's primer but works just as well. The only con I would give it is that it takes longer to dry before you can apply your shadow. I still give it 5 stars though and would highly recommend it.

                I wear it everyday under my eye shadow. The color of the shadow pops better and it also lasts longer throughout the day.

                The wand gives me just the right amount of product to apply to my eye lids. Creates a great base for additional shadows and liner. I am thrilled to have this product to use everyday!

                I'm so glad I finally found an eye shadow base that's inexpensive and actually works pretty good. The UD potion is just too much money ! But everyone should try this base out.
