        Googled primers similar to Urban Decay. This was the first to pop up. I don't agree with any of the good reviews except for the decent price. You get what you pay for. Don't waste your money.

          OK by far this is one of the best products out there and it's priced right. I always use this before applying eye shadow, works wonders, lasts forever. Has a silky smooth feeling, blends well and will keep your shadow on all day and night.

          For the price this is a pretty good primer. Plus with frequent enough sales on NYX cosmetics and the coupons ulta has it is easy to get this for even less. The doe-foot applicator makes dabbing a couple of spots on the eye easy. I wouldn't recommend spreading it with the applicator though, I find simply using a finger works better. The primer is a light flesh tone that blends out sheerly enough to be unnoticeable (note: I have medium-fair skin, thus it may not blend out as sheerly on other skin tones, I don't know). It has a "cosmetic-y" fragrance if that makes sense, however, it dissipates quickly. The product is small (net wt. 8g on the container) and seems travel friendly. It looks sturdy enough. Great for helping with the pigment of shadows (tested it with a cheap palette and it did wonders!). Plus is long wearing, without creasing too! NYX products happen to be cruelty-free as well, which is amazing! Overall a great deal.

          Pros:
          Great Value
          Helps with shadow pigmentation
          Long wearing without creasing
          Travel Friendly
          Cruelty-Free!

          Cons:
          Slight Fragrance

          LASTS FOREVER!!!

          I've been using this primer 4-5 out of 7 days a week for 10 months now and it's just beginning to run out but it'll last a couple more weeks or so. As far as creasing-
          It's average, and expect a little throughout the day. For special events I use a higher-quality primer under then use this primer to make my eyeshadow pop. It's great for everyday and makes a difference with my eyeshadow. On occasion for a really natural look I use only this primer and set it with powder. Bottom line: I will repurchase.

            I love the wand that it comes with. I just dot a few dots on each lid and use my ring finger to blend. Keeps my shadow in place all day/night. I have even went to bed without removing my makeup and woke up and still looked flawless! Can't beat the price!

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

                This is BY FAR one of my favorite products out there. Using this eye shadow base has become part of my daily makeup routine. I use it every single time I apply eye shadow. I have repurchased multiple times and will honestly cry if it is ever discontinued. Not only does my eye shadow stay on for 10+ hours, but at the end of the day, it looks like I had just applied the shadow minutes ago. I have had people tell me how impressed they are that my eye shadow has lasted so long, especially when attending an all day event. Trust me, this product is a MUST BUY ! I will never use another base than this one. It also lasts for so long! This is a product you dont have to pile on your eyes. A small dab on each eye lide is good enough! If you wanted, it could last you over a year (but remember to keep fresh makeup). And did I mention that it is affordable? Perfect! BUY BUY BUY

                  I've tried other eyeshadow primers and this one is the best for me. Doesn't make my eyeshadow look cakey or dry.
