    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

    So my eyelides are ridiculously oily! Like I have no idea how it's possible to be this oily! But I put this on, let it dry for a minute, put on my eye shadow and TADA!!! It stays on all day! I'm so glad I bought this first and not a super expensive one.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

        I use this both on my eyelid for my eyeshadow and on my lower lash line to help set my eyeliner. A little goes a long way with this stuff; I've found that if you use too much, it's not effective. If you use the right amount, it works well.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

            I bought this eyeshadow base because I have been very happy with my recent purchases from NYX Cosmetics and it appeared to be very similar to the ELF eyeshadow base I had been using. This eyeshadow base is very oily and a bad match for my oily eyelids. It is very difficult to apply and blend well, and left my eyelids looking bare and my eyeliner wore off very early. I am disappointed in this product, but I do really love most NYX products. I will stick to my $1 ELF eyeshadow base instead.

              This is the first eye primer I have ever tried. I never really thought it would make a big difference on my oily lids but I was completely wrong. I really like this product. This makes my eye shadow look fresh and last ALL DAY. I will purchase again! Also you can't go wrong with NYX's prices.

              It doesn't help my eyeshadow last. Parts of my shadow dissapear by the end of the day.

                I use this product every single day and for every occasion. It goes on easily, but I like to give it some time to dry a bit before applying shadows. This stuff lasts forever. I wear it all day at work and then go bust my butt at the gym for 90 minutes and my shadows don't budge!

                  This stuff works pretty good..I just don't like the way it doesn't completely dry down ..I have oily lids so it could just be me. It last most the day before creasing..If your looking for some that lasts all day try urban decay eden..love that stuff it has me spoiled!

                    I have trouble with eyeshadow creasing and this works great. I apply it right after my tinted moisturizer so that there is time to set before I put on my eyeshadow. This has helped my eyeshadow stay in place all day. My eyes also use to start burning around 4 or 5 in the afternoon, but I've noticed less of that since I started using this product. Price is reasonable. I would recommend.
