      I love this product. I rub my eyes a lot without thinking so usually my eye makeup is completely gone or all over my face by the end of the day. With this product my makeup didn't budge. Come 8pm my eyes still looked as good as they did at 6am when I applied. I put a dab at the lashline under my eye and now my eyeline doesn't smudge all over my face any more. Super satisfied with NYX products!

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics High Definition Eye Shadow Base:

      I usually use a neutral MAC paint pot as a primer- they are fabulous. I waned to switch it up a little and use a basic primer for everyday use. Unfortunately this one is NOT awesome. It is greasy and starts to crease after a couple hours of wear- creasing was never an issue for me even before I used primer at all so I was kind of surprised to see this happen. It also kind of toned down my eyeshadow instead of making it pop. So disappointed.

          Amazing for light skin tones especially. Super tacky, but still allows for easy application of cream and powder eye shadow. Exceptional for the price.

            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.

                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.

                    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.

                      Not a crease free product. Too slick

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