this white primer is the best thing that has happened to my make up. as a dark girl colours never popped for me but now they do!! I used it for my last photoshoot and it has made a world of a difference. I also kept my make up all day in the heat and humidity and the colours still stayed!!
I purchased the base in white. Loved the color - covered the dark circles and made me look "innocent" :-)
You have to know how to apply this correctly. And try to experiment with it on the days when you are home and not going anywhere. I have experimented with eye primer, without the primer, had put this base over (s/w dried eye cream) naked eye, and have come to an opinion that it better be used with a primer underneath and a little powder on top of the base to seal it as it does tend to crease. Its not holy, lol. Also, whatever you do, do not use it on the naked skin. I was always rubbing at my crease area to wipe off the oily mess. My eyes were extremely red by the end of the day and flaked big time the next day. I had put on lots of olive oil onto my lids at night to heal them.
I would recommend it, but with a caution - will tell all the possible cons. And will definitely read the lecture on how to use it to the optimal usage as they do not advise you that. All they say is to "gently pat it on"... Yyyeah, whatever that means.

The product worked as expected but this color is not a good makeup base for fair skin

i used this product by itself. its watery. wont last more than 1 hour.!!! might as well finish it... so when i used 2nd time i applied a matte primer then i put this one on top.. and it was a little better. i did get the primer for free from the "10 free piece cosmetics with a $19.50 ulta purchase".... im still using until i finish it, but i wont buy again.!!

it helps with the vibrancy, but literally an hour later it was melting the eyeshadow

I tried it several different ways it creased no matter what
Stephania from St. Louis
This was horrific. It is really sparkly, clumpy, and a terrible consistency. It creases the worst I have ever seen and makes eyeshadow look awful. Really small container for the price.

It was too noticeable. Wrong color for my complexion

Don't waste your money with this prime . I requested a refund to NYX

It was a little to light for me. I was looking for a nice primer but this won't do the job.

Great product for the money

I sent my boyfriend to buy eye shadow primer and I specifically asked for something with a white base. When he went there he asked the lady to help him out and she recommended this product.
It's horrible, it's like wax that doesn't dry, for some reason it acts like a highlighter in a bottle, NOT an eye primer. It's also translucent, would not recommend.

It's so waxy, picks up no eyeshadow, and creases like crazy.
Alejandra from Arlington
It feels very greasy and doesn't stick well to skin. Overall, it's not a good product and it smells weird too.

This product does not allow you to blend well. Makes your pigment patchy and does nothing to make your shadow pop. It creases horribly with in a hour (in an air conditioned room).

Works as a base but you will need a separate primer
Chels000 from North Dakota
This makes your eyeshadow super patchy and crease. Very hard to blend with this base.
Nikiitasha from Portland
I applied this product and it made application of eyeshadow really difficult as things started to get patchy. I couldnt blend anything out because upon drying nothing would stick to it the initial layer of eyeshadow or move around for that matter. I assumed it was the eyeshadow I was using so I tried a trusted palette that never fails me from Juvias place but that too got patchy. I have never had that get patchy on me so I had to conclude it was the base. It did turn the colour with the initial palette quite bright and nice. So maybe it depends on if you pack on colour instead of blend, I tend to blend more than just pack. I returned this product.

This is does what a good primer should: blends well, shadow sticks to it, and takes a few minutes to dry down so you can take your time with application. It definitely increases makeup wear time and improves the blending capacity of shadows. My biggest problem with primers is that they pill up when blending and emphasize dry texture around my brow bone area but I didn't have that problem with this guy. The only complaint I have about these is all the colors are very sheer. They do provide a slight brightening effect, but I wouldn't expect these to help boost shadow pigment much.

I see a lot of people rave about this base but for me it creases bad...I'll look in the mirror not even two hours after applying my shadow and its creasing already....I think it may be my eye shape cause I have hooded eyes but either way it's not for me
Gabriel from Beavercreek Ohio
The product was recommended by Kiki Fierce and Adam Mia. So worth it.

I never would have imagined how great this eyeshadow base worked for me. I'm very happy with the results, I use as a concealer and it's great

Got the matte white to help light/bright colors show up. It was the best primer I've tried so far for bright yellow powder shadow. It's creamy and doesn't look bright white on the eye. I applied it and then pressed the shadow into it with my fingers- changing which finger I used bc the primer wasn't fully set and didn't want it in my shadow. Idk the intended application, but that gave me the best yellow color I've had and it lasted, too.

Love it !

So far it seems to be a really good product I want to try the black eyeshadow primer as well
