Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

I have never written a review for a product before, but I had to for this. I have tried almost every eyeshadow primer there is (from high end to drugstore) and NOTHING worked on my oily eyelids. I bought this product on a whim and it keep my eyeshadow looking flawless ALL DAY! I am OBSESSED, I will never do my makeup without it.

Best primer of all time

By Kari

from Chicago,IL

Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

This is one of my favorite eyeshadow/concealer primers ever. I have tried the UD primer potion but it ALWAYS made my eyeshadow crease. I don't have super oily eyelids. This base makes my eyeshadow and concealer stay in place. I apply this primer and put my concealer on top because my eyelids are very pigmented and even with the concealer powder and eyeshadow it doesn't crease and makes everything look great.

    Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

    I was in search for a primer to help my eyeliner stay on. This primer works wonders. I've had problems with smudging eyeliners before. With this primer, the eyeliner glides on and stays on all day. This is amazing and I will continue to use this. No need to look elsewhere for another brand.

    One of two primers I swear by!

    By Missbrown0138

    from Missouri

    Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

    I could not find any that kept my shadow from creasing thanks to oily lids. When I tried this Nars primer I was excited beyond belief! It could last all day and still be creased. I have tried a lot of different prestige brands and can attest for the Nars primer as one of two that works for me. The other one is Bare Minerals.

    Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

    I bought this because I have AGGRESSIVELY oily lids (despite my otherwise dry skin) and nothing works to keep my shadow from creasing--so many good reviews couldn't be wrong, right? Nah, I still crease. Less than I do with the UD primer, sure, but no matter what I've tried (layering foundation, concealer, primer(s), powder in a number of combinations), I still crease during the work day.

      Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

      this is the only eyeshadow primer I use now! so much better than everything else I've used- urban decay, two faced, etc. It's pricey, but it lasts forever and it truly works! I have very oily eyelids and this is the only primer that keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and coming off by the end of the day.

        Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

        I'm on my third tube (or more) of this eye primer, and have no desire to switch to anything else out there. It's easy to apply, and it just works. It doesn't add any color, or act as a lid "concealer" per se, but I've always applied a light color eye shadow all over my lids as a "base" so there's no need for it to do so.

        Long lasting primer

        By Amy

        from AL

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

        This product definitely does what it's supposed to. It goes on easily and smoothly and keeps my eyeshadow from creasing after 12 hours of wear. Does not really get a tacky feel or turn your eyelid white, which is the color of the primer. I will definitely buy it again.

          I have used many other eye primers and the NARS is by far the best. It has a super easy wand to apply. The eye shadow appears true to color and Last AND Lasts AND lasts!
