I have very oily eyelids and no primer seemed to be able to prevent the fading, creasing, and smudging of anything I used. While this primer also comes in a beige color, I decided to try this white one first. On its own, I apply it all over my eyelid and even put a little dab in the inner eye corner. While I never leave the house without eyeliner, even if I decided not to wear an eyeshadow, this primer opens up the eye without making me look like a ghost or ghoul. Normally, however, I apply my Maybelline EyeTattoo to the lid and I am out the door knowing that my eye makeup will now stay where I have put it until I am ready to remove it at night.
After a few hours with this, my lids became itchy and irritated. It's been a few days since I've used it, but now my lids are flaky, red, itchy, and irritated because if this stuff. Even though it's more expensive, I trust UDPP more to NOT give me an allergic reaction
I love this I use it almost everyday. Shadows show up on it the best of any drugstore eye shadow base I have tried. Definitely recommend it!
This product is just okay. Its pretty reasonably priced but I think its a bit overrated. Yes, it does make your eyeshadow pop but its hard to get out of the bottle and does not apply very well. Its almost turned into a hard cream. I don't agree with some other reviewers who said this could be used as a primer...its not very fluid and really only just makes the colors pop more. It does make blues and greens really stand out though. However, I will not buy again.
I use this all the time and I love it. My shadow used to crease and fade and now it's not a problem at all. Even when I apply all black shadow I use this as a base, then a black base and blend black shadow into it and it all stays put all day. No creasing. It also allows you to build super vibrant colors over it. You can use a teeny bit and blend out or you can go thicker and make a very pale base. It all works for me. I have the skin toned one as well and have the same results with it although I reach for the white one more out of habit.
I wanted to buy the pearl-finish version of this, but someone stuck their grubby little fingers in the only one left! So I bought this one instead.
It definitely makes your e/s more vibrant! It also reduces "fall-out" when you apply your e/s. I wish it was in a squeeze tube, but since it is in a pot, I use a flat brush to get it out & apply on my eyelids.
A few weeks later, I was able to get this in the pearl finish, & realized I like the plain white better.
I like this better than UDPP, & it is a fraction of the price!
This isn't my favorite out of the three NYX bases, only because it's so white. You have to blend it out if you get it in an area if you don't want and you have to be careful to apply it in the right areas or it sticks out. However, very, very brightening to the eyes. Creamy as well. I don't have an eyeshadow primer, but I think this works almost as well as something would and when I have one, I think this would work great. My eyeshadow lasts tons longer with this on.
I was reluctant to try this product, because so many cream shadows or pencils (think Milk) crease horribly on me, even with primer. I've been very pleasantly surprised by this! I do wear it over a primer, and it does tend to crease just a bit more than if I didn't use it, but it's barely noticeable. The effect it gives is definitely worth it. It brightens up your shadows, especially colored ones, and gives them something to stick to. It just makes your shadows look nicer and more polished. There is a fine line between too much and not enough, but it seems to blend in pretty easily. My only complaint is that when I first put it on, it definitely accentuates any dry patches on my lids, but once I put on shadow, you can't see that at all. I would definitely recommend this product. Even if you have hooded, somewhat oily, easily crease-y lids like mine, try it over primer, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
I love this eyeshadow base! I would have to say it is my favorite nyx product and I use it every single day! I tried using the nyx jumbo pencil in "milk" as a primer and base for my shadows but it never failed to crease on me and flake off in chunks. Maybe because i have watery eyes? Anyways love this a whole lot and it never creases. I do, though use mac "painterly" or bitchslaps "light" face correcter under it. It really makes your eyeshadows "pop" and more vibrant. I get so many questions on how I get my eye makeup so bright and my shadows to stay and I have ended up recommending this product to so many people! It is relatively cheap and I would say a product that gets overlooked and not the attention it truly deserves:( I highly recommend and it lasts forever! Been over a year and still have plenty left:)
This is rather thick compared to the Nyx Jumbo pencil in milk, but I like to use this with brighter eyeshadows as I find it really makes the POP and look vibrant and bright! I don't find it as easy to work with as the skin tone eyeshadow base, but it is still a goodie.
