Nice tube packaging which is sanitary but the color is too frosty for me. It does last very nice on but I prefer the clean matte look of Laura Mercier eye basics. It is a warm beige with silver frosty look. Just makes me look not so clean and defined as Id like to look.

This has been my go-to shadow for a few years now. I have very fair skin and this provides just enough color for daily wear, though I do often layer a powder shadow on top to provide greater definition. The product is housed in a small tube, making it very convenient and sanitary to use. Don't be deceived by the little package--one will last for quite a while. While I do not use a primer on my lids, this has always lasted through the day and provides a great base for more pronounced colors. Alone, it provides a light wash of sandy color with subtle shimmer--just enough color to emphasize the eyes. I don't know if it would be worth purchasing for medium skin tones, on which it may blend in with the skin's natural color and "disappear", but it does look lovely against complexions on both the very fair and very dark sides of the color spectrum.

This is my most favorite cream eyeshadow around. I mainly use it as a base but it also works perfect alone with some black or brown eyeliner for a polished nude look. It's the perfect color for me, not too much sparkle, just the right amount of shimmer. You only need a teeny amount, so a tube of this will last me almost a year which makes it a really cheap buy. It just really sucks that they discontinued it. I found my latest tube on ebay for about the same price as retail. The lady at the Clinique counter recommended the Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in Sparkly Nude to replace this, which I purchased, but it's just not the same, nor would it last me nearly as long as it has a doe-foot applicator. I like the squeeze tube so much better.

I wear this under a matte cream/nude powder eyeshadow. It is an excellent eyeshadow base and it has just the right amount of subtle shimmer. The texture is velvety and it applies very smoothly so you only need a tiny amount. I know that as you get older you are supposed to steer clear of shimmer but I can use this for day or evening and it does not make my eyes look crepey at all.

I tried this because I heard it went on less dry than UD primer potion, and I wanted a lower cost alternative to LM eye basics. This is an OK product, but it's a bit too shimmery for my tastes, and also it creases and doesn't have great staying power.

I will confess that I'm makeup-impaired, especially when it comes to eye makeup. Never learned how to do it right. (But the improvement when I started using blush was remarkable, so maybe I should learn!)
When I had a Laura Mercier makeover, the lady used something that looks like Eye Basics on my lids for a very natural look (in Shell, I believe, although that color doesn't seem to be available anymore). Looking for something cheaper, I bought Clinique Touch Tint in Nude Sparkle. It costs a little less, plus you get more product, and the tube means you can use all of it. Considering how little I use, it ought to last forever.
I apply a microscopic amount of it, and it really does last all day without creasing. I've tried the trick where you mix it with a little concealer and the look is even more subtle. I like the packaging a lot. Clean and simple little tube, with a long point that allows great dispensing control.

The best shimmery neutral base for eyeshadow ever. You only need a dot the size of a sesame seed for each eyelid. Wear it by itself if you want a very natural look, but it also is great under shadow to keep powder from creasing. I've been using this for years.

This is my all-time favorite eye product! The Touch Tints will last through ANYTHING, so I always use this one as a base for my neutral and cool-toned powder shadows. Nude Sparkle matches pretty well with my skin tone, and the shimmer particles give it a nice sheen that goes with any look. It's been a staple in my make-up bag since I got my first tube.

This is my second tube in 2 years. It is a really light cream with a lovely sublte sparkle. It is subtle enough to wear day or night.
It also makes a great base for layering. It is well worth the price as you literally need a tiny amount.

I use this everyday and have for years. It's a nice, subtle shimmer. A little more exciting than your matte eyeshadow, but not noticeably shimmery. Just makes your eyes instantly brighter. But aside from that, the reason I keep using it is because of its staying power. This really lasts, for me, much longer than any powdered eyeshadow does. And one tube lasts forever! A year or more.

This is an okay eyeshadow, but it didn't go on very smoothly for me, and I didn't find it to be very effective as an eye base. I can see where on some skin tones, this would be really beautiful, but doesn't really do much on me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This is perfect for an everyday eye shadow. I put it on from eyelash to eyebrow. The color is slightly shimmery but very, very subtle. It's a very natural "nude" color for someone with light to medium skin tone. It stays on all day and does not crease or fade. I love this stuff. It's so smooth and creamy, so it doesn't clump or dry up while you are trying to spread it on. I used to love the touch base for eyes by clinique, but I switched to this stuff and am so glad that i did!

I can't see why everyone doesn't love this. It is called NUDE sparkle - and that's what it is a nude color. It blends into my eyelid area and gives them a nice sheen. Love it. It's there, but it's not there. A great everyday item!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
this is good, but nothing to i would buy again. i would say it is okay, but nothing to get excited about. after a few uses i wear it rarely. i wouldn't use this on a daily basis, but all in all i give it a 3.

I'm torn on this product. While I love the color and the subtle sheen, it really creases on my oily lids. I wouldn't dare wear it without UDPP, but even when I use a primer I get some creasing after a few hours. So, if you never have an issue with creasing, I highly recommend this product. Otherwise, I would look elsewhere.

Touch Tint is the best cream eyeshadow, but I love it for an eyeshadow base. It makes my eye makeup last all day without any problems. It never dries out either like the Touch Base did. Great product!

I love touch tints, I have this one, the pink one and the mocha. I use the nude sparkle alone on my lid and under my brows, or underneath other colors as a base. They are simple and lovely and I have been buying them for a long time (although one tube will last you a really long time).
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Other
I really like this product. I can use it as an eyeshadow or as a base. I like the way it feels going onto my eyes, smooth and not sticky. It definitely makes a difference when I use it as a base- my eyeshadow shows up more and stays on for longer. Also, I have fair skin so it does show up when I use it alone and makes my eyes sparkle and look bluer which I really like! I recommend this product and I will definitely repurchase!

I love this product, but this color is non-existent on my lids. It actually matches my skin tone perfectly. Sooooooo the reason I gave it such a high review, is that this doubles as a fantastic eye shadow primer! I work 12 1/2 hour shifts, and my eye shadow always looks exactly the same at the end of my shift, when worn over touch tint.
So, even though I'm disappointed w/ the color, it's a great base.

I love this as an eyeshadow base and it can be worn by itself. Its a gorgeous shade and looks even better with a darker shadow layered over.
