    Eye Shadow Base is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It’s a miss for me....sorry Bought this in an emergency. Travelled and found I hadn’t packed all my makeup, so I had to quickly run to a boots in London. This is one of the worst eyeshadow primers I’ve ever used. I have combination/oily skin and my eyes look oily, but they’re not. This is basically like a really creamy concealer that sits on top of the skin and isn’t overly sticky. It takes ages to dry and even managed to crease on my deep socketed eyes! It also moved and became patchy before drying. I don’t usually like using concealer on my eyes, but, if given the choice of this or concealer, I would use the concealer without a doubt. When I applied my eyeshadows I found I had to put way more on than usual. Then when I blended the colours faded, started coming off and became really patchy. I’ve tried using it since the initial purchase and Set it with powder BEFORE applying shadows, but they turn out even more patchy and uneven. However they did blend slightly better. I doubt I’ll use this much. Sorry Nyx. Take my advice: the proof it and waterproof proof it primers are WAY better. Definitely buy them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t stop from creasing I have oily eyelids and this did nothing to stop my eyeshadow from creasing even when I set it with matte powder.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I recently bought this eyeshadow base, it had really bad coverage and itwas very clumpy, eyeshadows could not be blended and the eyeshadow added went very patchy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didnt I buy this before? I love this primer, it is so good to keep my eye shadows in place, helps intensify the dark shades even better. I like the texture - sets the perfect canvas. I usually dab a bit of powder on top to set it and then start my eye makeup. Have no complaints, will be buying the nude color now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant as base and primer and the pot lasts forever I bought this about about 4 years ago in the white and I am still using the same pot now. I use it most days I wear eye shadow and it really makes a difference in keeping your eye shadow from creasing, giving great colour pay off and making your shadow last all day. I mainly use this just on my lid. I can't believe after so many years it is still creamy and not dried out at all and I still have about 1/4 of a pot left. I have tried other bases (from cheap to really expensive) and this beats them all hands down. It is also really great for when you use shimmery or glitter shadows on your lid it really holds them. I have sometimes have slightly oily lids and find this is fantastic at keeping the oil at bay so my eye shadow doesn't budge. I am 48 years young so can also confirm it is great for all ages even those of us in our prime (No, we are not old BUT we are not young although young at heart Lol) I really cannot find any fault with this item at all

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely make colour pop I got this in white and it definitely make the colour pop and gives a smooth base for the eye shadow.It lost 1 point for me as it doesn't make my eye shadow stay but all day don't get me wrong it keeps it in place most of the day but by the evening my shadow is starting to fade a bit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes such a difference I bought this a few days ago in white and straight away I was impressed. It made such a difference to eyeshadows that I normally struggle with because of pigmenting. The best part is, it works as a primer too, so I only have to apply once. However a little bit goes a long way and if I put too much on, I struggle to blend properly and it goes everywhere. I would advise putting a tiny bit on at a time, and using your finger to blend it out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Creases and patchy I bought this recently in the 'skin tone' shade which would more correctly be called 'fake tan gone wrong' as it is very orange toned. Not only is the colour very off, it creases within minutes of applying even when set with powder and doesn't apply smoothly leaving any eyeshadow applied looking patchy and irregular in colour. Overall, awful and wish I'd never wasted £6 on a pot.
