    Eye Shadow Base is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 228.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My holy grail I have dry skin. I’ve bought this product three times and I am honestly working on getting one in every color. I have the skin tone open for my everyday makeup and have a backup because I lost it and I can’t imagine my life without it. A few tips for anyone having trouble with the product: apply with a Concealer brush evenly and do not set! I found that if I set it my shadow would not be quite right. Less is more with this product. Your lids should just feel sticky. If your lids feel oily or messy take a clean concealer brush and take off the excess. Don’t be afraid to experiment on your wrist if you are having issues. I this to my friends when I do little makeup workshops because you can bend your wrist like you would blink your eye to see how much shadow the product needs. I honestly do not recommend this for oily skin at all! Dry-normal skin has the best results and I have worn eyeshadow for 12+ hours with little to no fall out with this product. Just a humble professional‘s opinion.

    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 A good back up Not my favorite thing I’ve purchased. This tends to crease and seems a bit oily for my already oily skin type

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh This primer serves as a good base and allows eyeshadows to stick very well, but it is very very grainy feeling and the shimmer gets all over and is very hard to get off, and the shimmer also shows through most eyeshadows giving them a slight shimmer. I'm dissipointed becuase it works well, but the cons outweigh the pros.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my FAV I love NYX !!! Super excited when I got product, but it’s definitely not for me. It’s really oily, it creases and after a while my shadows are smeared all over the place. I’ll try using it again in a different way but only to practice, not when going out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as a non-shimmery highlighter I don't use this as an eyeshadow primer....but I LOVE this as a way to brighten up my face and highlight areas to bring out dimension after foundation makes me look a little blah and flat. I use it with a makeup sponge to dab on my chin, nose, and cheekbones and it blends so well with my foundation and just brings dimension and life. love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bold colors I´ve been using it for several ocassions and my eyeshadow looks stay put for hours. I apply it with a round brush and doesn´t crease through the day

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but OILY This product helps your bright eyeshadows appear more pigmented, but it’s extremely oily. My eyelids always crease with this product. The white jumbo pencil is better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An actual multi-tasker I ordered the skin tone, got in the mail and thought ‘ I don’t know about this’. It looked a bit too dark for my skin tone. Don’t worry because not only will your powder or foundation blend well, you can use this under your eyes as a base for your concealer too! I may try the white in the future, but I am very pleased with this now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Eyeshadow Base ever!! I brought this product a couple a days ago in skin tone and white. I needed something affordable and I knew with NYX I would get my money’s worth. I honestly don’t think I’ll be buying another eyeshadow base in a while.

    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.
    Date published: 2018-08-13
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Creasing!! Every time I use the product it creases and peels. I have pretty normal skin. But it literally last for 5 minutes and already peels!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute rubbish No idea how some people thought this was okay. You can tell when you have it on your finger by the texture of it that it's not tacky at all. It's literally just a cream eye shadow. And if you've ever tried putting powder eye shadow over cream eye shadow you know that it creases horribly and feels sticky and gross. That's exactly what this product does. Actually not sure if this was made for April Fool's Day or something, cos it's basically an anti-primer. It's so bad that I stopped using it before I bought a new one, and still wore eye shadow, without primer, which inevitably creased a bit, but actually significantly less than with this primer underneath. Had to chuck it in the bin after a couple uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base but for oily eyes powder it! I bought two nude and one white, i have to say if you have oily lids powder it down otherwise like any good base it will make its way all over or crease!

    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 1 out of 5 by from White Vivid Eyeshadow Base Not a good product. Does not apply evenly and my eyeshadow creases badly. I only used it once.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I was hoping to replace my favourite product which is not produced anymore and decided to try NYX. What a let-down! On my eyelids, it does not stay even for an hour - eyeshadows become greasy and the whole make-up looks like I've been doing sport for 2 hours minimum. Bad, NYX, really bad(

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's alright I have hooded eyes so always looking for ways to keep clumping from forming in the creases. This one does okay, but still clumps towars the end of the day. Better than not having anything, but will keep looking.
    Date published: 2018-02-05
    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 3 out of 5 by from Good color payoff, creases I bought this about 2 weeks ago, and been trying it out. It creased on me, but worked well on my sister and niece.
    Date published: 2018-01-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always in My Toolkit - A Perennial Favorite I have purchased this product again and again. I like the texture and the nude color. It creates a canvas for my eye makeup and, once set with powder, lasts all day without too much fading. It's my go-to shadow base. When bought on special or even at full price, its a real bargain, too!
