NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone

I've used plenty of eyeshadow primers in my lifetime, from high end to drugstore, and my all time favorite would have to be the NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone; it retails for $7.00 through the NYX site and at Ulta; and it is worth every single penny.

The eyeshadow base comes in a jar which I have to admit initially bothered me because of sanitary reasons, however I've been using a concealer brush to dip and apply this product on my eyelids and my dissatisfaction quickly went away!

The texture of the base is amazing, it actually feels like a smooth concealer which is wonderful because it applies without any effort at all; it also blends in perfectly!  I love that it has a tiny bit of tacky feeling to it once you place it on your lids (not uncomfortable at all) because I am able to pat on a little bit of eyeshadow and it just lays on perfectly.

Even the least pigmented shadows come to life when used with this eyeshadow base, and I love that I don't have to pack on too much eyeshadow with this primer! Lasting power is amazing, I've never once had my eyeshadow crease with this base and the longest I've worn it would have to be over 12 hours...with humidity and sweating!

I want to also mention that a tiny bit of base is really all that you need, which is awesome because this product will last you a very long time, what's even more awesome than that...? Well this product will not dry out even if you've had it forever! I purchased a few (as backups) and never once did any "old" jars dry up, they are all as smooth and silky as they were from day 1!
I highly recommend the NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone, I haven't tried any of their other colors which are white and white pearl, but I can speak on the skin tone base which is completely amazing, so affordable, worth every single penny, this will not be a purchase you regret!  Have you tried this base before? It is my favorite and just can't wear makeup without it!

  2. Never tried any of the NYX bases..might have to add that to my already long wish list haha

  3. I have the white one. I've had it for at least two years, but I'm thinking more like 3 & it's just as creamy & easy to apply as the day I bought it. I love it.
