Review for: White more...
I purchased this whilst riding a wave of nostalgia over the classic NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk" - the first eyeshadow base I ever tried. I wasn't a huge fan of "Milk", so I was hoping that this white eyeshadow base would be an improvement...and it wasn't.

This eyeshadow base is thick, and it doesn't blend particularly nicely over the eyelid. While it is very white and opaque, it's INCREDIBLY hard to blend out eyeshadow on top of this base. You get patchy looks where the shadow sticks to the cream base, and it's just not...cute. On top of that, when you DO finally get a decent eye look, this base doesn't increase the longevity of the eyeshadow at all - I notice creasing after just a few hours.

This was not worth even the small price I paid for this eyeshadow base, and I won't be repurchasing.

This eyeshadow base works great but there’s also cons to it as well. It definitely helps colors to pop more in which I love because I do a lot of colorful makeup looks. (As shown in picture below) however, if your eyes are hooded ..the primer leaks in the creases showing them drastically. So set it as soon as you apply it!! Other than that it’s great for cut creases and colorful eye looks!!

I have been using this primer for ages. I think I'm at my 2nd pot, which is saying a lot since I'm only loyal to a few products out there. First off, I have really oily eyelids so I'm prone to eyeshadow eventually creasing throughout the day. Ever since I've started using this base, my eyeshadow does not budge; it does not even fall out or crease onto that area between my brows and lids. Also, I find that a little goes a reaaaally long way, which is an added bonus to its already super affordable price. This is definitely a product on my holy grail list.

I love this eyeshadow base in skin tone shade. It's easy to apply with fingers and helps the eyeshadows pop and last all day long. Since I started using this 2 years ago, I find it very convenient for me. The quality is awesome and the price very affordable. I recommend it for all skin types. It sticks to the kids and doesn't move even with oily eyelids like mine

I definitely recommend this specific product if you're looking for a very good eyeshadow base to brighten your most light pigmented colors because not only is it super affordable and under $10. But it also offers the most opaque white base that you can offer and plehn's out super smoothly and it doesn't take on as well so you can apply it with a brush or your finger it's super creamy but it does hold any color amazingly I highly recommended for any beauty Enthusiast to have in their stash of goodies

This product is just okay. It doesn’t a decent job and what it’s promoted as. It evens out your eyelid skin tone and gives a decent base for makeup. It creases after about 6 hours, not terribly but you can tell and I’d imagine with a darker eye look it’d be very noticeable. The price is great and if you’re just starting out with makeup or on a budget then it would be a good buy for you. I personally think there are better eyeshadow bases/primers out there for only about 10$ more.

I shouldn't have gotten this in the skin tone color, as it's too dark for me, despite layering on tons of eyeshadow. However, it does hold up well, adds more pop to colors that aren't that pigmented, and lasts all day. I recommend getting the white if you plan on using lighter colors of shadow.

This eyeshadow base isn't my favorite but it does a decent job. I usually use wetnwild photo focus eyeshadow base but my lids are dry and it made them more dry. This base is creamier and really helps on the days that my eyes feel dry and tight. I'm also very fair skinned so the white base isn't really a big difference in tone. I was suprised that this worked for me. Other reviews said it smelled bad or doesn't spread right. I didn't find any of these issues. My eyeshadow lasted all day but I didn't find that it made bright colors even brighter. Most white bases are supposed to do that but not this one. That's one of the only con's. I also found cheaper alternatives that do better jobs. Nyx product prices are increasing and I don't think they are worth the increased price.

This eye shadow primer base for brightening is fantastic! I love how creamy this is. It has a lot of tiny, tiny shimmers in it. This definitely does it's job by brightening the eye shadow and making then POP. The only thing I don't like is how it creases in on the eye lid. It makes the eye shadows look fifty times better, that's for sure. NYX Eyeshadow Base The middle pic is the base by itself. The last pic shows the difference between the non-primed eye shadow on top and the primed eye shadow on the bottom. I notice a HUGE difference, don't you?

If you’re on a tight budget, this works great as an alternative to M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot ! I’ve had to use this several times and honestly do not see a difference in the longevity of my shadows. I do find though that the formula is a lot more moisturizing than the paint pots, which I do enjoy bc it makes it very easy to apply while minimizing the amount of tugging on my eyes. I love this primer a lot!!!

Can you rate this as a dupe for UD's Primer Potion? I love UD but am looking for a less expensive alternative.
