NYX Eyeshadow Base White Review

Base is different from Primer because primer protects your eye shadow(s) from the oil your skin produces and therefore makes your make up last longer without creasing. I have started using eye shadow bases a lot as they can really intensify the look, even lighter shadow can really pop up.  I love Maybelline Color Tatoo and MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, they work very well as a base. There are certain shadows which have really low pigmentation that NYX Eyeshadow Base in white can really make those eyeshadows pop up.  Read on to know more.

    My Experience:-
    This is the first eye shadow base I have ever purchased.  It comes in a tub packaging.  The main idea of a white eyeshadow base is to make colors ‘pop’ even more than they would on a skin tone or clear eye shadow base.  This was the only reasons why I chose this color.  It has a kind of baby product type of smell which personally do not bother me.  Texture of this is quite dry and thick in comparison to MAC paint pots and Maybelline Color Tattoos ones.  Less is more while using this product.  It dries very fast so you have to blend this fast after application otherwise it can give a patchy look.  It has shimmer in it but its very subtle.  And the eye shadows stay in place for 4-5 hrs without creasing, and it does intensify the color of the eye shadow a lot.

    Thumbs Up:-
    1.  Does not crease for 5-6 hrs.
    2.  Really intensify the eye shadows on eyelids.
    3.  Good price.
    4.  Smooth application.
    5.  Good quantity for the price.

    Thumbs Down:-

    1.  Contains mineral oil.
    2.  Tub packaging.
    3.  Sets very quickly, so you have to blend this really fast.

    These were my thoughts about this product, its a good product for the money and intensifies the eye shadow so much.  Hope this was helpful.
