NYX HD Eyeshadow Base Review and Swatches

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Prep your eyelids with this lightweight eye makeup primer that evens skin tone, smooths lines and ensures lasting makeup application. The High Definition Eye Shadow Base conceals creases and pumps up the vibrancy of your eye shadow.”

This product is labelled as a base but NYX also calls it a primer.

I would call it a primer.  When I think of a base, I think of the NYX Jumbo Pencils or other colored bases.

The color is a very light beige, but it’s so close to my skin tone that it looks clear in the picture.  It doesn’t really help even out skin tone because it’s so light colored.

It’s super silky feeling, not sticky, but shadow still sticks to it pretty well.

The issue is that this never seems to set.  This product is so slippery that any cream base or product applied right on top of it will just blend together and smudge and crease.  After about 5 or 6 hours my shadows start to crease.

 

Pros

Cruelty Free

Silky Texture

Transparent

 

Cons

Doesn’t seem to set

Doesn’t even out skin tone

Creases easily
