This is, by far, my FAVORITE Eyeshadow Base / Eye Shadow Primer!
NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
As I get "older" and my skin changes, my eyelids have changed as well. Eyeshadow base is a must for me now as my lids get slicker and slicker.
I have tried a few bases...
The obvious - UDPP (in original, Sin and Eden), Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC paint pots, Paula Dorf
The not so obvious - Lumene Eye Makeup Base, Np Set Eye Primer, & the list goes on.
This NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is by far the best I have tried. It is very lightweight, goes on white but dries quickly and sheer and absorbs any oil you might have on your lids. Bonus - no fragrance! It last ALL day and my shadow (both creams and powders) does NOT budge. It's a little expensive - for a .26 oz tube (with a doe foot applicator) it runs $24.
I only wish it came in a squeeze tube. CAN YOU HEAR ME NARS?
Now that I think about it, I might test drive this on NARS Cream Eye Shadows, which crease horribly on me, no matter what primer I use. This could be the ultimate test for me. If it doesn't crease with their own cream shadows, it will stay my HG!
