NYX Eyeshadow Base Review

Hey guys! I was rambling on about my love for my NYX Eyeshadow Base in White in a post a few days ago and that’s when it occurred to me that I love this product soo much that it totally deserves its own post and review.

NYX Eyeshadow Base review

OVERALL REVIEW: 8.5

Packaging: Comes in a small round container with a twist on lid. It’s a little bit of a bother to get your fingers in there, especially if you have long nails, but you can always use some sort of tool to scrape a little up. 7/10

Longevity: I pair this with a primer but when I use it my eyeshadows usually stay vibrant and crease free all day long. 9/10

Application: Easily spreadable when dabbing with finger. 9/10

Texture: Slightly thick and tacky consistency is great for holding and intensifying eyeshadows. 9/10

This product comes in three colors, Skin Tone, White and White Pearl. Skin Tone is best suited for use with neutral eyeshadows, White will created added vibrancy to all shadows and White Pearl will created added vibrancy while also adding a pearl/shimmer effect. White is my favorite!
