NYX Eyeshadow Base with Pearl Review & Photo's

I have been really keen to try one of the NYX Eye shadow bases, as I knew they were a great base for any vibrant eye shadow to apply over the top and are similar to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils.

The packaging says it is 'For 100x brightening effect' and 'set's base camp for true stay on, stay put, long eye shadow colours!'

 'Maximize the intensity, longevity and unashamed brilliance of your eye shadow statements with our eye shadow primer pots. Each of the three NYX Eye Shadow Bases for vibrant, pearl or neutral tones—creates a smooth canvas for colour, increases its durability and prevents fallout.'
Is how it is described on the NYX Website
As eye primers go I am a big fan as they intensify the shadow colour, have longevity and they help grip the shadow well.

These come in White, White Pearl and Skin Tone.
This comes in a clear plastic pot with a white lid. It contains 7g's of product, whereas the Bobbi Brown Long -Wear Cream Shadow only has 3.5g of product. NYX Products are also hypoallergenic, cruelty free and recyclable.

This feels like a lightweight cream which is silky and smooth in texture and not heavy on the eye at all.
This covered the eye well and is buildable; it blends out with no build up or flaking on the eye.

I used a MAC 242 to apply the base, but you can also use your finger to apply and blend. I felt the product applied really well to the eye and when applying the eyeshadow on top, it adhered better than not using a base or primer at all, it made the shadow pop and showed it's true colour.
The longevity of the product was great, I had no creasing and my eyeshadow stayed in place all day still showing the shadow's true colour with no dullness.

This is a snip at only £5 such great value for such a large amount of product whereas Bobbi Brown Long -Wear Cream Shadow is £18 for half the product which essentially does the same job.

Final Thought
This is defiantly worth every penny as it has a light weight consistency and great staying power. It also helps maximise shadow pigment and is amazing value for money which makes this is a must have for any staple make-up bag! I would love to see NYX come out with a selection of Coloured Eyeshadow Bases next.

 I award this product 4.5 out of 5.
