Review: NYX Eyeshadow Base `Skintone`

Hi beauties, if you have read my post about eyeshadow reviews, i always mentioned to use an eyeshadow base/primer before applying your eyeshadow. yes, eyeshadow base is one of the important thing on eye makeup. an eyeshadow base will make your eyes makeup more vibrant, pop and much more last longer. it made your eye makeup less powdery too because you don't need to apply lot of eyeshadow to get a vivid color.

I remember when i'm newbie on makeup things, i used a lip balm on my lids to make my eyeshadow looks more pop, LOL!  because i didn't have any idea what kind of product should i use. After i joined on a female forum, i get lot on info there. finally, i knew what kind of product that i should to used. Yes, an eyeshadow base or eye primer! there are lot of brand of eyeshadow base and primer out there and i have tried a lot since that day. One of them is eyeshadow base from NYX brand. It's a good stuff for you in case you want to start buying an eyeshadow base on a average budget. and today i'm gonna share with you an opinion about this eyeshadow base.

Product Name:
 NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skintone

What This (nyx claims) : 

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 color, increases its durability and prevents fallout.

Price :
 IDR 60k - 80k

Where to Buy : 
I bought this eyeshadow base here (click)

Packaging :

NYX eyeshadow base comes in a tiny transparent jar with a white screw cover. Of course the packaging is not kinda hygienic because basically you must dipping a finger to take the product. That's why i always prefer tube packaging that much more hygienic.

Color & Texture:
NYX eyeshadow base is available in 3 shades. White, pearl and skintone, mine is skintone. Like the name, this eyeshadow color have a skintone color. light beige with a little bit tone of ivory, it's similar with concealer color. Looks so natural on my eyelids, even without eyeshadow over this base.

This eyeshadow base has a smooth & creamy texture, very easy to blend. You only need a tiny amount to covering all over eyelid. i think for the size,although it comes in tiny jar, this eyeshadow base will be last for a long time because you only need a tiny amount for every application.

My Opinion:
is it make eyeshadow vivid, pop and vibrant? absolutely YES. this eyeshadow base has amazing job to make eyeshadow much more pop and vibrant. This base can make un-pigmented eyeshadow will show up very-very well. I think nyx eyeshadow base is the best for make eyeshadow more vibrant compared with another brand. i never found another better than this.

is it waterproof? Yes. when you use this eyeshadow base and then you go for swimming or washing face, this base will hold your eyeshadow very well from the water.

is it make eyeshadow last longer? Yes. it can make my eyeshadow stays for 5-6 hours. quite well.

is it crease proof? unfortunately it's not so, since this eyeshadow base has very creamy texture. It doesn't have a silicone texture like an eye primer. Eye primer will do a better job to hold an eyeshadow from creasing but i think primer doesn't doing much to make un-pigmented eyeshadow become a vibrant like an creamy base.

if you have a super oily eyelid (like me) i suggested to use an primer too underneath this base, such like a $1 ELF eyelid primer. it's a perfect combination. still get the super vibrant color and my eyeshadow is still crease-less, but if your eyelid not so oily, this base will work great on you.

overall, this eyeshadow base is quite a good deal for the price. considering it does amazing job to make eyeshadow much more vibrant..
 pros :
- creamy texture and very easy to blend
- decent price
- does amazing job to make eyeshadow much more vivid, vibrant and pop
- only need a little amount
- waterproof
- make eyeshadow stays quite longer.

- unhygienic packaging
- not so crease-proof for super oily eyelid like mine.. huks.

So, thats my opinion..
thx for reading and have a nice day friends...
