This product is great for vibrant colors!
I use this base when doing makeup for dance performances. The eyes need to be exceptionally bright for the audience and this base make the color *POP* amazingly. It also works beautifully with pigments. There is a picture on my profile where I used the base prior to applying color.
I'm not entirely sure how well it holds up for long periods of time, because generally the girls have it on for less than an hour and then we change makeup again.
All in all however, if you're looking for your shadows to show more vibrantly I would recommend this as a base.
Not a must have
They should not have named this product eyeshadow base because it is not really a base. Here in europe a base and primer are both names for a primer. So I thought this was a primer but it's not! It does crease on me without a primer. However this is a great product if you want to make your eyeshadow more vibrant. But you could also use the jumbo pencils for this so I don't reach for this often.
This works fabulously for me. It preps my eyes for shadows and neutralizes any veins/discoloration on the lids. My shadows look bolder and last longer. :) Definitely recommend this one, especially for the low price!
I loveee this stuff!! It's like concealer for your eyes! I don't really like using concealer or foundation to cover the veins and discoloration because it doesn't necessarily prime your eye or make the shadows stay on longer. But this stuff cancels out the color, veins, etc. on my lids amazingly. If I decide not to wear eyeshadow or anything, I still put this on to make my eyes look bigger and make my whole face look fresh. It says it's a base, but I find that it helps my eyeshadow stay on long without creasing like a primer. LOVE! <3
This primer works well enough for a few hours but then creases later on. It is easy to apply with a finger and goes on smoothly. Eyeshadow goes on well, since I got the skin tone things don't pop too much. I only use this primer when I am trying out a new look and not going out. However, I am interested in trying the white.
Makes colors pop!
I really love this base, I always use it over my primer and the white makes the bright colors very vibrant. I also use it for details like lines and dots, which I can leave white, or go over with any color of eyeshadow. It works great and I have never had any problems with creasing or smudging.
