NYX Eyeshadow Base Primer


Since I’m going through a current primer obsession (seriously, it’s getting bad..), I’ve felt the need to try numerous primers these past few weeks. One that I’ve had an interest in for some time has been the NYX Eye Shadow Base Skin Tone Primer. I think it’s because it slightly resembles MAC’s skin colour paint pots and I’m still trying to find a reasonable dupe.

I just love the packaging of these and how much product there is. It comes in a pot and I use a small concealer brush or synthetic hair brush to apply for hygienic reasons. You really do get more than your moneys worth as I find a lot of my other eye primers tend to run out really quickly.  It’s a creamy, skin toned base that is supposed to intensify your eyeshadow giving it something to hold onto and make it last longer. The formula is creamy yet dry, which I find the perfect consistency to apply and blend. It is also available in white and and pearl. If you have a pale skin tone I would recommend going for one of the other colours as this can look a bit too orange and dark.

This is one of my favourite budget-friendly primers at the moment. It definitely makes applying eyeshadow a lot easier, lasts all day on me, hides any discoloration and evens the lids out. However, if I were to repurchase this I’d probably go for the white because it’s a more universal shade. The 7g pot retails for $7 from the NYX website or $12.95 from Target Australia.

Have you ever tried this? What is your favourite eye primer?
