Hello and hello again. On Saturday, I went to a charity fundraiser and created a really beautiful, vibrant eyeshadow look—and when I tried to take pictures to show you, I realized it was dark outside and between the lighting and my camera, I was just not going to do the look justice. So instead, I bring you a review of the main tool I used for this look, Nyx Eyeshadow Base in Pearl.
What It Claims: Claims to make eyeshadows more vibrant and to help them last longer without creasing.
What It Actually Does: It definitely helps make your eyeshadow pop. Below I provided proof of just how much brighter it can make eyeshadow. Because of the pearl finish, it also makes eyeshadows a bit more shimmery. As to making it last longer–eh. I put primer under it, but really I think it’s the layer directly below the eyeshadow that affects whether it will crease. This started to crease on me around the 4 hours mark, which is longer lasting than eyeshadow on its own, but only half the wear time of when I use a primer instead.
Cruelty-Free: You better believe it.
So what do you think? Have you tried this product? Do you have a different go to base? Let me know in the comments below!
