Can I use the nyx hd primer with this base, or should I use just one of the two?
Hi ShanJ! We would suggest applying only 1 of these products to the eye area to prevent a build-up. Thanks for your question!

Can I apply this with my finger or should i use a brush?
I'd definitely say finger just because it allows for a more even base in my experience.

Should you use a setting powder over it to prevent creasing or can you just wear it under your shadows?
Hi there! For the best results, apply your primer and give it a minute or two to set before brushing on eyeshadow. You also might want to check out the Proof It! Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer.

wat is the difference in the 3 eyshadow bases?
Hi there! White helps you achieve a brilliant pop of color. White Pearl gives your shadow a pearl finish. Skin Tone enhances color payoff but not as intensely as White or White Pearl. Black gives metallic shades, like our Prismatic Shadows, a beautiful boost. xoxo

Rated 1 out of 5 by DeborahMz from Great application but oily creases resulted I purchased this eyeshadow base in ESB03 skin tone. I was eager to try the product and did not do my research first on this site by reading reviews. My eyelids ARE NOT SUPER OILY. After reading many reviews that stated this product was oily and creased, I thought I would try it anyway, since there were more 5-star ratings. I cleansed my eyelids well and applied just enough product. Product went on smoothly and had a good consistency, and I liked the color. However, within an hour, my eyelids were both creased all the way across. This is by far the worst eyeshadow base I have ever tried. This was a waste of money. You can do better Nyx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brokebeautyguru from My holy grail I have dry skin. I’ve bought this product three times and I am honestly working on getting one in every color. I have the skin tone open for my everyday makeup and have a backup because I lost it and I can’t imagine my life without it. A few tips for anyone having trouble with the product: apply with a Concealer brush evenly and do not set! I found that if I set it my shadow would not be quite right. Less is more with this product. Your lids should just feel sticky. If your lids feel oily or messy take a clean concealer brush and take off the excess. Don’t be afraid to experiment on your wrist if you are having issues. I this to my friends when I do little makeup workshops because you can bend your wrist like you would blink your eye to see how much shadow the product needs. I honestly do not recommend this for oily skin at all! Dry-normal skin has the best results and I have worn eyeshadow for 12+ hours with little to no fall out with this product. Just a humble professional‘s opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LaurenT from A good back up Not my favorite thing I’ve purchased. This tends to crease and seems a bit oily for my already oily skin type

Rated 2 out of 5 by Becx from Eh This primer serves as a good base and allows eyeshadows to stick very well, but it is very very grainy feeling and the shimmer gets all over and is very hard to get off, and the shimmer also shows through most eyeshadows giving them a slight shimmer. I'm dissipointed becuase it works well, but the cons outweigh the pros.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Angel202 from Not my FAV I love NYX !!! Super excited when I got product, but it’s definitely not for me. It’s really oily, it creases and after a while my shadows are smeared all over the place. I’ll try using it again in a different way but only to practice, not when going out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Avalynette from Great as a non-shimmery highlighter I don't use this as an eyeshadow primer....but I LOVE this as a way to brighten up my face and highlight areas to bring out dimension after foundation makes me look a little blah and flat. I use it with a makeup sponge to dab on my chin, nose, and cheekbones and it blends so well with my foundation and just brings dimension and life. love it.
