Hello. The words base and primer seem to be used interchangeably, what is the difference between this hd base/primer and the base/primer pots? Sometimes I see hd called a primer then a base, same as the different colored pots. Thank You.

This primer really keeps my eyeshadow on but it is difficult to apply the eyeshadow smoothly sometimes. It gets patchy here and there. How do I avoid that? I usually wait a few mins before applying the eyeshadow to allow it to dry. Thanks!

Asked by: Funnygal
Hi there! You may also want to dab a small amount of eyeshadow base onto the lid and then smooth it out evenly.

Asked by: Candy_crush99
Hi there! If you want to pair up these goodies, be sure to use the Proof It! Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer first. Give it a minute or two to dry before applying the HD Eye Shadow Base. xoxo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is legit I haven't tried this to its full potential yet but I put this on for a couple of hours to get a test run in. My eyeshadow stayed on and there was minimum creases! Usually my eyeshadow gets rubbed off real quick but this helped it stay put.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad applicator The applicator is impossible to use - I find myself using a brush instead...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Holy Grail Shadow Base This perfect base goes on smooth, dries quickly, takes just a little product, and makes my shadow last 16+ hours which is record time on my oily lids. It is the only base I use now. If I could give this six stars, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only eyeshadow base i've ever used I've been using this product since 2015. This is amazing. No creasing, color blends in easily, and does not smell weird. Highly recommend to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy & Easy To Blend! Love how creamy and soft this primer is on the eyes! It basically goes on to the skin clear/skin coloured so it works with any coloured eye product. Not overly tacky either so it won't make any eye shadows look patchy! Quick and easy product.
