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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So so This is a comfortable texture with slight shade, but is some difficult to work with it. You need to work very quickly, because when it fixed it will be difficult to do something. But it fixed in 15 seconds. The product keeps the shadow well during the day and is useful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Causes shadow to crease and migrate Was excited to try this. Put it on one eye but not the other to compare the difference. A couple hours later I looked in the mirror and noticed the primed eye looked very different. I looked closer and all of the eye shadow was caked in the crease. The other eye without the primer still looked perfect.
