NYX Eyeshadow Base

There are many Eyeshadow Bases around but this one is the best IMHO. I purchased it for the sake of trying and not really expecting it to blow my socks off but this one came out a real gem!

I put it to the test one day when I needed to take my look from the office to dinner with a group of friends with nary a minute in the middle for touch ups. I put on my make up at 7am that morning and came home at 9pm and went straight to the mirror to have a look at how my eye make up looked. Having oily lids, I sometimes see creasing as early as noon and its not pretty! BUT on that fateful day, at 9pm I looked and looked and looked and WOW!!!! my lids looked as fresh as when I put on my make up that morning! Thats 14 hours that this base held my eyeshadow together my friends!

How can this be, I asked the eyeshadow Gods.....and the reply was: NYX eyeshadow base!

The color that I chose was ESB 03 which goes on a little light as you can see below but does help with making any eye color you apply on it just that little bit brighter.

Let me tell you that a very little bit goes a long way. Just pick up a little of the product with your ring finger and apply all over the lids up to the brow bone, wait about thirty seconds for it to set (well, I like to anyway but if you dont have time....go ahead) and you are good to go with putting on your eyeshadow.

Now this puppy is part of my daily staple. I spend long hours in the office some days and I am confident enough not to be checking my eyes for that awful line in my eyelid crease that gives my oily skin away!

Go online now and buy it!
