Today I would like to tell you about my favorite, most used and most repurchased makeup item. I cannot even imagine applying my makeup without this gorgeous, absolutely effective, awesome makeup base – NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I can’t even say how I could have ever used my eyeshadows before priming my eyes with it – so incredibly good this is!
This base doesn’t dry out my sensitive eye lids as many bases tend to do. It comes out milky white and turns out absolutely transparent once you apply it. If you touch your eye lid it feels very smooth and silky and not at all sticky. All of the eyeshadows applied over it, no matter how poor the color payoff originally was, will show off very decently.
Moreover, the base does not alternate the color of the eyeshadow but simply intensifies it, make it more true to pan. Even my worst eyeshadows in terms of the pay-off turn out so beautiful that I can’t stop using them as I purchased these eyeshadow palette due to incredible colors in it – it’s an absolutely gorgeous MAC Temperature rising palette (limited edition, summer 2013) with unfortunately extremely weak color performance. But as you can see the eyeshadows applied over the base (the upper part of the swatch) look amazing when at the same time eyeshadows applied without the base (lower part of the swatch) barely show any color.
I am very glad that I discovered this eyeshadow base and I very, very rarely use anything else for my eyes’ makeup, as this NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($25.00) sticks to its words – it is very smudge proof – it prolongs the wear of makeup so much that I basically never see my eyeshadows crease by the end of the day or ever notice any fall out or smudging.
Of course, I think its worth knowing that I have quite a dry skin and many products may act differently and those who have very oily lids may experience creasing or smudging by the end of the day. Nevertheless, I am truly happy to have this base and I will keep using on daily basis because it an absolute makeup staple for me.
So, if you have any questions about this base – leave them in the comments down below and I will be glad to answer them.
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
Hugs and kisses,
