|NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base ($25) |
I got this as a Sephora points perk or a GWP
The NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base comes in a tube packaging, similar to a lipgloss complete with the doe foot applicator. It's a clearish white primer and dries transparent. A little bit is all you need, and it does a great job of holding on to shadows all through the day as well as getting the eyeshadows to look just a bit more vibrant.

I have applied a lot more than I would use on my eyelids, which is why there is a whitish cast.
On my eyelids with much less used, it dries almost transparent.
|NARS Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base |
Eyeshadow applied with/without a base. I don't think it intensifies the shadow color much, but I guess
that would depend on the quality/texture of the eyeshadow. It does help the shadow go on more evenly.
|NARS Smudge-Proof Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base |
I brushed off the eyeshadow swatches with a soft cloth.
The primer obviously did a great job at holding on to the shadow!
Bottom-line, if I could pick any primer I want, I would definitely buy the NARS Eyeshadow Base, but if I was being sensible, I would probably just go with the UD Primer.
