Alright, confession time. I have VERY oily eyelids! My skin is like the Sahara but my eyelids? Oh no, it’s an oil slick. Any eyeshadow I put on WILL crease in an hour if I do not use a primer. So, when people say they have found something as good as Nars Pro Prime or UD Primer Potion I am extremely skeptical.
About a month ago I picked up the NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base because so many people raved about it. I was skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised! It actually works. It keeps my eyeshadow from creasing for about 8-10 hours. I will be honest and say it doesn’t keep my eyeshadow crease proof for 12 hours like the Nars Pro Prime does but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper. My eyeshadow looks great for 8-10 hours depending on what I’m wearing.
The NYX Base also has a slight tint which I really like because I have quite dark eyelids. It knocks back the redness and any pigmentation I might have.
Final Verdict: It’s not as good as the Nars Pro Prime but it’s pretty darned close and for the price difference…I’ll go with the NYX!
