NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
This smudge-proof eye shadow base uses a unique polymer and mineral powder blend to get a firm grip on color for long-lasting, gorgeous wear. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, it dries on contact and keeps the delicate eye lid smooth and ready for eye shadow application.
This fragrance-free product is ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested."
I agree with their claims!
This is my new holy grail eyeshadow base.
My eyelids are super oily!
This is the only product that I can use that actually keeps the oil at bay, lets eyeshadow adhere and makes colors pop. I have gotten 10 hours of wear without creasing using this product! It is a bit pricey at $24 for just .26oz. I bought mine from the NARS website, however, it is available on Sephora's website as well as drugstore.com. Although the product is white coming out of the tube, it goes on clear. Very little product is needed to achieve favorable results.
It has a doe foot applicator. The packaging is not ideal. Urban Decay listened to it's consumers by making their primer available in a tube. Aside from the high price, I would say this is the only drawback to this product. A little goes a long way and I have not finished the product.
I found it to be compatible with both drugstore and high end eyeshadows. I have used it as a primary base as well as alone just to keep the oil from greasing up my lids while wearing just eyeliner. Yes, I would definitely purchase this product again and highly recommend it to others.
