Product Spotlight: NYX Eyeshadow Base w/ Pearl

This is the NYX Eyeshadow Base w/ Pearl.

The website says: Maximize the intensity, longevity and brilliance of your eye shadow with our eye shadow primer pots. Each of the three NYX Eye Shadow Bases – white for vibrant, pearl for shimmers, or neutral for darker shades – creates a smooth canvas for color, increases its durability and prevents powder fallout.

The packaging says: Set base camp for true stay on, stay put, and stay long eye shadow colors!”

First Impressions: I was intimidated by the shimmer in this. I’ve never seen an eyeshadow primer with legit shimmer in it, but it tends to work out if you wear shimmery eyeshadow or if you just want to add a little shimmer. I like the packaging, and the price is great for the amount of product you receive, considering the little amount of eyeshadow primer you need on a daily basis.

Packaging: This is packaged in a little pot/jar. It makes it a little weird to use, but it is kinda cute and plain.

Scent: Kylor says this smells like play-doh. I think this has that fake “Grandma’s Perfume” scent.

Color/Pigmentation: This has a very bright white color with a bit of shimmer to it, the white kind of blends out into your skin and becomes sheer and you’re just left with a bit of shimmer. As for pigmentation, it doesn’t matter as it’s all blended out in the end anyways. I don’t use this for everyday wear though, only when I want that little something extra (because of the shimmer).

Staying Power: This one is decent, it stays on for most of the day but is useless when it comes to cream shadows. Good luck getting the shimmer off, though:)

Details On Mine: I received mine because one of my friends accidentally purchased 2, and I bought one off of her, I think I paid about $4.00-$5.00 USD for mine, and it is full-size, 0.25 OZ. I would repurchase this, but it the other shades it is available in to try them out and see if I like them any better then I liked this one.

Directions/How To Use It: There are no “directions” that I could find anywhere from NYX, but I just put this on like regular eyeshadow primer.

Price/Availability: This is available here for $7.00 USD/0.25 OZ.
