Love of the week - NYX HD Eyeshadow base

Hi everyone,

Sorry for being MIA for so long. Lots of changes have happened of late - new job, new dog, new house...Seems like I just dont have time for myself anymore.

Anyhoo, I bought NYX HD Eyeshadow base product as a cart filler when I placed my order many months ago.  It's one of the best primers I have used so far, and have since then returned my Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP)

Ulta sells it for $6.99, but they frequently have sales. I bought it when they had a 20% coupon going on.

The product is a pale yellow but goes on clear. It's serum like and is a little tacky when first applied. You need to give it a min or so to set or else eyeshadow goes on patchy. UDPP in comparision is way too pricey, goes on too thick on my lids and makes then crepey.

What is your favourite eyeshadow primer?

Hey girly, I missed you! I'm glad you found a primer you like. I remember you were having trouble with so many others.

Maybe you can set a goal to post at least once a week? That way we can enjoy your posts regularly but you won't feel too hard pressed to post all the time. I set a similar goal for my cooking blog. I try to post there at least twice a week. :)

Oh this looks like such a nice primer at a good price. I wish we had NYX here in India :/ I've been using Revlon Lash Fantasy mascara primer as shadow base. A bit sticky feeling at first but works wonderfully.

I love this and use this as well, but to be honest you should be careful with it because I dropped it once and the bottle was so brittle that it shattered and I wasted it :(

But I bought another! :)

I still think I'll be buying UDPP sometime though.

I loved it too, but the packaging sucked for me. After 3 months or so, the top detiorated and I wasn't able to close it anymore. So, a lot of product wasted.
