My Experience with NARS Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base :
It’s quite an iconic product so I was expecting all good things from it. And I have to say that it did live up to my expectations. I have been wearing a lot of eye makeup recently and the sole reason was to give NARS eyeshadow base a try. This did not fail me one single day.
It comes in matte black and white tube with a sponge tip applicator. The eyeshadow base looks white but it goes completely colorless upon application. the first few days, I was pretty confused about how much to apply or if I have actually applied all over my lid. 😐 Now I have gotten used to it. I just apply with applicator and spread it with my finger tip so that the base is applied all over evenly. It feels velvety smooth and honestly, makes the eyeshadow application a complete dream. It feels light, spreads easily, totally brightens up the eyeshadow color, and makes eyeshadow looking fresh all day long. I have tried using it with all kinds of eyeshadows and this eyeshadow base has worked with everything. In fact, my shimmery eyeshadows have looked so intact at the end of the day. 😀 It also prevents eyeshadow from creasing. It’s like, you apply this eyeshadow base before applying your eyeshadows and forget about your eye makeup. This thing will keep everything sorted. 🙂
The only things I don’t like is that damn matte packaging of NARS. IT GETS DIRTY!! grrr!! Also, since the packaging is not see through, you would not be able to tell when the product gets over.
Caused no irritation to lids. I use it on my lower lash line as well and it works just fine. No funky smell.
It’s an epic product. You MUST get it. :))
Rating : 4.5/5
