My Take on NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pearl:
It contains very fine shimmer. It helps pop out the color of an eyeshadow. It increases the opacity of sheer eyeshadows. If you apply matte eyeshadows over this base, they turn shimmery.
I am not sure if one can carry off a daytime look with this base, but if applied very lightly, it doesn’t look too shimmery. At times, it does change the color of the eyeshadow by a shade or so.
Here is a picture where I have used sheer shimmery eyeshadow. You can notice that there is a slight difference in the shade when applied on the base.
It gives a smooth application and stays put the eyeshadow. It also helps control the fallout in case of shimmery eyeshadows. It creases after 4 hours in the hot and humid climate of Mumbai, but during winter, it can easily go upto 6 -7 hours. It may crease badly on very oily eyelids.
I tried splashing water and didn’t notice smudging even after patting it with dry cloth. I usually use olive oil to clean it off, but I tried using hand wash to clean the swatches and it did come off after rubbing 2 to 3 times, so I am guessing that it would come off even with oil-free makeup removers.
Pros of NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pearl:
- Intensifies the eyeshadow.
- Helps control fallout.
- Little goes a long way.
- Inexpensive for the quantity and quality.
Cons of NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pearl:
- Quite expensive in India as compared to the other countries.
- May crease badly on oily eyelids.
- Creases in hot and humid weather.
- Jar packaging, you will have to use a brush or else keep hand sanitizer ready by your side.
