NYX HD Eyeshadow Base

AKA the only eye primer you will ever need; ever. 

Prior to purchasing this, I'd been loyal to Urban Decay's Primer Potion. That stuff works, but I never finish a tube before it goes bad. If you're a make-up artist, ignore that, but for me there's just too much waste. 

For quite a while, I've been without a primer because I didn't want to splash the cash on a repurchase. After scouring the internet for hours, I took a punt on this offering from NYX. Safe to say I'm glad I did. 

This eye primer is pretty much a bang on dupe for the Primer Potion. Besides keeping your shadow in place all day, this also offers some coverage. If I'm being honest, I always wished the Urban Decay one had that. The NYX one evens everything out (veins etc) and provides a beautiful, almost blank canvas. 

Besides the product itself being wonderful, the packaging is a joy. I've been unlucky enough to experience the Primer Potion while it's been a squeezy tube. This is great because you have control over the amount but sometimes too much does come out. What then? The NYX primer has a handy doe foot applicator, and it really does dispense the right amount of product. 

Considering other budget eye primers I've tried have been disasters, this has been a great surprise. I don't know about you, but I like finding products like these. It proves you really don't have to spend a lot for great quality. 

If you're in the market for a top notch eye primer you can find it here for £5.50 (£10.50 less than the Urban Decay). Happy Shopping
