Hello friends. I am back with another beauty product review, and this time, it’s the NYX Eyeshadow Base. I stumbled upon the NYX base last week. After using it for the last couple of weeks, I thought, why not post a review of this product for my readers. So, here I am with the NYX eyeshadow base review. I will also throw some light on the different shades offered by NYX for their eye makeup foundation. Let’s get started.
The First Impressions
Cute round-shaped pots for beauty products are my weak spot. I hate to admit it, but I have an urge to try every product that comes in a small round glass pot. My first purchase of NYX eyeshadow base was a result of this guilty pleasure of loving cute containers. However, it wasn’t one of the regretful ones. I love using the NYX eyeshadow primer for my eye makeup. You might have noticed from my previous reviews that I am a big fan of eye makeup. So far, I’ve tried almost every glam product that can enhance the beauty of my eyes. The NYX eyeshadow base is my first layer of makeup since the day I bought it.
Texture and Feel of NYX Eyeshadow Base
The overall composition of the NYX eyeshadow base is creamy. Even a small drop of the foundation can spread evenly along your eyelids. However, you won’t notice any considerable difference in the skin tone. NYX has worked marvelously to prove a natural colored finish. I feel a baby powder-like aroma after applying the base. But it fades almost instantly. It is not noticeable until someone pokes their nose to your eyes. Which is highly unlikely.
The efficiency of NYX Eyeshadow Base
In my daily use, I didn’t notice any smudge in my eye shadow till the evening. My eye makeup retained its charm for more than 7 hours. Some creases were visible after prolonged exposure to the sun. Oily skin is not a good friend of the NYX eyeshadow base either. You will get varied results according to your skin type. So make sure you test the product before making your final decision. In most cases, your shadow will stay put for most of the day.
Shades of NYX Eyeshadow Base
There are four primary shades offered by NYX. You can choose one according to your skin tone and the color palette of your makeup. Here are the details of each shade:
- Black NYX Eyeshadow Base
For the shiny parties, you need glittery eye makeup. Colors like neon green and peacock shadow are standard in the party makeup. You can add quirkiness to your eyeshadow with a black base. The NYX black base offers a balanced contrast that highlights your eyes.
- Skin Tone NYX Eyeshadow Base
The skin tone shade is an essential shade for regular eye makeup. You can apply subtle shadows to your eyelids over the skin tone NYX eyeshadow base.
- White NYX Eyeshadow Base
The pure white NYX eyeshadow base is perfect for both light and dark shadows. If you prefer using a variety of colors for eyeshadow, you can use a white base to balance the richness.
- White Pearl NYX Eyeshadow Base
White pearl shade has darker undertones than the white NYX eyeshadow base. You can prefer white pearl over regular white if you don’t like a very shiny foundation. Visibly you will only notice the difference in bright light.
Pros and Cons of NYX Eyeshadow Base
- The primer blends effortlessly with any eye makeup.
- NYX eyeshadow base can retain the shadow for more than 7 hours.
- The eyeshadow base is lightweight and easy to carry regularly.
- The makeup starts to smudge soon on the oily skin.
