Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

Ever apply eyeshadow and go throughout the day wondering why in the world the shadow creases, rubs off, ends up lop-sided, and just looks downright terrible by the end of the day? I recently started using an eyeshadow base, and oh my goodness, night and day difference!


I have been using the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base for about 6 months. It has pretty much changed my life (as it relates to eyeshadow…and I’m not exaggerating). I am prone to oily lids, and this stuff keeps my eyeshadow locked in place all day. When I say all day I don’t mean 5 hours or so, no, I mean 12 hours or more.


It is a sheer white color. It’s not white when blended into the lid, but there is a hint of brightness that provides a clean base for the eyeshadow.


If you are searching for a good eyeshadow base/primer, check out the Nars. It’s a little pricey, but so far it’s worth it. It will last me a while because it takes the smallest amount to be effective.

  1. I have used Urban Decay for the past several years and have had great results from it. It is slightly cheaper than the Nars and you get a little more. I'm wishing I could find a drugstore brand that works well with a lower price point. Fortunately, since I only wear eye shadow a few times a week a little bottle lasts a long time. Have a great week!


  2. I used to use the Urban Decay, but I switched to Nars and like it better! I've tried a few drug store brands but none of them have been quite as good…I've heard that ELF and Boots has a good face primer, but not sure about the eyes!
