Review: NYX Eyeshadow Base in White

Over a year ago now, I did a swap on YouTube with the lovely Megan from EasyAccessBeauty. She sent me some absolutely awesome products, and amongst them was the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White. I had mentioned to Megan that I was interested in a white base, and was really excited to try the one she sent me.

I love the fact that it is in a pot – it makes the product easy to reach and apply. You also get a generous amount of product – I’ve used mine numerous times and feel like I haven’t scratched the surface (literally!)

When it says it’s a base, it is a BASE! The pigmentation of the product is fantastic – a lot of products claiming to be ‘white’ can look a bit washed out, but this forms a solid base to build up colourful looks:

You might be able to see on the packaging – it claims to make eyeshadow ‘100x more vivid’ – this is obviously a huge exaggeration, but I will say that it does make a difference. If you’ve watched many of my YouTube videos, you’ll know that I like to use this base when doing a dramatic or gothic look – it really helps to ‘white-out’ the eye area in those situations.

I would say that this is a great product for anyone after a solid, powerful eyeshadow base. It isn’t necessarily a PRIMER (there’s a lot of confusion about that one – this doesn’t claim to make your eyeshadow last longer) but works fantastically as a colour base.

Stay Creative,

    I have the skin tone one . It’s a bit too orange for me and indeed it is a BASE . I used it as primer and it creases like hell after a few hours … 😀
    But as base it works very well . I don’t have the white one because i use the Jumbo Pencil in milk if i need a white base 🙂
