My take on Zoeva Long Wear Eyeshadow Fix (Matte):
Packaging: Zoeva eye shadow long wear fix matte base comes in a thin tube packaging with a needle like nozzle for dispensing product. The needle nose of the tube ensures that each time very little amount is dispensed for usage. List of ingredients with other information is being provided on the outer carton.
Variants: Zoeva eye shadow base comes in two variants:
–Matte- For matte shadows.
-Pearl- for shimmery and pearlescent shadows.
Texture & Finish: It is pretty thick creamy shadow base. It is quite lightweight and blends easily within seconds. It comes in complete matte finish. It gives a nude canvas for the shadows to work with. Most of the shades show up on my lid with this base underneath.
Longevity: I have worn several eye shadow bases from both drugstore and high end brands and I admit this is one of the best one I have used till date. Shadows stay for a long time over it. My matte shades for nearly 5 hours with minimal creasing. It keeps oiliness from my eye lid for whole day. We all have seen loose powder and foundation comprising of rice powder keeps our skin matte for a long time. Zoeva has used the same knowledge and incorporated it in this eye shadow base, which makes it a complete winner.
Effectiveness: Zoeva eye shadow base is one of the most fabulous eye shadow bases I have ever used. It stays close to whatever it claims. I am impressed with its formula, very little amount is required for both eyes.

Overall Rating: 4.75 out of 5
Will I repurchase it? I would love to but I think this time I will get either Kryolan or Inglot eye shadow base, as I have a habit of getting bored easily with same stuff.
My Overall Recommendation: Highly Recommended! Guys if you are looking for an eye shadow base for your matte shades, then surely check this out. It is a great product for people with oily lid, it is totally matte and significantly increases wear time of shadows without creasing. This base toned down my frosty shades and made them look wearable, so I quite liked it. However when I used my Inglot eye shadows (pearl), I felt those looked less intense. So next time I would use the pearl variant of the eye shadow base for my shimmery and pearlescent shadows.
