NYX Eyeshadow Base Review


Hello pretty ladies! Today I’ll be reviewing the Nyx eye shadow base. It is available in 3 colors- Pearl, White and Skin Tone.

I have it in Skin Tone.

I purchased it online from porkdaisy.com I have shopped from this website before and I love it!

I ordered it on 25th March and received it on 4th April. Pretty quick huh? And I paid 7.39 USD for it (including shipping).

What the product claims: To get the maximum brilliant color of eyeshadow on your eye,  an eye primer is must! Apply eyeshadow base to eyelids, then apply NYX’s high-pigmented eyeshadows and see the colors pop with vibrant and sparkling luster. Eyeshadow Base grabs and firmly holds finely milled powder so color in the pot is what ends up on your eye – without a pinch lost. (from website)

I have the weirdest eyelids. Colors absolutely refuse to show up on my eyes! Its strange! I have to use crazy amounts of eyeshadow for it to show up! This eye shadow base has really helped me. Not only do the colors show on my eyes, they also last much longer!

What I like about NYX Eyeshadow Base

  • The skin tone color will suit all Indian skin tones. Its neither too dark, nor too light
  • It is quite affordable.
  • Obviously, it does its job well. It intensifies the eye shadow colors and makes them last long!
  • A little goes a long way.
  • I like the texture. It’s creamy and blends easily.


What I dislike about NYX Eyeshadow base

  • Packaging: My long nails seem to dislike anything that comes in a jar!
  • Availability: Nyx products are not available in Delhi. I think they are available in Mumbai and Bangalore but for the rest of us, the only option is to buy it online.

Will I repurchase it : Yes. But I might go in for a different color next time.

Rating : 3.5/5

  1. Nice review Ash :yes: The color has showed up pretty well with the base 🙂
    NYX seems to have all good products that are quite economical though their pricing differs enormously here and abroad. I just hope they open up many more counters here and introduce the same pricing. Indians will satrt flocking them for sure!

  2. i want to buy this desperately and .9 dollars is soooo reasonable…in my mumbai store is not availale…,…thanks for the review 😀

  3. I for one absolutely adore this product – I have it in Skin Tone as well and despite having so many other eye primers, this is my #1 go to product! The only downside, and you mentioned this too, is the nails not loving the pot;)
