I am always searching for the best eye shadow primer. I have oily lids and teary eyes. I also like my eye shadows to stand out and be true to colour. When Elaine mentioned that she really liked the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base I jumped at the opportunity to get a tube for myself to try.
This costs USD $24, I paid about SGD$36 for it which I thought was a really good deal.
It comes with a doe foot applicator which I use to apply on my lids. Instead of using the brush to blend the primer onto my lids, I prefer to use my fingers instead. The packaging is reminiscent of the Urban Decay Primer Potion. There is no way I'll be able to get to the remaining product stuck in the bottom of the tube. I don't think I can saw the tube either to get at the left over.
It is a creamy white which blends very easily into a transparent base.

After two hours later. After much rubbing against my t-shirt.
I have worn it almost everyday to test this out. My eye look stays put throughout the day, although it doesn't look like it was freshly applied after 10 hours it still looks very good. I did not experience any smudging at all. That makes it a winner for me.
