Really pleased with this eyeshadow base. I've tried many others & this is the only one that has worked for me and also doesn't irritate my eyes. Excellent product.

As an Asian I have those infamous hooded eyelids which causes my eyeshadow to transfer no matter what I did... Not to mention, I have very oily eyelids, so anything was bound to budge. Whether I used UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) or TFSI (Too Faced Shadow Insurance); nothing stayed put 'till I used Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow base. This is the only thing that will make sure for my eyeshadow to stay in place. Absolutely love this and will never use anything else :)

I have hooded oily eyelids, which means most if not all eyeshadows crease/smudge and looks terrible on my after about 20 minutes of wear-time. This is the best eye-lid primer I've ever used! Will never be without it, keeps my eyeshadow on my lids for hours, love it.

I have very greasy skin and eyeliner used to just wear off. Using this as a base means the eyeliner stays put all day.

I have tried many eye shadow primers and this is fabulous. My eye shadow does not budge all day long. I never want to be without this product.

Having oily skin and lids, it's hard to find products that actually stop your make up sliding and turning your face into a horrible mess.... I've tried urban decay, however I must say was a lot more effective. I would recommend for those with oily lids like myself

You don't think you need an eye primer until you've used this. It's excellent to bring up the color of your eyeshadow. More importantly for me, it makes my eyeliner stay neat all day - which is a scientific breakthrough knowing how oily my eyelids get. You need this in your life, just buy it and thank us later.

Amazing effects with only a little application. The price might seem off-putting at first, but in reality it will last you months. I have oily combination skin, so my eyelids spent most of the day trying to remove any eye make-up I put on until I came across this product on a beauty blog. It really does give complete protection until removed; I wear a full eye (with liner) every day, so I've put it through it paces. Definitely worth the investment!

Amazing product, eyeshadow stays put all day 15+ hours. Stops creasing and fading of eyeshadow. Would definitely buy again.

This is the best shadow primer I have ever ever used. Better than too faced, urban decay, and countless others. It's just unbelievable! If you're wondering whether you should invest, yes I know it's a lot of money but I have never read one bad review about it, and it is so worthy. Will always repurchase.

I have always suffered with extremely oily eyelids and, being a lover of liquid eyeliner, would always have it smeared across my upper eyelids by midday. No matter what I did my eyeliner and shadow would shift and look messy after a few hours. Due to the price tag I was slightly reluctant to invest in this product, however I am so glad I did. I have only been using it 2 days and it has made applying eyeliner a pleasure. 10, 11, 12 hours later and my eyeliner is still perfect, with no visible oil on my eyelids, and shadow stays put as well. I hope it continues to be as good, and I would 100% reccommend to anyone. I will definitely repurchase. A total must - have for your makeup bag!

My eyelids are both slightly hooded and very oily. I have tried two - faced eyeshadow base and urban decay ' s. In both cases the bases just seemed to add to the creasing. I then tried some cheaper bases I had seen recommended with similar disappointing results. After wasting so much money on useless products I was reluctant to try something else but I have some very pretty eye shadows that are going to waste and I saw Lipsticklady518 on YouTube recommend this Nars primer. She seemed to have similar issues as I did and had tried and failed with the same products. She loves this primer so I thought I would give it a go. It is wonderful! It is easy to apply on the lids but when it is on it sinks in beautifully and doesn't feel drying. Eyeshadow sticks to this base and seriously doesn't budge. This is the first time I have felt confident enough to wear darker eyeshadow. Fantastic!

Great Eyeshadow Base. Eyeshadow lasts the whole day.

I read many good reviews about this before purchasing this product. I used urban decay's primer potion before but it creased towards the end of the day. I have oily lids and this does not crease at all and eyeshadow stays in place. Will definitely buy this again.

Eye makeup does not budge, does what it says on the tin.

I used to use the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which worked really well until I repurchased recently and it completely failed on my oily eyelids. I figured they must have changed the formula.
After reading reviews, I bought this and it works really well up for about 8 hours with all eyeshadows that I've tried. I find I use a little more than I'm used to, but it does work.
My only complaint would be the doefoot applicator - it would be much handier to have in a tube so you can judge exactly how much is going on and how much product is left in the tube (and I think you'd end up leaving loads behind in the tube!).
