White Bright

Eye shadow primers come in all sorts of textures and colors. I have never tried a plain white one before, but have always heard great things about NYX eye shadow base in White.

This little pot is supposed to make shadows true to color and brighter. For $6, there is a lot of primer in this.

It looks a little intimidating on first inspection. No worries though, it is creamy to the touch and applies smoothly.

Here it is applied directly to my bare skin and rubbed in. It still keeps a strong white color, which is key to it's performance.

To test, I took the troublesome pink from Maybelline's Paradise Punch duo I reviewed a little while back and put it over the primer. Wow!

On the left is the pink shadow on bare skin. On the right is the same shadow over the white base. You can see it has so much more pop, shine, and opacity. This really does work!

Final Thoughts: Do you wear bright colored shadows on the daily? This would be a great investment.

Price: 9/10
Staying Power: 10/10
Packaging: 8/10
Color/Wearability: 10/10
Quality/Branding: 10/10

Total: 47/50 = A = Pandamonium!

Have you tried this base? Love it? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I've heard that this is kind of like their Milk pencil in potted form! But it sounds like the staying power is better, which is awesome. The difference in pigmentation is really something, thanks for the recommendation :)

    1. I have the pencil and I think it is better, the staying power is better and it lasts longer on the eye without creasing. No problem!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
