Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

This product has become my favourite primer. Don't get me wrong, Urban Decay's Primer Potions are great, especially Eden, as it neutralises the colour of the lid. However, this Nars primer keeps eyeliner in place all day and night and quite possibly, the next day!

'A polymer and mineral-powder blend establishes a firm grip on color ensuring hours and hours of gorgeous wear. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, the Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base dries on contact and keeps the delicate eyelid smooth and prepared for color application.'

• Prevents creasing, smudging and caking. 
• Prolongs winged eyeliner (ensure that the product is applied to the edge of the eye too).
• Easy application.
• Works with any type of eyeshadow product (cream, powder, shadow stick etc.).
• Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested (i.e, skin and eye tested). 
• It lasts a long time. I have used it daily since July and I am only now going to need to re-purchase at some point soon. A little goes a long way. 
• £19.50 for 0.28oz, which lasts 5-6 months of daily use. 
• Fragrance free.
• Holds up in hot, humid weather and the rain. 
• You can use half the product from the applicator on one eye lid and half on the other. This is why it lasts for so long.

• The doe foot applicator means that it often gets makeup on it and can get quite dirty.

• The packaging is prone (especially the lid) to attracting makeup, moisturiser, hand cream and anything else! Be prepared for it to look like you've had the product for years, after a week! 
• Once the product has been applied, you need to blend eye shadows quickly. Otherwise, you end up pulling at the lid because once the primer has dried, the colour is locked on! This isn't really a bad thing, considering that the product is doing what it says. It just means that you need to apply it as you are doing your eyeshadow and not when doing skin prep.
Overall, I think it's a very good product and I will continue to purchase it.
