Stop the presses! I have found my Holy Grail eyeshadow base/primer!
In the past, I have been loyal to Urban Decay Primer Potion. But with packaging issues and being harder to blend, I set out to find something equal, if not superior to my beloved UDPP. I had thought after the re-packaging of UDPP into a tube that it would eliminate the issues from the old packaging. Not so! After spending nearly $30 on the professional size UDPP, it dried out in less than 3 months! But I digress, we're here to talk about NARS.
Let's start with the packaging. I like the packaging. It's straight forward and I won't have to de-pot it nor worry about it drying out. It is packaged like a lipgloss with a tube and a doe foot applicator. The consistency is quite different to that of UDPP. NARS consistency is more like a mousse. Almost feeling like a silicone based product (not sure as I have thrown away the box with the ingredient list).
This stuff does not budge. At. All. It keeps my eyeshadow in place all day long. I love it! But best of all, it makes my shadows easy to blend. That was a huge problem with the UDPP for me. It just such a pain to blend my eyeshadow.
This stuff is not cheap. It retails for $24 but I purchased it during the Sephora Friends' and Family sale and it was 20% off. If you can splurge on this, I highly recommend it!
