Review Eyeshadow Base

Haiii Everyone...
Like you always know, nowadays, people has already notice about the beauty products. You can find a girl with a fantastic, bold, solid, vibrant, long lasting, non-creasing eye makeup. I'm sure, all of you already do this trick. But most of people out there still don't know how to create those eye makeup to be like that.
Eyeshadow Base!
That's the answer. Now, i rarely found people who didn't apply this eyeshadow base before makeup. You name it, from the daily makeup basic until the Professional one surely use this thing. Why? Because like i said above, eyeshadow base gave a awesome result for the eye makeup.
So, it interesting me to try some of eyeshadow base. From the cheaper to expensive one. So, here's my test...


Left-Right: MAC Paint Pot "Soft Ochre", Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX HD Eyeshadow Base, Laura Mercier Eye Base "Wheat", Etude Proof10 Eye Base, ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Base, NYX Eyeshadow Base "Skintone"


I was testing it with my NYX Single e/s in Azur Sky....


Here is the results....

Okay, my final opinion...
Basically every e/s base give a best result for any eye makeup. It gives more radiant color, bright, depth, solid, vivid and more....
But every e/s base also has their plus & minus thing. From this test of my own e/s base, i would like to say that:

- MAC Paint Pot "Soft Ochre"
Has a thick and creamy texture. Need an extra trick to blend it. Gives a dry result on your lids. Makes the e/s looks stay on your lids without make it more vibrant. The staying power is OK. At least, OK for daily use. Has a jar packaging so it's not too hygienic. 

- UDPP
Liquid and watery texture. It can makes the color more bright and bold. Easy to blend. Staying power is good. It gives a wet feel at first, then become a semi-matte on your lids. But it's a bit pricey

- NYX HD Eyeshadow Base
Creamy texture. Easy to blend. And IMHO this is better than UDPP does. The staying power is more longer than UDPP and MAC Paint Pot does. And when i wash my hand, the color still stay on the place without any color payoff

- Laura Mercier Eye Base "Wheat"
I'm not a big fan of this stuff. So creamy and a bit thick texture. It also easy to blend. But, it is a bit difficult to lift the e/s's color. You must swipe it 2-4times on your lids. The staying power is not too good, So-So.

- Etude Proof10 Eye Base
I like this stuff even that this isn't my HG. Watery & thin texture. Easy to blend. Makes the color more solid. But, you need an e/s which basically has pigmented enough. If it's not, you must swipe it until 2-3 times. The staying power is Good. Just good not special...

- ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Base
This is the cheapest one. But works really great on me. Creamy and mousse-y texture. Easy to blend. And this is success to lift the color of e/s. Very good job! The staying power is awesome. And not easily fade the color. Recommended...

- NYX Eyeshadow Base "Skintone"
Very creamy & thick texture. It's hard to lift the color at first, then for the 2 swipe the color straight to show. The staying power is awesome. And compare with another stuffs, this is more able to make the color look vivid, deeper, bold and pigmented. As you can see, its staying power is Powerful! Even i already rub with soap and tissue hardly, the color still stay on its place perfectly. There's not any color payoff. But also has a jar packaging so it's not too hygienic. But overall, Great job...

So, if i could pick my best Eyeshadow Base, i would pick 3. hehehhee....
The winner is:
1. NYX Eyeshadow Base "Skintone" (In a Jar)
2. NYX HD Eye Base
3. ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Base

And the poor one is Laura mercier Eye Base "Wheat"

The Eyeshadow Base that i wanna try:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Aubeau Eye Base (This is the local Indonesia brand and very cheap. It's approximately IDR 25.000 or something)
- Make Up For Ever HD Eyeshadow Base

Pretties, What do you think and What's your favorite?

  6. Thanks for the review Catra. I was going to try the Mac base in soft ochre or the Laura Mercier in wheat to use as a base. Seems like Mac seemed a little thick without much staying power and L Mercier have to use a bit more. Your review is great and I appreciate your honesty. I am sticking with one I have liked which is Urban decay in original. I also tried Clinique cream shadow in sparkling nude. Thanks again!

  10. Both NYX-es are my favorite. I have the base in 2 jars : pearl & skin tone. Pearl menurutku lebih cocok dipake buat warna-warna eyeshadow yang dekat sama warna kulit kita, biar lebih kelihatan jreng. Skin tone menurutku lebih aman dipake buat warna-warna mentereng, biar nggak terlalu cetar. I personally didn't enjoy wearing UDPP, rasanya kok berat gimana gitu di eyelid :(

  11. Duh kak, sebenernya aku lebih rekomendasiin gak usah nyoba aubeau deh :D lumayan sih, tapi staynya cuma 2-3 jam aja, abis itu kalo kucek mata dikit udah smudge gitu :D tapi gak apa sih kalo mau coba..
