NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

I am truly in love with this primer. NARS claims that this "Extends the wear of eyeshadow, eyeliner, and eyebrow pencil. Maximizes color intensity".  My oily lids could not agree more.

I literally wore this to the beach in 95 degrees, humid weather, went to a friends house after, and went to eat.  By the time I got home, my shadow looked as good as it did when I first left.  After using this primer for a year I never put it to the test quite like I did that day and I just knew I will never buy a different primer ever again. (I've tried Urban Decay Primer Potion and I had creases after a few hours)

This primer applies white, but once you blend it out it turns clear

To show the difference between having nothing and having NARS Smudge Proof underneath a shadow, I used the eyeshadow Humid from MAC.

Left | No Primer     Right | With Primer

As you can see without the primer, it seems more dull and is not as intense as it is with the primer underneath.


  1. oh I might have to give this primer a go, would you say this is better than urban decay primer potion?


    1. I personally think it is better because my shadows still crease when I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion. But my sister uses the primer potion and she swears by it. (then again shes never tried the NARS one lol)

  2. Interesting post! Really useful!

    I'll be following :)
