I have naturally oily skin but I am really oily on my eyelids the most. This is one of the few primers that doesn’t crease from my oily lids lifting the product after a couple hours. It keeps my lids & eyeshadow looking like I just freshly applied it & NO creasing! It’s amazing

I bought this primer because I was going to a concert and planned to have glitter makeup and wanted to make sure it would stay in place. The primer was really tacky while applying and had a sticky feel once dry. Because it was tacky/sticky it was also difficult to apply it in a smooth manner. I wouldn't recommend this product and will be returning.

The only eyeshadow primer I will buy!

I originally purchased this primer to use with a new glitter shadow palette, but I ended up using it on a daily basis, no matter what kind of eyeshadow I was applying over it. I mostly wear shimmer shadows, but the product will work with mattes as well. The primer stays on and keeps eyeshadow on all day-even high end eyeshadow, until I remove my makeup at night. The only issue I have ever had is with the tube itself. The tip the primer comes out of always eventually falls off, but being a drugstore brand, I really can't complain about that. I just store the tube in a ziploc bag and it is just fine. I will never waste money on another eyeshadow primer.

I hadn't been using a stick eyeshadow primer for years and never thought anything of it until one day I decided to try this out. Mind blown. I threw my old primer out after trying this - this is like perfection in a little tube. The consistency is slightly similar to a fast drying glue so you have to work fast. Then once you've applied any eyeshadow color, you can guarantee it's staying the day. Awesome product. Works with shadows without glitter as well!

So my eye has a deep crease with oily eyelids and it is resulting in the top half of my eyeshadow always wearing off prematurely and I wanted to know if anyone could recommend any products to use to help combat this issue/ any eyeshadow blending techniques are appreciated

Hi! I love using glitter primers for my eyelids! I also have a bit of a hooded eye combined with oily eyelids and this NYX glitter primer is amazing !!! It makes my shadow more pigmented and it makes my makeup last all day. It’s also very affordable and all you need to use is a little dot so it is I’ll last forever #Beautyverse

Does anyone know some good methods to making an eyeshadow more pigmented? I find that when I use a brush to pick up certain colors, they’re very translucent. Thanks! ☺️

Gotta use that eye primer / concealer!!!! Depending on the primer/concealer definitely impacts the pigmentation. I know that the P. Louise @Eye Base is really good, I’m just using @Urban Decay because this was before P. Louise came out. BUT the Urban Decay @Eyeshadow Primer Potion has YET to fail me and you don’t need much! If you’re trying to improve pigmentation of glitters, Metallics, etc, you can either go in with the primer or concealer (that some people use to prime their eyes), or I just go in with NYX’s @Glitter Primer and it works amazing too because I’m a fan of cutting creases 😅 Also depending on the eyeshadow, like the @Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette , you have to pack on the color before you begin to blend. Also, sometimes wetting the brush (like spritzing it with setting spray, not drenching it) works, but I usually never do this even though I know a lot of people who do. Hope I helped!

How do you apply foundation/concealer to your nose without it creasing on the sides? I understand creasing throughout the day because I have an extremely oily nose, but I always find my makeup creasing on the sides of my nose as soon as 15 minutes after my makeup application! Please help and give me tips!!

Use this as a primer in the areas that crease! I use it around my nose and smile lines. Works really well and is cheap.

our theme for our football theme last Friday was “space jam”.i focused more on the space than the jam since my jersey didnt come in time. I used the JH Palette and messed with shades: Jaba, Diva and Pool Party ( i think i threw twerk on the lower lash line and blended it with another blue shadow from a different palette). I put a few dots of glitter glue on my cheek bones and poured some glitter on a plate and applied my glitter with an old brush which is now known as my glitter brush lol. #highschool #alien #area51 #spacejam #JHPalette #Glitter #Theme #fun #spiritnights #fnl #football #studentsection
