NYX Proof It Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer Review

March 10, 2017

Hi all..

We all like putting eye shadows and when it doesn’t stay for long or fades we feel disappointed. Especially in summers it’s very difficult to manage the eye shadow to stay on our eyes for long.

Recently I purchased this eye shadow primer from NYX..  I was looking to buy primer especially for eye shadow and when I saw this that it is waterproof and fro NYX I didn’t think twice I just bought it. Let’s see how the product in details.

Experience using NYX Proof It Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer

It comes in cardboard packaging with all Ingredients and the directions to use this primer. It comes in a white small tube with black top with the doe-foot applicator to apply the product on the eye.

The colour is very light peachy. It contains no shimmer or sparkle. It has no scent.

It feels thick going on and once you smooth it over your eyelids with your finger you can feel the weight of it when you blink. It feels a little tacky at first but it dries in about 5 minutes and then you don’t feel like it’s there at all. It smoothes out and the heavy feeling of something on your eyelids goes away.

I applied powder eye shadow over this, I checked on it several times throughout the day and my shadow never smudged or faded.

I applied in the afternoon and whole day it was fine and my eye shadow did fade or got smudged. It stayed for good 5 hours. I have pretty oily skin so obviously my eye lids tend to get oily and greasy after few hours. Since its summers now my eye lids tends to get greasy and oily very soon.
I never got the chance to test it underwater, but as a primer this is a good primer especially in summer time and I would definitely recommend it.

It’s super easy to use, just use the wand to apply to clean dry eyelids, then smooth out with your finger and wait a few minutes for it to set. Then apply any of your favourite eye shadow over it and you are good to go.

    Thanks for the article, perhaps I should give this a try, my makeup doesn’t stay, malaysia is hot and humid.

    I totally need this primer in my life. I have such bad luck with my eyeshadows creasing by the end of the day. I think I’m going to get myself this one. Thanks for the fab info 🙂

    NYX has pretty decent products and I do agree that this eyeshadow primer is quite good. Certainly keeps the shadows in place and last longer during wear too 🙂

    Thanks for the review. I’m also considering to get an eye shadow primer as it fades less than 3 hours on my eyelids. One of the reason I skip and prefer mascara only for eye makeup.

    If you are trying to save money, you can use your lids with your concealer. That does the trick everytime. For me. Anyways. Great review! Try Urban Decay’s primer potion sometimes

    I think this primer will works best for people who loves clubbing – with all that sweat during clubbing, this primer will be a life saver.
