Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

I am quickly discovering Nars’ products are pretty darn awesome!
Practically everything I try from them is a hit and I quickly fall in love.

I recently received a sample of their eyeshadow primer and couldn’t wait to put it to the test!







What it is:
A lightweight primer that creates a seamless canvas that keeps cream and powder eye color looking brilliant, fresh, and just-applied all day.

What it does:
This smudge-proof eye shadow base uses a unique polymer and mineral powder blend to get a firm grip on color for long-lasting, gorgeous wear. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, it dries on contact and keeps the delicate eye lid smooth and ready for eye shadow application.

What else you need to know:
This fragrance-free product is ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested.

Research Results:
After 2 week test:
– 97% felt that it maximized your eye shadow color
– 93% felt that it extended the wear of your eye shadow
– 90% felt that it prevented creasing and smudging

I’m completely sold just from the description alone!

 A primer that is lightweight and keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh all day?  Yes please!!


 I also appreciate that Nars made this fragrance free which is great for those of us with a sensitivity to fragrances.


Now…does this product live up to the claims?




I found that this felt completely comfortable on my eye lids and didn’t feel greasy or oily.  My shadow went on flawlessly on top of the primer and stayed put all day.




I didn’t experience any creasing or smudging when I used this.


 This is colorless, so for those who like a pigment to cover up imperfections, this wouldn’t be for you.


The product is slightly tacky and could make already difficult shadows a little tough to blend out.  But, I really didn’t have much trouble with blending.


Final Verdict:


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this primer!

It is absolutely the best eyeshadow primer that I’ve ever tried….hands down!


I will definitely be purchasing a full size primer.


Wishing you all a beautiful and wonderful day!


xoxo Lizzie♥
