Review: Artdeco Eyeshadow Base +DIY Eyeshadow Primer
The Eyeshadow Base with a soft, creamy consistency prevents the deposition of eyeshadow in the eyelid crease and makes the powder eyeshadows highly long-lasting, intense and brilliant. The eyeshadow is being applied easier, distributed better and lasts longer. This way, little particles cannot become loose, making it ideal for contact lens wearers.The base calms reddened eyelids with bisabolol and neutralizes the color of the eyelid. Vitamin E nourishes and protects the sensitive skin of the eyes. Suitable for all kind of eyeshadows. Free from animal ingredients.
This is my first ever eyeshadow primer. This costs around 400-500 Php. The jar is pot itself is really small (just 5ml) and seems as if it would not last me for a month but a little goes a very long way. The color is shimmery muted beige when applied. This has a strong scent (reminds me of insect repellant.. but i love the scent! haha ) Perhaps it is half the price of the infamous Urban Decay Primer, Artdeco eyeshadow base is a very good alternative. If you want your eyeshadow to last on you the whole day, this product is to go for. It makes my eyeshadow look more vibrant and a bit more shimmery (but nothing disco ball or anything just the right amount of shimmers). The downside of this e/s base is that it dries quickly which makes it very hard to blend. I have to redo the routine over again (which is quite frustrating). Overall, this product is actually good. However, I will not repurchase this again anytime soon because I want to try other primers.
Tips in using this product: Just apply the right amount. Never apply too much because it would cake easily.Spread thinly and quickly all over lid to get best results.
^using my home made primer
^it seems as if that on the picture there is no difference with the home made primer and the artdeco base. In actual, the artdeco base is a bit more shimmery.
The Rub Test
I did a rub test on the eyeshadows and the winner is still artdeco. It did not even smudge even a tinge! amazing. The home made e/s primer faded.
