Holy Grail Alert!
When Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base was launched sometime a year ago, every gal was practically raving about it like it was the One Direction of eye primers while I was like "How better could it possibly be than UDPP let alone, Smashbox 24- Hour Photofinish Shadow Primer?" Fast forward to last July when NARS launched their first standalone boutique at Central Square, Bonifacio Global City; I got this as a sample and tried it the next day, and I immediately realized "Dammit, Martha. If NARS says it's PRO, you better friggin' believe it." This is one of the best eyeshadow primers in my opinion!
NARS PRO-PRIME SMUDGE PROOF EYESHADOW BASE IN DETAIL
This lightweight, PRO eye primer combats, streaking, fading, and creasing, and improves the color of eyeshadows with Polymer and Mineral- Powder. Charged with antioxidant Rice extract and special- deep sea extract to care for the skin on the eyes.
This primer is actually small and you'd think that "P1350 for this? No frikkin' way", but it's so good that once you try it, you won't mind the price.
Consistency is a very light cream: it's thinner than UDPP, definitely more spreadable than Smashbox's eyeshadow primer, and has a smoother surface than both products. It dries into a smooth, matte finish; I love how the pigments glide easily and effortlessly on this one, thus I love using it when I'm donning color gradation on my eyes. It improves color intensity too. However, I'm not sure if this is suitable for sensitive skin.

After 8 hours
Eyeshadow did not crease and streak; it faded, but for just a wee bit. It also prolonged this eyeliner that I'm wearing here that is notorious for fading into my tear ducts.
Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is beautiful: beautiful quality, beautiful performance. Wish it came in a bigger size though! Putting this product now in the HG section of my makeup kit! ;)
