A Day Without Eyeliner (NYX Eyeshadow Base Review)

The Drums - Let's Go Surfing

Today I was so sleepy.. because I got insomnia last night. I only slept for an hour, and my eyes couldnt close at all after that O_O. In the morning my body was not feeling well, and actually I was not in the mood to wear make up, BUT!! To respect the people whom we'll meet in the whole day (ANYBODY, include the strangers on the street) we have to look fresh, or at least good. So for people's sake, I still did the morning make up routine, although I was too lazy to apply eyeliner on my eyes XD.

To make my face more fresh, I simply chose green colors for my eyes, and a little touch of peach on cheeks. Here is my face of the day...
I often feel like a fish if Im not wearing eyeliner. That's what I felt today.
What do you think? Do I look like a fish? <(O.O)--< And OOOOH!! There's a pimple on my cheek!!! U_U
 FOTD
Face: Sunscreen, Revlon Photo Ready concealer # 004, Skin Food buckwheat loose powder (transparent).
Cheeks: NYX Powder Blush - Peach
Eyes: Viva brow liner (brown), NYX eyeshadow base (White), NYX S101 make up kit (Green & Pearl  eyeshadows),
Revlon Custom Eyes Waterproof Mascara (Blackest black), Stilla Kajal eyeliner (Topaz)
Lips: L'occitane lip balm, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (London)

The detail, left: in the morning before I went to work, right: in the evening just got back from work.
Surprisingly, the eyeshadows last all day long. If you see it's fade in the inner corner part, it's because I rub that part a lot today with my finger, *yaaaaawn.. Yes ladies, we have to say thanks a lot to the inventor of EYESHADOW BASE! Especially what I wore today: NYX Eyeshadow Base (White)! *soundslikepromotionhoho.. So here's my opinion about it..

"NYX's Eyeshadow bases maximize the intensity, longevity and unashamed brilliance of your eye shadow statements with our eye shadow primer pots. Each of the three NYX Eye Shadow Bases-for vibrant, pearl or neutral tones-creates a smooth canvas for color, increases its durability and prevents fallout."

Left to right: White Pearl, White, Skin Tone (which I use the most)
  
What I Love
- THE STAYING POWER HAS BEEN PROVEN!! It lasts all thay long. Excellent!
- Each shades has different effect, we can choose it based on our needs. White Pearl - makes pearly and shiny effect. White - makes eyeshadow pops, more vibrant and strong, especially for the colorful eyeshadow: it definitely helps the colors show up true to shade. Skin Tone - is my favorite! I use it for everyday make up.
- The packaging is simple: little glass jar with plastic top.
- Texture: smooth and creamy. Apply it with our finger, tap it on lids.
- Prevent oily lids!
- Easily blend with eyeshadows.
- Affordable.
- The colors are somewhat lighter than my skintone, and it makes my eyes brighter. 

Cons
- It will be nice if they put 3 of them in a palette. ^^
- More shades would be better (especially for Skin Tone).

Here are the colors that I wore today, from NYX S101 make up kit:
The colors without the bases (they are pigmented already ^^) with & without flash.
 
NYX eyeshadow bases swatches with & without flash. Left to right: White Pearl, White, Skin Tone.
Eyeshadows color after using the bases with & without flash.
It didnt fade at all when I wash it with water. It even still stick on my skin after I wipe it with a tissue! WOW!
 
Overall, I love these products a lot! They are really good, especially for everyday make up.

See Ya!

I have NYX shadow base in skin tone. It creases after 5-6 hours. Do you have a technique to make it long wear? I have combo skin.
