I love a good eyeshadow palette as much as the next woman, but the truth is I rarely ever use the ones I own. Despite my best efforts, so much of my eyeshadow never seems to last throughout the day. That is, until I got my hands on Sigma Beauty’s new Eyeshadow Base Primers. These unassuming little sticks promise to not only hold the pigment in your eyeshadow in place longer, but they also amp up the color. Given how many palettes I have sitting on my vanity completely unused, I decided to put these primers to the test.
The good news: they didn’t disappoint! I’m not one for crazy eyeshadow colors, but I can honestly say my eyeshadow definitely looked more vivid and had more pop when I applied it over the Eyeshadow Base Primer. Even more impressive, though, was that the primer 100% definitely kept my eyeshadow in place for way longer than if I were to have applied the eyeshadow to my naked lid. I’m a chronic eye-rubber and despite that, I still had color on my eyes after a full 8 hour work day.
Here’s the other really amazing news about Sigma’s Eyeshadow Base Primers: you can wear them solo! And this is actually how I’ve been wearing them most often. Just a quick swipe or two on the upper lid gives the perfect flash of subtle sparkle that really and truly does last from when I leave home in the morning to when I’m talking off my makeup at night. Bubbly is my personal favorite shade because I’m a sucker for a metallic lid (makes my eyes look wider and brighter), but the other two colors are really pretty as well. Take a look:
