Nicka K Eyeshadow Base - Pearl*
Today is officially the first day of Autumn, which has left me feeling extremely excited for cosy nights in, loads of blankets, Disney movies, hot chocolate, crunchy leaves, Halloween, my birthday, boots, jumpers, scarves, bobble hats, golden eyes and berry lips and nails.
So, as I start to bring out all my gold, glittery eyeshadows, I need a good eyeshadow primer to help keep them in place all day long. This brings me on to discuss the Nicka K Eyeshadow Base. I have the shade 'Pearl', which as you would imagine is a creamy, off white shade which gives the tiniest touch of iridescence. There is also two other shades, 'White' and 'Nude'.
For ages I used the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion until I used it all up a couple of months ago. I never bothered replacing it because it was too expensive for all I used it for on my tiny student budget. However, I've been using the Nicka K Eyeshadow Base for more than a month now and I would say it's a perfect dupe.
The primer glides onto my eyes with silk-like ease and causes no irritation whatsoever, which I've found with some other eyeshadow primers. However, most importantly it extends the wear of my eyeshadow and prevents it from creasing. Also, due to the neutral base, it brightens my eyes, clings to the pigmentation of the eyeshadow and gives the true shade the eyeshadow is supposed to be.
I apply it just like an other eyeshadow primer, by simply dabbing my ring finger into the pot and patting it gently all over my eyelid before applying my eyeshadow of choice.
I'd really recommend trying out the Nicka K Eyeshadow Base if you're looking for a new eyeshadow primer or as an alternative to some of the more expensive eyeshadow primers out there, because at just £4.95 on the Beauty Crowd website, you can't really go wrong. Plus, how could you resist the pretty rose gold lid and glass jar!?
What do you think of eyeshadow primers? Would you try the Nicka K Eyeshadow Base? Let me know in the comments!
