Review | Nars Pro Prime

Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base - £19 | John Lewis

Every product I have tried from Nars has been a success, so with that in mind I steered away from the highly popular Urban Decay Potion Primer and opted for the Nars Pro Prime Eye-shadow base instead. The packaging is more suited to my taste as well as there being no bad words in sight about it after reading numerous reviews... admit it, we all do it. 

The doe-foot application makes it quick and easy for those in a rush mornings, as well as drying on the lid in no time. The primer comes in a creamy consistency which is easy to control and applies precisely to avoid drowning your eyes. Once it has dried on the skin it leaves a light white tint (which I quite like), making you look more awake with a bright eye, and the benefit of seeing where it has been applied. Eye-shadow quickly covers the tint. 

Eyeshadow does not budge, literally smudge proof. It allows the colour from the shadow to pack on the lid and intensify (don't be afraid- you can still blend!). I don't have very oily eyelids but creasing still likes to proceed after a few hours- swipe a bit of this on before and any sight of creasing is vanished. If it wasn't so bad for the skin then you could probably get away with sleeping with it on and not having to re-apply the next day- #lazy. 

I've never been much of a primer person but this is clear staple, I may even try a face primer so if you have any recommendations for which one to try then let me know. Have you tried Nars Pro Prime Eye-shadow base? Don't forget you can follow me on Bloglovin' if you enjoy my posts- Thank you. 


  1. this sounds pretty amazing! I'm using now the Artdeco Eyeshadow base - it's amazing and definitely much cheaper! xx

    1. Oh I shall look out to try that one! Thanks for the recommendation :)

  2. This sounds fab! I typically use Painterly Paint Pot by MAC, but I'd be willing to give this one a shot! UDPP dries out my eye lids so bad that I have avoided those kinds of primers all together. Maybe the NARS one will work out better for me :)
