The time has come to show you my absolute favorite eyeshadow base. I've tried many but I always get back to this one.
It's the Hema Eyeshadow Base with, wait for it....Vitamin E and Silk. Silk? Yes silk. Sound great and is just as great.
I discovered it a couple of years ago when I started being in the Netherlands a whole lot, but back then I was just an avid eyeliner user, so just keeping that on was enough for me and was also the only criteria I could judge it on.
Well, I was lucky enough to always have a spare tube, but I misjudged my consumption last time and was left high and dry for a couple of months. During that time I started using more and more eyeshadow and noticed how during the day it would crease. Especially on my left eye. My right one just lets anything sit for however long. Can't really explain why one creases and the other doesn't.
In any case, this is when I noticed I needed my handy dandy base and did my best to get it.
And man am I happy I have it back!
Talk about long lasting eyeshadow! Now I can actually judge its lasting power properly since it makes anything stick and stick...and stick...and you get the idea. Also, because of its ingredients, it's perfect for the tender skin on your eyelids.
Not to mention the fact that it gives you a gorgeous glow. I don't know if you can see the shimmer too well, but it's there and it's great. Imagine applying your eyeshadow on that.
The applicator is very practical but I still like to pat it in with my fingertips. The only downside is that eventually, you have trouble taking the product out of the tube with the wand BUT worry not, for you can cut the tube in half and just scoop it out in a little container.
All in All
This is the perfect eyeshadow base to me! Great ingredients, great shine, great feel and most importantly, great hold!
