Review : Radiant Professional Eyeshadow Base

This is one of my favorite eyeshadow bases! A few months ago I was at Hondos Center to pick up a new Artdeco Eyeshadow Base, because my old one was too old and had dried up, but they were out of stock, so I asked the sales assistant which one I should choose and she showed me the Radiant Professional Eyeshadow Base! Since I've used and liked a couple of their products in the past, I thought I'd give it try! I'm so glad I did!! ;)


We'll start with the packaging as always! This primer comes in a clear plastic jar with black details! If you haven't read my Makeup 101 : Eyeshadow Primer Basics, this type of packaging isn't the most sanitary packaging ever, as you have to dip your finger into the jar! You could use a brush to scoop out some product, but that's an extra step I'm not willing to take, so I always make sure that my hands are clean! Anyway, here's what it looks like:

The actual product is quite thick, but not as thick as Artdeco Eyeshadow Base, creamy and it spreads really easily! I like its consistency better than Artdeco Eyeshadow Base, because it's creamier! Don't be fooled though, just because it's creamy it doesn't mean that it's heavy too! No,no,no! It dries quite fast to a nice, matte finish, so you have to work it quickly on your eyelids, otherwise it might look patchy, and it makes your eyelids smooth! It looks white in the jar and when you pick some up, but once you blend it in it looks transparent! :)



This eyeshadow base works really well ! I have EXTREMELY oily and quite hooded eyelids and with this my eye makeup lasts 7-8 hours without smudging, smearing or fading, which is amazing! Just make sure to apply a very thin layer of the eyeshadow base and to blend it really well, if you use too much your eye makeup will crease worse than it would without the eyeshadow base! This goes for all eyeshadow bases/primers! It does have a scent, but once you've put it on you can't smell it anymore! It doesn't irritate my eyes and I've used it a lot as you can see!


This eyeshadow base retails for around 7.60EUR here in Greece (Radiant Professional is a Greek brand) and you get 5ml of product, which is a very generous amount, considering that you need only very little product each time! So, this jar will last you a long time! Give it a shot, you'll enjoy it! My future sister-in-law got it too and she likes it a lot! ;)
