Swatched: Too Faced First Base Eyeshadow Base

First Base is an eyeshadow base by Too Faced. It is a shimmery iridescent golden color and is an anti crease formula. This retails for $14.40 on the Too Faced website (Click Here!) but I found this at Nordstrom Rack for $5.97. The front of the box flips up to reveal a window to the product below and a message "Buy me dinner first."

The base is in a little compact, just like the blush. These have a magnetic closure which is handy to prevent a mess in your makeup bag. I like that they are flat, so you can stack them easily or slip them in a small space in your makeup drawer. 

I have used this under my eyeshadow several times now and I really like it. I was really unsure when I bought it, as I don't think I really found a good review of it online. After using it, I am surprised at all the negative reviews, it worked great for me! I used it before a 10 hour shift at a restaurant last week and my eyeshadow had little to no creasing by the end of the night! I always use Urban Decay's Primer Potion before an eyeshadow base, and I did use it underneath this base on that day. I think the combination of the two worked really well. I am very happy with this, and I am sure I will continue to use it often. In the swatches below, I just swiped it on my bare skin with my finger. 

This is available from Too Faced for $14.40 but is no longer on either Sephora or Ulta's websites. It was on Amazon, but they are selling it for more than on the Too Faced website. Again, I would recommend checking your local Nordstrom Rack to see if they got any of these!
