My Views on Essence I Love Stage Eye Shadow Base

Packaging

Essence I love stage eyeshadow base comes in a sleek tube with a doe tip applicator which is quite convenient and easy to use.
Simple fuzz free packaging.



Texture and shade

Essence I love stage eyeshadow base comes in only one shade which is a big downside I would say. 2-3 shades would have been good, atleast in India.
The product is creamy and lucid, spreads easily and gets absorbed quickly - isn't thick or gooey. A big thumbs up to it for not leaving a ghosty white cast around my eyes!


Usage and Longevity

It is more like a multi-purpose product - cna be used as both an eyeshadow base or as a concealer.
It works wonderfully as a concealer for me. I don't have strong under eye circles but I get them occasionally when I lose sleep or under-sleep and this helps to conceal away those tired eyes perfectly ;)
As an eyeshadow base it does its job and keeps the shadow from creasing but not for long, my shadow starts creasing after 4-5 hours :( I have pretty oily lids so guess it isn't caterered for oily skin beauties. Dry skin girls might fight it more useful as a shadow base.
Overall it works good to me as a concealer rather than as a shadow base!
