Review: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow primer

So, my Urban Decay Primer Potion has been depotted for months, and is finally starting to dry out and lose its magic.  Sounds like an excuse to test a few new primers, right?

NARS Smudgeproof primer is pretty highly recommended, but I didn’t care for it.

There’s nothing WRONG with it–it applies transparent, wears just as well as my UDPP, and I got similar results in the end.  It just felt too sticky, blending over top.  I felt like ALL of my shadows had that nasty streaky look that badly blended mattes get, until layering several layers. The increased layering didn’t even make the colors more vibrant.
