The packaging of Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base is quite sleek. It comes in a travel-friendly tube with a doe-foot applicator. It makes the eyeshadow application an easy task.   


The texture is very creamy. After blending, it turns into a matte finish.   


This is my first eyeshadow primer so I might not be able to compare it with other eyeshadow primers available in the market but I’m gonna list down the pros and cons from my experience 🙂   First of all, it comes only in one variant, i.e. in the shade “Nude”, which may be a problem for the dark-skinned beauties.

But for the price it is offered, it is quite a good eyeshadow base. It spreads very easily and turns into a matte finish.

It has a slight orangy-peachy hue to it which helps in concealing the veins in the eyelid as well as any pigmentation. But soon after blending, it must be set with a nude eyeshadow, or it might crease.  

It makes the colors of the eyeshadow pop, but not THAT much. A significant difference can be seen in the matte eyeshadows. It makes the matte eyeshadows pop.

Below are the swatches:

The staying power is quite good. It stays for about 5-6 hours on my lids. My eyeshadow started fading after that. But it can wear off easily. It’s NOT WATERPROOF!  

Other Usage: You can also use it as a concealer.


  • Good value (only Rs.299)
  • Blends into a matte finish.
  • Stays up to 5-6 hours.
  • Sleek packaging
  • Helps in correcting pigmentation/ veins
  • Easy to apply


  • Available only in one shade.
  • Creases, if not set with powder/ eyeshadow
