Rivaj Uk Eyeshadow Base - Review

Hello there! How are you all ? Having a lovely weekend ? I am here today with another beauty product Rivaj UK Eye shadow base. I have been hearing about eye shadow base and primers all over the internet ever since I started reading about makeup. I always wondered what it is with this base/primer thing that everyone is using and recommending it. Personally, I thought it was not something so essential so i kept on going without ever thinking of getting myself one. Recently, I got my eye on this primer, it was so cheap and i had heard really good things about it so I got it just to see if I was wrong . Well I admit, I was so so so wrong :D. Now lets have a look at this baby

The Product:

This product is from Pakistan's famous brand RIVAJ UK. Its was launched 2 or 3 years back and is now one of the finest and most affordable brands available in the market. I have tried quite alot of different products from this brand and almost all of them have always left me satisfied. This eyeshadow base is a new product from this brand & comes in a clear plastic bottle with a wand doe-foot applicator.The product is milky white and is sticky at first but then it becomes transparent when it dries off. You need to apply very small amount , so it tends to go a long way with you. 



My Experience:

I have never used or tested any other eye shadow base before so there is no comparison at the moment. For this product I found it working beyond my expectations !! For such a small price tag, it was hard to believe it would work wonders and for me it did ! The texture is smooth and sticky at first when you apply it, but dries off completely after a while ( Like 30 secs max) & becomes transparent. The your eyelids don't get sticky and eye shadow application becomes easy. It provides a smooth base to work up your eye colors. Blending is also super easy and smooth. All in all it is a great product specially if you are a beginner and want to try it staying in budget :)

Swatch:





You can clearly see the difference between the same eye shadow applied on my bare skin and on the eye shadow base. The base decreases the fall outs, intensifies the color and makes it last longer !!

Little Tips:

  • Don't apply too much product on your lids. Dot a little over and under the lid ans spread it with your fingers
  • After application, keep your eyes closed for about half a minute. If you open it instantly, your lid might stick with your crease (I don't like that :-/)
  • Wash with simple water to take it off. No makeup remover required.

I Like:

  • Odorless and colorless
  • Intensifies the eye shadow that I apply
  • Reduces the fall out under my eye
  • Keeps my eye shadow put all day long
  • Doesn't make eye shadow crease
  • Affordable
  • Easily available

I Don't Like

  • Takes time to dry off and makes my eye lid sticky 
  • Non-water resistant, instantly removes when gets in contact with water

My Rating

I give it a 4.5/5. I took off 0.5 just because it is not water resistant. Overall it is a great product. I am so in love with it and I am definitely buying it again as soon as this one ends or may be even before it ends :D. I got it for 200 PKR from a local cosmetic shop. You can find it easily on all cosmetic shops all over Pakistan or you can buy it from Eye Love Makeup on facebook, they deliver all over Pakistan :)

Have you every give it a try and compared its result with other eye shadow bases/primers ? Do let me know in the comments :) 

Love till next time xoxo
