Product Review: Scandalous Cosmetic Eyeshadow Base


So I’m sure many of you have heard of makeupartistamatuer a.k.a Priscilla from YouTube. She has her own line called Scandalous Cosmetics. They had just opened their website where you can purchase their products. Also there are some store locations that they have. The most popular product right now is there Eyeshadow Base so here’s a review on it.

Product: 2 out of 5
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Quality: 2.5 out of 5
Overall: 2.5 out of 5
Price: $13.00
Size: 5g
Available: Scandalous Website


So after Priscilla’s review on the Eyeshadow Base vs. UDPP and Mac Shadestick it was obvious that it does win with enhancing the color. All of the bases that she had used were all neutral shades looking very similar to each other. So I immediately picked it up on their eBay site.

Pros: It does enhance the pigmentation of the eyeshadows…it has to. The eyeshadow base is very very creamy. The packaging although is a bit generic (it just has a sticker with their name on it. No design whatsoever) actually helps the product from drying out because of a twist cap that it has.

Cons: It creased on me like crazy (nothing new) within an hour or two. I also heard that it also creased on alot of other women to who has tried this. I even tried it again with TFSI and a small amount of Scandalous eyeshadow base applied with a Mac 252 brush and it still creased but this time within 3-4 hours. The product is very creamy liked I mentioned, but almost to the point of it being greasy that’s why I mentioned in the pro area why it enhances the pigmentation..it's sticky!

Overall: It does enhance the pigmentation of the eyeshadow but good amount of it is needed. I think that a small amount is needed in order to avoid creasing but it will not be enough to really enhance the pigmentation of the eyeshadow. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone unless they have no creasing problems at all, like ABSOLUTELY no creasing problems.

^Yuck, after 4 hours of wear? this is just Scandalous Eyeshadow Base alone.
