Few days ago I run out of my Art Deco eyeshadow base. I had it for about year and a half which is pretty good because I used it all the time, few times a week for sure. I absolutely love Art Deco eyeshadow base and it is a product I will definitely repurchase but I thought it would be a good idea to try Essence eyeshadow base I Love Stage and compare it to Art Deco.
First let's talk about Art Deco a little bit. Art Deco eyeshadow base comes it little black pot that contains 5 ml of product, you only need a thin layer so the pot can last you a very long time. With Art Deco base eyeshadow can last all day long on your lids and whenever I apply it I don't have to worry about my eye make up. A lot of girls stand out one main flaw of this product and that is that if you don't use it for a while it dries out. That happens pretty quickly and it happened few times to me too but all you have to do is remove top layer and the rest is good as new. Every time I use it I make sure that it is closed properly and I keep it in the box that came with it which also helps a lot.
For past two weeks I used Essence I Love Stage and my conclusion is that it is a good product but in the end I prefer Art Deco. I Love Stage will keep your eyeshadow on your lids for decent amount of time but you can't count on it for all daylong. Beside that it is easy to apply and just like Art Deco it prevents creasing. Essence I Love Stage contains 4 ml of product, little bit less then Art Deco but I think that Essence won't last very long.
On picture number 2 you can see the texture of both products, Art Deco is creamy while Essence is liquid. On next picture you can see how both of them look with eyeshadow, you can see that eyeshadow really sets on the skin and you can see the difference with and without base. You can also notice that Essence left little bit of color but on my lids that is negligible.
Overall I would choose Art Deco between the two products. Essence base is not bad but Art Deco is better. It keeps my eyeshadow all day long and even though the price is double it lasts for a very long time so it really worth the money.
What is your favorite eyeshadow base? Did you tired Art Deco or Essence eyeshadow base?
