Review: Artdeco Eyeshadow base

Hello lovelies, I hope you are having an amazing day. Here in Latvia it is cold about -13C at the moment. We have a lot of snow, too much snow in my opinion. I will try and take some photos this weekend.
Anyway, a while ago I told you about my Makeup counter experience and ever since then I have been slowly getting the products the lovely lady used on me. Here is one of those products. It is an eyeshadow base from Artdeco.
So firstly I will tell you a little bit about the company. Artdeco is a cosmetics brand which started out in Germany over 25 years ago and has come a long way since then. It is now sold in so many different places. They have products for the face, eyes, nails, lips and many other.

What Artdeco say:
The Eyeshadow base with a soft, creamy consistency prevents the deposition of eyeshadow in the eyelid crease and makes the powder eyeshadows highly long-lasting, intense and brilliant. The eyeshadow is being applied easier, distributed better and lasts longer. This way, little particles cannot become loose, making it ideal for contact lens wearers.

The base calms reddened eyelids with Bisabolol and neutralizes the color of the eyelid. Vitamin E nourishes and protects the sensitive skin of the eyes.
Suitable for all kind of eyeshadows. Free from animal ingredients.

What I like
I have used this product only a few times as I normally just wear gel liner and mascara on my eyes to work. But what they say about it making your eyeshadow look so much is better is definitely true. I still remember my golden green eyeshadow look the lovely lady at the makeup counter did for me. It was amazing!

I used this eyeshadow and did a gold and brown smokey eyes look a while back and went to work. It lasted all day and I didn't have those ugly lines on my crease. That made me extremely happy as I could go home looking as fab as I came {of course with a little touch up on my foundation}.

So even if I haven't used it every day, I can still say that this is an amazing product. At first I was skeptical to purchase because I thought I didn't need as it cost approx €8.5, but when I tried it at home, I knew that was money well spent. 
Before I used to dislike putting on eyeshadow as I know how it will look after a couple of hours, but now I am happy to if I have the extra time in the morning.

What I don't like
I cannot say there is something I do not like about this base. Yes it may seem a bit pricey, but it will last for a very long time. So if you actually divide the price by the number of months you use it for, you will get a price per month lower than €1.

Repeat purchase Yes/No?
Yes! I will definitely be buying this when I run out. I like to do eyeshadow looks when I have some time so this is an absolute must!

Have you tried this product, what do you think? Do you know a similar product?
