We do recommend a primer but NOT a creamy primer such as the NXY pencil. If you are using a creamy primer we recommend you pat the product on and lightly sweep to blend. Product may darken over a creamy base.
Our swatch is over the NYX base(jumbo pencil) as you can see some parts are dark and others are light, this is due to a very creamy base.
Ingredients: Iron Oxide,Titanium Dioxide, Mica, & Aloha Nani's base
