This is a gorgeous base shade for dark skin tones. It really makes all my eyeshadows appear more vibrant and they last all day without creasing. I love the new squeeze tube. A little goes a long way.
This works very well in keeping my shadow from creasing, but I do not like it because it makes the color of my shadows look different. For example, today I used shades from my Naked palette (the first one), and when I looked in the mirror a couple of hours later, my warm toned shadows had turned to a cool toned gray. I noticed it with other shadows I tried, too. Definitely a no-buy for me.
People who refer to UD primers as the Holy Grail are not kidding! I've tried brands all across the board from high end to low end and always would come back to UD. After coming across Eden though, I don't see myself ever attempting another brand's primer again! Eden has a flesh-tone color to it that really evens out your lids in addition to the priming factor. When I use this product, I feel that I have the perfect palette to create my eyeshadow looks.
Eden is long lasting and does not crease. I noticed some reviews said that this happened but I think ANY primer will crease over time if you don't let it dry or set in for a few min before applying your shadow OR if you over apply. You only need the slightest amount so don't worry about the cost. The tube will last you forevs!
I have not one single con for this primer. It's truly made my application smoother, vibrant and long lasting.
If you have light to medium skin... this is a MUST for your makeup collection ladies!!
This product just didn't work out for me. It did a good job evening out my eyelids but my eyeshadows still creased horribly after 4 hours. This would work well for drier eyelids
This is the first primer that I have used and I ordered it online from Sephora.
I have to admit, at first, I was disappointed by how small the package seemed.
BOY WAS I DUMB.
This stuff lasts FOREVER. You only need a very little bit each time.
One tube has lasted me a year now, and I have barely made a dent in it!
It is a little bit pricey, but totally worth it in my books.
I would like to try the other primers that Urban Decay offers after I run out of this one.
I finally got around to trying the tube-version instead of the sponge applicator one, and I have to say that when I got the hang of how much product I needed, I prefer the tube over the sponge applicator.
The color is perfect for my warm, yellow-y skintone, and the eyeshadow is stuck throughout the day.
I have to take one lippie off for the formula, though. The original one is much more velvet-y, whereas this is a teensy bit too dry for my dehydratet skin.
Alright primer with matte golden tint. It's a bit dry when I put it on but it helps eyeshadows last all day.
This is by far my favorite out of all the UDPPs! I love it because of the MATTE tint which helps to cover up any redness and veins that might be visible on my fair-skinned eyelids. The consistency is nice and blendable, though it tends to dry and not budge pretty quickly, blended or not. I find it is easier to completely blend out after I moisturize my eyelids a little bit. The primer combats any oil that the moisturizer might've created on my eyelids. Overall, smooth application and good coverage of veins and redness, provides a nice matte base which holds my eye shadows well. In my opinion it's worth the price!
I received this as a deluxe sample in a sampler pack from Sephora. I was hesitant to try it because I've never ever used an eyeshadow primer before - I'm not going to lie, I always thought they were a stupid waste of money and were completely pointless.
I couldn't believe the difference when I used the primer! I loved how it was super easy to apply and you don't need a lot of product. I really liked how it not only made my eye shadow last all day, it also enhanced the pigment.
I will admit, I am now a proud user! If you ever want to see the difference, put primer on one eyelid and apply eyeshadow to both eyes. You will see the difference!
This is not as good as the original at all. I think it has a shorten staying power and is more sticky. The tint of color in it causes it to accentuate the dried skin on my eyelids and around my eyes.
