I got a sample of this with an Urban Decay purchase. It's a beautiful color, but difficult to apply, which you have to be careful about on dark skin, since it's a light beige color. You must be careful to spread it only on the lid, and not any further, and do it quickly, since it dries quickly. But it is a quality product, with a very, very long-lasting color payoff.
I've been an avid user of the original Urban Decay eyelid primer for years. When this came out I thought I'd give it a shot since I have yellow undertones. Big mistake. This almost looks like i applied concealer on myeyelids. It does NOT hold your eyeshadow/eyeliner in place like the original formula. A few hours into a regular office workday, my makeup has creased on my eyelids and my natural oils have started to dissolve it off.
I'm literally waiting for this tube to finish so that I can repurchase the original formula.
When I purchased my Naked 2 Palette from Sephora, it can with a little tube of this primer and I'm so thankful for that other wise I don't think I would of found this little goody! This is beautiful if you have yellow undertones like myself. It reminds me of a matte concealer, preps my eyes so perfectly. No creases, no smudging, just beautiful long lasting eyeshadows. Can't wait to pick up my full tube
I'm not a fan of eden it is just too yellow for my taste but it does work just as well as the original eyeshadow primer potion which is my favorite. Eyeshadow sticks to this like glue and won't move for hours.
I got this primer free with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette along with samples of their original primer, an anti ageing one and the sin primer potion (a really dark primer). I adore this product! I have really bad trouble with eyeshadows and getting them to last and stay on my lids and in comparison to the original primer eden was a thicker more sticky consistency and it made my eyeshadow stick to my lids like glue! Also the fact that its slightly yellow in colour meant that it covered up any purpleness around my lids (I'm very fair and find this a problem). Not only this but at 21 euro it was a great price, due to the fact eden is so sticky it goes a very long way so I can see this tube lasting me a loooong time! The packaging is done in traditional urban decay style and is very pretty. Overall I adore this primer and think its much better than the original! Would 100% recommend.
Ugh. Luckily, this was a sample in my Naked 2 palette, so I paid nothing for it. I wish someone would've paid me to use it, though, because it did nothing but mess up my shadow colors and didn't even keep the colors in place. I look like I wiped concealer all over my eyelids- even WITH dark eyeshadow shades like Busted & Blackout on. I'll be throwing this sample away, not even going to give it away, because I'm a good friend.
I got a sample of this from a friend, along with several other "flavors" of UD eye primer. It was kind of a toss up between this and the original. It came down to the original being a bit easier to work with and lasting just a little longer. If they ever stopped making the original, I would probably buy this one instead.
As a huge fan of the original UDPP, I was really excited to try Eden, because for the same price it had a little extra tint to it (helpful for those under eye discolourations).
But I am so disappointed! I have to agree with the other reviewers that Eden's consistency is totally different from the original formula- it's thicker, harder to blend, and applies streakier. Additionally, after only a couple of hours out and about, product which hadn't melted off my face had caked into the creases of my eyelids.
Stick to the original formula, people, $24.00 CAN is an awful thing to waste.
Well, l don't know to be honest. After picking up on the hype l went on eBay to get one (Eden), since Sephora packed up and left last spring. ls it supposed to stay 'wet', even after 5 or 10 minutes? Cause when l was stil in the process of putting the rest of my makeup on, this stuff was still creamy and even creased itself on my eyes, l could still move it around (l didn't use a lot) and l thought it would dry after a minute or so. Now l've bought the Tarte CC primer, but it's almost the same story. Think l'm gonna put those reviews aside next time, cause it's 3 buys and 3 (semi) misses..
I have hooded eye lids and it makes eyeshadow staying put complicated. I've tried many primers from high end to drugstore and really like the urban decay ones best. Of them all, Eden is my favourite. It is a rich creamy, consistency which stays perfectly matte and in place all day, even without eyeshadow on top. I like that it is a nude colour as it has coverage in it. I love the primer even more in it's new packaging! The tip to this is less is more, which makes it a great investment, it lasts forever. Holy grail eyelid primer, I have nothing bad to say about it.
And it's not just for eyeshadow. A little tip also with this product, if you're having difficulty with creasing of concealer under the eyes, use a little bit then put a light later of concealer over the top, then powder. It will stay put all day!
