I haven't tried many primers but so far this has been the one I go back to and lasts forever. Other than UDPP, I've tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance which to me was pretty decent but it always separated in the tube (ended up squeezing out this oily substance at times) so I went back to using UDPP. I've had my current full size tube for about 2 years or so and it isn't until now that I'm running out.
This primer keeps my oily eye lids from creasing all of my eye makeup. Great blendable consistency but make sure to blend this well or once it dries, you may be left with a white edge around your eyes. I use this just about everyday. I even use it when I'm not wearing eye makeup because my lids can become so oily that the oil gets into my eyes and irritates the hell out of it. A little goes a long way so this is well worth the price that it's at if you use it on a consistent basis. I'm thinking of trying out the anti wrinkle one next.
I bought on a UD sale and paid $20 for the professional sized one. I love wearing bright eye shadows w/neutrals. This makes them last soo much longer than without. I was skeptical as the regular sized one sells normally for $20 and it seems a bit much. I tried NYX version of this, but it doesn't make shadows last as long as this one does. A must have for anyone that likes bright eye shadow colors.
I bought this product 4 years ago and I have NEVER ever worn eyeshadow without it! I absolutely swear by this eyeshadow primer. It really does work and does not let any eyeshadow crease! :)
Works pretty well. It has a smooth application, dries to a satiny finish, and has basically no color on me, which is good -- HOWEVER from the very start, almost nothing would come out on the doe-foot applicator. And the tube is opaque so you can't even see what's in there -- which, I suspect, is barely anything at all. Sorry, but the quantity is not worth the price tag. You probably get more La Mer cream per dollar than this stuff but La Mer is so expensive
I used this product for close to 3 years. It was great for the first couple years. Don't know about happened recently. With this product my eyeshadow started to crease like crazy! I don't know if it was the squeeze bottle and age (maybe the oil in the squeeze tube was separating for some reason?). It was very odd.
I will not repurchase this. Ain't no college kid got time for creasing eyeshadow.
It keeps all brands of eyeshadow on all day and night. No creasing. Love this product.
I finally got this primer, and I am in love!! It is a bit more expensive than I normally would pay, but worth it. For me it really highlights the color more, than not using it. It also has great staying power, I didn't have creases for 8 hours. It really is the best one for me, I have tried the Two Face primer, and it didn't work as well with my eyeshadows. If you are looking for a great primer and way to accent your eyeshadows more, I would strongly suggest this product.
LOVEEEEEEE<3 once I got my hands on this baby I have never worn eyeshadow without this primer. It's the best! No dark crease lines no fading it's just wonderful! Works best with urban decay eyeshadow. The packaging is original and so cute! Love love love!
I have to use a primer for eyeshadow because of my oily eyelids. soooo this is thick, blends well. its whiteish on me so I have to blend it in gooood! I use a matte powder over my primers then my eyeshadow or base. but thyre primers are great you can find better ones like department store-wet and wild for less to do same job! there is no weird smell to me and I didn't break out from it.
I have the Asian monolid, so if I don't apply primer then my eyeshadow will smudge everywhere! This was the first eye primer I tried and I must admit, it works very well. One day, I forgot to use it and I realized how badly I needed to use primer. My makeup looked horrible! While I love UD's primer potion, the price deters me from picking up another one. I think I will end up shopping around for a different primer once I run out of the two I have now just to see how other eye primers match up, both cost wise and in effectiveness.
