ok there are already a gazillion reviews for this. i just want to say (1) this was not magic HG for me, but better than LM eye canvas; and (2) the plastic bottle BREAKS if it falls on hard floor. i knocked mine over by accident + it cracked completely around the bottle so bad there was no way to save it + i had to throw it out :(
this primer is a total lifesaver. I have Asian eyes, and my lids are oily as hell which would cause my eye shadow to crease really badly. but with this product my eye shadow stays nice and put for at least a whole day and i'll only find very little to no creasing. if only I discovered this product much sooner, I would have saved myself a lot of bad make-up days at school!! my only con is the price, apparently e.l.f. primer works just as well for only $3, so when I run out of UDPP I may try that as well.
love this stuff i tend to have oily eyelids but this stuff is soft n helps the eyeshadow stay on well..in fact i slept in my eyemakeup..i know i know for shame...it was an accident but, anyway my eyeshadow still looked good definitely would buy again.
-DEFINITELY prolongs the wear of your eye shadows! Great for oily lids. My eye shadows stay put all day and they look as good as they did when I put them on.
-I love how they have different versions. They have a shimmery beige version called "Sin" which is gorgeous as well. I like the original version as well though.
-The packaging is adorable. Definitely looks like a potion.
-the price is a little high..especially since the ELF eye shadow primer is literally the exact same thing and only costs 3 bucks. I honestly would still be using it if I hadn't discovered the ELF one. If the ELF one just fell off the face of the earth I would go back to using this Urban Decay one in a heartbeat though!
-Hard to get a hold of! I wish Urban Decay was sold in more places. I can only get it online or at my Ulta which is pretty far from where I live.
Overall this is a great product, but if you're on a budget and hate splurging the 18 dollars for it the ELF one is just as excellent. Not bashing the Urban Decay one at all because I still love it very much :)
I could not live without this primer. It is so smooth and creamy and it really does the biz!
I was excited to try this product out because I have heard such rave reviews about so when I bought my Naked palette I was pretty excited. But unfortunately it did not stay that way. I found that it did not truly get my eyeshadow to last any longer than it would without it and it make my eyelids quite greasy. I'm infinity grateful it came free with my palette because I would never ever purchase it on its own, especially because ELF makes an eyelid primer that is AMAZING and 1$. Its a no brainer in my opinion. I feel that with the Primer Potion you are forking over A LOT of cash for the brand not the quality.
Its leaves chalky marks where you've put it even if youve blent it well but its an ok primer. Packaging sucks (old packaging) but I think i'de just stick to my concealer or try a different primer
I have oily eyelids and always had the problem of my eyeshadow creasing and they never stay which is sometimes quite annoying. This is a life saver product, it not just made me eyeshadow and eyeliner stay, it has also seem to get rid of my oily eyelids.
Thumbs Ho to this product,
I received this as a sample & was really looking forward to using it after reading many great reviews. This was very drying on my eyes, I actually wet a clothe and removed some before applying shadow because I could feel the tightness. Did my shadow stay on? Oh yeah, like it was tattooed on me, lol. If it was a long day/special occasion, then I could see using this. But for me on the regular no. It's just too drying & tight feeling. (like I hair sprayed my eyelids) I'll stick with Too Faced eye primer which holds well, but doesn't leave me so dry & tight. One thing I did notice in reviews is that many said they have oily eyelids so maybe this is why UD works so well for them. I have another sample which I'm going to give to a friend who also says she has oily eyelids and see if that's the ticket for this product. By the way, I don't have dry eyelids. They're just not oily. :-)
Overall, a really good eyeshadow primer. When I forget to use eye cream the night before, the primer does highlight a small dry patch I have near my inner corner, but other than that it does everything an eye primer should. But definitely get the tube instead of the bottle, it's much easier to get the product out!
