This product is so awesome. I was hesitant to purchase it since I purchase more mac products. Anyhow, this is completely something that I have been looking for. You can wear the product alone and leave it simple or you can use it as a primer and expect lasting results with your eyeshadow. This is the best primer I have ever purchased so far. If you want your eyeshadow to last with no crease and want a little shimmer to your eyelid this is the product for you.
I purchased this primer with the hopes that it would work just as well as the original, and add some color to the lid as well. Although I am pleased at the staying power this gives my eye shadows, I was mildly disappointed at the color payoff. Yes, I know this is a primer, not an eye shadow, but I felt like when spread around on my eye it only showed up as a sheen. That said, this is a very good primer, if used correctly (that is, the right amount of product; very, very little). I generally have little problems with creasing, but this makes neutral colors more vibrant. I generally don't use UDPP Sin for bright colors, but under neutrals it definitely bring them out.
I have no idea why this primer doesnt get as much love as the orginal! it is just as good. the trick for getting this to work is using very little and closing your eyes for 30 secs after applying!!!! its used used for neutral looks tho, dont try bright colors over this. :) love it! wore it for 5+ hours today and no fading or creasing. however since this is shimmery it does tend to look like standing oil on your eyelids.. i fix this with a sheer setting powder over this primer than apply e/s! works like a charm
I like this primer, but the only thing is that it doesn't make my eyeshadow appear more intense, but it does prevent creasing and I like the color (It's a really nice shimmery champagne color).
I think it's an overall good eyeshadow primer, and will probably buy it again.
UDPP in Sin has changed my beauty routine. I bought this in a pack with the other three "colors": the original, Eden, and Greed. Before this, shadows would never stay on, and I wouldn't feel obliged to wear them. Looking pretty at 8 AM, but like a tired, faded version of myself at 5 is no good.
Sin is, by far my favorite. I can wear this on its own for a subtle, yet polished look. More frequently, I'm pairing it with Stila Golightly or Dapple for a quick, natural look that gets compliments from guys and girls alike. Beautiful on my NC20/25 skin, and likely moreso on the pink-toned girls out there.
Thanks, Urban Decay, for helping me feel pretty like the other girls!
Like us all, I'd heard soo much about this 'legendary' primer all over the internet, It's a wee bit expensive so didn't get it right away but splashed and got it a couple of months after hearing about it.
What ashame, such a disappointment!
If (like me) if you have dry eyelids then this product is not for you!
The product does nothing it says it does, aka give your eyeshadow extra intensity, keep it in place all day. It's also very hard to apply liquid eyeliner over the top if it.
I was most excited about it making my eyeshadow colours more intense and that's the thing it does the least.
Over rall does NOT at all live up to the hype and if you have dry eyes like me, should look for a more mostuire based primer (I use Boots No7 eye primer its fantastic)
This is my favorite of the Eye Primer Potions. The color is like my skintone except shimmery, which gives my shadows a little kick! If you don't want color interferance, put a very thin layer of the potion on your lids and blend, blend, blend. If you don't want to blend it into your skin, use shadows in the brown and pink family.
While I initially wanted to try this product because of the color , I do not like this product. The color is a nice champagne. It's ok as far as a primer goes, it keeps my shadows on all day and I get no creasing. But I don't really like the fact that it's colored. I like my primer to be invisible then if I want a color I add a paint pot. And bare study is the same color. I have to address the packaging as well, it's very cute but it's just not fun trying to disect the bottle to get all the product out. I guess as far as repurchasing goes, I'd say no to this as well as the original. I prefer my Mary Kay eye primer to these both, it's a tube which is alot easier to get all the product out and cheaper.
i love urban decay's sin eyeshadow, so i had to pick this up :) i've been using it for a couple months now.. i usually will use this if i am wearing similar colored eyeshadows or all by itself. i HATE the packaging, so i 'depotted' mine into an old air-tight estee lauder moisturizer container.
some days i get no creasing at all, others i have horrible creasing. i do have very oily eyelids, so that may be a factor.
Don't get me wrong, I like this product, but do not mistake it for the original. I actually use this more like a liquid shadow than a primer. I love putting this under most shadows in the naked pallet, it really makes them pop. Especially Sin, Sidecar, baked, half baked, and so on. However, I usually wear put on the original first because the UDPP Sin does not have the same staying power on me. I still think it is worth a buy, and will repurchase. Just a heads up that it is not as great a base as the original on everyone. FYI: I have very oily lids.
