This primer is simply the best. I can use this product, do my eye makeup at 7 in the morning, and still have it fully intact at midnight. That's a true miracle, considering how oily my skin is! It is fairly expensive, however I have had the same tube for over a year and use it at least 3 times a week, and I predict I still have at least 6 months to go! I tend to be skeptical about the hype for "cult" products like this, but this really lives up to its name!
I am really impressed w/this. I got a huge sample of this at Christmas time & I've barely put a dent in the tube. It really does grip the eye makeup. I get about 18 hrs-24 hrs. of eyeshadow wear w/this, depending on the quality of the makeup.
This has never impressed me. Is it a good primer for me? Yeah. Is it great? No, I've used better for cheaper. I'll use this if I have it, but I won't go out and buy it myself.
I could not use Eden because it was too white, so I bought this one hoping that I too able to catch up with the hype. This is also too light color and does not match with my NC35-37 skin tone. Coverage is just slightly better than Eden. I don't understand how Urban Decay gets so high rating. Just like other Urban Decay products, this was not Wow product for Wow pricing.
I'm not even exxaggerating when I say I may have the oiliest eyelids on planet Earth. Nothing works for me; not foundation, not concealer, absolutely nothing. So when I read the rave reviews about this I thought I'd try it, for £14 a pop here in London I was expecting nothing but miracles, and it delievered! Has a sticky like texture after it's applied so eyeshadows and cream shadows adhere well to it. I even use it under my eyes to prime for my concealer which stops those annoying little undereye creases! I wouldn't know how it lasts for more than 5/6 hours and I also can't judge it on it's performance during summer heat, however I will be packing this baby with me on holiday and I'll put it to the test then. Until then I'll continue being smitten with the great job it does for my lids. :)
It works pretty well but my eyeshadows still crease after a few hours, and for the price I want them to stick like glue.
Great primer. Veryy long lasting.
I've been using the too faced eye shadow primer for a few years now but by 4-8pm (varies and depends on weather), my shadow would crease especially my left eye. I didn't really think it was the primer's fault since my left eye would crease first, I just figured my eyelids were really oily. BUT..... When I tried a sample of urban decays primer... STAYS ON ALL DAY without creasing. I can put eyeshadow on at 9am and it will still be perfect at 10 or 11 pm (and even if its hot outside).
New favorite eye shadow primer
I got this product as a sample from the Urban Decay Naked pallet and ran out very fast so i bought the original size. It helps reduce the oil on your eye lids and it keeps your eye shadow on all day. It has a skin color base which doesn't really help the color of the eye shadow "pop" but it keeps the color on. I DO NOT recommend this product for humid weather because it creases badly. It creases especially when you wear dark colors (black,grey,plum, dark brown) I don't think this product is as good as everyone says but its the best primer I've tried yet along with BeneFits primer.
I love this Eye Primer. I bought it together with Naked 2 palette and All Nighter setting spray and cannot really decide which one of the three I love the most.
Plus: Texture is smooth and silky. It sets the eyeshadow as in stone - it does not crease (and I have oily eyelids) and colours are more vibrant.
Minus: The package leaves things to be desired as I have found it easy to squeeze out too much. Also, I sometimes struggle to get it into the corners of my eyes. It should be applied BEFORE foundation because if applied after it can smear and crease the foundation and concealer.
Overall an AMAZING product, has never let me down and has great qualities! Definitely recommended even though its a bit on the pricey side.
