For years I always had issues with my eyeliner constantly smudging after a couple hours. I always thought it's because of my eyelids and how oily it tends to get throughout the day. Finally decided to give this a try as I have nothing to lose anyway. My god.. This makes the application of my eyeliner so much easier and my eyeliner has never looked so perfect prior to using this! No more smudging or having it transfer onto my lids! Eyeliner looks like it's freshly applied even after eight hours.
So far this & Mary Kay's eye primer are the only ones that can handle my oily lids the most! I do recommend the tube you can squeeze rather than getting the kind w/the wand for convenience & i feel the squeeze tube lasts longer!
Pros: Primer goes on smoothly not leaving white streaks, eyeshadow stays in place most of the day (5-8 hours at the most).
Cons: Kinda pricey, if you get the wand not getting all of your moneys worth, slight smell, figuring out the right amount to use for product to work.
I did not know something like this existed.....I thought my shadow and liner would always wear off within an hour of putting them on. I have the oiliest eyelids! I accidently stumbled across this product while just looking reviews for different items on this site, I believe someone mentioned this in an eyeshadow review. After reading mostly positive glowing reviews, I picked up a sample size not really thinking it would help me. Not that I don't believe in everyone's reviews here, but I had no idea how this could work. Well, I am thrilled to say it does! I was so astonished to find out that after a whole day of physical work, my liner and shadow were still there. I have this in the original color and I love how it just provides a neutral color to my lids and under eyes. I will not ever be without this product for as long as I wear makeup or even on days I don't!
Compare this to too faced.. This works better :) . I have extremely oily lids. Gets oily within two hours. I use this then a dusting of makeup forever hd setting powder and no more transferring of eyeliner to bottom lid. Does have a bit of creasing after about 6 hours. But never thought my eyeshadows could stay on for so long!!
This primer did NOT work for me. It made my eyes even greasier than without it.
I cannot get enough of this primer! I just love it. The packaging is great because since it comes with a brush, its hygienic. it really helps improve the shade of my eye shadows and even when I just wear (any) eye liner alone, it helps it stay longer lasting.
This is a really nice product to invest in. I've tries other primers, but always come back to UDPP.
The BEST primer! I have very oily eyelids and I am asian so my eyeshadows always crease and smudge everywhere. The only thing that saves my eyeshadow is this primer. Love it! I do have to make sure my skin is well-moisturized though before using this because it can cause dryness. It's weird having dry and oily eyelids :0P
If you don't have very oily eyelids, this primer is very good. It has good staying power and increases the vibrancy of your eye-shadows. It is my go-to primer during the cooler months.
However, during the warmer months, I tend to have very oily eyelids. Therefore, I use the Eden version of this primer; and it is fantastic!!!
The only thing frustrating is that due to its packaging, unless you de-pot the product, you waste a lot of product.
Based on reviews, I expected much more. Although it helps my shadow last longer than it would without a primer, my shadow creases under less than four hours of wear. I have EXTREMELY oily lids so that may be the reason why but for the price, I had high expectations. I'm just using it until I run out. I've recently tried Wet n' Wild's new primer and it works SO much better than this one. It doesn't make my shadow crease after 6+ hours of wear and it's much more affordable.
