I think this primer is over rated and over hyped. It's just OK. I see minimal improvement in the lasting power of my eyeshadow but nothing like what I was expecting. I don't find it chalky or flaky, it just doesn't amaze me. I'm still looking for a great primer. Cute packaging though.
I actually cannot live without this product. Before I ever heard about eye primers, I would notice that as time went on throughout the day, my eyeshadow would crease and virtually disappear. Once I bought this though, I never have to worry about creasing and my eyeshadows stay on for longer periods of time.
There are some pieces of advice that I want to give about this product. One, a little bit goes a long way and that it dries quickly so rub it on your eyelid as soon as you put it on. Two, sure it ain't cheap, but due to the fact that you use a little bit (2 small dots) for each application, this stuff lasts at least six months. Three, I find that it works the best with UD eyeshadows but find that my MAC eyeshadows do fade (especially dark ones, e.g. Sketch) even with this on as a base.
The one negative thing about this product is the packaging, whether you get it in a sample size (so the hard plastic hourglass tube thing) or a full size (squeezy tube) you will always be hard pressed (bahaha) to get all of it out.
I have only tried one only primer (Benefit Don't Stray Eye Primer) and once I tried that I quickly went out and bought this again.
I have EXTREMELY oily eyelids /:
I had such high hopes for this primer. I decided to get it, and i tried it out.... I was very impressed in the way that it made my eyeshadows so much more vibrent. But!, it creased on me/: im really sad that it did, i ended up returning it.
But if anyone knows of a primer that works on very oily eyelids, let me know please! :)
I just got this primer (in tube) a few days ago, but I can already now tell you that this thing works wonders! I have always wanted to use eyeshadow and a lot of eye make up, but since my lids become easily oily, eye make up never lasts more than a couple of hours. UDPP has made a complete difference! It really makes my eyshadow and liner stay! For the whole day! Itīs like magic!
Most important: it doesnīt dry or make my sensitive eyes swollen or red, not even when I use it under my eye.
The tube is easy to use and I get the right amount out easily.
I like the tube...not the little bottles.
Best primer I've ever used so far.
I have used this product for a few years now and the product works very well for me. It does not cause my eyeshadow to crease and it stays on longer. The only issue I have with this product is the bottle. I don't like the difficulty of getting all of the product out of the bottle. I have seen videos on youtube showing a person how to cut the bottle open to get all of the product out. I have done that and there is alot of product left over.
Wow, is what I will start off by saying! This stuff is AMAZING. Where has this little guy been hiding all my life? I just wish I had of found out about this years ago. I recently bought the Naked palette (after purchasing many individual eye shadows from UD) and this came free with it. To be honest, all these years I really didn't think "eye shadow setting" stuff worked. Pfft. Boy was I wrong. I decided to give this a try, after seeing many tutorials online using the Naked palette. Everyone was using this stuff. I just thought the crease was normal ... and every so often I would just dab my finger on my eye lids to blend everything together. Well! This stuff keeps my eye shadow COMPLETELY in place, for hours! No crease at all. I love this stuff!
I like this product in Original and used it for a while, a while like a few years.
Great for keeping eyeshadows and liners on my lids all day.
But lately, I found it drying to my eyelids and even contributed to creepyness on my upper eyelids. Way too drying! On top of that, the formula seems to smudge my foundation / concealer badly. So I always have to apply some eyeshadow instead of going shadowless.
So now I am trying NARS primer.
I don't think I need to say anything about it! This is the best primer I have used. :) Btw if you want a budget it's also a good choice to buy e.l.f mineral primer but this one, worth it!
