I think this is a good primer! It works really well for preventing creasing and smudging, and intensifying colors. However, I prefer the Wet n Wild primer (from the Fergie collection) to this one because it does basically the same thing, but for a quarter of the price. Also, I had a problem with this primer making it difficult to blend. It seemed like it locked my eyeshadows into place a little too well, to the point that they would skip and look uneven sometimes. All in all I do think that this primer is good, but not worth the high price since there are more affordable options that perform the same way.
Do you want your eye shadow to stay put? Not crease? And look just like you put it on when it is the end of the work day?
This is your HG. This should be in every shadow users staple collection. Hands down the best on the market. I do not love the wand and prefer the tube. That way I could control better how much I want to use on a brush. However if you can get past the wand issues you will discover this product works. It keeps shadows looking lovely and clean. It does not hurt my sensitive eyes or skin. It removes easily with cleanser. I love UD shadows and find this works with the chemical makeup of the shadows making them stay put and look as flattering as when I first put shadow on. It helps me to blend my shadow. I have used other primers that pil or worse flake off. This does neither. It stays put and does not dry out my eyelids. I have hooded eyes which means they get more action then the average with every blink. UD primer keeps my shadows looking fine all day. Love this stuff. Just wish they could come up with an alternative to the wand and the tube. I am thinking more like a tiny eyeshadow case that you can dip your brushes into. Maybe someone will follow through and make a dippable canister.
I have been using this since college and it is something that I consistently repurchased. I have tried the e.l.f. primer which definitely works, but I far prefer the UDPP. It's something that I really hate to be without. I use it even on days when I'm not doing any eye makeup other than mascara.
This was the first eyeshadow primer I tried and I did like it. I have oily lids which always have problems with cream shadows and this helped. I've since tried the Nars eyeshadow primer and prefer that over this. I just like their more liquid consistency over the creamy one of this. I found that I often ended up squeezing too much of this from the tube.
I have very leaky eyes during allergy season and when usually certain eye products. I started using PP for the typical use of eyeshadow but also used it for under my eyes before I concealed my dark circles. Overall, I found results OK. I didn't find it to be a miracle product at all, but I haven't found a product that is during allergy season.
For normal days, this does the job. There is nothing spectacular about it for me but it will ensure that the shadow generally stays where it is supposed and for a few hours longer than it would've without a primer.
love this as a base for eyeshadows as it does not let the shadow crease and there is not much fallout with darker shadows.
Wow, I never used any eyeshadow primer in my life and this was the first product I use. It does make eyeshadow last longer and a little more difficult to remove but worth it!
Amazing! I thought this product was really hyped up, but it lasted through an entire muggy summer day and my black liquid eyeliner is still perfect like the moment when I applied it. No creasing, no pilling, and it even went on smoothly over my eye cream. A wonder! I will definitely repurchase.
I've never used urban decay products, despite my ridiculously large makeup collection. I'm approaching a very scary birthday soon (40, since you ask) and for some reason I thought that urban decay was a collection more for the younger ladies.
I recently mastered the art of liquid eyeliner, and finally discovered an amazing long lasting foundation that actually last all day and keeps me looking even of tone and bright of skin.
But was I happy with this progress? Not really.
Because when I found myself arriving home from work at night with perfect foundation and lovely black eyeliner, it started to really bother me that my eyelids were at best shiny, at worst, blank looking.
I've never thought about eye primer before, even though I wear face primer every day. When I mentioned my little problem to a young and very glamorous friend, she advised me to buy Urban Decay Naked Palette.
Sadly, funds didn't stretch to the investment. Also, I have at least four lifetimes worth of eye shadow already. When I started to read the reviews for the naked palette, though, I came across the reviews for the primer potion.
I thought why not? I'd try it.
I bought the new anti-ageing version, €22 in Ireland. It is the best product I've bought for years. I'd imagine, because the very tiny tip doesn't allow me to waste any product, that it'll last forever.
I now finish my days with eye popping colour, as fresh looking as when I apply my makeup in the morning.
I'm absolutely delighted with this potion. In fact, having used it for just a couple of weeks, I don't see how I'd survive without it, having owned it.
As well as making my colour last all day, it makes the colour much stronger on application. What used to be a fairly boring light brown shade suitable for the office, is now a fabulous highlighter type colour.
I won't be without this product again.
A sales girl at Ulta suggested this primer. I don't wear much eyeshadow, but I do wear mascara and black eyeliner on my upper lid. I also have crazy oily lids and in the summer, I look like I have black shadows in my creases bc it usually smears from being so oily. This primer has helped stop this. I apply this primer, then dust over my regular face powder, and then apply my eye makeup. It works fabulous for me :) btw, mine didn't come in a package w a wand, its a squeeze tube.
