Love this product!! It's like cement for eyeshadow. It's very easy to use, just smooth it onto eyelids and let dry for half a minute. For those of you complaining of caking and creasing, you're probably using too much. A little goes a long way with this product
Let me start by saying i have the updated packaging which is about 10x better than the doe foot applicator; its a tube and you just squeeze it out onto your finger and smooth it on you eyelids. This stuff is like cement for eye shadow. It won't even come off while im in the shower. I have to use my neutrogena makeup wipes which i normally just use to take off my water proof mascara. The bad thing about this product is thatit almost works too well. Like if i mess up my eeyeshadow even just a little bit i have to wipe it all off and start over because the shadow will not budge. Also, if you get macara on the skin it which you applied the primer it will not come off. Over all its a really good product but you have to be careful. I would repurchase though
I think this is a decent primer.
But I feel like MAC Paint Pot, suits my needs better.
When I use MAC Paint Pot, I can keep my eyeshadow decent for a whole day.
With the Urban Decay primer, not so much..
It's not bad, but I feel like there are better primers on the market.
Yep! It does work. But a little too dry for my already-dry skin.
My daughter does makeup and recommended this. Just recently my eyelids have become very oily and I wasn't able to wear my favorite eye Longwear cream shadows. Eyeliners wouldn't even last 2 hours, but this is worth the purchase price!!!!! My BB Longwear cream eyeshadow as well as my powders last through the day, until I take them off!!!! I can wear just the eyeliner without it disappearing. Very good choice for me:) I did some reading before I my purchased, tried Benefit's primer and used an eyeshadow base, and concealer that was recommend by Bobbi Brown consultant. With the 4 choices of UD, I decided to stick with the Original color. The bottle has been updated to a tube and it's very easy to apply.
I had been battling the creasing after 2 hours eyeshadow problem for years before I found this! The first time I purchased this, it was on the recommendation of a Sephora sales clerk who had on this bright and wild and crazy eye makeup (which was not my style and scared me!) and I thought, what am I getting myself into! But I am glad that I listened to her because she wasn't kidding. My eyeshadows don't budge for anything. So I have been using this for I would say about 7 years now. Originally I wasn't loving the packaging on this. That was the one downside. It came in a bottle with a wand and I felt that I was throwing away product because the longer you used it, the harder it became to extract the stuff from the bottle. I also found that I had been using too much of it with the applicator that it came with. I was so pleased that they changed the packaging on this to a tube you can squeeze the product from. I am no longer wasting or using too much product. A little tiny bit of this stuff on each eyelid goes a long, long way. You really don't need to use much of this at all to reap the benefits from it. What I also love about this primer is that it's colorless and literally lasts 24 hours. I had previously used cream color bases and everything else under the sun to stop that annoying creasing and nothing else worked. I can use this under those cream color bases and it makes the colors more vibrant and it keeps them where you put them. I don't find that it makes my lids too "sticky" which is not ideal for blending any colors that you layer on top. I actually think that this helps the blending process more than hinders it. It has definitely increased the performance of my shadows and color bases and I never do my eyes with out it.
Oh brother! i must have the strangest lids ever or im doing it wrong. ( i have the one in the little tube) THis still creases like anything on me. I applied this morning and put on some clinique all about shadow on top and looked in the mirror and my lids are bare except for the line of caked up shadow in my crease.
ive used it as mentioned above and with benefit creaseless cream shadown and colour tattoo (both with powder and without) and its always creases galore.
I am using the sample that came with the original naked palette. Its definitely a great primer and I finally understand what all the hype is about. This goes on smoothly and blends nice. My eyeshadows last longer and more intense.
Love this product. It is easy to apply and it looks very smooth. It helps to even out the skin tone over my eyelids which makes my eyeshadow color pop. It also helps my eyeshadow last all day long.
This product is so inconsistent. I'm using the sample size that came in my Naked palette, and while I think it works better than, say, the ELF $1 eye primer, it is incredibly hit and miss. Some days, I can wear eye shadow for 10 hours without it creasing, other days, I don't even get 6 hours of wear out of this before my eye makeup creases. This is a problem since the only days I wear eye shadow and really need it to stay looking nice are days when I'm out of the house for 12 hours.
What I found the most odd was that it works better with eyeshadows that aren't from the Naked palette. I try to apply colors from this palette sheerly for a subtle daytime look, but they apply so unevenly with this primer and look patchy. So weird.
I love UD products and so I'm disappointed that one of their most celebrated products is such a flop for me. I think when this runs out, I'll look for something else.
