I LOVE THIS EYESHADOW PRIMER!!! I have really really oily lids and this primer works like magic on my eyelids! It makes my eyeshadow last for so long, I sometimes I apply it before applying a liquid or gel liner to prevent smudging or creasing and it works pretty great. and you only need a tiny amount to get the job done.

This is the first eye primer I have ever purchased when I first started getting serious about wearing make up. And I love it! I continue to go back and get this when I run out. I don't think I will ever try another!

Everything was good with this primer at first. It didn't crease on me or anything. Also colors looked more vibrant. But now a couple months in my lids are getting dry. I'm going to try alternating with a less drying eyeshadow primer and see if I can use up the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. I didn't change anything else in my makeup routine so I know the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer is the culprit. Since it is drying out my eyelids I will not be repurchasing.

I really like this product but disliked how the bottle was hoarding the product inside which is impossible to get out of. But once you get over that its a great product.

My HG eyeshadow primer! I typically only use UD eye shadows, so I've received numerous times free samples of the primer with many purchases. I notice immediately after applying my lid is smooth, color is even, and the finish is silky, not sticky. I never find it creases at all, even on hot summer days. The application is what makes me really want to use a primer every time. The process is so wonderful, I notice a HUGE difference between the pigmemts and the finish when I use this primer and the application is smooth and flawless. Definitely helps to try to reduce the dreaded UD fallout as well. If you're like me and blend blend like crazy, this stuff will take your eyes to the next level. Also, I've found that this primer works best with any UD shadows. The reason? UD chemists formulate their products to compliment each other. Meaning that this primer is meant to work best with their shadows and vice versa. I've found that one tube of a smaller "travel" size from Ulta lasts me nearly 6 months. It's so worth every penny!

I have to be in the minority with this one, because I'm just not in love with this primer. I've never purchased a full sized one (I got mine in combos with eyeshadow pallets, or as samples), and I probably never will because I can't justify paying that much for a primer that doesn't work much/any better than ones I've had from the drugstore.

I love UD for their cruelty-free policy, and for making really great makeup overall, but I think this primer is just ok.

I'm not sure what it is, but this one irritates my eyes sometimes and I have to remove it. I don't have that problem with other primers.

It does keep my shadow looking great, but no better than others I've used. The only reason I like this one better than others I've tried is because it almost works like a concealer on my eyelids, so I can just use it by itself under shadow. With a lot of eyeshadow primers, I have to use concealer (or at least foundation) first to mask the purplish tone on my eyelids.

WOW.......so I got this on a school trip to pairs from Sephora 2 years ago and it wasn't cheap (about 15 Euros ish) but I noticed the difference instantly, it's easy to apply. It lasts ages and works really well with my oily eyelids and I've never seen it crease. a few weeks ago I had a water fight and this stuff made my eye shadow look like I'd just applied it even after being splashed in the face. defiantly would buy again, plus its packaging is adorable

I've tried the ELF primer and also Shadow Insurance by TF, but I like the Primer Potion the best. On my lids, my shadow lasts ALL DAY with no creasing. I tested all 3 with the same shadow on my hand and the color was more vibrant when using the primer potion. I've been using it for over a year and have not gotten bored with it, yet.

Yupp this creases beyond belief. And the price is insane! Steer clear and buy ELF or a Maybelline Color Tattoo instead.

My favorite eye primer to ever exist. My eyeshadow NEVER creases with this stuff. I just wish Urban Decay hadn't discontinued the squeeze tube.
