I have tried this and the original, but I VASTLY prefer this Sin version. I always wear shimmery shadows, and this makes a great base for all of them without being crazy overkill. The color is pretty nice as well, not too dark, and not too pink. Staying power is incredible with this product on. I layer it with my usual shimmery ivory powder shadow and practically have to chisel it off.
The packaging sucks however. I really hope that is addressed soon. A squeeze tube with a wand would be ideal.
Bought this because I have used the original primer potion for ages & I really liked the shimmer. I suppose it would be a great primer for a night out but for a whole day it sucks. When I do my makeup at 6 am & use the original primer potion my makeup will last 16 hrs, but not even half of that w/ this. Taking it back asap.
As an aside, UD sucks when it comes to packaging this stuff. I'll soon be chopping this bottle (of original) up to get to all the hidden product. If you don't know what I'm talking about go to youtube & search for 'urban decay primer potion'.
The primer works exactly as I wish it would. It does have a nice color when wearing it alone; the staying power is even better than the original. Love it so much!
I first got this as a sample and when I finally got around to trying it was instantly in love with it. First, the color is great on it's own and it cuts any eyelid oiliness you might have. next, if you want to add shadow it guarantees that it'll last all day. So I think this is a great two-fer. Am already on my second purchase and I also give it as Xmas gifts. Yes, it's that good.
This Primer Potion is beautiful! It works the same as UPDD, but with a tint of color. It also has a nice effect on the eyeshadows you put over! Plus, it looks great alone!
The UD Sin Primer Potion is pretty good if you are going to use it as a highlighter under the brow bone because of its shimmery champagne color. As an eyeshadow primer however, i wasnt impressed. The eyeshadow did come out true to color, but it looked textured, almost like snake skin texture. I also dont like the wand applicator because i dont feel like i can get use of all of the product in the packaging that way. What i disliked the most about it was that it seemed to flake up, almost form a crusty texture in the inner corner of my eyes. It is similar to Stila Kitten Eye Wash which i think i like better.
I absolutely love the SIN primer potion as it is such a gorgeous champagne color that is subtle and gives you a great glow. Also love that this can be work as eyeshadow when you are in a hurry or jsut under a ncie bold black liner as I like to do. Also I love teh texture of this as is is super creamy. I am not on teh boat with everyone who is diehard in love with the orginal PP sadly to say lol. I used to use it for years and honestly the texture was always dry and never appleid as creamy as I liked it to like my current staples for a matte shadow base (Pop Beauty Eye Magnet and Bare Escentuals Prime Time).
I was excited about trying this because I love Urban Decay's original Primer Potion. The good things about it are it is a very pretty shimmery champagne color and it imparts a shimmer to shadows applied over it. However, as far as crease prevention and staying power for eyeshadow, it may do more than nothing, but it is not nearly as good as the original. Also, some eyeshadow colors look slightly off applied over Sin primer that look beautiful applied over the original.
The only time I wear Sin Primer Potion is when I am going somewhere I can away with very shimmery eyeshadow and I won't be gone for longer than about 3 hours, because that's about how long shadows last for me with this. Even for these occasions I would rather wear the original, but I want to use this out. Especially because they are the same price, I will only buy the original Primer Potion in the future.
i cant decide if i like this or TFSI better. i like UDPP sin for when i wear sin eyeshadow, or similar colors. even MAC expensive pink, a cheap wine colored shadow from the $ store, they both look better w/ this. I have never used the original, so i can't compare Sin to that, but it is a bit drier than TFSI. that being said, i have no problems w/ shadows creasing, fading, or smudging w/ this product. it does leave a beautiful sheer wash of color when used alone, and when used w/ sin e/s over top makes a gorgeous shimmery eye. i dont think i can ever choose between TFSI or UDPP, i love them both.
If I had never tried the original UDPP maybe I would love Sin PP. I use UDPP for eye shadow as well as brows, and Sin PP can't really be used for that. It's a lot thinner than the original, but that's okay. It makes shadow last pretty well for me, but the shimmer doesn't really do anything. All in all it's an interesting concept, but for the same amount of money I would rather have something that's more of a multi-tasker.
