It does it's job well making my eyeshadow last longer than usual without it . Only reason why I gave it a 4 because I dislike using it's wand a bit cause I'm usually rushing to get my makeup done for school and I tend to mess up (like I may use to much or too little then have to reapply) I'm preferable using a cream brush used primer . Basically it depends if you have time to using this product or it's just me .

I really love the original Eye Primer Potion. I discovered it a few years ago and I truly don't know what I would have done without it. I used the original on the day of my wedding and I never had to worry about any touch-ups.
I was excited when I heard about this new product. I usually use a champagne color all over my lids, so I thought that this would be perfect...but I was disappointed with the staying power. It does add a nice shimmer, but it doesn't seem as thick as the original. It almost made my eyes look more oily, whereas the original did not.
This product might be perfect for someone who doesn't have really oily eyelids, but for me it just didn't compare to the original primer potion. I think the original will always be in my makeup bag, but the Sin primer potion was a disappoint for me.

I really don't know how I lived without a eyeshadow primer for so long?!

I love this stuff! It's so pretty alone or it will seriously keep a shadow on.
Honestly it's my first shadow primer, but it so good I don't want to stray & try more.

This is just like the Orginal to me. Because I am brown skin, I would never wear this as a shadow, because it looks stupid, but my eyeshadow still last all day. But hey for 18 dollars it should.

Well this is pretty much like the original primer potion (which I already reviewed and love), but it cakes much more easily, which is why it gets 4 lippies instead of five.
It is really convenient if you just want a simply wash of color that lasts all day aside from being a really great primer. Unfortunately I usually ended up putting a different eyeshadow over it so the pretty champagne color couldn't peep through.
My sister is more of a minimalist when it comes to makeup so I gave this UDPP to her and she adores it.

When I first heard about this new product I was ecstatic. For years I was unable to wear eyeshadow because of my oily skin causing shadow to slightly discolor and/or quickly crease, but I tried out the original UDPP a few years ago and have never had a problem with eye makeup since... except maybe washing it off :P

So being addicted to warm browns and shimmers I almost had a heart attack when I heard about Sin, but was unfortunately let down. The formula seems a little thinner, and is definitely well pigmented with the beautiful warm champagne shimmer... but it took maybe an hour before my eyeshadow started creasing as though I didn't even have a base on. I have ofcourse tested it a few more times to be sure that the error wasn't at my fault, but I kept getting the same results.

So in the end, this was unfortunately just an expensive tube of cream eyeshadow that didn't match with quality. For gals that don't suffer from oily lids and such, this will likely be a great addition to your collection.. but I suggest sampling it first just to be sure.

Thankfully, I got this as a sample. While I've never tried the original potion, this is...ehh.

The claims of it not affecting your eyeshadow? False. The shimmer shines through, and it seems to "discolor" rather than "intensify."

It DOES hold shadow, though.

It's, sadly, very heavy feeling and slightly greasy. Can't say that I want it on my eyelids.

Oh, and the bottle? Wastes product. Go ahead and cut it open and decant it into something else.

Never trying the original UDPP, I really like this. The color is gorgeous and it keeps my eyeshadow on for much longer than without. I use this with my Victoria Secret eyeshadows which used to crease after an hour, and creasing no longer became an issue.

However, it is a touch pricey for a product that I have to fight to get to (i.e. cutting the bottle to get the rest out) only to risk having it dry out on me in a sample jar. So, as of now I'm on a hunt for a more cost effective eye primer.

This works just as well as the original. It does make shadows appear brighter without making them look too shimmery. It also keeps them on all day without any creasing. The packaging is just fine, people just dont know how to work with it. If you take the rubber stop out of the top of the bottle you will be able to use every last drop of this product without having to cut up the bottle...

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.
