Primer potion has solved the problem of my eye makeup creasing on my top lids and liner running under my eyes. I also don't have to do any touch ups to my makeup all day. Primer potion also makes eyeshadows more vivid. Enkore on youtube has a demo video of this. I like that it is matte and dries colorless. I tested Sin, the colored version, and it was visible for hours and hours. So, I'm assuming this has similar staying power. The price isn't bad at $17, especially because so little product is required per use. The packaging looks cheap, which made it hard for me to take the product claims seriously until I read all the glowing reviews. I hope they fixed the problems with being able to get all the product out. I think the new bent wand tip was designed to solve the problem.

I LOVE this stuff ! it is my HG e/s primer, and it does exactly what it says it does. After I apply this, I have to work fast so that I can blend my e/s in properly. If I let my un-blended e/s sit on my lids after applying this stuff (and letting it dry, of course), it'll stay put. My e/s stays put and vibrant. There are many nights when I just forget to wash my face b/c I'm so tired, and I wake up to my e/s looking the exact same way it did when I first applied it. This stuff is smooth, lightweight and easy to apply. My only gripe is the packaging. While cute, I fear that once I run low on this stuff that I'll end up cutting it open and decanting it into a 5g jar. I think the packaging would be a lot better if it were in a put with a screw-top lid and more solid like MAC's e/s primers. They can still pull off the adorable look if they went for the pot packaging instead.
I see they've changed the regular doe-foot applicator to a bent doe foot applicator. Might help a little, and I will have to give that one a shot to see for myself. :)
Either way, I will buy this again and again.

I have read the reviews here on MUA and have saved money and potentially avoided costly mistakes. I have bought some products that I would not have even known about if not for you reviewers. So I thought Iíd contribute too and hopefully others can make some informed choices as I have. I'm really impressed with this.

Well what can I say that already hasnít been said about this. Gone are the days that I have had to bring my eye shadow with me on a night out to touchup. So now, if I have a tiny clutch, its valuable space is used for my keys and cab fare home. Hurrah for this primer. Simply put Ė Buy it! Iíve got three in my drawer right now in case Urban Decay have some mad fit and discontinue it. You just never know.

I have to say Im very very impressed with this product. Ever since I can remember my eyeshadow either disappears within a couple of hours or it creases- even crease free eyeshadow still creases.

I read reviews about Urban Decay Primer Potion for eyes and decided to give it a try.

My eyeshadow SERIOUSLY LASTS ALL DAY! It doesnt crease either. Even when I hit the gym straight from work and run on the treadmill for an hour sweating buckets down my face - my eyeshadow remains intact - its amazing. This is a keeper for me.

My only gripe with it is I think the application stick could be improved - its a bit messy - but other than that - it gets the stars from me.

If they could invent one for lips that keeps my lipstick on all day I could save a bloomin fortune on replacement lipsticks!!

I think EVERYBODY knows that this is simply the best stuff on the market. It really does what it says, and keeps my eyeshadow on ....for a very very very looong time! The only down fall is the packaging. I was ready to throw out my first bottle because i thought it ended but I decided to cut it open and see if there is any more left...THERE WAS A WHOLE FRICKIN LOT LEFT!! There was enough left to last me like...a half a year or a whole year! I don't know know what to do about the packaging...but since the product itself is amzing I am on my 2nd bottle and it's awesome. :::))) ♥

First off, this is my first review of a product. I just never could get myself to write a review since most products I have tried never seemed so bad or so good. Until I tried UDPP...I had to try it based on all the rave reviews...and I'm really glad I did. Yesterday, I wore Lancome's eye shadow that creased on me within an hour of application, especially due to the hot weather. Today, I wore the same eye shadow with the UDPP and my shadow has been in place all day since the morning and no crease still! Can't believe it.

I wanted to love UDPP; I wanted it to be HG material, but alas, it falls just short of the finish line. While it does make my shadows more vivid and true to color, it tends to make my eye makeup crease more than it does without this product. It will also extend the longevity of my shadow, but again it tends to crease badly. I've tried using a variety of powders, creams, and pencils as shadow, but UDPP is definitely the creasing culprit on me. I do continue to use it on a semi-regular basis, as I like how it makes the colors more vivid, but I do not use it for a regular workday so I can avoid the awful creasing it seems to cause. Maybe it's just my oily eyelids, but TFSI seems to stop creasing much better than this product!

LOVE the Primer Potion! It goes on with a nice, matte finish and it holds my eyeshadow ALL day! I just wore it to an outdoor fest, I was roasting and sweating all day in the hot sun wearing fuscia showdow and black liner. When I got home and looked in the mirror, my eye makeup was still perfect!

The only thing that sucks is the shitty packaging. When I first bought mine, it fell in the sink and he base cracked and all the product oozed out. I was pissed!

Despite the horrible packaging, I love love love this eyeshadow primer! I have very oily lids and this is the only primer that makes my eyeshadow last all day without creasing. The cream is a light beige color that dries to a matte finish. This primer truly is a God-send for people with very oily eyelids, like me. Your eyeshadow will not crease with this primer, no matter what you throw at it. It makes your colors more vivid, and the lasting power is infinite. It even helps with the staying power of your eyeliners (cream, gel, pencil, liquid, etc...). Comes off easily with water, yet won't budge under sweat, tears, or even the horrible humidity of south Louisiana! Here's a tip if you find blending to be a problem with this primer: Set the primer with a translucent powder. This will not change how the shadow wears or looks, but will aid in blending. Now for the one downfall of this product... The main problem that I have with this product is the packaging. After a while of using the UDPP, you begin to think that you have run out of product. It's not so. Some people resort to cutting open the packaging, which I have done in the past, but I don't do that anymore. The problem that I ran into whenever I'd cut open the packaging is that there would be very little pieces of the packaging in the cream from cutting it open. I now take the plastic stopper out of the top and find that I get more product that way. This is the 5th bottle that I've purchased, so I'd say that it's safe to assume that I'd repurchase! This retails for around $17 at your local Sephora, Ulta, or on urbandecay.com.
