When i first got this, i used it with a revlon cream shadow, and it creased. So, it doesn't help cream shadows from creasing on my lids.
This product does, however: make the colors last all day, doesn't crease (on shadows).
I do have to use a bit more then i've seen some people use, because i have oily lids. It's a fantastic product.
A terrific primer. Urban Decay Primer Potion really does make shadows last all day without creasing. However, this makes shadows harder to blend on me (I'm experienced with makeup and primers- I'm not using too much or not giving it enough time to dry). It's best for oilier eyelids. I'm going to try Too Faced Shadow Insurance next as I hear it's a better primer for my normal-to-dry eyelids. Cheesy packaging that wastes product unless you remove the stopper and needs to be improved.
I have very watery allergy eyes and this is the only product that does not crease my shadow. Even PainPots crease my shadow. This product rocks. I just wish the packaging were better so that we dont need a youtube tutorial on how to remove all the product from the crazy container.
Joining the fan club! This stuff is amazing. You must try it!! Couldn't bare to take off a lippie for the packaging, but the little bottle truly is horrible! But who cares? This stuff works and you will love it!
I read about this product here and tried it. I have never been able to keep any kind of eye shadow on my lids for more than an hour or so. I have no idea why, as I do not have oily skin. But this potion works!!! Wow, does it ever work! Great stuff. I agree about the packaging, though. I was amazed to find at least a half dozen videos on You Tube demonstrating the best way to cut open the bottle and scrape out the rest of the product. Looks like Urban Decay would figure out that they just may as well change the bottle. Ha. It's worth the trouble, though.
you dont need concealer if u use this. it makes your eyeshadows pop, stay on longer, and doesn't crease. sad part is that it contains parabens. : ( not sure maybe... i will buy this again but will remain using it until it's gone.
This did make my shadows appear more vibrant, however, after just 2 days of usage, it gave me dry rough patches on my eyelids (even though I use a really hydrating eye balm at night). Maybe its not for me, as my eyelids dont tend to be oily, I mainly wanted it to enhance my eyeshadow colors. I will not repurchase and instead will try a primer thats less drying.
This is a HG product for me! I have super oily eyelids and this keeps my shadows on all day and night. I would never even think of doing eyeshadow without using this..it would be a waste of time. I do find it necessary to put a layer of loose powder over this primer else I can not blend my shadows. Also, be sure to only use a small amount else the product can get clumpy and affect the way the eyeshadow applies. Like other have said this does have stupid packaging but I make due since the payoff is outstanding. I transfer from the tube to a small glass jar and do not have any problems with it drying out.
This is an awesome product! I have all good reviews about this accept for one flaw -if you look at the packaging it is cutely shaped as a jennie bottle but those edges between the middle of the bottle and at the very end holds an enormous amount of product. I had to cut the bottle open in both places to get all of that product out. Most people will think that never is their a lot of product you get on the applicator and it is a big downer when you know that you can just use the product normally without getting the amount you would want. When you finally open it with a sharp knife it has mounds full. Other then that I think that this is a wonderful product and that the price is very reasonable because of its good quality. I would buy this product again because it works wonders under your eyeshadows complimenting them with highly pigmented colors. The eyeshadow will stick forever... until you take it off. The application has a smooth, creamy like substance and totally blends in with your eye. BUY THIS PRODUCT! By the way you can go on youtube.com to search how to open the bottle!
Genius! I have somewhat greasy eyelids, so I've had trouble making my eyeshadow last until lunchtime. Not cool. I finally broke down and bought UDPP, and I'm officially converted. My shadow stays on all day, even through my showers! It doesn't fade or smear at all. It will crease a little bit as the day goes on, but not nearly as badly as it would without primer. The only real issue I have with this is the packaging. We all know that the shape of the bottle leaves tons of unused product inside, and there's no way to get it out without cutting the bottle open! That's frustrating. But honestly, even though I'm wasting product, I'll still repurchase. HG primer for sure!
