This stuff is truly a miracle product for me. I pretty much ONLY wear mineral makeup, more specifically Everyday Minerals, and those of us who have used it know how sometimes their eyeshadows are hard to get to show up, to look vibrant like they should, and to LAST. I had gone back and forth from their e/s to regular ones for a couple years because I got so tired of having it fade off after an hour or so. Finally I decided I'd give this a go. I am SO glad I did. I just washed my face 12 hours after having applied my eyeshadow and it still looked *just* as fresh and vibrant as it did right after putting it on. That's just amazing to me. I was even wearing a pastel shadow and those NEVER show up well on me and definitely don't last long at all. With this, the lilac color stayed true all day and night. I'm in awe. Barring any kind of allergic reaction or drying out of the lids, I will most definitely continue purchasing this. As everyone else has said, the packaging is totally impractical and I'm not looking forward to trying to get the last bits out. It does look cute, but geez. Also, for those of you with sensitivities to bismuth oxychloride, be warned that this product does contain it. I wasn't aware of that when I bought it and my skin doesn't like it very much, but for whatever reason this isn't causing me any problems. I hope that continues! Love this stuff!
Great product, the only thing that keeps eye makeup on my super oily lids. They are now perfect still at the end of the day.
I live in New Zealand and buy this product from the USA as it is not available in my country.
Such a shame about the packaging, I eventually cut the container in half and re-package in small air tight containers to make it last. But you shouldn't have to do that-still it is worth it for the end result
While this doesn't crease, it does dry out lids horribly causing peeling and bumping - not cool. I have extremely oily lids and prefer TFSI (Too Faced Shadow Insurance) for a primer. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with oily lids, and especially not to anyone with dry/normal lids. Also, I shouldn't have to cut into a product to be able to get it all out - shady, shady UD!
I like how well this primes the eye lid for shadows, and it certainly prevents creasing (and I'm excited about the new color sin coming out)...however I took away two lippies because it doesn't neutralize the color of the lids and how horrible the packaging is. I would still repurchase though because this is very easy to apply, no brush needed and absorbs into the skin quickly. I like to use this for school when I'm pressed for time.
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.
