This product really helps my eyeshadow stay in place for hours longer than when I don't use it. One product I can't live without! I'm on my 4th tube!
This product is excellent! I used to have such a hard time with eyeshadows- they would crease within a few hours of application! I was searching for the perfect eyeshadow base- because I had given up on applying eyeshadows! I tried this a few months ago, and I'll never use anything else. This product is wonderful and have superb staying power!!! I would highly recommend to anyone that had difficulty keeping their eyeshadow on. Good Luck!
Before I found this, my eye shadows always fadded off somehow. They just were not staying. Then from a different forum I learned about this product. I must say this stuff is AWESOME! Plus, when I just need to cover up the redness in my lids, I just want a natural look, I just use the primer.
My first trial size bottle of this was not a good experience. It must have been dried out, or old. Since then, I bought another UD palette with a larger trial size in it, and it did not dry my lids out! I use it very sparingly, and just on the lids, not any higher up. It really does make the shadows brighter and last into the next day if you need it that long, say on a long flight. ;-) I find myself reaching for it every time I want my makeup to look great, but not for a day around the house, or to the grocery. I will continue to use and repurchase this product. I might add, if you have had a bad experience with the primer in a palette, or a small bottle, take it back for a new one, and try again. I think it has likely dried out in the older well known palettes. Everyone wants the newer palettes that come out, therefore the oldie but goodie one's are on the shelves for longer periods of time. That is what I have decided anyway. Really good stuff!
It works great, I think. Although I hate the childish container and the fact that it's not very long-lasting. I also have some difficulties removing just parts of my makeup when I wear this; if I just want to remove a bit of eyeshadow, instead of making it somewhat smudgy, it removes everything so it's obvious where I've removed makeup. Hard to explain, but I feel like it acts as a sort of layer; this is very noticable also when I am to remove everything with a wipe, everything comes straight of. Although in the latter situation, it's not a bad thing. I might not repurchase, I think I will try something else before I go back to this.
I honestly do not understand all the raves about this product. It was my very first product that I had bought from Urban Decay because I heard SO many great things about it. It was ok. It made my lids smooth and maybe even a bit more even looking color wise with its nudish color, but my eyeshadows did not last as long as I'd expected. May I say, my eyelids are not very dry or very oily. Plus, it didn't last me very long for the price. I might have been used too much [since this was my first eyeshadow primer], but it just didn't wow me. I will not purchase again.
It's so hard getting product out of this thing but once you remove the rubber cleaner bit out.. Voila!
It's a bit pricy at 9pounds but it definitely does do the job! I can tell that without the primer my eyeshadow creases badly and there's quite a bit of fallout. This magical primer helps my eye makeup last a very very long time! From early morning to the late evening! Love it!
This is definetly a great primer. It makes your eyeshadows pop while producing a smooth canvas. My eyeshadow seems to stay most of the day but it does tend to crease my eyeliner if I have it on with my eyeshadow (more than likely because my lids are smaller, i'm half asian). I was using Clinque's base before but this works much better.
I can not believe I have yet to review this product... because I absolutely love it! After all the years Ive plastered my eyes with eyeliner and cringed over the fact that it would always become a smeared gloppy mess after a few hours... I cant believe I never heard of a product such as this! I know its considered a base to keep your eyeshadow from creasing (which it does quite remarkably) but I really like the fact that this keeps my eyeliner put! no matter if Im using my most expensive eyeliners or the drugstore crap, it doesnt smudge or budge! I havent tried shadow insurance so I guess thats next on my list.. but Im on bottle number two of UDPP!! love it! minus one lippie because its not quite neutral on my pale pale skin.. I can see it in some areas if I dont cover it with shadow but other than that.. no complaints! (oh and packaging... not so great) k... Im done promise!
This is amazing, I do not know how I lived without it. Smooth application, helps eyeshadow look darker, last longer and crease free.
I know there are some complaints on packaging and having to depot it in the end. I spoke with customer services and they are in the process of coming up with new packaging!
