As other reviewers have said this is a great on-the-go product when you don't have time to do full eye makeup. It's great as a base when you want to add some shimmer to your look. If you don't like frost and shimmer this product might not be for you.
Like the packaging, but doesn't make my eye makeup stay any longer... my eyeshadow STILL creases just as quickly! No difference at all.
I am the odd one out. I didn't like this. I was so excited to order it. I love the packaging it comes in and the color of the tube. But that is about it. The color is too frosty imo. It made my eyes look blah. It has the same wearing power as the regular PP but the color is just not good. I am going to return it.
Fact about UDPP Sin,
1. since the UDPP Sin have a color on it, so while you put eyeshadow on top of UDPP Sin, it will last longer than if you apply it on top of the original UDPP.
2. it does alter the eyeshadow color a little bit, but not to dramatic
3. it makes the eyeshadow color appear more frosty, meaning it will emphasize fine lines / wrinkle. I don't recommend this product for more mature skin.
the conclusion: i love this product =)
my video review on this product --->
Another complaint about the genie-bottle packaging, but I've never complained about what's it inside! This stuff works as good as the original, but it's in the color "Sin" (a shimmery peachy-pink NO GLITTER). It has the same staying power as the original no matter if I use this plain or with e/s. I like to use this plain though with just e/l cause it saves me that few extra minutes of sleep in the morning! Perfect 5 lippies and I hope UD comes out with a whole line of colors. Oh, and the box with snakes and apples, too cute LOL
ETA: this does start creasing on me after about 5 hours. The original UDPP does not ever crease on me. Will still repurchase, but I'll beware wearing this for a 8.5 hour shift!
I loved the original except the packaging drove me crazy. The new one does too, but it's worth it to me. MAC Paint Pots do crease on me after a while, but this does not. It works great as a lazy-day all over wash or as a base for shimmery looks. I also like to use it under a matte look--just a little of the shimmer comes through, very subtle and pretty, adding another dimension for matte.
I'm NC25-30 in MAC and this works great on me... it's almost nude with sparkles. It stood the test of time and lasted as long on me with no smudging or creasing of my liquid eyeliner after 12 hours... the same wear and tear and long work days as UDPP stood. Very nice.
Ok first I have to say I did not care for the original . I usually use MAC paints for priming . But I love love love this version ! This honestly works with the cheapest of cheap e/s's. The original irritated my lids but so far this one hasn't . I've been wearing it about a week but will update . BTW this is actually beautiful on its own for when you're in a tme crisis lol Will definately repurchase !
I have not tried this particular one yet but I am sure it is JUST as awesome as the other one. I gave it a 5 but I am just here to give a hint on how to get all the primer out of the genie bottle......
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CUT THE BOTTLE OPEN. When you think it is all gone remove the very top clear part at the opening. It is kind of tricky but when you remove the stopper, the wand can reach into all the areas of the bottle.You will have a lot of product on the wand but use your finger or another brush and you got tons of product left to use. you can use a screwdriver to pry it off or stick it in just a little and pull it out. Just be careful! I guess this is not as dangerous as cutting it open but still be careful!
**Click Continued for pics & swatches** I think I can give this product a pretty unbiased review, due to the fact that I'm sort of neutral on the original UDPP. I like it well enough, but I have normal-to-dry skin and my shadow doesn't tend to migrate or fade much, so I never got too excited about it. Well, I've been using the Sin UDPP for 6 days now and I absolutely love it! I'm a convert! This is a golden, shimmery version of the original, a beautiful cream that can be used as a base or an all over wash for days when you just want to look awake but not "made up". It keeps my shadow and/or liner in place for 12+ hour very active (I'm a nurse) work days. I'll second the complaints from reviewers below and say that the packaging is annoying b/c, like the original, you can't get all of the product out and have to cut the tube open to do so. My dream package would be a more open bottle that comes with a wand and a pump. Packaging aside, this product makes my mornings so much easier and easily saves me 5 minutes on those rushed or indecisive days. I simply apply to my upper lid and inner corner, smooth, add a little Mac Vanilla or Chanel Ivory to my brow bone et voila! Done. So glad this is perm :)
I could not wait to try this!! When they make my absolute favorite UD eyeshadow into their famous Primer Potion, I HAD to have it. This is an excellent product. Sin in a longwearing formula! I tested it out over a 3-day weekend and love it for just something to put on and run out the door on the weekends so I look put together, but not over the top.
This wears beautifully and the color is actually less shimmery than the regular Sin shade, in fact, I used powder Sin over this and it was actually a bit much. This is a godsend for those girls who just like to throw "something" on and run out the door in the AM. It does "play well with others" but really I think once most people try it they will be using it completely on it's own. I know UD just came out with some cream shadows, but what they should do is make an entire line like this. And yes, the packaging is still the crappy, but oh so cute Genie Bottle, looks like we'll be performing surgery on this on too, girls.
