I really, really wish that UD would package this in a squeeze tube or at least a bottle that didn't trap too much product. That said, this is HG! I like it better even than the original UDPP. It's great for days when I don't feel like putting on eyeshadow. The color is a subtle shimmery champagne beige, not too yellow for my cool-toned PPP skintone. And, of course, it does the same terrific job as the original UDPP at keeping my eyeshadow crease-free and non-melty throughout the whole day. I am definitely stocking up!
ETA 2/06: I applied UDPP Sin at 6 AM this morning (what can I say, I'm an early riser) and MAC e/s pigment in Pinked Mauve on my lids. Here it is over 11 hours later and my eye makeup is fresh as a daisy! No creases, no smudges, no powder speckling my cheeks, NOTHING but smooth e/s and shimmery Sin tint. Plus the Sin spared me from having to apply a second color to my browbone, thus cutting down on my makeup time. If I could give this wonderful stuff 10 lippies I would!
I LOVE IT!!! The shimmery color makes my eyehadow look amazing! I will definately repurchase! I like this one better than the original.
As a recent UDPP addict and a Sephora Beauty Insider, I just had to try this when it came out. I love it! It has the same great non-creasing holding power as the original UDPP, but with the added bonus of a shimmery color, which is great for lazy days. Some may not like it for the fact that it has color, as it doesn't look right with all e/s, but it works as a great base for neutral/brown/earthy colors.
Love the original so I was excited for this one. I am enjoying it now but don't think I would buy it again over the original because the color is a tiny bit too dark for me. It would be perfect if it were a little more pink or peach than brown in tone.
I have fallen away from wearing eye shadow. In general, it's more trouble than it's worth for me and I don't take the time to do it in the morning before work. This new UDPP in Sin is so convenient and pretty that it has put me back on the eyeshadow bandwagon. Yes, it's frosty, but for me, it works. So far I've worn it once by itself and once with some darker brown shadow over it and I have been pleased. Staying power is awesome. Will repurchase!
I also seem to be in the minority with this one. It's way too pearly/frosty for me, and I don't think it holds my eyeshadow as well as the original. It also seems to make my regular shadows change in tone too much - some appear darker, some browner. I was sooo excited about this, but now am bummed. But, like any other product, you won't know until you try!
I love this product even better than the original. It is a little frosty looking but personally I like it. It works just as good as the originial - my eyeshadow lasts ALL day without creasing, without wearing off. The bonus to me is that I don't have to wear shadow at all. It's a great basic color for "no makeup" weekends.
I was so eager to receive it but when I used it I was slightly disappointed. Alone, I didn't think it was that pretty, I little too frosty for my skin tone (NW45). When I applied eyeshadows that were my complexion or lighter it made the finish so beautiful (think Victoria's Secret runway). When I applied eyeshadows that were darker than my complexion (like in my crease) I could not get the eyeshadow to show up. Carbon would not show up no matter how much I put. I am going to play around with it some more but I don't recommend it for any type of smokey eye look.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! When i read that UD was coming out with this product i had to buy it since i love UDPP. The color is gorgeous and i have no problem blending my e/s. I do use a brush with this instead of my finger since i don't want to get the product on my finger. I would buy again and again. (I don't even care that i will have to cut the bottle at some point.)
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.
