Excellent! I have really oily lids and my shadows/liners always do that ugly creasing thing within a few hours. But not with UD's Primer Potion! My eye makeup stays the same from minute one to shower time. I don't see why some reviews don't like the packaging. It's fine with me! The primer itself is very soft and is easy to blend. It's not cheap, but I can easily save up the $14.00 (ulta). I can't wait to test this against a hot georgia summer day!
Great product. I have absolutely no complaints. I have slightly oily lids so my eyeshadow almost always creases. It's especially noticeable with more pigmented colours so I tend to not use my more fun shadows. After 10 hours of wearing MAC Trax (which always used to crease on me after 3 hours), I still had perfect shadow. This product isn't cheap, but I'm betting the tube will last me a year of regular use, so I consider it to be great value.
I brought this all the way from Sephora to HK!. I put it to test...it did creased a bit with my autumn color from YSL.
Maybe I dab on too much will adjust and try again n report later.Overall been good much better than FYI benefit!!
Edit: I tried the UD PP again with soem BE glimmer or other jap e/s, it lasted pretty well, I am in luv, I even got a backup :P
This stuff REALLY works!! I live in Ft. Lauderdale so it is either hot or sweltering. I also tend to have oily skin so after a few hours, even the best of eyeshadows would crease somewhat. Today was the ultimate test for the primer potion and it passed w/ flying colors!!! I first went to a baseball game at high noon and say in the sun for 2 hours. We left and then went to the beach, walked around, ate a late lunch, chased my son around the beach. I even got a slight sunburn on my shoulders...my point is, I was out in the sun all day and my eyeshadow (at 8:15pm) looks as if I just put it on!!!!!! Amazing! I have bought this for my friends and my mother. If you don't have this, RUN and get it!
MAC Paints had been doing a mediocre job for me and my moderately oily eyelids. But past the 3 hour mark – forget about it! Creasing like noooooo tomorrow. Now that I have this stuff, MAC Paints are dead to me! I’ve seriously had eyeshadow stay on me for 24 hours thanks to this stuff. I would’ve never guessed from the cheesy packaging (yes Urban Decay really does need to do something about the opaque packaging! Grrr!), but this is what I wish Paints would’ve done for me. My eyeshadows aren’t dampened by this stuff either. They stay true and vibrant from the very moment I apply them and throughout the day. Just make sure you apply a very thin layer and let it set firsthand. Lovvve this stuff like I would my own child. Possibly even more. Just kidding! But it really is THAT fantastic. I would highly recommend this to anyone, even those without the curse of oily eyelids.
I really like this primer. I had been using Benefit's FY...Eye but I thought it was too procey and dried up rather quickly. I then switched to L'Oreal Decrease. I do like that one, but after a few hours I would notice that my shadow was creasing in the inner corner of my eyes. After reading so many raves on this one I decided to pick it up at Sephora. I must say that it really does the job!! There's no need to glob this on, just a thin layer is all that it takes to keep my shadow in place all day long. I did notice that this primer makes my shadow go on a *tiny* bit cakey, but not enough for me to stop using it. I used this primer the other day and in the evening I had to walk to my car during a snow storm and I was amazed that my shadow still looked perfect after I had made it to the car because my face had gotten pretty wet from the snow.
At any rate, I am very pleased by this and I will continue to repurchase it again and again.
I love this primer because it holds my shadow like nothing else! There is no creasing or fading from morning to night, which is a miracle. I have tried many of the other primers and this is far and away the best.
Now the cons: the packaging stinks! The wand is terrible for application so I use a taklon brush. I find that if I use my finger, I end up removing most of the product as I blend. The bottle itself makes it impossible to tell how much is left. I learned a trick from another MUAer: take out the little plastic part in the neck that scrapes the wand. You'll be amazed at how much product gets stuck at the top! I was about to throw mine away thinking it was empty, and it was still 70% full! Another trick is to use this sparingly. To much will make it hard to blend shadows and will create harsh lines.
This is my HG primer. Love it!! Shadows stay on all day until I am ready to take them off.
HG!! Love this primer! HATE the bottle (it's cute but totally unfunctional). Just dab some of this sand-colored tacky primer on your lids from the gloss-like wand, pat a little, let dry, and then apply your e/s. ANY shadow has become creaseless and perfect for me using this primer. Definitely not something that's all hype and no performance. Just make sure you let it dry and blend the edges well or risk getting smudges of PP once it dries. Otherwise, wonderful, totally "can't live without" product! If primers have let you down, this one won't.
Nothing much to say that hasn't been said already.
Keeps e/s perfect. Wand kinda sucks. Cute bottle. Good price.
