Let me preface this negative review by saying that I know UDPP is holy grail stuff for most make up junkies. It was, briefly, for me too. I purchased it because it GRABS eyeshadow, intensifies the colour and minimises fallout; I do not have problems with creasing, as my lids are very dry. Had I read the list of ingredients, it might have occurred to me that talc is a horrendous thing to put on dry facial skin, but I didnít read the list. Within a few weeks I had developed weepy, painful, scaly skin on both eyelids. Iím talking flare-ups for months and months, even after I stopped wearing eye makeup at all because it hurt and burned so much. I didnít make the connection to UDPP, because Iíve never been allergic to a cosmetic before (and I have used a lot of cosmetics). But when I did my research, it made perfect sense. This is a wonderful product Ė for girls with oily eyelids. If you have dry, sensitive skin and just need a colour base, for the sake of your health please use a Creaseless Cream, a Paint Pot or even Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which I have used with no problems despite the near-identical ingredient list to UDPP. (But, I use TFSI only occasionally, for special events. I had been using UDPP everyday.) Though I have sensitive skin, especially around my eyes, it's not that sensitive; I have never been allergic to any makeup before, nor have I ever had eczema or redness. I truly believe that the drying qualities of UDPP do untold damage to already-dry eyes. I can only imagine the wrinkles that might be caused by a product that parches the eye area, but thatís another tangent. Please, just use this with caution if youíre dry & sensitive like me.
