I've tried all of the UD Primer Potions and they all are pretty nice. My favorite is the original, but this one is a close second.

It's a very opaque matte yellow-y tan color. I like it because it hides the redness on my eyelids. It has a very dry finish, though. I have oily eyelids, so for me this works perfectly. If you have dry skin this stuff may not work for you.

The finish is not near as tacky as the original. Sometimes this is a good thing. It makes the shadows very pigmented. It helps the eyeshadows with very little color payoff reach their full potential. I've used shadows that look almost sheer with the original primer potion, and with Eden they look vibrant and beautiful. It is a little harder to get an even application on the eyelid, though. Because of the dryness of the primer, eyeshadows don't glide on as easily and they are more difficult to blend out.

As with all the UD Primers I've tried, my eyeshadows lasted all day. No disappointments there.

This is definitely a great primer. I love using it when I want my shadows to really pop. However, I took off a lippy because nothing tops the original primer potion. That one will always be my fav.

Well I thought the UD primer in original was the worst primer I had ever used but I was wrong. It's this one. It's SUPER chalky and it made the skin right above my eyelid flake. And the worst part is my shadow creased really bad after only 2 hours. So glad I got this as a sample from Sephora and didn't pay for it. I would be really mad at myself if I had wasted $20 on this piece of junk primer. I gave it 2 lippies ONLY because I think the packaging is really pretty.

I bought this because everyone raved about UD's eye primers, and I didn't think the Original color would work. It seemed so blah. Later I realized it was probably the best choice. I thought Eden would be a better base for me. I wanted Sin but it was so shimmery and I was going for a more natural look when I bought this. Eden doesn't irritate sensitive eyelid skin, which some primers do, so that's a definite plus. However, it's very thick and yellow and interferes with the color of the powder shadows I apply on top.

Naturally, after I bought this huge tube of Eden, Urban Decay came out with Minor Sin, which was a more subtle version of Sin with less coverage and less shimmer. If only I had waited.

If I loved this product, I'd be excited that it comes in such a big tube, but since it's just okay, I keep wishing it were used up so I'd have an excuse to buy Minor Sin instead.

I haven't had the best luck choosing products from this line, but I have a few things on my wish list. They are: Minor Sin eye primer, the lovely Powder Foundation in Fair Neutral, some of the "moonstone" eyeshadows, and two of the nude lipsticks (Naked 2 and Native).

Will not purchase Eden again. I think the Original primer is better than this.

I actually purchased this on accident. It's definitely not as good as the original. It feel like it's less tacky which I like since i tend to get brighter colors. It works pretty much like the original in terms of creasing. just like with the original you only need a little bit. My biggest problem with this is that it spoiled on me super fast. I didn't keep it in any hot places just my room which I keep cool anyways. I wasn't even half way through the tube when I noticed it had an awful rancid scent. I had to throw it away which is awful because that stuff isn't cheap. It wasn't bad but even if it was the perfect eye primer whats the point if I'm not going to get to use it up.

I love this product! It gives me eyeshadow kind of a matted look after applying and it lasts ALL day. I even apply some under my eyes and nothing smears or is sweated away! I bought mine at Ulta for $20 and the packaging was actually in a tube form, not like the picture posted above but that doesn't bother me. I think the price is responsible only becuz a little goes a long way! you definitely don't have to use an over abundance of product on your eye lids. I received a small sample size that came in the packaging that I bought and I actually used the sample for MONTHS before I started using the tube. Love it! Would definitely recommend!

I had bought an original Naked Eyeshadow palette and i had received a sample of the four eyeshadow primers. I had used the Original and Sin with no problem. Then i tried the Eden one and i loved it. Now after about a week straight using it, and removing it before bed, I've had an allergic reaction to it. My eyes are red, dry, itchy, and patchy. I have not used the primer since and I won't advise anyone to use it with sensitive skin. Very disappointed because i really liked it. My eyes have been this dry itchy flaky patch for quiet some time, im not sure when they will return to normal again but im not wearing any makeup until it clears up and im washing my face with the normal face wash.

Ok most important thing is that I don't mind this product. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. That's not really enough to make me buy it again but perhaps not enough to make me bin it either.
It does the job for me. It works. Does what it is meant to do. It just doesn't do it as well as it could.
Like other people have mentioned sometimes oil comes out and no product, sometimes you have too much product. It is opaque (the one I am using anyway) I usually put it on and blend it in with my foundation, but personally I'm not keen on how it sits on my skin. I couldn't say exactly why- perhaps it is just because I know that there's other products which are much better on the market.

However I used Mac primer for years and I am even going off that as well now. I did however use a clarins one recently (instant light eye perfecting base) and it was excellent.

Anyway I wouldn't rate this as terrible, I also wouldn't rate it as good. It's decent enough, I have friends that like it and I have friends who dislike it.

It is in the 'well since I have it I might as well use it' category..

I love this stuff! I but a bit under my eyes before concealer and it makes my concealer last all day without being cakey. I have oily eyelids but with this it makes them not oily and makes my eyeshadow last all day

Hate this!! I did not expect this to be as opaque as it is..
I guess this would be great for those with really pigmented lids and / or oily lids, but if you have dry skin then stay away from this. Also, a little goes a long way. Too much will cake up and will be hard to even out on your lid.

It does a good job covering up any pigmentation on your lid, but like I said before, too much can be bad. Holds up e/s really nicely, but I honestly don't see how this surpasses the Original one.

I like the idea of this primer, with the slight colour that it has. I thought it would be great for evening out my eyelids a little.
I can't say how this would be on someone who doesn's have dry skin, but on me it was, unfortunately, terrible. It clings to dry patches on my eyes a lot, and it is just very drying. It doesnt look good AT ALL.
The priming part of it is fine tho. I don't have any problems with creasing with this one, and my stadows stay on during the day, also with my hooded eyes. But iv'e tried cheaper primers that did the same for me. Not worth the money.
I am so bummed that i got the big one, and i don't know what to do with it..
