I absolutely love this product!!!! I would hate that maybe after an hour my eyeshadow would melt into ny crease but then I heard this product worked so I tried it and it worked wonderfully! My eyeshadow lasts all day whig makes me super happy and not having to worry about my oily eyelids! I would definitely keep purchasing it, even my sister is hooked!

I got this sampke in a swap and so far I'm not happy with this product. Perhaps it was almost gone and I didn't get to try the whole thing - I'm not sure if it was used or dried out?! It's creamy texture like smashboxes other face primers. It iritated my eye lids the whole day and made me wipe with a kleenex because my eyes were watery. I'm stil trying to find an eyeshadow primer that doesn't cost so much as my Estee Lauder primer which is awesome. Got any suggestions? Thanks for reading.

I was really into makeup for a very long time. Used UDPP err-day! Then I had to wake up earlier and earlier and slowly my tolerance for makeup stopped. When I wore it, I would just do a wash e/s and some mascara, and by the end of the day my wash would be gone.
I've recently rediscovered my stash in its trunk in the back of my closet and started wearing e/s again...except 4 hours after application, they would all be sucked into my oily creases! I finally picked up a fresh tube of UDPP and it's like having chocolate for the first time. I can't get enough of this stuff now and I remember why I fell in love with it in the first place! NOTHING BUDGES, 12 HOURS LATER!
Cons: Packaging still sucks. I feel like I can't control how much I squeeze out if I hit an air bubble, and I remember having a hard time getting the last dregs of product.
Hard to blend over this if you don't put down some sort of wash over top. It sticks to pigment, so a nude-y wash is a must before you start laying down your color.
Pros: Goes on easy and dries quickly.
Does the job on my super oily lids.
Overall, it's a love story all over again.

Before i gave in and invested in this primer, my eyeshadows used to crease ALL the time. I can thankfully say that PP says what it says on the tube - my eyeshadows do not budge when this is underneath them. It does also make them appear more vibrant - the colour definitely comes through more, even though the primer on my naked pale skin is virtually undetectable.
With the primer underneath, whether i use cream or powder shadows, my eyeshadow does not budge all day. And for that i am eternally grateful!

This product is amazing! Definitely my HG primer. I'm a chef, so working in hot kitchens all day usually ruins any makeup, but after a 12 hour day, it still looks fantastic! I would reccomend this to anyone.

I feel like I'm preaching to the choir, but I LOVE this stuff! I started using it about 4 years ago and I have never been able to wear eyeshadow without it ever since. I have tried the Too Faced Shadow insurance, but I like the UDPP more because it seems to be a little thicker and more suiting to my eyelids. If I don't wear my UDPP, it feels like my shadow just falls right off. I have NEVER experienced creasing when I wear this stuff. It's totally a "must have" for everyone, in my opinion. I have the professional sized tube of it which was about 30 bucks? I'm not sure, I asked for it as a gift lol but it's been doing me lots of good for about a year and a half now, and I'm not even halfway through the tube yet. It may seem expensive, but I PROMISE it is well worth the money if you wear shadows. I will continue to purchase this for years to come :)

Finally caved and bought one from Nordstrom Rack. This older packaging cost less than the new tube version. I have to say-- it is very good! I notice a big different wearing this primer vs not. My eye shadows last longer and not crease as fast!

I purchased the sample size of this when I purchased my Naked 2 palette, and I have to say that it really didn't do anything for me. My biggest issues are creasing, eyeliner transferring, and having my eyeshadow look "wet" by the end of the day because of the amount of oil on my lids and this eyeshadow primer (the first one I have ever tried) didn't help at all.. I will continue to use it until it runs out just so I feel I didn't waste my money completely, and then I will try out a different brand

This is amazing, I've even fallen asleep with my makeup on a couple of times (whoops) and I wake up to perfect eyes, it doesn't budge! The only thing I would say is that for the price, I was very disappointed when it dried up in the bottle as it wasn't too long after I bought it so I felt I didn't really get my money's worth. Hoping that was just a one off though.

After using Lorac eye primer for over a year, I was very pleased with the texture and the results of the product then I tried UD when Sephora Canada stopped carrying my beloved Lorac eye primer and I was immediately disappointed with Urban Decay's eye primer.
My lids are not extremely oily--just normal, but the greasy texture of the UD compared to the Lorac primer was a big turn off. It is more liquid/gel-like and less cream based so it took more time to absorb. Lorac seemed to help mattify a great deal more for me. I tried the UD on one lid and the Lorac primer on the other. It did not out-performance Lorac in my humble opinion. My shadow and liner remained in tact at the end of the day on both lids. UD primer took longer to absorb and the list of parabens in the ingredient list was a huge turn off also.
The UD primer was returned after one usage. It all comes down to preference perhaps but this product feels oilier and heavier in texture initially and though it proved to work throughout the day, I do not want added chemicals in my cosmetics to cause health problems in the future so I exchanged UD primer for Tarte "clean slate 360 creaseless" eye primer. So far, Tarte primer has a dewy and light texture and is paraban-free. Let's see how it stacks up to the Lorac eye primer in the next month. I may have to replenish my Lorac eye primer fix in my next trip to the US.

Yep. My HG eye primer!! I exchanged the shade EDEN to this. I personally like this one better. The Eden was too yellow toned for my skin but this dries almost clear. Love it! Lasts forever too!

I think I'm on my third tube of this primer by now. I love this one! I tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which I liked but I like this Urban Decay one better. I have oily lids, and this primer definitely helps my eyeshadow stay on a lot longer. If I forget to use this, all my hard work is gone in a few hours! I don't like the tube packaging it's in. I feel like I can't get all the product out if it. I might just cut it open when I'm almost done with it...

This stuff is awesome. A little pricey but you really only need a little bit. I usually use the ELF eye primer for everyday use, and save this for when I really want extra staying power.. this is really good stuff & my colors go on so much darker, smoother.. I'll always keep a tube of this handy!

This works great for my oily lids (just as great as TFSI). I can't imagine wearing eyeshadow without a primer of some kind underneath, and has become a staple. It makes my shadows apply richer, smoother and makes them last and last. I have *zero* creasing issues when I use this primer, and I have slept in my eyeshadow. Great cult classic. The new tube packaging is much more practical.

This has to be the world's #1 primer. Its AMAZINGGG. I have the big professional sized tube and its lasts forever. I use it everyday and it seriously holds up my eye-makeup wonderfully. I also use this underneath my eyes to hold my concealer in place. I never get any creasing when i use this product under my eyes. Amazing!

It works! I will never go back to using other primers now that I've tried this - it works better than anything I've ever tried and keeps my eye makeup on all day.

Only shadow primer I will use ! Had my tube for over a year and with every day use I am still half full! I love it!

I haven't really used a lot of other eye primers because I love this one SO much. It is a little bit pricy at $20, but I had been finding for for only $9 at Nordstrom Rack (I think because they got new packaging and the ones at the Rack were still in the old package, which was fine with me!) Either way, I will eventually repurchase at full price because this stuff is seriously amazing. Without it, my liquid eyeliner and eyeshadow is all over the place at the end of the day, and with it, nothing moves! I would recommend to anyone!

This stuff is amazing. It keeps my makeup on all day no creases whatsoever.

I've compared this lid by lid other brands such as elf or nyx for multiple days in row. Nothing comes close! Lasts all day and over night... amazing! I'm in love. I've tried original and eden. I prefer original just because I feel the color stays more true and it's much lighter than eden. Eden has more coverage and brightens the eyelid. Both work amazing though, It's just personal preferance. Eden works well for covering dark under eye circles too. ;)
