I never tried the Urban decay eye shadow primer potion before, and because there were so many good reviews, I was so excited in buying my very own. I didn't buy the original one, but the shimmery one because most of my eye shadows are matte and some glitter wouldn't hurt. BIG MISTAKE. Lets just say, it DIDN'T WORK AT ALL FOR ME!!! When I first tried it, I thought it was a joke...literally. Is this the thing everyone crazes about? I mean, I put primer on one of my eye lid and not the other. Then I applied makeup for both sides. Of course the glitter made it look nice, but 15 min later, the makeup BOTH were gone. The one with the primer didn't stay at ALL!!!! Then I thought maybe I didn't put enough, so a few days later, I put more on one lid and again I applied makeup on. I checked two hours later and guess what? THE EYE LID WITHOUT THE PRIMER HAD EYE SHADOW LEFT AND THE EYE LID WITH THE PRIMER DIDN'T HAVE EYE SHADOW ON!!!!!!!!!!
This is a joke right? Maybe the original one was better. I REALLY REALLY regret getting this. IT SUCKS PERIOD. Doesn't hold the eye shadow at all and it creases too. Please please please, DO NOT BUY THIS, unless you want to throw away 18 bucks!!!

I like this a lot. I'm not usually a shimmery, glittery kind of gal. This does have some shimmer in it, but I think it's mild.
I love the color. It helps to keep my eyeshadow in place.
I think I actually like it better than the original UD primer.

The original primer potion wasn't in stock which i was hoping to get so the sales assistant recommended this. I've never used primer potion before so i didn't know what to expect aside from all the rave reviews. This colour even looks gorgeous on it's own without any eyeshadow. But when i wear my MAC satin taupe and sable and bough grey over this it lasts all day even if i rub my eyes and it looks amazing. Will definitely buy again :)

I was surprised to find that this had rubbed right off part of my eylid and creased quite badly by the end of the day, which never happened to me with the original. The shimmer is quite nice, but I think it only works well with eyeshadows that are a similar shade.
Won't buy again - definitely prefer the original version.

yes, the packaging sucks for this product, but you cant deny that sin is gorgeous!!! not only does it keep my eyeshadow from creasing/fading ALL DAY, but it adds a bit of sheen to whatever shadow i wear, which makes it "pop" in a subtle way that is just really pretty. sometimes i wear it alone with no shadow for a low maintenance, slightly shimmery eye, and i love that look too!

I'm kinda obsessed with Urban Decay now because of this product. Just bought this for the first time a couple of months ago and I've been using it pretty much everyday. Love this! It keeps my shadows in place all day with no creasing on my very oily lids. Sometimes I use it alone as cream shadow, as I love the light natural color all on it's own as well. I haven't tried the original formula. The packaging is absolutely adorable, although I can see that I'll eventually have some trouble getting all of the product out of the container. Overall, excellent product!

What was I thinking? I should have known better and should have bought the original formula -- this is just way too glittery for me. I had hopes of it just adding a gleam to my eye area, giving me that "just rested" look, but it's just too glittery, even underneath shadow. However, I'm giving it five lippies in the overall rating because it does a great job of keeping my shadow looking fresh and keeping it from creasing. I normally use MAC Painterly Paint Pot. I don't think the UD does a better job, but it's another great eye primer option. This is one of those products that works great but just isn't what I was hoping for. Next time, I'll get the original formula. Another plus about this product for me is that I never use the applicator to apply it -- I pull the applicator far enough out of the tube to pick up product off the shaft with a brush and apply it that way. I bought the small size, but it will last forever because it doesn't take much product to get the job done.

I got a sample size of this from a seller. I haven't tried the original formula or the eden one yet so this is my first primer potion. I do like it a lot, much better than MAC's soft ochre which I have always been using as my eye primer. Sin is easier to apply than soft ochre because the texture is more liquidy and easier to blend and doesn't tug at my eyelids. The lasting power of sin is also better than soft ochre, my eyeshadow and eyeliner didn't crease at all after 12 hours of wear wheras soft ochre will start creasing after 10 hours of wear. I also like that it is a champagne color thus providing a soft glow to my eyeshadows that is not overpowering or shimmery.
5 stars for this product! Will purchase the full size once I'm done with the sample.

UD Sin is an excellent eyeshadow primer. It's formula works just as well as the original but has a gorgeous gold shimmer to it. It's the perfect primer for a dressed up look, but I don't use it on a day-to-day basis. Overall, I highly recommend it & will repurchase it when mine runs out.

I have the original formula and the Eden formula and I love them both. this one does have the same lasting power as the other two but is way too shimmery for my preference. I will not buy this again.
