Makes any shadow creaseproof, long-lasting and almost smudgeproof. I highly recommend it.

It can be applied on its own for some shine or beneath eyeshadow. Makes it easier for eyeshadow to be applied (though not perfect, I still have to be a bit careful). Is gentle and didn't have any problems with it so far.

This eye prime is crap. It is very dry and difficult to apply.

The Urban Decay Primer Potion isn't available where I live and I desperately wanted an eyelid primer so I got myself this baby. And I love it.
APPLICATION: It comes in a tiiiny little pot, but don't be fooled by the size because you only need a light layer of this on your lid and you're good to go. I dip my finger into the pot once and get enough product to cover my lid and brow bone. After blending this in, I can layer as many shadows as I want over it and get great results.
QUALITY: This product makes eye shades so many times more vivid and long-lasting than they are without it. Colors look as bright on the lid as they do in their pans, if not brighter. I've worn this on multiple occasions and it lasts for 8+ hours, in my experience. It is also water-resistant! I splashed/rubbed/ran water over it and it didn't budge. Only when I scrubbed with soap did it actually come off. It'll last you forever, seriously. I've had mine for a little under a year now and the product looks barely used.
SMELL & CONSISTENCY: It has a hard creamy consistency. The color is a nude gold color with slight iridescence but worry not, NO sparkles or glitter shows on your lid. The product doesn't show through eye shades at all, either. It has a slight cologne-ish smell, like men's perfume. I don't mind that, though.

To sum it up -
-makes eye shadow as bright as can be
-makes eye shadow last 8+ hours
-very small amount needed
-pot lasts exceptionally long
-not too expensive

-some people may not like the men's cologne smell
-stupid pot packaging (Use a spatula/toothpick/back of a spoon to get product out, I'd say)

All in all, it really is a great product, minus the packaging. When and if I run out of mine, I'll definitely get another.

I love this base.It helps my eyeshadows last longer and prevents them from creasing.The only thing that I do not like is the smell.

I love this, and this will last ALL day :) I get very oily on my lids, and this really helps me with my eyeshadow creasing. I use this everyday, and it works great.
Ive seen some reviews complaining about the scent. Really? There is rarely a smell at all, and you have to stick your nose into it to even notice it! So overall, this product is great, and i recommend it to everyone of my friends. Will,and do buy it over and over again :)

I don't wear strong colors much, so I can't tell how much it brings up the color, but it helps the eyeshadow stay put whole day long. Even the worst drugstore brand will last all day with this little gem:) Although a squeeze tube would be probably better packaging option...

I really hate being a party pooper but I found this didn't work at all! I've been using UD Primer Potion for about a year but although I found it great I did have a few issues with it: hard to blend eyeshadows over it, bad packaging and difficult to find here in Ireland. Art Deco is sold closer to home here and packaging seemed good (little plastic jar with a screw top lid) and I was hoping it would be easier to blend several eyeshadows over this base.

Price: Contrary to a reviewer below from Greece, I had to pay 11 euros for it which works out about the same as UDPP here.

Availability: Found it in a town near me while Urban Decay can only be found in bigger cities or online.

Overall impression: It went on very smoothly and sheer and eyeshadows blended perfectly over this. I was so happy, I thought I'd found the perfect base! After about an hour I noticed my eyeshadow was disappearing just over my top eyelashes and another hour after that all my eyeshadow had migrated to my crease, not a good look. Since then I've experimented with more primer, less primer, left it to dry longer on the eyelid or while still damp. Nothing works for me so I'm forced to realise that I've yet again made a bad purchase and I'm stuck with a 99 % full jar which I can't use...
