Had this for more than 2 years and picked it up by accident - I had meant to get regular UDPP but picked this up instead.
I have oily lids and this primer performed poorly on preventing my eye makeup from creasing. Within 2-3 hours, it'd begin creasing up. Also if you are like me and can only afford to have one eye primer on hand because of money, this is obviously not a does-it-all primer because it the shimmer will still show up underneath your matte shadows, its original purpose was for equally shimmery shadows. Doesn't work well on its own either if I only wanted a simple neutral wash of color because the champagne color really sheers out once blended onto my lid and just leaves it sparkly.
Somehow, the only time it performed better than usual was when my skin and eyelids were dry. Weird. Either way, won't repurchase.

I bought this primer about a year ago, mostly because (a) I like UD's Primer Potion for the way it makes eye shadows last and last and look perfect all day and (b) it's in the colour Sin and I like Sin Eyeshadow because it's very close to MAC's Grand Entrance, which was LE. So I bought this, used it once or twice and then sort of put it aside and forgot about it til recently. I've come to love it all over again....
This is very much like MAC's Bare Study Paint Pot except I find it more blendable. Also, my Bare Study dried out. Now, it was just a sample but I think the jar they took it from was already drying out because even when I first got it, it was very hard to blend smoothly....the end result was very cakey and harsh looking. Not so with Sin Primer Potion. It blends beautifully. It is terrific as an eye shadow in its own right, imparting a beautiful brightness and glow to my lids and acting as a brilliant "backdrop" for whatever eyeliner and mascara I might use. And as a shadow base - especially under shimmering shadows - it is just excellent as well. Some disappointing shadows, like MAC Tempting, just come to life layered over SIN as a primer/base. Like the original, it makes shadows remain fresh looking and crease free through just about anything and it imparts a subtle glow under most shadows if you use it as a base. Also, there seems to be an amazing amount of product in the tube (the stupid "genie's bottle" shape) and I have the feeling that, unlike with the original, there won't be quite so many problems getting every last bit of product out of this one because of the texture of the product.

I prefer MAC Bare Study Paint Pot. I don't think it keeps shadows looking as pigmented throughout the day as the MAC PP and the color of it is too shimmery and too pink for my taste. Plus, the MAC PP is less expensive if I'm not mistaken. One MAC PP can last me 9 months if used everyday and I feel like I would go through this product in 3 months. Plus the cap to my UDPP tube doesn't screw all the way. Is this a bad product? No. Do I think there are better options? Yes.

I do like this primer. I has a champagne pink shimmer to it and it does double duty for me as a subtle highlighter under my eyebrow. It does not last all day on my oily eyelids, but it definitely extends my eye shadow wear quite a bit. It is a cute, but wasteful bottle. I don't even want to know how much product is still in there that you cannot get out with the applicator. I will search for a cheaper alternative. It just is too much money for such a little bottle.

I find this to be a higher pigmented version of MACs Bare Study, which I use everyday. BS has more of a highlight factor, while I think UDPP in Sin was too over-bearing for day-wear.

I got this last summer and still have some of it left. it's a great primer for non-matte shades
Price: $20 USD so not gonna repurchase in BC
Pkg: a typical concealer bottle cept doesn't let much product out
Texture: creamy, blends well long as u don't apply a thick layer
Colour: shimmery champagne paler than my skintone
It really prevents powder shadows from creasing&brightens the shadow! My bronzy gold eyeshadow (my everyday colour) looks so vibrant with this underneath when I take the extra step for special occasions. Def rec to everyone. I'm so buying the new squeeze tube the next time I go to the States

This stuff creases like crazy and is oily and thin and does NOT make shadows more vibrant even though sin itself is a pretty color and i like it more then greed. Also, the genie tube packaging sucks and waste half or more of the product inside. TFSI and MAC paint pots are way better and make eye shadow colors more vibrant. For a more detailed review of this product please refer to my UDPP-original review.

I have been a fan of UDPP since I first laid my grubby little paws on the unusual shaped tube... So when Sin came out I was among the first to run to the shops to buy my own tube of shimmery goodness...
But oh, how wrong was I? It looks lovely when it first goes on and then creases hideously within a couple of hours! It didn't matter how little or how much I put on, no matter if I used eyeshadow on top or not - it creased.
Urban Decay - how could you make such a useless eyeshadow primer potion? I am so disappointed :(
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and I definately won't be purchasing it again - my tube was still almost completely full and it went in the bin without a second thought.

I received a mini with my Summer of Love ES palette, and I think the product itself is fantastic. I love the shade, it doesn't crease (as I've read happens with other people), and I appreciate how it enhances satins and frosts. My only beef with it is the packaging. It's cute, sure, but it's not very functional. Just how much product do you wind up throwing away because your wand isn't touching anything anymore? I shudder to think. Much as I love the product, I probably won't buy because of the packaging.

The color of this primer is nice.
It's a shimmery-champaign color that could even be worn alone on the lid with no eyeshadows.
However, this thing creased on my like crazy.
I would apply it (sheerly), I don't like building it up, then I would come after 4-5 hours and the eyeshadows on my eyes would be completely wiped off and gather in the crease of my eye.
The original primer potion worked on me, this didn't.

I love Sin! (not sinning, but the Primer Potion.) It's a wonderful light shimmery champagne/barely there pink color on it's own, Makes shadows stick like glue all day long! Also, I feel like it enhances my shimmery shadows. Easy to apply and makes my shadows blend like a dream. Two thumbs up from me. Oh, also, I don't mind the packaging. It might not be the most convenient in the world, but it's not the least, either. Plus it looks cute in your makeup bag. Buy it. You'll like it.

- pretty color
- can be built up
- dries fast
- powder e/s doesn't last on top, creases w/in 4hrs
- packaging. still the ridiculous genie bottle
Overall rating: 3
Packaging: 2. Hard to get all the products out w/out cutting the tube
The color of this primer potion is just like the UD shadow in sin. It's this medium pinky golden champagne color. It's very very pretty, and can be applied as sheer or as opaque as you want. This can be used alone on days where you just want to look a little more polished than the bare naked lids, or it can be used under similar toned e/s to bring out the color and shimmer. This was personally a dud for me because as a primer potion, this did not measure up to the original UDPP. The texture of UDPP sin is more slippery, and my e/s creased after only 4 hrs of wear compared to 10+ hrs of the original.
It didn't work for me as a shadow base/primer. But I will use it up as a cream shadow. It's very pretty alone, and it doesn't crease that way. Will not repurchase though.

I love sparkles, so this product is perfect! It makes my sparkly eyeshadow stand out. I even like using Sin by itself, with just eyeliner and mascara. I will definitely repurchase!

Good to use as a primer/eyeshadow base when going out at night. Helps keep makeup on and looks great! Only tiny amounts of potion is needed to get a lot of shimmer. Packaging, as we all know, could be better to maximize the amount of product used.

what in the world was UD thinking with this one? the primer potion, sin, is a metallic champagne colour that is apparently meant to make your shadows more shimmery (which is something UD shadows need LESS of, considering what frosty bombs they are) - i think this is the worst. it's so weird looking & to me, dries much faster than the regular primer does, meaning i have to work quick with application & blending. i also really, really hate the packaging with the primers because they are such a rip off. seriously. next time you think you've finished your UDPP, cut it in half with a knife & you will see LOADS of product caked to the inside of it. thanks, UD. for letting me waste my money.

Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Sin is pretty and sparkly!! I tried it on at my local Sephora and bought it instantly!! It's a shiny champagne look that works really well. I spread it all over my lid and brow area. It's so strong that it could also act as a eyeshadow! This primer doesn't crease and will be a definite buy again. Plus, the bottle is so cute!! I will also be thinking of buying the Original or Eden version:)

I am a devotee of the original Primer Potion, it keeps my eyeshadow on all day no matter how hot it is in our sweaty office. After I had finished my tube I went to buy another as usual, and spotted this Sin version. Sin is easily my favourite eyeshadow from UD so I snapped this up straight away. First of all, I wish they would get the squeezy 'pro' tube design and make it universal, packaging sucks. That aside, I was instantly happy with my purchase, as on the basis of my results with the original I knew this would work.
Well that's what I thought. For some reason, and who knows how, this doesn't keep my eyeshadow on all day. About 4 hours into the day my lids were oily and my shadow was creased as if I hadn't even used primer. I was so surprised that this was so sucky, I might have been better just using a thin layer of colourstay as primer! On its own, no shadow, it looked really natural, pretty and gave me that polished look. However it didn't last either. Maybe my lids are just too oily for this, but I wouldn't buy again just for the pretty look it gives for a few hours. Personally I would rather buy a bottle of regular UDPP and a single Sin eyeshadow. Very disapointed, would not buy again or reccomend.

I am so sorry to say this, but I HATED this product. It is SO shimmery and glittery! Fallout was EVERYWHERE on my face, and I NEVER use shimmery eye shadow.I had first heard about this, I rushed to Sephora, swabbed a bit on the back on my hand, thought it had an amazing color and then bought it! I really wish I hadn't! It is so much product, and it starts smelling funny very quickly. I'm going to try Palladio's primer and see how that goes. :( I wish I could get my money back!

This is the first eye primer I've tried, I liked the colour and evened out my dark eyes but sadly it creeses within about 3-4 hours which is annoying as its a primer and its meant to stay on even without eye shadow. I would not recommend for oily skin types like me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Other Eyes: Blue
I love this mainly for the color - it's an awesome champagne color that looks great on my eyes. Works great as a base to prevent creasing, just like the original UDPP. But, adds a nice hint of color and shimmer. One lippie off for the packaging - I wish it came in a normal tube like too faced shadow insurance.
