Ohhhh, i so hate to burst anyones bubble here, but i really don't like this at all, (on me), and i sooo wanted to seeing i love Artdeco and am a huge fan. I used it well over 10 times to make sure, with a moisturised eye lid, without, the works. It just balls up on my eye lid and gets splothchy and i can't blend it, causing my eyeshadow to go on soooooooo creasy and wrinkly. I tried on one eye Urban Decay's PP and on the other Artdeco, and there was a huge difference, UD glided on and so did my e/s afterwards, but not the case with Artdeco. Such a shame seeing UD is not available here and i keep having to order it online, whereas Artdeco is is available here and soooo dirt cheap. :(

This product rocks! It comes in a small black plastic pot, the consistency is creamy (not as liquid as the Urban Decay Potion Primer) and the price is very convenient. Since I have Asian eyes, I decided to pay the horrendous price for Urban Decay just to find out that the product is not very good (for me at least). I'll stick to ArtDeco from now on.

Ok, so i found my first and only eye base! it's kind of cheap ($10 in Portugal, and like others reviews, my eye shadow stays put as long as i need it to be, meaning all day long, w/ no creasing at all and even enhancing e/s colors. I bought it by chance, had never heard about it, but as it was so cheap, decided to take a chance: thank God i did! Since then i raok one, and convinced 2 of my co-workers to get it too. Get it if you have the chance!

This stuff is absolutely amazing. My eyeshadow lasts all day long with no creasing at all! I put on my makeup at 7am and by 10pm when I finally come home it is still on, with no creasing. Fading may happen around 7pm but it is very minimal. Before I used MAC paints but I find this to be a far superior product and a lot cheaper too.
I bought it off a European site for 5.10 Pounds sterling as it is hard to find outside of europe.
Product comes in a small container. I apply mine with a small concealer brush to the whole eye area but you can use your fingers too. You only need a SMALL amount (using too much will cause the eyeshadow to apply wrinkly). The product has a slight shimmer to it which is nice and doesn't distort the eyeshadow colour. It makes your eyeshadow more vibrant too. This allows you to use cheaper drugstore eyeshadows too which are known for fading (not all d/s e/s has this problem) and they will last all day.
Will definetly repurchase when I run out.
Edit 7/7/07: I have repurcashed and bought backups. Can't get enough of this product. Oh, and I live in Israel so my eyeshadow lasts in the 33+ humid summers. A few weeks ago it was 47 degrees (118 fahrenheit) and my face was MELTING but my eyeshadow was still great! My eyeshadow stays on without creasing and is very vibrant.

It works, no doubt about it - it's one of the best primers out there and dirt cheap considering. Alas, it smells very soapy and dries out way too fast - which actually means you have to throw it out before the packaging becomes a problem :D I've come to prefer MAC's P+P.

Wow, I really like this stuff. A wonderful MUAer sent this to me as a RAOK. I have never tried UDPP, but I am guessing that the quality of this comes close. No creasing on me whatsoever for about 8-10 hours. Will definatley purchase again if I run out and if I come across it.

This primer has no comparison, it is just the best I have used it for about 8 years will never change to a different brand. BTW it is the only artdeco product I really like.

Not that I've tried many eyeshadow bases, but this works really well on me. I only tried Yves Rocher and this one is much better. My eyeshadow lasts all day with this base under it!
It comes in a small plastic container which should last you a long time since only a very thin layer is needed.

I feel badly about ruining this product's perfect score but it just didn't work for me. I was excited to try this because I have extremely oily lids and hadn't been able to get my hands on the famous UD Primer Potion. It's not available in the US but it's very reasonably priced. Well, it works OK but is certainly nothing to write home about. My e/s does stay on longer with this then with other things i've tried (Almay cream e/s, Lumene e/s base) but I see creasing within 4 hours. This is absolutely an improvement to not using anything, and I bet this is great for people who have only mildly oily lids, but if e/s just WON'T last on you, UD PP is the only way to go. I finally got it 3 days ago and it is nothing short of a miracle. E/s stays on perfectly on my super oily lids for at least 10 hours (or until I go to bed). I highly recommend going for that if you really need oil control. Even if it's out of stock, it's worth the wait!

This is my HG! I can't believe that after a 10-hour day my eyeshadow hasn't creased one bit! I previously tried Lumene but Lumene creased after 5-6 hours.
Artdeco comes in this small round pot, it's easy to apply and has a strong scent. I can't decide if I like or dislike the scent but it doesn't linger. The price of this is very good - 6 euros and it contains 5 ml of product. Definitely try this one!

Very few makeup products still leave me speechless, and this is one of them. My eyelids have never been oily, but I like to wear an eyeshadow primer to tone down the sickly purplish cast before applying color. This product serves the purpose well and does what it claims: it looks natural, feels creamy, isnít drying, doesnít crease. It keeps color in place, and even the most terrible, most shimmery, most neglected eyeshadows in my collection have suddenly become wearable and even beautiful. Yes, the scent annoys me to no end, but I got this little pot for about Ä 6, so itís hardly an issue. On me, the product only works under powder eyeshadows, not cream formulations. And youíll want to keep the lid closed tightly.

I wholeheartedly agree with the previous review; this product is fantastic.
It's my first eye shadow primer and since I'm so happy with it and it's quite cheap I don't think I'll go looking for a different one anytime soon.
I usually apply it on the lid, wait till it's dry (it takes a few minutes) and then apply eyeshadow on it. I don't use any foundation on powder on the lid btw.

In my quest to find the best e/s base ever, I found it!!! This is IT. It is hard to find in the USA (this is made by the German company Artdeco), you have to order from sites in Europe, but it is totally worthy. It is not expensive either, you will pay around 12,00 dollars. Anyway, this is a neutral base with a slight iridescence. It has this perfume but it fades away quickly and it is in fact pleasant. This thing makes any e/s 3 times brighter!!! (Take a look at my pictures) It *grabs* the pigments like glue, and you won't crease even if you don't shower for 2 days!! :D In fact, to remove your shadow when you use this product, you will have to use a good makeup remover because soap and water will leave residues. This is all I had dreamed in terms of THE perfect e/s base!!!
