I had such high expecations about this primer. Seemingly everyone here on makeupalley, beautybloggers and gurus on YT LOVE this primer, and I can't for the life of me understand why. This stuff creases on me withing a couple of hours! It's allmost like this makes my eyeshadows crease faster than without a primer! I have tried every single way of applying it, I tried applying a little, a lot, applying eyeshadow while it's still wet, and when it has dried down completely. Nothing works. I can't understand why people swear to this stuff, on me it just makes things worse. Will most certainly not buy again.

After reading insane amounts of reviews online about this primer, I decided to pick this one up after I ran out of my trusty HG primer UDPP (wand version). Sadly, I was very dissapointed. When I first opened the tube, the substance that came out was a watery, oily brown mess. Nothing like the way the product is supposed to be. Suspecting i might have bought an old tube maybe? Anyhow, this stuff creases on my within a few hours, does not prolong the wear of eyeshadow on my eyes at all. I have tried applying a lot of it, and just a tiny bit, blending with a brush and with fingers, applying eyeshadow straight away and after it has hade time to dry down - and nothing helps. It just sucks.

I've tried many different eye primers, and this is the only thing that really keeps my eyeshadow on all day! This was the first primer I ever tried, and it was love with first application. When the product ran out, Urban Decay had released the new and "improved" version in the squeeze tube, and with that also discontinued the original one with the wand. I then bought the new version, and it was total crap on my eyes. I then tried the primers from Nars, Artdeco, Too faced and MUFE, and all of them crease on me! I have no idea why (I suspect the TFSI to be faulty, seeing as there was some sort of watery substance coming out when I first opened it - not the way it is supposed to be), the only one that does a less then terrible job is the MUFE one, but it still can't compare to the original UDPP. This stuff is my HG eye primer, and I ended up tracking this one down again despite of all the other primers in my posession. It keeps my eyeshadow on from early morning until I go to bed, and it saying something! I absolutely love this stuff!
