Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I’m finally getting around to reviewing my Beautybay order from over a month ago. One of the products I purchased during the Black Friday sales was the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Before purchasing this primer, I have been using MAC paint pot in Painterly which worked really well for me but as a blogger we constantly love trying new products.

According to Urban Decay “This is it – THE most legendary primer in the beauty industry. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is coveted by makeup artists and makeup junkies alike because it guarantees more vibrant eyeshadow that lasts for 24 hours and NEVER CREASES! Once you experience its powers (plus how smoothly it glides on – an added bonus) you’ll never want to live without it”. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it??
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion_beauty and things The primer comes in a squeezable tube, so you are able to control how much you apply and in my opinion is much more hygienic. The older packaging had an application wand which means you had to apply directly to the eyelids.

What I like about the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

  • The packaging is mega cute.
  • A little product goes a long way.
  • Great price.
  • My eyeshadow lasts the whole day in normal weather conditions. In 30+ degree days, creases started after a few hours for me.
  • I got the original formula which dries transparent and won’t affect your eyeshadow colour.

The original primer is so amazing that I’m planning on purchasing the other primers in Eden, Greed and Sin. The MAC paint pots work really well on me but I guess if I had to pick between the two, I would pick UD primer. Why? Because I feel like it is lighter on my eyelids compared to the paint pots.

Have you tried Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion? What did you think?

I purchased this myself.

    I wouldn’t say you *had* to apply directly on the eyelid. I can imagine quite a few people put it on the back of their sanitized hand and then applied it with their fingers. I’ve tried it… first bottle, I hated. Then I got a second one in a swap and it’s okay. I like it although it still sometimes creases on me. I still prefer Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

    Oh wow, that is completely true – that makeup artists and junkies lust after this product! Ah, even bloggers that haven’t had a chance at this – like me – lust after it! >W<
    Ah, it sounds amazing. Thank you for the review – I hope I'll be able to get my hands on it one day! ^^

    I also got this from Beautybay during a sale they had, but I’ve yet to actually try it out! I know, bad blogger, right? :P
    After reading your review though, I’m going home to try it right away! I always thought it was hyped up a little bit, but now I’m anxious to give it a go!

    I would love to try the UD eyeshadow primer but it is quite pricey :( At the moment I am using a Revlon eye primer which I got for free (yay!) and since I have no other eye primers to compare it to, I’m not really sure how well it performs! It does make a nice base for my eye makeup, and it actually helps my eyeliner glide on :)

    This is my HG primer, so I’m glad it works well for you! Must say I have all four shades and love them all, though my favourites will be sin or the original. I do miss the doe foot applicator, I feel like it was a better application method. ;)

    I have heard so many great things about this primer…and I’ve finally ordered it because of Urban Decay’s friends and family sale! Glad to see another great review right after my order! ;)
