    I’m in love with urban decay products! Although their eyeshadows are so bendable and last all day, if you apply this primer before the eyeshadow, not only they will last all day long but the colors will look more bright and more clean If I can say!! I got a sample after purchasing many products from urban decay and then repurchased this primer because it is worth every penny!

    It’s hard to blend because of its texture that’s really thick. But I makes the eyeshadow blend easily. I really don’t know I have a mixed feelig about it

    I got a sample at UD opening, many makeup gurus swear by this eye primer, but it didn’t work for me. First, it is hard to blend it on the lids and as I wear eye contact lenses, they start to move because I have to rub pretty hard to get it blended. Second, throughout the day I noticed that it chaps on the crease and the eyeshadows collect in this area. Third downside, that you have to consider the amount you’re using, a small amount will not be enough and a larger amount will be too much. However I don’t like to waste products, I repurposed it as I discovered that it works beautifully to fill the lines on my forehead and around the mouth area. If this product was marketed to fill the fine lines on the face it would be way more efficient. So if you’re unsatisfied with the payoff of this potion, try it on the lines as a primer and it will help your foundation to hold longer and without creasing.

    Is UD’s primer potion worth the hype?

    “Honestly when it comes to priming, i guess the main goal is for the eye shadow to last longer, and UD’a primer potion does that indeed! But what made me dislike this product is how thick it applies. Even with a minimal amount on your lid, it will seem so caky and chap up your lid so the eye shadow will not seem as neatly blended as it does without it. I Love UD but i wont be buying this primer again!”

    “This eyeshadow primer potion from Urban Decay is simply amazing. Put three little drops of this potion on your eyelid and your eyeshadow will pop in color even more and stay in place for hours and hours. Be careful not to put a lot of eyeshadow, you will find a hard time blending/removing the excess because of the primer’s efficiency.”

OUR EDITORIAL REVIEW

Packaging:

This primer has a cute packaging: it comes in a small tube which can easily fit in your makeup bag and the colors depend on the shade of the primer. This primer used to be a squeezable tube. However, Urban Decay recreated it with an applicator that comes in the shape of a wand. The wand is not very practical, so you can just remove it and squeeze the tube gently to have some product.

Colors:

This primer comes in six different shades: Sin, Freebase, Caffeine, Minor Sin, Original and Eden. Each is used depending on the type of look that you want to have.

  • Sin: Best used if you want to apply shimmery colors, since it already has some glitter in it. Suitable for a night look.
  • Freebase: Best used if you want a simple look, since it is sort of transparent.
  • Caffeine: Best used if you want to apply earth stone colors, since it is contains brown pigments.
  • Minor Sin: Best used if you want to apply light shimmery colors. It has some glitter in it but is lighter than Sin.
  • Original: Best used if you want a natural look. It is beige pigmented and matches exactly your skin tone, making look like you applied foundation.
  • Eden: Best used if you want a natural look. If Original did not match your skin tone, you can try Eden since it is a bit darker.

Texture:

This primer has a creamy-silicone formula that is slick, giving a very light feel on the eyelids.

Effect:

After testing this primer, we found that it helps in holding the eyeshadow and making the eyeshadows colors look more vivid for a long time. It is a great option if you have oily eyelids since it doesn’t make them look greasy, and it doesn’t crease due to its matte finishing. Adding to that, you can use it even if you’re not going to wear any eyeshadow since, as stated earlier, it comes in six different shades. This product can also be used underneath your eyes as a primer for your concealer.
It’s worth noting that if you apply a setting powder on your entire lid after applying the primer, it will enable the eyeshadow to blend in an easier way.
This primer doesn’t dry out in the tube, and its texture is well preserved, even if it is not used daily.
Also, this product will probably last you for more than a year since it only requires a little product to create an effect on the lids.

Application:

Apply small amounts of the primer on your whole eyelids, and it is best if you use you finger to spread the product in an even way. As already mentioned, make sure to fix the primer with a setting powder.
If you do not want to use the wand provided, squeeze a bit on the tube and remove the product with your finger, then dab the product gently on your eyelids or underneath your eyes.

Price:

This primer is sold in Lebanon for 33$/10ML. In comparison to other primers from the same range, its price is high, especially that other brands offer more than double the capacity. However, bear in mind that you might not use it every day as you will tend to use a face primer or a foundation, and that the product can last for a year as previously mentioned.
