Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Nude

Item #: 2286790 Size: 0.33 oz

A seemingly impossible feat, Urban Decay found a way to make Eye Shadow Primer Potion even better. With revamped packaging that includes an applicator, this legendary primer looks more gorgeous and applies with more versatility. And the formula still packs the powers it's famous for: 24-hour, crease-free shadow, more vibrant color and smoother application.

Once you've tried Eye Shadow Primer Potion, you'll never want to live without it. Space-age polymer technology fills in any imperfections on the skin's surface, prepping your lids for all-day shadow. Urban Decay's paraben-free Original finish glides on smoothly, blends beautifully on all skin tones and dries invisibly.

Easy on the eyes in more ways than one, this coveted primer now comes in revamped packaging with gorgeous ombré artwork and a faceted, jewel-like cap. Squeeze the Potion directly from the tube or use the flocked wand applicator. Either way, you get precise, controlled application every time.
Smooth on just a touch of Eye Shadow Primer Potion before your shadow for 24 hours of wear and NO creasing. You can also wear alone for a subtle neutral look.

Pro tip: Can also serve as shadows or highlighters!

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

This is a great product. However, I'm wondering if they've changed the formula. Seems thinner and less effective...we will see how it does in the long run. I've tried the nude matte as well and it's terrible. Too white and does not keep eyeshadow from creasing or mascara from getting on the brow bone.
Also, I prefer the squeeze tube to the sponge stick. Not sure if they make that anymore.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

    My eyeliner stays on with this. I do have to dust a bit with a translucent powder and go easy on my eye cream, which helps it last even longer. It is a very good product. Pricey but worth it.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        After using this product for years, I bought a new tube not knowing there's now a WAND/applicator built in. It didn't distribute enough product on my eyelids and was a hassle (for me) to work with. (I just want to squeeze a bit of the product onto my finger and apply it that way.) Unfortunately, my eyeshadow was creased by the end of the day. I returned the product.

          I really really love this. I would give this 5 stars, however I noticed that sometimes when I apply this it will mostly clump and mess with my concealer, but if I blend my eyeshadow over it, it all goes over smoothly and with completely cover the weird areas. It also gives my eyeshadows AMAZING color.

                I think that the shadows show great pigmentation with this product, but they are not blended easily. I was very disappointed after seeing so many great reviews.
