    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

    My eyeliner would not stay on no matter what brand or type I used. This was recommended to me by an Ulta employee. Apparantly my eyelids have become too oily, thus no makeup will stay on them. This works perfectly. My eyeliner stays on all day/all evening. The applicator makes it easy to use. I do not use eye shadow but this looks perfectly normal on my lids. I love it and I am so happy it was recommended to me!

      I love this stuff. Works great. Even cheaper eye shadow will stay put for hours!
      My only critique is the new applicator makes it difficult to only use a little bit. And a little goes a long way with this stuff. A must buy

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

        I LOVE this product. I put on my make up around 7am for school and get off work around 11pm, and my eye make up is flawless! (I hate washing my face when my eyeshadow looks so good) I use it with my naked pallet and it works wonderful. My mom even uses it! I've also used other eye shadow brands and they last just as long! I use to apply with my finger, but when I recently purchased it, it came with a wand that I really like! I use the original, I've tried all the different types (samples came with my pallet) and decided original is my favorite.

        stays on well, seems a little oily, don't like the want. I spread it with my ring finger.
        I liked studio gear consistency better. not sure I will buy this again.

          Stay power but dries skin

          By Alyssa E

          from Minneapolis, MN

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

          I've found the staying power of my shadows to be incredible using this product compared to using nothing. However, it seems to dry out the skin above my mobile lid. I may need to look for a different primer or only use it on my mobile lid.

            I was really impressed with this, I have tried other primers and I wondered why one even needed a primer, but once I bought this, I realized what a good primer can do.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

              I'd give this no stars if I could.. I bought this product to try as so many people I know say that it is their holy grail. .... I don't know WHY! It's expensive, hard to blend, and it dries fast. It gets tacky when it dries and if you touch it to even try to blend it more, it will just stick the product to your finger. It still creases, despite saying that it doesn't. I don't believe there is ever going to be a product that will prevent creasing, but there are products to delay it. Not to mention, this was HARD to take off! I really, really, really wanted to like this, but I hate it so much. I can't wait to return it. I've never returned a product before, but I can't stand it. It also makes it look extremely obvious you are wearing it. It has a orange-yellowish tint to it when it oxidizes. It also created lines on my eyes, making me look older than I actually am. Ask for a sample instead of buying the entire thing, so that you are sure you want it and so you don't waste time returning it. I wish I had something great to say, but I don't. And, ladies, if you find yourself not liking something you recently bought from Ulta, they will take returns and refund you your money or (with your choice) give you store credit. This did not work for me unfortunately, but it may work for you. Just ask for a sample instead of buying a tube, whether it is travel size or regular.

              • Q:

                Is this product safe to use for those of us with Celiac disease, i.e. is it gluten-free? It seems like a silly question, but you'd be amazed how many beauty ingredients are sourced from grains. I had to throw away a lip gloss that featured wheat germ oil, for example. (It took me weeks of extreme unpleasantness to figure that one out.) I've heard wonderful things about this primer, & have wanted to try it for ages. Thank you for watching out for me!

                  You may prefer Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Item #: 2260927), which provides the same 24-hour vibrant crease-free shadow wear that this original product does, plus helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles in 8 weeks. Learn more here:

                  A:

                  Primer Potion is tested and approved for use on the eye area, so it should not cause irritation when used this way; however, it is not indicated for specific use as a concealer primer for the under eye area. It is indicated for use as an eyeshadow primer applied to the eyelids.
