    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

    I use it everyday no matter what look i'm going for, its in practically all YouTube videos. It honestly is the best eye primer! I makes all of the makeup on my eyes stay on there, and the product doesn't come off until I take it off.

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

            I had just about given up hope on wearing eyeshadow thanks to my super oily lids. No matter what brand of eyeshadow and/or primer, the eyesahdows always creased after an hour or two. Thank goodness for Ulta and the nice salesperson who suggested UD's primer! I tried it out and for the first time ever I had my eyeshadow on all day with no creasing at all! Best of all considering the price is how little I need to apply. With just a tiny dot on my pinky I get all day creasless shadow. My only issue is that the primer is much lighter than my skintone, so anything not covered in shadow looks off, but I fix this with a cream eyeshadow over it :)

              After using this, I don't even bother to do my eye make-up without it. It makes applying my shadows so much easier, they blend together nicer and they stay on ALL day! Can't say enough good things about this product.

                  Without primer my eyeshadow disappears before I can drive to work. The urban decay keeps my shadow in place all day with little to no creasing.

                    I love this product. It's a little bit on the pricey side for my taste, but I haven't found any thing that really compares in a drug store product. It is quality I am a willing to spend money on. For me, my eyeshadow is the most important part of my makeup everyday, so if I can find a product that makes it stay as long as possible, I am all over it. This product is 100% all it claims to be.

                          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:

                          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.

                          None of the Primer Potions include an applicator. We recommend applying a small amount using your fingers, although you can certainly use an eyeshadow or eye detail brush to apply.
