      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

      This used to be my holy grail primer, but the last tube I purchased (just last weekend) was EXTREMELY oily. I kept at it though, and managed to apply it to my lid. I shouldn't have bothered - it made my eyeshadow CREASE like crazy!!! I am so baffled. I could try exchanging it, but I'm not sure it will matter, and that truly saddens me.

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

            I really do like this primer a lot. It is silky smooth and creates a nice finish for me to "create" my eyeshadow looks. I can notice a definite difference when I use it and when I don't (in the color pigmentation of my shadows). Eye shadow does "pop" a lot more with this underneath.

            My only very minor complaint is that it tends to cake a bit near the eyelash line - but I can generally work with it very gently to smooth it out... you have to make sure it is smoothed out before putting any shadow on over it otherwise your shadow and liner will cake too.

            I still love it and feel it is a great product well worth the money.

                If you want your eyeshadow to never crease, last for hours, and stay perfect until you wash your face, this is the product. I love it. I bought this when it was on Beauty Steals, and I should've bought more. I will use this product daily forever.

                I use Naked 3 on almost a daily basis and by mid-day, I'd have a super crease line - that is a complete thing of the past.

                    After putting moisturizer over my face and under my eyes I blot any excess cream and apply the primer, followed by my makeup. It keeps from creasing or running my eyeliner into the creases. I love this product!

                    I have recently started getting more "in to" my makeup routine-I'm getting older and sending kids off to college so trying to hold onto my youthful appearance using makeup not medicine-anyway this was one product that I kept hearing about and now I know why-it's incredible!!! I was even lucky enough to find it on sale (even though I think the reg price is fine considering how long the products lasts under normal use) Anyway to get to the point this is now a product you'll find in my makeup bag for as long as I can still put makeup on!! I love love love this and tell anyone who is within earshot!!

                              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.
