Ask a Question
Dull skin, fine lines and disappearing foundation? Try this primer from Urban Decay under foundation (or alone!) - for beautifully moisturized skin that looks brighter and feels tighter. Your skin will look youthful, lifted and firm, and your foundation will apply smoothly, evenly, and last longer! This formula is ideal for complexions that need moisture and mature skin (but it gives every skin type a healthy glow).

This lightweight, oil-free, paraben-free formula includes Matrixyl 3000, celebrated for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Hyaluronic filling spheres also minimize the look of fine lines while leaving skin beautifully moisturized.
Apply Complexion Primer Potion before your makeup routine for longer lasting foundation. The Brightening and Tightening formula can also be used throughout the day as an under-eye pick-me-up to brighten and refresh. For a cooling treat, try keeping it in the refrigerator to refresh under your eyes!

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion:

    I recently had a birthday and I needed a change in foundation. I had never used a primer before, the young lady did a make over on me using this products as well as others in the urban decay line. I was shocked at the difference in my skin after she finished. Much healthier with a fresh look. I really like this product.

              I my be missing something here...I did not see brighting or tightening. To me it made a shine/sheen to my skin (maybe that is the brightening) Light weight. I love their eye primer but this, not so much.

                I have been using this for about two years. It works great with my naked foundation, I actually used it the first time with a urban decay makeover. The makeup artist showed me how to use it before my makeup and then to put some on my brushes as I blend. Helps my makeup be super smooth and I can tell the difference when I run out and am not using.

                  • Q:

                    I rarely apply anything under my foundation. I have tried it in the past and I just felt like I wanted to wash myself since it felt so heavy and like I packed on too much. Will this feelection like that? I am really looking for an eye concealer, line reducer, brightner. Would this work as just that or do you have a better recommendation?

                      A:

                      Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion is for the face, not the eye area. If you're seeking a brightening eye primer, we suggest the Anti-Aging Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5640314

                      Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion will help to brighten dull skin, minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and other imperfections, as well as extend foundation's wear. It features a lightweight, moisturizing, comfortable formula for all skin types. Enjoy!

                      For best results, apply your moisturizer before and allow a few seconds for it to fully absorb into your skin before proceeding with primer application.

                      This primer is water-based. In fact, it is silicone-free (as well as oil-free and paraben-free). All ingredients are listed below for easy reference:

                      Aqua (Water/Eau), Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Polyacrylamide, Algae Extract, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Butylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Pullulan, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Laureth-7, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

                      You can certainly apply moisturizer (with or without SPF) underneath this primer without impacting its performance. For best results, just allow a few seconds for your moisturizer to fully absorb into your skin before proceeding with primer application.

                      Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion is specially formulated to minimize the appearance of pores as well as fine lines & wrinkles. It essentially creates a smooth and even canvas for foundation application.

                      It truly does help to extend your makeup's wear. We suggest using in conjunction with Chill Makeup Setting Spray, which features cooling time-release Temperature Control Technology that actually chills the surface of your makeup to keep it looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 12 hours:

                      A:

                      This primer is oil-free and formulated for all skin types; however, if your main concern is to eliminate excess oil, we recommend De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray, which controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte:
                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4930051

                      You can certainly use De-Slick in conjunction with Primer Potion for a flawlessly smooth, brightened, and mattified look!
