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

When I first tried it out I noticed after awhile my chin started to itch. Than I used it another time to make sure that it was not something else causing me to itch or breakout. Well sorry to say started to itch again & my chin was red from itching. I must be allergic to something in the product. I'm sure it is a good product & other people have no problem with it, but me I can't use it.

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

      This is, hands down, the best item in my makeup bag. I have used Smashbox primers prior to this and my face always ended up feeling greasy and I saw absolutely no difference regarding the longevity of my makeup. I decided to try this product as I am a fan of Urban Decay, and was blown away by what this product can do. My skin looks brighter and my makeup literally lasts all day. I have combination / oily skin and my makeup usually slides down my face by mid-day, but with this product, it looks just as fresh as it did when I put it on at 7:00 AM. Highly recommend! It's pricey, but it's worth it!

                I use over my daily moisturizer and it adds an extra soft brightening effect. I tested it a few different ways and came to the conclusion that it in fact does work, and does make my skin look brighter and more evened out. It goes well with my Chanel vitalumiere Aqua foundation and chanel powder.

                  I have really sensitive skin and this product doesn't bother me at all. It feels really cool and good going on. Seems to help makeup last a little longer and apply smoother.

                  • Q:

                    For the over 50 crowd, sometimes primer shows every pore on my nose (even though they are small). Does this product show pores? Also, my makeup literally melts and sweats off in the TX humidity. Will this honestly make it stay on better? Thanks in advance.

                      A:

                      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!

                    I love their primer potion on my eyelids, its the only thing that keeps eye shadow on because I'm so oily. I sometimes even use it as a primer for the face. I was wondering if these primers are good for oily tzones?
