Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

This is the only primer I have ever used. I had no idea it had such a following, but I'm glad I picked it! It's simple, my eyeshadow lasts all day/all night now. I was a victim of creases (super embarrassing!), so I bought this stuff and even though it's expensive, it's totally worth it. One tube lasts a long time too because you only need a teeny tiny bit on your eyelids. The primer is very silky and slightly sparkly when you put it on. I like that it's sparkly, but I can see that maybe being an issue if you were going for a really matte look. Overall a GREAT product.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        I don't know where my eyeshadow would have been if I didn't hear about this product and buy it. Seriously, it's amazing. Since the original forumula doesn't have a color to it, you can use it with any shade of eyeshadow. When I use this product, I will just apply a small amount with one of my fingers, and let it sit for a few seconds before I start applying my eyeshadow. And my eyeshadow will last through out the night.
        The only thing I have noticed is that my eyeshadow will still crease just a small amount on the inner corner of my eyes, but that doesn't bother me too much.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

          I suffer from really greasy eyelids that make my eyeliner and mascara smudge. I use Primer Potion to help keep the oil at bay and keep my eye makeup looking pristine all day. I apply it even if I'm not wearing eyeshadow! It's a daily must-have! Even if the price is kind of high, since you only have to use a tiny bit, it will last you for awhile.

          My holy grail

          By Meg

          from PA

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

          This truly changed everything in my makeup world. Keeps my eyeshadow in place, and makes the colors more vibrant on application. If you don't have it, go and buy it IMMEDIATELY! I haven't tried the other types (sin, anti-aging, etc.), but I'm very excited to! This is an absolute must-have! Will always be in my kit.

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

            My huge complaint about eye shadow is that by mid-day, my shadow would crease up and fade. The Urban Decay Primer solved my problem. It lastsall day!

            I use a concealer brush to apply the shadow instead of my fingers (to avoid creating wrinkles) & this works great!

                  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:

                  Try this product (Original), which applies nude and dries invisibly, or try Urban Decay Eden Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Item #: 2229942), which features a nude matte finish.

              • Q:

                what color is this primer? Is it meant for light skin women. Some primers that are tan make the dry eye shadow come out with the tint of brown.

                  This product applies nude but dries invisibly, so it will not alter the color of your eyeshadow.
