        Best primer for eye shadow! I use it everyday. I have gotten so many samples of Primer Potions & because a little goes such a long way these samples will last forever. If I'm only wearing light eye make up or if I am in a hurry I use the original formula because it is invisible & the quickest & easiest to blend. I use the EDEN (nude matte) formula when I use bright, colorful shadows to make them pop. I use the SIN formula when I am going for a shimmery or glittery look. I recommend this primer & all versions of it!

        I use this everyday! This is a must. Keeps everything in its place and makes even non Urban Decay shadow show better and stay longer. If you do not shut lid on right it will give you gritty, flakes/clumps. Even when I sweated at a special event last night it still keep my shadow on and looking gorgeous.

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

            This eyelid primer is great..

            When I first used this, (in the winter), my eyes got completely dried out and my eye makeup creased. BUT, in the summer, my eyelids got oily, and so the primer helped make my lids a normal, soft, texture, which made the eyeshadow apply smoothly.

            It's a decent primer that brings out the eyeshadow colors, but it doesn't work as well on oily lids. It starts to crease after a few hours as the lids get oily during the day.

              This product is wonderful. I use it every day. It has kept my eyeshadow perfect for over twelve hours. It even kept my shadow in place at a family barbeque where it was over 85 degrees. Love love love it!!

                      We recommend allowing Primer Potion to dry a few seconds before proceeding with eyeshadow application.

                      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:

                      A:

                      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.
