      This primer is my baby! I bought a sample size at first just to try it and I did not regret it. I have had trouble for years with trying to get my eyeshadow and eyeliner to stay on because I have oily lids. But not aanymore because of this primer! My eyeshadow has even stayed on past the 24 hour period. I love love love this primer, it's the only one for me.

          I've used several different eye shadow primers over the years and this is by far the best. It lasts all day without any need to reapply your eye make up. My eye make up looks as good at the end of the day as it does when I first apply in the morning. This tube lasts a really long time too - and I use it every day.

                          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.

                                  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.
