        By far the best eyeshadow primer I've tried! Plus, you only need a minute amount. So the bonus is it last for a very long time. That means $$$ saved!

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        I'm a new user, I'm very impressed by it's performance, my hard work of stooping in front of the mirror or squinting when working near the eyes applying eye shadow, liquid and/or pencil liners, mascara etc., have paid off when I apply this and don't have to worry after just a couple of hours whether to reapply or blot for oil. I have combination skin, I would avoid this on dry parts of my face, at times I do use it on my T-zone if I'm too lazy to apply other primers.

          Although it is a little pricey, you don't actually use that much of it on a daily basis so it lasts for quite some time. also it really does work. I've used others and they just dont have the same effect. Love the product

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

              Got a tiny sample size of this the other day and was not at all disappointed. I only need a pea sized amount for both lids so it is going to last a long time. I used the primer in combination with the shadow box shadows and they last all day, all night, and in to the next morning!! Good stuff well worth the money and as soon as my sample runs out I will be running back to the store to buy more.

                      How long is this good for after you buy it? Does it expire? I bought one a year ago and only used it like 2 or 3 times so far so I want to know if it's still good to use

                        Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion dries invisibly, while Eden features a nude matte finish that can double as eyeshadow.

                        A:

                        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.
