        I use this almost everyday when I put on my eyeshadow makeup and it's great! Lasts for a long time, the color is very good. The price is a little expensive for me, but it's still worth the buy!

                      I use this product everyday since discovered how great it keeps your eye shadow on. I love that you only need a tiny bit to last all day. The price is worth it since it lasts forever.I haven't really found any con's for it yet. I also use urban decay eye shadow with the primer.

                          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.
