    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion:

    Ive used urban decay products before and have never been disappointed. Been looking everywhere for an eyeshadow primer. I recommend any urban decay products. Remember, you get what you pay for. A little bit goes a long way which is great cuz you dont run out as quickly. I saw a difference in my eyeshadow like night and day. I dont know how i ever used eyeshadow without primer.

          This product is great! I am a big fan of eye shadow and have many different eye shadow pallets that I like to use. I purchased the eye shadow primer in the original tint and it works great with all colors and shades. The primer also makes the eye shadow last all through the day and into the night without creasing or fading away.

                I have fairly oily eyelids and have been looking for a primer for a long time. This is it! I can finally see my shadows and it lasts all day. Perfect.

                • Q:

                  Is this product safe to use for those of us with Celiac disease, i.e. is it gluten-free? It seems like a silly question, but you'd be amazed how many beauty ingredients are sourced from grains. I had to throw away a lip gloss that featured wheat germ oil, for example. (It took me weeks of extreme unpleasantness to figure that one out.) I've heard wonderful things about this primer, & have wanted to try it for ages. Thank you for watching out for 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:

                    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.
