      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

      I used a different product before and wanted to test out a different brand. Asked the Ulta sales associate what she would recommend and she pointed me to Urban decay's line of eye primer. It was tooted as the golden product for an eye primer so I went ahead and got it.

      I have a a problem with this product because when I gently squeeze the container for product, clear greasy liquid comes out, as if the product had been sitting on the shelf for years and is not a mixture anymore. But this happens everytime. So everytime I have to shake and clap the product in my hand to mix it all up.

      After 8 hours of wearing this, my eyelids get oily again and my eyeliner starts to stick to my upper eyelid area and it looks like I have a black eye now.

                        This product is fabulous. I have shied away from eyeshadow for a long time because I have really deep creases. Since I've gotten this product I've worn eyeshadow almost everyday. It is a great base that not only prevents creasing, but also gives a great base for really pigmented colors.

                              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.
