      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

      I use this primer and the antiaging primer as well from UD. I like them both. Key is to put it on, wait a couple minutes like long enough to apply foundation and blush, then apply eye shadows. It works great!!!

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        LOVE THIS!!! I received samples in another Urban Decay product I purchased, and so far this has been my favorite of the Urban Decay Primers. I have very oily skin, and have tried many other eye shadow bases that never seemed to make the cut(including MAC & Bare Essentials). This is the best!!! I am a wedding coordinator, and work long hours in the heat, and this kept up with my crazy days. I am so impressed and relieved to finally find something that works for my lifestyle/skin.

            I use this everyday. Without it my eyeshadow fades and ceases, even the best brands. Not recommended but, i can wake the next morning and my eye look has not budged. Totally works 24 hours +. Love it.

              I've been using this product for years and for good reason- it is easy to apply, 1 tube lasts you forever, and it WORKS! I see a magical difference in my eye makeup when I prime with this stuff. Eyeshadow blends more easily, lasts longer, and looks brighter.

              This is definitely a "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!" situation.

                  Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

                  This is my all time favorite Shadow Primer. I've tried so many others and ALWAYS come back to Urban Decay. There is absolutely nothing negative I can say about it. I have it in 3 shades, but use the Original the most because I usually wear very neutral tones on a daily basis and this shade is perfect. It most definitely does work 24 hours +. I've proved that on more than several occasions. It NEVER creases on me and glides on ultra smooth. It also requires just a tiny dab each use, and the tube lasts FOREVER without drying out. The quality remains perfect. I highly recommend this shadow primer.

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

                      Is this safe to wear for contact lense users or do you recommend another primer. Not sure about blurring over lenses. Thank you

                        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.

                        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:

                        Try this product (Original), which applies nude and dries invisibly, or try Urban Decay Eden Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Item #: 2229942), which features a nude matte finish.
