          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

          I was amazed... Use of this product made my eye shadow last all day and all night. I slept in my shadow to test the primer and my eye shadow looked exactly the same the next morning (vibrant and un-creased). I have been a MAC loyalist for many years thinking no other company could compare (for my oily skin). I am happy to report that I will try more UD products because of this wonderful experience with the eye shadow primer. It is worthy of your hard earned money.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

              My skin is oily. When I was working a normal day I used this product and it held up fantastic. The color stayed perfect all day long. I was impressed. I used it another day that I was outside a lot in the heat and I did see creasing in the center of my lid. It held up much better than any others I tried before though. If I was inside all day it would stay looking perfect.

                I love this stuff! I use it everyday. I no longer worry or give a second thought to my eye makeup. It looks as good at 10pm as it did at 7am when I put it on. Before, I was always getting that, annoying crease on my eyelid, by 4pm my eyeshadow looked sad. This stuff keeps it where it is supposed to be. I have been using this for a few years and will continue. Highly recommended.

                  I use this everyday I wear eyeshadow, which is 5 days a week. Some days it's on for 12 hours. No creasing and works well with any brand of eyeshadow you choose. Oh, did I mention a tube lasts for about a year.

                      I loved the way this product went on and how it lasted if I didn't go outside. The only problem is the minute I looked into the light my eyes watered like crazy until all my makeup came off. I know that sounds a little crazy but this doesn't happen when I don't use this product.

                          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.
