            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

            WOW! I am so in love with this primer! I was seriously considering giving up eyelid primer forever because I just couldn't seem to find one that didn't make my eyelids dry and resistant to eyeshadow application. This stuff is so smooth and creamy, it just glides on perfectly. My shadow looks exactly the same as if I had just put it on even sixteen hours later. As a bonus, this primer actually helps my eyeliners last longer too, which I had never had with previous (high end) primers. This will be a product I can never go without. Also, I have very sensitive skin and this did not cause any issues for me, just as a side note.

                Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

                I had a go to primer for over a year, really loved it, until I decided to try the sample of primer potion I got with an urban decay order. This stuff is fantastic, you don't really need alot of it, and my makeup NEVER fades or creases, even while I work. The only way I can see this really not working for someone is if they over apply it. A rice sized or less amount is enough to do both lid and undereye.

                          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.

                        what color is this primer? Is it meant for light skin women. Some primers that are tan make the dry eye shadow come out with the tint of brown.
