    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

    This stuff works wonders. I never believed the hype until I used some of my friend's and I will never go without it now. It applies so easily and you need very little but it makes eyeshadow not budge in the slightest. It doesn't crease, fade or wear away for at least 12 hours. It really is a miracle worker.

    Irritates my eyelid skin

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

      This is not about Urban Decay's product as much as it is a recommendation for people with super sensitive skin. I am always concerned what I put on my eyelids as concealers or shawdow will burn/sting, then the skin weeps moisture and swells slightly. It is always hit or miss on products I can use, and I wanted to be able to use this primer. For my skin it does not work. I am only posting to alert others with super sensitive skin they could have an issue too.

      Oddly enough there are some eye products within the same cosmetic line I can wear and yet a different color will cause irritation.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        I have been in love with this product since I got my first sample in my very first urban decay pallet. It's something I cannot live without and I will never hesitate to spend the money on it. I have zero complaints and have gotten all of my closest friends and family using it. when I am stopped in public and asked about my makeup, I always tell them that the urban decay primer is the first step to success! I have used it for photo shoots and the pigments show beautifully! I absolutely love this product.

        Best Eyeshadow Primer!

        By Lexie

        from AL

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

        I consider myself makeup savvy, although I am no professional. My eyeshadow has always creased very badly after a couple of hours of having applied eyeshadow. I have tried SOOOOO many other primers, but this is the only one that keeps my eyeshadow looking perfect all day long. Seriously, try this primer. You won't regret it!

                  Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

                  I'm not a "makeup person." My day-to-day routine involves face moisturizer and lip balm, but sometimes I'll throw on some eyeshadow and mascara. I adore Urban Decay eye shadow and have been buying it for 15 years. When I wear it, I'm gonna wear Urban Decay (smog, for those interested).

                  But I always had a problem with the eyeshadow migrating to the creases in my eyelids and rubbing away almost entirely by the end of the day.

                  I heard about this Urban Decay Primer Potion, and thought I'd try it out. I wound up getting the 'travel' size tube, due to my aforementioned usual lack of makeup.

                  It. Is. Awesome. Seriously, amazing. It went on easily, and now 8 hours later, my eyeshadow hasn't budged one bit. I even turned to my coworker and said, "Look at my eye lids!"

                  I highly recommend this product- whether you're an every day makeup user or only dabble occasionally.

                      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.

                      We recommend allowing Primer Potion to dry a few seconds before proceeding with eyeshadow application.

                      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.

                      This product applies nude but dries invisibly, so it will not alter the color of your eyeshadow.
