    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

    This is a great primer. I found out that a tiny dab is more that enough or it can get gummy. I use a gentle patting and light rubbing motion to apply it, then wait a few minutes for it to set. I find that it helps the over all look of eye shadow and makes the colors more intense. Great buy!

        I gave my daughter a sample size of this over 2 years ago and as soon as it ran out she asked me for a new tube. This is the third time I buy this for her and she loves the way her eyeshadow applies over it and how much longer it lasts.

          I think it's important for people to know that applying your darker contour color first, after the base, makes for a better look and wearability.

            I got the two pack for my mom and I. Her tube is fine no cakey-ness or clumpiness. My tube was messed up difficult to spread and kept clumping. Exchanged it and now its doing it again, idk what's wrong with it.
            The couple times i've tried it it keeps my eye shadow on, but i know it shouldn't be this difficult to spread and blend out, especially for the price.

                  By far the best eyeshadow primer I've tried! Plus, you only need a minute amount. So the bonus is it last for a very long time. That means $$$ saved!

                  I'm a new user, I'm very impressed by it's performance, my hard work of stooping in front of the mirror or squinting when working near the eyes applying eye shadow, liquid and/or pencil liners, mascara etc., have paid off when I apply this and don't have to worry after just a couple of hours whether to reapply or blot for oil. I have combination skin, I would avoid this on dry parts of my face, at times I do use it on my T-zone if I'm too lazy to apply other primers.

                    Although it is a little pricey, you don't actually use that much of it on a daily basis so it lasts for quite some time. also it really does work. I've used others and they just dont have the same effect. Love the product

                            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.
