Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

So when I first got this, I wasn't in love with it. I now use it just about everyday under my normal eyeshadow. It does not blend well, however I found that using a brush does help. I love the gold undertones that it gives my normal day to day eyeshadow. This is one of those products that people are either going to love it or hate it. I'm not in love with it, but it's a keeper!

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

Love this product, the only real downside is if you apply just a tad too much, its a shimmery overload. If applied in the right amount--which unless you are attending a party i would say apply sparingly. Otherwise, awesome :)

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

I LOVE THIS STUFF!

I'm mixed, so it suits my skin color perfectly.
Feels right at home in my makeup box, as I wear a lot of golds, and this amps up the pigment.
It can be worn alone as an eyecolor if desired, it's that pigmented, and that pretty.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE GOLD COLOR ON YOUR EYES, BUYER BEWARE!

I have found that it's not something that can be blended under other colored shadows. It's pretty much strictly for colors in the golden spectrum, or colors that look great with gold shimmer showing through.

A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

This is the best of the Urban Decay eye primers and their least expensive. A primer Ia always best when wearing eye shadow and this one can be worn alone. It goes on shimmery but can be toned down if blended back n forth. A pin drop is all u need for both eyes. Blends super easy and smoothly. Best eye primer I have ever used. Would've given it all stars but I need something that lasts at least 16hrs.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

    Good product to use with eye shadows or alone if pressed for time! I took it with me for my cruise and my pics looked beautiful...hated to take my make-up off at the end of the night. Product not too greasy, watery, or pasty. It's just right! I've used the Urban Decay before in the other colors as well in the sample size so that's what made me buy the regular size tube. But grab up the Greed because it's being discontinued!

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

      I love this primer. It blends well with my shadow. Even when I'm sweating at work my shadow stays put. I love the gold color when I use my pink shadow it becomes a rose gold with this primer. And it when I wash my face it comes off easily I don't have to scrub my eyes out just to get it off.

      Impossible to blend...

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Greed Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

      I was excited to try this product. It worked well at keeping my eyeshadow in place and kept it from creasing. HOWEVER, it is nearly impossible to blend. Ugh. It is so pigmented and so sparkly. Combine that with the inability to blend, it makes for a very stark and noticible line where the primer starts and ends.

      • Q:

        Does this perform better than the original formula or a Too Faced Shadow Insurance?

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          This product provides the same no-crease 24-hour lasting power as the Original and Too Faced Shadow Insurance, plus a shimmering yellow gold finish so that it can double as an eye shadow.
