Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion

Item #: 2248402 Size: 0.94 oz

Ask a Question
Smooth on a little of this primer from Urban Decay before foundation (or alone!) to minimize the look of pores and fine lines - for flawless skin with an airbrushed look and feel. Foundation applies smoothly and won't fade away. This formula is ideal for oilier skin, but dry-skinned types seeking pore perfection will love it too.

This velvety, paraben-free formula flashes down to a soft-matte finish without the greasy, heavy feel sometimes associated with foundation primers.
Apply a pea-sized amount of the light, cool gel to bare skin. The formula goes on sheer and dries quickly. Then apply foundation, if desired. The ultra-sleek and convenient tube features a precise needle-nose tip so you can squeeze out the exact amount of primer you need.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

    This potion is creamy without being heavy. I apply the potion to my bare face before applying my foundation. I notice immediately how smoothly my foundation went on afterwards. Also, it doesn't require that you use a lot of the product. About a pea sized amount is sufficient. Good stuff.

          Absolutely amazing. I have very oily skin and had stopped wearing makeup entirely because it wouldn't feel good on my skin. This product saved me entirely. Almost 9 hours on my skin now and my makeup feels and looks amazing.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

              I was looks for a cheaper version/ dupe of my go-to beauty product dr. Brandt's pores no more- primer/ completion smoother. I am starting to see fines lines/ crows feet- laugh lines and enlarged pores. My mom gave me her dr Brandt's pores no more which was really doing the job pretty well of evening my completion and blurring the lines around my eyes. I hadn't found anything that would work as well so I willing to pay the 45$ because I just couldn't find anything like it- but I was still looking for a cheaper alternative. I tried all nyx primers which work well but just didn't work as well at hiding my crows feet. Barr minerals worked well but did not provide the same coverage of dr Brandt's. Rocs has a great wrinkle filler but wasn't a primer so I ended up needing a primer and bb cream. Make a long story short I found this which is even better than dr Brandt's! It's better coverage last longer and covers/blurs/ fills the crows feet. And it's less money!!! I'm so happy with it

                    I have tried other makeup primers but this by far is my favorite. It goes on smooth and helps your foundation go on and stay on all day. It also helps control the oil. It actually does what it says and help minimize the size of your pores. I also like the fact that it is tinted. You can wear it alone or under your foundation.

                      A friend gave me a sample of this and I didn't have my hopes up because eye shadow never stays on my eyes. Needless to say I was surprised because this actually worked on my oily eye lids and I went out and bought the full size. It was easy to blend and my eye shadow stayed on all day which never happened before. Even if I'm not wearing eye shadow I will still use this so my eye lids to prevent them from looking oily by the time the day is over.

                        This is BY FAR the best primer for me! I've used primers by Smashbox and Too Faced, and while they both did good keeping the makeup in place for the day this is the only one that smooths lines and eliminates the larger pores that I've been cursed with on my nose. All of them make good primers, but for my needs I'll stick with Urban Decay for a long time! This happened to be 1/2 off on Black Friday & I got 3 of them...

                            A:

                            This product is lightly tinted and sheer and designed for all over application rather than spot application. It does not provide the full coverage that a spot concealer does, and it works best as a skin perfecting primer to even skin tone, minimize the look of enlarged pores, and prep skin for foundation application.
