Burnt my skin!

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion:

      This product mattified my skin on initial application, but wore off throughout the day. I usually use Smashbox photo finish primer(which lasts all day,) but I got this product on an incredible discount. That should have tipped me off that this isn't a good primer; not only did it not last all day, but after the second day it started to chemically burn my skin. It was red, painful, and swollen. Nothing I put on it seemed to help, and I had to wait a few days for it to heal on its own. Do not buy this product if you have sensitive skin!

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion:

        I was looking for something to keep my oily skin from getting soooo shiny throughout the day. LOVE their eye shadow primer and was told this was just as good but for the whole face. Unfortunately, it's heavy and if anything my skin was more oily from using it. gave it a try for a couple days and it just felt like i was getting shiny quicker from it. let down :(

                  What I really like about this product is that it feels refreshing on your skin when you apply. Some primers feel heavy and that their clogging the skin but not this one. It's not my all time favorite primer but it's in my top 5.

                    I purchased this product after receiving a recommendation from a sales associate. I was specifically looking for a cream/lotion to decrease the appearance of lines above my lip. This product "felt good" but I did not notice any clear indication that it was any different than Prime Time by Bare Minerals. I returned the product.

                        A:

                        You can certainly apply moisturizer (with or without SPF) underneath this primer without impacting its performance. For best results, just allow a few seconds for your moisturizer to fully absorb into your skin before proceeding with primer application.

                      For the over 50 crowd, sometimes primer shows every pore on my nose (even though they are small). Does this product show pores? Also, my makeup literally melts and sweats off in the TX humidity. Will this honestly make it stay on better? Thanks in advance.

                        A:

                        Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion is specially formulated to minimize the appearance of pores as well as fine lines & wrinkles. It essentially creates a smooth and even canvas for foundation application.

                        It truly does help to extend your makeup's wear. We suggest using in conjunction with Chill Makeup Setting Spray, which features cooling time-release Temperature Control Technology that actually chills the surface of your makeup to keep it looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 12 hours:

                        This primer is oil-free and formulated for all skin types; however, if your main concern is to eliminate excess oil, we recommend De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray, which controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4930051

                        You can certainly use De-Slick in conjunction with Primer Potion for a flawlessly smooth, brightened, and mattified look!
