Most Helpful Positive Review Worth the money!
This is an amazing product! I have even (shame on me, I know), fallen asleep w my makeup on a few nights. And if I my eyes didn't water alot that night (they do that some nights), I woke up w my makeup looking like I had just gone to bed! Unbelievable! My ONLY complaint is I still have some "drugstore"makeup that I really LOVE n don't want 2 throw away. But it is unuseable w this primer! The drugstore makeup is not "creamy" enough 2 blend well w this primer. This primer has such "tackiness", that where u put the first application of color is where it stays. And it is next to impossible 2 blend that out. The "tackiness" is an AMAZING quality for high-end cosmetics,bcuz it holds the color, but also the high-end shadows have a "butter like" quality that allows for blending, once applied to a primer. "Drugstore" cosmetics I guess need a lower-end primer, one that does't have the tackiness that UDPP has. Again, this is my only complaint! But I do have to give u 4 instead of 5 stars for it, bcuz w a pricetag like yours UD, u should work with ALL shadows!
Most Helpful Critical Review Over it.
I'm done trying to make this work!
I've used the original for years, but the anti-age formula seemed like a good idea, and the fact that it was UD made me feel comfortable about buying something new.
Maybe I got a bad batch, but this primer is not at all what it claims to be, and in my opinion no where near how the original performs! Plus I didn't really see any benefit as far as the anti-age claim.
First, you have to wait a while for it to set, if you try to apply your shadow right away it can be a little too tacky and you wont get a smooth application. This really doesn't bother me, I typically apply it first.
Once it's set the shadows look great, blend perfectly and look smooth, which is great. But the staying power is totally off compared to the Original formula. For me this creases around the 6th hour and I have to reapply/blend the crease out. I do have oily lids, so I'll put that out there, but it's just not what I'm used to, especially for the price. I've had it too long now to return it, so keep your receipt if you decide to try it out!

I have loved the original, tried this, but it just isn't the same, it doesn't work like the original. Creases. is gloppy-- it just isn't the same.

Easy to apply and keeps shadow from creasing
Wand is not necessary
KAMR002 from Ohio
Why did UD include a wand with this product? How do you even keep it clean? Who actually uses the wand, ,anyway?? I would love this product if UD eliminated the useless wand. Also, no matter how careful I am, there is always a small glob of product around the top of the tube -- when I twist the lid close, the product oozes out. YUCK!!! Please come up with a better package design or just go back to the no-wand version.
Works alright but irritated my eyes
Real person from From real opinions matter
I've used this once a day for 2 days. The color stays put for over 13 hours great. That's all I really need. It's just now the corner of my eyes (where they say you can get crows feet) are rough bumpy and there is this burning feeling. I'm not using this again.
This is my second repurchase.

Makes your eyeshadow look flawless and stays in place all day.
Lynn from Manchester CT
I put this on my eyelid and then under my eye to keep my liner from creeping and giving me racoon eyes.
I do find i need to put powder over it before I put on the eye-shadow or the eye-shadow goes on a little too intense for me.
Good, but the Original is Still my Favorite
JenS DFW from DFW, Texas
I do like it but the pigment is a bit to light for me. I really like the original version with some tint more. But, the brand is still my favorite for eyeshadow primer. It's the only brand I like and I have 3-4 different types and colors.
The best eyelid primer I have ever used.
MegMax from Waco, TX
It's not cakey and is almost sheer. It's seriously great!
Love love love this primer!
Chrissy from Florida
This is my absolute favorite eye primer. It's rare that I would rate a product. This is an amazing primer that makes your eye makeup last all day and night. Truly amazing!

I sent a review before and never heard anything back!!
one if my faves
cdanilarn from Tucson AZ
I work 12 hour shifts and if I'm doing any eye makeup and want it to last till I get home is definitely this or toofaced shadow insurance. I always have to have both in stock since I cant make up my mind on which one I like better and dont want to. Very creamy on application and dries quickly. Some of my friends say primers dont make a difference and I beg to differ. this makes your shadows more vibrant and pigmented, plus keeps your shadow on 14+hours vs 5 to 6 hours over concealer or without a primer. trust me, I've experimented a bunch of times. Hope this helps♡
I will buy this eye primer again
Fritzi from Sun City, AZ
I absolutely love this product! By the end of the day my eye makeup still looks good!
Probably not. Unless it changes.
Have none from Bloomington IL
Everytime I get this product it's mostly all dried up. So am very disappointed in it. Don't know what else to try and I spent money on this now and have none to buy something else.
Skeptic Turned Addict!
JmeTmpl from Brandon, MS
I was pretty skeptical of this stuff because I've used cheaper brands in the past that didn't last. This primer glides on so smoothly and lasts all day!! I was amazing at the end of the first day- my makeup looked like I had just applied it! I will never use makeup again without it!
Where has this been my whole life?
Ann from Idaho
This is the first and only eye shadow primer I have ever used and I'm on at least my fourth tube. Where was this when I was younger?? I have always had creasing issues with my eye shadow. This totally eliminates creasing! Eye shadow stays...and stays...and stays!! I do use it with UD eye shadows so I can't speak to using it under other brands. It does survive some light rubbing (I wear contacts so I touch my eyes probably too frequently.) It can be tricky to get the most out of the tube, but I've found by gently squeezing the tube the primer will come up into the neck of the tube and onto the applicator. Totally worth the money!!
Just OK - works like any other - nothing special
Sherrie from Ashville, OH
I am 63 and use eye shadow daily. I also tend to have dry skin. This moisturizes nicely and holds the color. I really don't have any negative things to say about it. It works for me. I don't know what a WOW factor would be in an eye shadow primer. It is clear - no color, so it won't hide any dark spots around the eye area.
Great Anti-aging Primer
Ashley34 from Berea, KY
I use this product to help keep my eyeshadow in place. This is my first time using the anti aging potion but it seems to work just like the regular one. The only thing that I don't like is that there's more potion that comes out on the applicator than what you really need so I end up having to blend it in some before applying my eyeshadow.
Can't really tell a difference
New To Beauty from Mobile, AL
I have feel in love with another of new beauty products and was hopeful that I would add this to the collection. However, I can't really tell a difference with using this. I wanted to live it since I am now experimenting with my Urban Decay Naked Vault but can't say I would purchase this product again
I've been purchasing this product for years!
Jan from Moreland, GA
I use this mainly as a primer.?i like the wand because you have control of the product coming out the tube and on eye lid. But it is small for the original price. Glad I got it half price!
graciebaby from Long Island NY
the actual product works great but how it is dispensed is not so great which is why four stars. I put up with it because I love the product itself it use to be a regular tube but now they changed It to this applicator coming out of the tube. I like the old way.
Lisa from NM
Use as primer before eyeshadow
I buy this product regularly.
Vicki from Fenton, MI
Makes eyeshadow go on so much smoother. Can actually put a lighter amount of eyeshadow on because the primer allows it to stay on the surface.
EMG1003 from San Francisco Bay Area, CA
Of all places I saw this featured was on a home shopping channel and it piqued my interest. I decided to purchase it here and I really like this product. It's a primer for your eye shadow, so everything is evened out and it's like painting on a blank canvas. The eyeshadow holds up well throughout the day.
Kris from Conshy, Pa
This stuff works great. I always wait for a special or a coupon since it is rather expensive but worth it.
I would buy again
Chris from Florida
It makes my eyeshadow last and not crease
