Rated 4.45 out of 5 stars
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!

This is the only eyeshadow primer I use. Applys easily and keeps eyeshadow looking fresh all day. If your looking for a primer or want to switch primers this is what I'd suggest.
I like it!
Krissy from Ohio
Works great. I saw lots of complaints about the wand being unsanitary. I have to wonder if those people always use a clean brush to apply lipstick. Disposable spoolies every time they apply mascara? Single use eyeliner? Let's not even discuss powder puffs, brushes, and sponges. The wand isn't all that useful, but I'm not real concerned about it's cleanliness.
Best Primer Ever!
LB from San Jose, CA
I have used this product for years and love how smooth it goes on and makes my eye shadow stay put. The anti-aging factor is also a big plus.
Smooth eyelids and creates staying power for shadow
MimzyB from Inola, OK
This product makes a great base for eye shadow. Can go all day and remains fresh looking. Also prevents creasing of shadow.
My Holy Grail
A.J. from Pocomoke City
I love this! I have tried several primers for my oily lids and nothing has worked, until this. This goes on creamy and smooth. It doesn't crease even when I take awhile to get to set it. I use a skin tone eyeshadow to set and then do whatever I want on top. Makes even cheap shadows show beautifully. Lasts all day until I take it off. My only complaint if the packaging. while cute, it does make it hard to get the product out. A straight tube like mascara would be better.
Pefect! NO CREASE!!
Carmen from NC
I have never used eyeshadow primer before. I looked at everything and all the reviews. I saw this and thought okay I'll give it a try. Truly a wonderful product. My eyeshadow stays in place all day long and does not crease. Let me say that again, IT DOES NOT CREASE!! I am over 40 so makeup does not wear like it use too and to find something that will not make my eyeshadow crease is a huge plus! Love this product!!
Not that impressed!
Carol S from Lockport Illinois
I put on my lid, and waited a few minutes, then placed eye shadow on my lid. Within hours it has the look of uneven application, or a worn look. Not all over color
Not as good
Ann from Chicago
Smooth and effective
Anastasia from New York
Very smooth application, makes my eyelids feel so soft. Works great with eyeshadows that otherwise have hard time sticking. Definitely enhances the shade and prolongs wear
Love this creamy primer!

Great under eyeshadow
Not as good as original
Gg girl from NJ
I bought this over the original formula (which I've used for years) because I'm officially middle aged and want illuminating products. My eyeshadow creased, which NEVER happens with the original. I guess my eyelids are still oily enough to warrant the original. I exchanged for the tried and true original.
Gg girl from New Jersey
I've used the original formula for at least 20 years. That being said, I'm now middle age and needed to transition my routine products. This is just as good as the original now that my needs are different.
Can't do without it
Lady Hawkrider from Hot Enough to Make the Devil CryArkansas
I use who's under powder that covers uneven pigment on my eyelids, and to conceal under eye problems. I don't walk out the door without wearing it. It's a MUST HAVE!
just use the original
posi-vibes from DC
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.
4greatcats from Montoursville, PA
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.
Janelle from Ohio
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!
