Beauty: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - £14.50

I first used the Urban Decay Primer Potion when I received an Urban Decay gift box which included a sample size. I rarely wear eyeshadow now, apart from for special occasions or maybe client meetings when I want my makeup to look a bit better than normal, so the sample size lasted me ages, but late last year I ran out, and I decided to treat myself to a full size tube.

I have to say, I love this product, it makes my eyeshadow stay put for so much longer than any other primer I've used (although I haven't used that many, mainly benefit products) and it makes the colours pop more, which is great for me, as I'd much rather use colour on my eyes than wear a heavy lipstick. I wouldn't say my eyelids are overly oily, as I have very dry skin on my face so I think this is the only place I have any oil at all! Maybe for ladies with much oilier eyelids this wouldn't work as well, but I find it goes on smoothly and evenly and my eyeshadow lasts for a night out or a day in the office. Really pleased I bought a full size tube, and I will definitely be buying it again when this runs out.

I was also really impressed with the service at the Urban Decay counter I went to in Debenhams, as there are now multiple versions of the Primer Potion available, the assistant talked me through each one and recommended the two she thought would work best with my complexion, these were the original potion (the one I bought) and the 'Sin' version of the potion. Really great service, and it's definitely encouraged me to go back to Urban Decay when I'm looking for new makeup products.

Do you use the Primer Potion? Do you use any other Urban Decay products? What would you recommend?

I love Primer Potion, I wouldn't be without it! A tube lasts for ages as you only need the tiniest amount

I used to use this and nothing else would do; however, I since discovered ELFs mineral eyeshadow primer which I actually prefer!
