Primer Potion


I'm shamelessly so excited to try this makeup product! :0 It's Urban Decay's Primer Potion found at Sephora. It's an eyeshadow primer. You apply it before eyeshadow and the color on your lids will last all day without creasing or fading. I'd been using MACs Paints (one from my wedding) for the last 3 years. I finally finished it, but never was 100% happy with it. It was hard to get out of the container, the surface would always dry up and it was messy to apply. Worked well, but a pain to use. This product is creamier and has a wand for no touch application. $18, so definitely a surge but I think it will last 2 years or more. Anyone have a favorite eyeshadow primer?

  1. I actually hated UDPP, but it seems to be hit or miss for people, so I hope it works for you! I actually use MAC Paint Pots (Painterly is my shade). I love them. Much easier to apply and if you store them upside down, they don't really dry out that much. Been working on the one I have for almost a year and a half now.

  2. Mary Kay's eye primer is great too. I bought it, along with some makeup from Sephora for my wedding and 2 years later it's still going strong. I like it b/c it comes in a tube and is easy to apply. I normally don't like Mary Kay, it makes my face itch and I have sensitive skin but this product works great. I splurged this summer and bought some MAC while we were at KOP on our way home from the shore. Glad you enjoy yours and I might have to invest when my tube runs out!

  3. Yes, the paint pots from MAC are great! I love painterly! Didn't know about the upside down trick.

    Ania- You'll have to let me know what you got! I also picked up an eyeshadow for my sister's wedding, but I'll share after the wedding ;)

  4. Just to clarify though the Paint Pots are different than the Paints. I didn't like the Paints or the tubes they came in.

  5. I tried Urban Decay and it didn't work for me. I've also tried Smashbox and that didn't work either. I just got a sample of NARS pro prime and that works great. I think it depends on the person though. I had a bunch of people recommend Urban Decay to me. I hope you like it!
