Urban Decay Priming Potion Review

Urban Decay Priming Potion


Most of you would have already heard of, if not tried this product but for those of you who haven't taken the plunge yet here is a review of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Priming Potion.

There are different variations of this product but the only one I have tried is the one in the picture above, the 'original' which is priced at £14.50 at Debenhams.  The difference between the products are the finishes:

 Original - Nude in the tube but dries invisibly
 Eden - Tawny matte finish
 Eden Sin - Champagne shimmer finish
 Greed - Shimmering yellow
 

Just a note about Debenhams before we move on...Although, Debenhams do not always stock all make-up brands/products in their stores I find the online site brilliant as often products are a little cheaper (MAC products for example are cheaper here than House of Fraser and Selfridges) and delivery is usually free too so it is worth taking a look at their site.

Anyway.. back to the primer.  This magic potion comes in a compact squeezable lilac tube with a needle nose tip which allows you to control how much product you apply. You get 11ml of product in the tube which I think would last you a good few months depending on how much you choose to apply.  It's pretty thick so a little goes a long way.



I find the best way to apply this product is to squeeze a little onto my finger and gently rub it together to warm it a little.  I then gently spread the primer over my eyelid and right up over my brow bone.  Only one layer of this product is necessary and you really don't need to apply a lot to see the affects.  I don't wait a certain amount of time to let the product dry either, I just get straight on and start picking out what shadows I'm going to wear and apply them.

And the verdict.. I love this product! My eyeshadow stays on ALL day and evening without creasing, spreading or coming off at all.  When I return home my eye make-up looks exactly the same as it did when I left the house.

Amazing product, I will definitely re-purchase  this time and time again! I'm not even tempted to try another.

  2. I used to use this when it was in the old packaging but have a new tube to use when I'm done my current primer. Glad to here the new version works just as well :)

  3. I still have the old packaging with the wand. This seems like the product would be easier to get out.

  16. I think I am going to buy this after I run out of Benefits 'Stay don't Stray; eyelid primer. It's good but the pump dispenser is so wasteful. Thanks for the review!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Let me know what you think of Urban Decay's primer :)

      It's a shame Benefit's one hasn't got a good dispenser, it's always a let down when you can't actually make the most of the product.

  18. I've always wanted to try this as everyone raves about it, but I had never actually read a review xD My country only recently started selling Urban Decay so I'm quite interested in trying, also because my current primer is almost finished, and this review really helped me decide!! Thank you!

    Also, I changed the name of my blog, but hope you continue visiting!

    Have a good weekend!
