Urban Decay Primer Potion Review


Hello Beauties:) 

The product is marketed as:

"This is it – THE most legendary primer in the beauty industry. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is coveted by makeup artists and makeup junkies alike because it guarantees more vibrant eyeshadow that lasts for 24 hours and NEVER CREASES! Once you experience its powers (plus how smoothly it glides on – an added bonus) you’ll never want to live without it. Original formula dries down invisibly, while Eden, Sin and Greed are shades that can also be worn as shadows or highlighters!

Hi Beauties
Are you an eye shadow person? If yes, you NEED this!
My Collection

This review is LONG overdue.I bought my primer set a few months ago from Rubybox for R399.
There are 4 primers in the set and it is really worth it,worth every cent actually!
There are four different colors for this eyeshadow primer- Original ( light beige); Greed (light yellowish shimmer gold); Sin (champagne shimmer) and Eden (light matte beige).
Packaging

                                                         
On blending, the potion becomes invisible and disappears into the skin 
You have been warned that these primers literally grabs the eyeshadow onto the lids like a magnet so its best not to make mistakes :)
Even really bad eyeshadows look extremely VIBRANT over these primers!
This product eliminates oiliness from your eyelids and you only need a TINY bit for each eye.

Colours and Uses: Greed, Sin and Eden can be used as eyeshadows or highlights.
Greed: It's highly pigmented light shimmery yellow gold .
Original: This is a very light beige
Sin: shimmery champagne with pink undertones (My Fave)
Eden: light matte beige

Texture: very light and smooth and blends over your own eyelid easily.Its like a mousse liquid texture.

Packaging: Its in these very cute potion genie like bottles with an applicator wand. While I haven't gotten to the point where I've used so much primer that I'm at the end of the bottle, I've read ALOT of internet outrage at product being stuck in the bottle and not being able to get at all of it. Some people were even cutting open the packaging to get to it, which is a little extreme but if you're like me then you would want to get all the product for which you paid for.Even though the bottle looks cute,Im not a fan because the product is then stuck in the curves of the bottle.I see Urban Decays packaging is now different (Tubeform) which is much better.


New Packaging
                                                             

Longevity: 10/10-yes i did the test of passing out with my makeup on lol i know its so wrong *beautyfail* but when i woke up,my eye makeup was still so PERFECT and intact! Amazing!The shadows were still in place and NO creasing.I was seriously impressed.Passing out with makeup on,i promise to never do that again!

Cost: It is very pricey.I paid R400 for my set of 4 primers from www.rubybox.co.za. Not all Urban Decay products are available in South Africa but Rubybox have selected Urban Decay products which is quite nice :)
They had  the Urban Decay Naked FAMOUS eyeshadow palette on their online store but it was sold out like...in a day!!!!

Solution to get product out of your tube:
When you THINK its finished:
1 bottle can last a very long time and when you think it is finished,you can still savior whats left in the bottle and it is quite alot of product.
Just pop it into the microwave for a few seconds
Cut the bottle in half
And scrape the product into a little container

Your primer is NOT finished!!!!

                                                         
I honestly do not regret this buy,in fact ,its my favorite product because i love my smokey eyes and been creative with eye makeup.
On blending side of things, the potion becomes invisible and disappears into the skin You have been warned that these primers literally grabs the eyeshadow onto the lids like a magnet so its best not to make mistakes :)Even really bad eyeshadows look extremely VIBRANT over these primers!This product emlinates oiliness from your eyelids and you only need a TINY bit for each eye.

WORTH EVERY CENT :)
