Urban Decay Primer Potion

Urban Decay Primer PotionI had honestly never heard of a primer before I started exploring the amazing world of makeup a little deeper in the end of 2008. Primer? Why on earth would one need a primer? A primer is something you use when you're redecorating your home. Somewhere along the path of exploration something convinced me to try out a primer, although I can't really remember what it was. Now I'll gladly admit that I've become an addict.

I'm sure there are lots of different ways to apply the primer, but this is what I do. I use the applicator wand to dab a small stripe of product down the middle of both my eyelids. I then put the primer away, and use a clean finger to blend the primer all over the lid and up to the brow. I'm careful to use just enough to cover the area I want. Less is absolutely more! Remember the product is not supposed to be visible, it's just a base for your eyeshadow. The consistency is creamy, and it's colorless. It's heaven in a little tube!

Unfortunately it's not all good. Even though the tube has a very nice look, it's impossible to get all of the product out of the packaging because of its shape. When you think it's empty there might still be alot of product left inside the tube. Who would want it all to go to waste? Cut the tube open from top to bottom, scrape what's left into another container, and voila! - you still have lots of UDPP to enjoy. Since I really love this product, and it really does what it's supposed to do, I'm not going to let the packaging pull final my verdict down.

Urban Decay Primer Potion comes in three different colors:
Original, Sin and now also Eden.

The Verdict:
RatingIf you have oily lids, or if you use glasses, you might have experienced that your eye makeup crease easily, or even tend to slide off your lids after a short while. That's exactly what a primer is meant to prevent, in addition to making the colors more vivid. And that my friend, is exactly what this primer does. UDPP Original leaves a perfect canvas which makes the eyeshadow easier to blend, and stay put all day. It also dries quickly, without leaving any color on the lid. I have seen some people complaining about the wand, but I don't really see the problem as I mainly use a clean finger for blending it out. If you ask me, this is an absolute must-have. If you don't already own one, run out and get it - you won't regret it!

Say goodbye to creasing, because this stuff is the bomb!

  1. Should I have mentioned where you can order it from, if you’re in Norway?

  2. Ooh a potion, sounds magical and mysterious. I like the bottle, feels like there’ll be a genie inside.
