Back in December 2011, I purchased a Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion 11ml in Original (hereinafter refer as UDPP) for RM55 from my favourite seller in eBay Malaysia. The only place to buy Urban Decay from retail is Sephora and it’s retailing at RM75 / USD20. Why didn’t I buy from Sephora you asked? Well if you knew your trusted authentic online seller is selling RM20 cheaper would you still get the retail one? In my case nope 🙂
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!
Now this extraordinary elixir comes in an easy-to-squeeze tube so you can control how much you apply. You also get more primer in every tube – 11 ml instead of the original 10!
Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Polyethylene, Trihydroxystearin, Triethylhexanoin, Isopropyl Lanolate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Dimethicone, PEG-40 Stearate, Propylene Carbonate, Phenoxyethanol, Synthetic Beeswax, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben
Apply before your eyeshadow for more vibrant CREASE-FREE color that lasts for 24+ hours.
The tube that I had is the revamped version which is a easy-to-squeeze tube. I like this version more than the old tube with wand as I’ve read from various blog review that the old tube tend to waste lots of primer at the bottom. I guess the wand is not long enough to scoop everything out?
A little goes a long way. I only need a teeny weeny bit on each eye lid. At first I apply in a swiping motion but the primer dries out very fast that it create some streaks and it looks awful. Then I tried dabbing and the primer look transparent on my lid.
At first it doesn’t and I prefer Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer more. I always think that UDPP is over-rated and Etude one are far more better in what it claimed and it works far more better in terms of controlling the oil secretion on my eye lid, preventing creasing as well as prolonging eyeshadow. After spending more and more days using this primer, I started to like it bit by bit.
Below is a swatch done with and without UDPP. As you can see UDPP not only prevent creasing and prolonging your eyeshadow, it also enhance eyeshadow color which means you save time layering eyeshadow. The color of your eyeshadow will just popped up!
|Without – 4 layers, With – 2 layers|
1) Tend to streak if apply with swiping motion. Dabbing is alright.
2) A little goes a long way. A tube of 11ml could last quite some time.
3) Enhance eyeshadow color saving time on layering eyeshadow.
4) Pricey. Retailing at RM75 at Sephora.
