Urban Decay Primer Potion

So I am not going to flog a dead donkey here, you will have heard of/used Urban Decays primer potion unless you have been living under a rock. I just wanted to share my experience with the product.

I will explain why I haven't used an eyeshadow primer up until now, I have never had any trouble with oily eyelids or shadow creasing so I have never felt the need to use a primer. But as I have been getting a little older I have noticed my eyeshadow creasing a little more by the end of the day and it looks horrible. I got a small tube of the primer potion last year with my naked palette and it has been shoved away at the bottom of a make-up bag, until last week that is.
I had looked at the eyeshadow that had fallen into the creases on my eyelids and thought "urgh god I have got to do something about this" so I gave the primer a try. I seriously had no expectations about it, but the end of the day rolled around and my eyeshadow was absolutely perfect, not a single smudge or crease! Amazing!

Not everyone will need a eyeshadow primer, if you have no issues with your eyeshadow creasing or fading then I don't see any point in layering on a product you don't need. But if you do experience any of those problems or you want to wear a bright colour that you want to make the most of, then I really recommend it.

Here is the difference it can make to the look of your eyeshadow colour, it of course gives a good base for the colour to cling to so it stays in place but it will also make the colour stand out a little more, think about the way you would use a white primer before painting a piece of furniture or wall, it really makes the colour pop. You can see how much darker the colour looks on the right, the exact same amount of product was used each time, so it could make your favourite eyeshadow go a lot further as well. I also noticed how much harder it was to get the primed shadow off with make-up remover, this goes to show the longevity it will give you throughout the day.

I may spread my primer wings a little now and try a few different brands and see how I get on. Can you recommend any that you really love?
