Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Review

Today I have a review on the 'legendary' Urban Decay Primer Potion. Everyone and their cat has heard of this eyeshadow primer, and it's probably the most well known and sought after. This is the original (which is a sheer nude), but it also comes in three other tinted shades. A full size of UDPP contains 0.37oz of product and costs $24CDN, but I have a smaller 0.2oz size here.

Before I share my thoughts on this primer let's check out its description on the Sephora website:

"Packaged in a new squeeze tube with a precise needle nose, Eyeshadow Primer Potion is an ultra-sheer, totally nude base that glides onto the skin. The original, award-winning formula disappears instantly and is the ultimate eye prep for smoother, more vibrant shadow and all-day wear with absolutely no creasing."
I'll just cut to the chase - UDPP lives up to its hype. It blends out smoothly and creates a lovely base, helps intensify your shadows, and keeps them crease-free. Compared to say, Too Faced's Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer, this has a thicker consistency and a bit more pigment to it which helps to neutralize the eyelids. The squeeze tube and needle nose dispenser also make it easy to control how much product you get, as you only need a small dab for each lid. Overall, Urban Decay's Primer Potion is great and I really enjoy using it.
Have you used UDPP? Did it live up to the hype for you, or leave you disappointed? Let me know in the comments!
