It is not secret that Urban decay has an amazing range of great quality products and their Potion Primer is no exception. I’ve heard so much about this primer that I had to have it. A long time ago I bought the Original Potion Primer from e-bay and the result wasn’t at all satisfying, but its a huge probability that they were either expired or just not right. Then as I was in London apart from the Naked 2 palette I had to buy the primer of course, however this time I bought it in eden. I really like the yellow-toned colour and that it’s matte(which reminds me to that of a concealer), I find it ideal as a base colour.
The aim of the product is to prevent creasing and helps your eyeshadow stay all day long and also increase the color vibrancy of the eyeshadow. It truly does what it says, it didn’t crease on me and it worked wonders on my skin tone and the eyeshadow truly does last all day long. I have used this primer for weddings and photoshoots and they all were impressed how their make-up stayed put all day long. It truly makes the eye-shadow more vibrant, even if it’s a cheap shadow. If your skin has pink undertones I do suggest Sin instead of Eden as this might be a bit too yellowish for your taste.
Like the name Potion Primer, the packaging looks like a potion bottle which I find to be utterly cute. I have seen this primer in a tube like mine but there might be also available with a doe foot applicator.
- Good quality and cute packaging
- Prevents creasing
- Eye-shadow stays all day long thanks to this primer
- This beauty costs £16 which is probably about 19 or 20 euros, this might be seen as pricey but seriously it’s worth every penny.
- The only con I can think of it that I might not be suitable for someone with pink undertones but other than that this is just perfect.
Will I ever buy this product again? Definitely, if I ever run out of this primer I will have to figure a way to repurchase this beauty and probably the rest of the Urban Decay Primer Potion collection.
Do I recommend it? For sure, I personally think this is a must have especially for those special occasions where you need your make up to look great all day long like weddings or other celebrations.
