Now this little potion has been around for a while, and I’ve tried it before but never written a review because it wasn’t really the best product for me. Now don’t get me wrong, it did all the things it promised but I found that the formula emphasised the crepiness of my lids as well. I didn’t feel that it was a trade I wanted to make, more depth of colour and staying power but more crepiness. Nope. Not for me I thought – and popped my sample in a drawer.
So when I was sent the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion again for review I thought I’d pass it to a friend at work to try. Now when you hear what she thought about the product you’ll see I learned a lesson, or was reminded of one anyway, and that is a product might not work for you or your skin type but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great product. Here’s what she said:
“I’m going to sound like an infomercial now but OMG I literally cannot believe the efficacy of this product!
Usually by lunchtime my eyeshadow has migrated into the creases of my eyelids so I’ll reapply then, and the same before I go to my (Tai Chi) class in the evening. Yesterday I didn’t need to reapply at lunchtime OR before I left in the evening, and when I got home the eyeshadow still basically looked like it did when I put it on in the morning. Unbelievable. Without it, if I hadn’t reapplied during the day there would be basically nothing left by the end of the day.
So I am completely taken aback and already addicted. Once the current tube runs out I will definitely have to buy another!”
Now since this happened I’ve discovered a couple of things. One is that Urban Decay make an anti-aging version of the potion – so clearly that has to be the next thing I try. But also, I returned to my original sample and gave it a try and …. it’s not making my eyelids more crepey anymore. Not sure what that’s about – maybe my eye cream’s working better or I’ve applied it better or differently but anyway it works!
The original Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion comes with a built in applicator. the formula gives up to 24-hour, no crease shadow, vibrant color and smooth application. It glides on smoothly, blends with all skin tones and dries invisibly. It costs £16.00 here. If you haven’t tried it yet, I’d say you should give it a go!
