#351; Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original)

I was looking through my archives and I realized that I have never done a review on the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. What is this?! After using this for almost a year and loving it so much, it's time the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion gets introduced to my blog.

Here is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. 
This tube contains 11ml of primer and a little goes a long way, which means the Urban Decay Primer Potion can last you for a very long time. 

Packaged in a metallic purple squeeze tube, I can foresee that it will get a little harder to get the remaining product when it is almost finished. 
This is available in Sephora and there are more shades to choose from as well as different size!

I find that this is more than enough for one entire eyelid and I chose the Original shade because my first Naked palette came with the tiny UD Primer Potion and I absolutely adore it. 

To apply, just squeeze an ample amount and pat on your lids and you are all set. 
The primer dries without caking up your lids and creases. 

I did my makeup with the Naked 1 Palette and can you tell which side is the one with the primer? :p
Btw, my lenses appear a little kooky here because I gotten a wrong side from the seller and had to get an extra pair but since it was awhile back, the lenses design has since changed... 

In this picture, it is more obvious that the right side is the side where I have applied the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, the eyeshadow really does appear more solid and defined compared to the left side.

I also made sure that I picked up the right amount when applying both side (same brushstroke per eyeshadow/same amount picked up).

Side without the UD primer potion, as you can tell there are a lot of glitter fallout from the shadows without the use of a primer potion. 

A sharper and sleeker eyeshadow look. 
This is the side with the primer on and I feel that if you were to apply the shadows to make a cat wing like I did, layering your shadow on top of a primer would be the way to go. 

My favorite way to do my shadow! :p
Anyone wants a tutorial for this?

The Urban Decay Primer Potion also allows me to keep my liquid liner on all day and prevent the liner from smudging or falling out as I have pretty oily lids from Singapore's humid weather.. Boo!

Afraid that it won't make much of a difference on lighter eyeshadow? 
This swatch came from my Naked 3 Palette Review and the ones above are the ones without any primer while the ones below are the ones with. 

The difference is striking and no wonder I won't go far distance without slapping primer on my lids. 
They make my shadow last through a shower and even after a gym session and the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion can definitely make my makeup last through the day, 8 hours and more no problem!

My completed makeup look. 

There is nothing much to hate about the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and if I were to think really hard, I guess the packaging is something that might be a bit of a problem when the product is almost finishing. 
Of course, I would definitely cut the tube in half to get all of it out. 
The price is about $30++, though I can't remember as it is a gift from my beloved sister. A little costly for a primer as you can make do with cheaper alternatives from E.L.F or NYX. However, considering all the cons, I am definitely sold on the UD Primer Potion. 

A good selfie to end off this post!
