URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIMER

 

This little primer has been an absolute god send! Honestly I don’t even know why I went without using primer until now! The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer goes on like a thick cream and dries up almost instantly to create an even base, ready for your eyeshadow application.

Product Details: Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer

 

WHY I LIKE IT?

This little gem has changed the way I look at eyeshadow and it just brings out the natural pigment of each shade to make it look much more vibrant and it stay’s in place all day! I’ve used this in the most warmest of conditions and it still stays perfectly in place with no creases in sight or colour fade. My skin is oily so I’d expect this to not work as well in the heat, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well this performed and kept my eyeshadow in perfect condition.

Before using primer, I used to remember working for ages getting my shadow just right, for it to then crease and loose it’s appearance over a couple of hours or even less! However with the use of this it’s made my shadow stay in place all day and still look perfect at the end of the day. It’s definitely something every make-up enthusiast needs in there make-up drawer! Finding the perfect balance when it comes to having oily skin can be somewhat of an on going task but this gives a really matte finish on my skin and doesn’t look shiny or feel greasy when applied.

 

WHAT I DISLIKE ABOUT IT?

I have no faults with this but non make-up wise it can stain your carpets, so be warned! I accidentally got some on my carpet and it was really hard to remove, almost so that I couldn’t get it completely removed. Speaking of stubborn stains, I’d also recommend getting a specific eye make-up remover specially designed for removing eye make-up as this really sets your eye make-up, making it more difficult to remove with your regular cleanser.

 

HOW DO I APPLY IT?

This is the original formula and applies smoothly onto the skin in a nude, invisible shade that just blends effortlessly with the skin! I do however love the Eden formula as this contains tiny shimmer particles that also work as highlighters/shadows. Again Eden, Sin and Greed create matte finish but do have the shimmer finish, which I personally love, where as the original formula comes without. I normally apply this straight from the tube using my finger tips to gently apply the product and create an even base for my eyeshadow, but you could use a small eyeshadow brush if you prefer.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Product Shelf Life: 12 Months

    • Ohh me too! I think I’ll be sticking to this one for a long time haha 😉 xx

  • Aw that’s not good! I find the packaging okay but maybe your right! I once had an accident with it and spilled product on my carpet and it stained 🙁 mentioned this in the post, but it can be a trouble to get out xx

    • Wow 8 years!! That’s commitment ha,ha! I’m loyal to good products too, and don’t really switch much if I like the results but since doing blogging you always feel the need to try new brands/products so it’s always great in that way but this is one I’ll definitely be sticking with. The dispenser is great for me but like I mentioned in the post I spilled product on my carpet and it was a stubborn stain to remove so definitely one to watch 😉 x

  • Haven’t tried this primer in so long but I do remember how good it was! Thank you for the carpet thing, if I do re-buy this I’ll have to remember that!

    This sounds great, I really want to try it. Until now I`ve tried 2 eyeshadow primers: loved the one from Benefit, hated the Smashbox one. This is such a cult beauty product though, I`m sure I`d love it.

    • I’ll need to try other primers but just love this so much and always feel loyal to brands I love that I don’t tend to switch but being a beauty blogger It’s become more relevant to try new things and share opinions <3
