Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden

I only started using an eye shadow primer/base around 18 months ago but since then I have rarely ever applied eye shadow without applying a primer first.

As the tube of Benefit Stay Don't Stray was coming to an end and I fancied trying something else I purchased Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden to see how it compared.

There are 4 Primer Potions to choose from - Original, Eden, Sin and Greed.

Original – Has an invisible finish.
Sin –  Has a Champagne shimmer.
Eden – Has a yellow/cream matte finish.
Greed –  Has a Gold shimmer.

I opted for Eden as I wanted the primer to double as a base to even out the colour in my eye area.

The primer potion comes in a squeezy tube container and has a screw lid making it easy to dispense.

The product is soft and creamy to apply and the 11ml tube will last ages as a tiny amount will go a long way.

What UDPP does - For me it even outs my eye area quite nicely and as I am yellow toned it works perfectly with my colouring, this then provides the perfect base to start applying my powder eye shadows with. It makes the eye shadow shades appear brighter and more vivid. Smooths the appearance of the eye shadow and makes them last quite simply for hours, so late at night when I return home my eye shadow looks as if I have just applied it. I love this stuff and would definitely repurchase. 

My eyelids are a little greasy and the primer potion provides a really nice base for the shadow to cling. However, for some reason it doesn't really work with cream based shadows.. I find that they actually work better without the primer potion.

Eden is very light and for this reason it won't suit darker skin tones as it will make your eye area look pasty.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion costs £14.50 for an 11ml tube


  1. I love Urban Decay primers, have to say they are best I have used.

  2. I might give this one a try! I use Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer and now won't use eyeshadows without it. x

  3. I must try these out. I'm using one from Lorac at the moment that works well but have heard way too many good things about Urban Decay to not try them out.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
