I have really weird skin, makeup just comes off me. My battle with any type of makeup is keeping it on. I know I’m not alone in this as there are so many brands of primers out there but generally nothing lasts on my face — especially eyeliner. The only way it doesn’t smudge, smear or disappear is by using this beauty of a product (excuse the pun) Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Now this has been around for ages I know, but I’ve recently bought the newer tube (see below) which you apply and rub in with your finger. Now prior to this I was using the tube which had a wand with a lip gloss style brush..why did they change this? I have no idea but why fix something that ain’t broke? Anyhow the product is still brilliant despite it being called eyeshadow primer, I use it whether I’m wearing eyeshadow or not, as it keeps my eyeliner on all day. If I don’t use it my eyeliner disappears by late afternoon. Most importantly it DOESN’T CREASE YOUR EYE SHADOW!
I have tried cheaper primers but I find this is the best. The great thing about this primer is that it comes in three different colours so you can choose according to your shade of skin — for me ‘Original’ works best.
Score: 9/10 — dropped a mark because of the change in application
Cost: £16 for an 11ml tube.
