The Urban Decay Primer Potion is perhaps the best eye primer I’ve tried. It’s right above the NARS Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Base (which I can’t get to work on my lids, strangely), the Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, Benefit’s Lemon Aid (which is great upon application but creases as well), and tons of other eye bases like cream shadows and such. This is just the best, basic one for me.
I do like the MAC Paint Pots also, but the ones I have are shimmery, and if I want a neutral base, my go-to is the UDPP. A great thing about this is also its applicator. No doe-foot unsanitariness here!
I bought the PP twin pack in Original and Sin from a Friends and Family Sale eons ago, and I realized I haven’t spoken about these wonders yet.
The original looks like an opaque pinky cream here, but it blends out into an invisible base. Sin is a beautiful champagne color with a finish that reminds me of LUSH’s Sophisticated.
Here, I am wearing UDPP in Sin all over the mobile lid, and I applied MAC’s Mystery on the crease.
I’m inclined to say that I prefer the original formula, just because of its useability. While Sin is neutral enough, it still has the factor of a shimmer that will alter the original color of the shadow in one way or another. Both are beautiful to have, but if I have to choose one, I’d definitely go with the original Primer Potion.
