Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer is a Love Potion

Well... it's certainly got me falling in love with it.

In a nutshell, it's uhmayzing. But if you want to find out how I ended up buying this little love potion, read on!

It's no secret that I really love my MUFE Aqua Creams, but close to a year of using my #15 almost daily, I must admit I've gotten a wee bit (only a weeee bit) bored with having the same base shade for my eye makeup.

You see, I have pretty oily lids, and many of my other cream shadows weren't quite holding up their end of the bargain. Without a primer underneath (or my Aqua Cream) I won't have makeup left on my lids by the end of the day. Just one greasy creasy mess. Okay, maybe not a big crease, but there'll still be a crease. And I'd much rather have my eyeshadow and liner all still in place, thank you very much.

So what's a girl (who didn't have a primer) to do, but continue using her beloved Aqua Cream for a base? Believe me, that one's got a massive dent in it now.

Until I remembered that along with my original Naked palette, was this wee little tube of UD's cult primer potion. I dug through my pile of makeup, found it, tried it, and got hooked. My eye makeup is now unbudgeable. Case in point, my eye makeup stayed crease-free a good 14 hours today, right up to 12am, before I took it all off with makeup remover.

I bought the primer in the Original formula - it's a nude shade that just disappears when applied onto the lids. Just what I want.

The new packaging is a squeeze tube, as opposed to the old bottle packaging with a doe-foot applicator. The new packaging definitely makes more sense for product use and better hygiene.

At RM75 for an 11ml tube, it's not exactly cheap, but it really really works. And as you only need a teeny bit per application, it should last for quite a while.

Conclusion: It works. I love it. Highly recommended. I love it.

PS: Sorry I've been MIA for a while. Just felt like I needed a good break from the blog, but I'm glad to be back! Have a great weekend, lovelies!

Up until this very moment, the eye primer I depend on for super oily lids is Urban Decay Primer Potion! I love that they changed packaging as I don't need to cut the genie bottle open (which is a huge hassle)! :D

I am in love with Urban Decay eye primer ever since I was introduced to it. They just make my eye makeup days oh-so easy. Their packaging is better too.

Stay pretty everyone!
