Review: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Greed

Since I have been splurging on so many beauty and make up goodies you'll probably see a fair few reviews coming up!

My next binge was on Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

If you're anything like me and spend hours watching YouTube tutorials and reading beauty blogs then you've probably heard of this little potion already. I decided to try it and see what all the fuss was about. I managed to get it for £5 from ebay.
The PP's come in 4 different 'types' and Greed is their golden shimmer shade.

My only reservations with getting this one is that the shade of the primer might interfere with the colour of eyeshadow I'm wanting to wear. 

The left is my naked eye and the right is with the primer potion. I applied it on my lid and inner tear duct with a flat eyeshadow brush just to really blend it in.
The formula is lightweight, non greasy and absorbs really quickly. I was very impressed!
The goldy colour looked quite bright on my finger but was actually very similar to my skin tone when it was on my eye. I'd say the only noticeable difference is that my lid now has a slight shimmer to it.

This is my eye with shadow and finished with eyeliner and mascara on the right.
The product was really easy to apply and the primer didn't interfere with the application nor colour of the eyeshadows I was using.
The only thing I would say is that my shimmery shadow seemed to have an ever so slightly frostier finish to it. But it was something that was barely noticeable.

In terms of 'long lasting' my eyeshadow usually melts off my face after about 4- 6 hours, but this was still vibrant in colour 12 hours later. I only started noticing slight creasing probably about 9 hours after application. Which I think is an amazing feat!

Overall I would definitely recommend this for people who have oily lids or if you want your eyeshadow to look more vibrant with amazing staying power. There's definitely a reason this product is raved about! In terms of the shade I think it would definitely suit all skin tones. But if you're very pale or very dark, I recommend being a bit more selective in its use as it may interfere with the colours you're using. As for people with my skin tone (or brown skinned women) this is a very neutral colour for us.

Has anyone else tried this?

If you have any comments, queries or suggestions then let me know!
