Give a girl the right Eye Primer and she can Conquer The World!

For a good few weeks now I've been meaning to buy the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. About two weeks ago I went into the Urban Decay Makeup Counter in Debenhams and just had a browse around while I was there trying out their eyeshadows, lipglosses, their foundations, basically everything. 
There was nothing I could find fault with apart from their lipglosses.
I dont know why but i hate lipglosses that come in a squeezy tube. I find that they just attract dirt, dirt as in little hairs and things, that might fall off makeup brushes or whatever. I was quite disappointed as they came with a really fancy looking lid, and when I took it off it was like two completely different products. I should have really taken a picture of it but at the time I didnt think on. 
I went there again today to finally make my purchase and I just couldnt seem to find the bottle I was looking for, thankfully there was a very helpful lady working at the counter this time, (last time I was there, there was not an employee in sight and I had to go over to a different makeup counter to make my purchases).
Anyway, I'm not sure how many of you are aware of this but Urban Decay have actually made some changes with regards to their packaging of some of their products.
Many of you will recognise this bottle as being one of the more popular Urban Decay products...
However people were finding that the bottles were smashing far too easily when people were dropping them, I myself have butter fingers. So now... I shall take this opportunity to present to you the brand new packaging for the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion...... [insert drum role]...
 As you can see it comes in a squeezy tube but thankfully with aspects of the old bottle as in my opinion it was the bottle that made it so appealing. This new squeezy tube offers you '10% more primer'. I think it is very practical because it means you can squeeze every last drop out of it. This retails at £14.50.
The next thing I'd like to show you is the same primer but in a gold shimmer colour. I cannot tell you how in love with this I am. The gold would work so amazingly with a night time look, acting as a brow shimmer as well as a eyeshadow base.
I purposely left the packaging on one of them just so you know what to look for if you are interested in buying this product. I must stress that i literally put a small blob of this on my sisters hand and there was alot of excess so it should last you a while! And for £14.50 thats exactly what you want!
Hope this helps for anyone who like myself was hoping that this primer wasnt just living off an un-certified hype. But i can guarantee it is definitely worth the money!

Also, just as an added extra thing which may or may not be of any use to you is the sharpener I also picked up. Ive found that everyday normal sharpeners dont tend to work on eyeliners which have that different kind of texture to them which are used to create that smouldering look, and it can sometimes ruin it which recently happened with a new maybelline pencil i bought and had to replace! This retails at £7 but works sooo wonderfully, nothing that I've found with a pencil sharpener before.


  1. Im quite angry at myself for waiting so long to get it and wasting my time with other eye primers! This is the only eye primer that need ever be in a girls makeup bag!

  2. I agree with you! UDPP has basically, saved my dream lol. I once even think to quite on makeup because of creasing problem. I live in a very hot country and it takes no time for your makeup to crease but UDPP is amazing or let's just say, MAGICAL!

  3. I've only briefly tried it in the awful old packaging (such a waste of product)........would like to give the sin shade ago especially as its now in a squeezy tube genius! I reckon it would look pretty with slick of black liner :) I also use the MAC paint pots as a base painterly & bare study are good if your ever looking for an alternative. xx
