Questions & Answers for Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube - Original

Question
Best way to apply this product?
I'm debating between this and Smashbox's Lid Primer, but was surprised when I saw the new packaging for this one. I'm a little bit confused about the application of this product now that it doesn't have the wand.

I recommend using a finger for the best application. It is a smooth emollient formula and works best with clean fingers.

I've found if I use my finger I might as well forget it. No matter how much or little I blend it ends up gross and clumpy and I usually start over.
I've also found a brush doesn't do much good either.
The best method to keep it from caking is to use a sponge. I go with make up forever's blue sponge. It's a bit pricey for a sponge but durable and I use it for almost all makeup application, especially for this (and any really) primer.

I have found that the easiest and fastest way to apply this product is by patting it all over the eye lid with a clean finger. I just squeeze a small amount onto the tip of my finger and then apply to the entire eye lid up to the brow.

It seemed too thick at first so I put it in my palm & added just a little water and applied with my thin eyeliner brush. It sounds like it is supposesd to be applied right from the tube but I wasn't very good at applying it that way. May I add that I am 70 years old and that might be the reason why.

I had the previous version before and thougt I wouldn't like it when I bought the new one but I actually like it bett! U get much more product out in the end! You can squeeze it directly on you eye but I prefer to put a little on my finger and rub it on my eye ( u would have used yout finger to blend it out anyway.) or u could use a brush if you prefer.

I have tried both and I personally like the UDPP much better. Application wise (there are 2 ways that i do it): number 1- put a tiny bit(a little goes a VERY long way) on the tip of your CLEAN finger and pat it GENTLY onto your eyelid; number2- carefully squeeze a tiny bit onto your eyelid and gently pat it out. The application is basically the same as putting it on with the wand i mean your still patting out the primer on your lid. Oh and plus with the squeeze tube you will get 10% more product than u would get with the original packaging! Hope this helped! :)

I had a jumbo squeeze tube of this stuff a while back. It was really hard to get out of the tube. I squeezed and squeezed until i thought the thing was just going to explode open. Anyways, I finally get enough out of the tube and it was kind of dry. I didn't know if this is normal for it. I find myself out of the Greed sample and need to get more. Is that what i should expect of the primer tubes??

The other containers with the wand were harder to get all the product out of. These you can knead the product back together if it tries to separate at the end of the tube. May be a bit hard to get out but seems better than the wand applicator to me!

no, there must have been something wrong with the product or it had dried up. You barely have to squeeze to get the primer out and you only have to use a tiny little bit. The Urban Decay Potion tube is great and so is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I own both but I just got the Urban Decay Primer Potion yesterday and like it more. If you have a problem like the one you had again I'd definitely return it for a new one :) good luck!

Hi detroitlola123. The new squeeze tube should keep the primer from drying out so the consistency is smooth and creamy. If you receive one that is dry, please contact the store regarding an exchange.

I tend to have oily eyelids, and using the UD primer my shadow stayed all day through napping and work. It also makes mineral shadows stay put all day. I found that regular moisturizers made my skin oily, my make-up would just slide off my face, so I use Bio-Oil on my face in the morning, let it absorb for about 5 mins, then apply my make-up, and my skin is not oily (other than my lids-but maybe it'll keep away crowsfeet), well moisturized and wrinkle free.

If you apply the primer to clean eyelids, you shouldn't have any problems! The primer lets the eyeshadow stick to it, which also makes it easier to take the eyeshadow off...but it won't mix with your eyeshadow so it shouldn't look oily at all-I use it only on nights out and my eyes look the exact same at the end of the night as to when I left!

I wear mine every day so it never sits around for a year. It's definitely not normal, and you should throw it out. In fact, you really shouldn't keep any makeup longer than about six months (especially creams) because of the bacteria that can form. With non-cream, you can wipe it with antiseptic wipes to clean.

I would probably throw it out if there's a residue on your eyelid-and the fact that it's a year old. I don't know if there's a shelf life w/that. I have been using this for about 6 weeks and don't have that problem but since I use it every day, I expect my tube to run out way before that.

All Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potions will keep your eyeshadow staying on and looking fresh all day! The Sin and Eden shades can be put on and used as primer alone with eyeshadow on top, or can even be used as your eyeshadow!

I wear this primer for at least ten hours a day and by the time I take it off it still looks like I just did my makeup. I recommend the original color because it is a nude shade and doesn't interfere with the color of your eyeshadow.

I personally prefer the original one. It does stay all day and doesn't crease. Just be sure to apply a nice even coat and let it dry before you apply eyeshadow. I can't live without this.

I just bought Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube. It definitely stays on all day. Very easy to use. Eye shadow doesn't crease or fade. It's a great product.

Stays ALL day sweetie!! I have only tried the original but I absolutely LOVE it! Also, it does not crease so your eyeshadow will stay exactly where you put it. My only suggestion it to start with a little and then build up if you need to. Hope that helps!

Question
How to apply this product? It's not working for me!
I've had this for a few months but throughout the summer I never really wore eyeshadow so I wasn't using it often. Lately I have been applying a wash of shimmery light eyeshadow all over the lid and it has creased by the end of the school day! (about 8 hours)

I do not have oily skin, quite dry actually, and I have been careful not to use eye cream on my lids or to apply too much product but it still isn't working! I am very frustrated because this is an expensive product and if it doesn't stop creasing, I have no idea what will.

Please help me!

- if it makes any difference, I have deep-ish set eyes (almost semi-hooded lids) and eyeliner transfers easily on me

My way:
- clean dry hands, clean dry eyelids
- put a little (1-2 grains of rice) on the tip of my middle finger
- smoosh both middle fingers together, so I have the same amount on each hand.
- ready, set, go! close eyes and dab in the centre of the crease, and a little back and forth
- quickly run each fingertip from inside corner of the eye to outside corner, working up and down so my whole eyelids are covered from lashes to eyebrows
- did I say work quickly? spread it around before it dries up and resists you.
- once it's not gliding around anymore (5 seconds), pat eyelids to press it into place, I don't think this does anything but gives it another few seconds to dry before I open my eyes and risk crinkling it up in my eyelid crease
- proceed with face lotion, foundation, concealer, and eye makeup as usual

I hate using my fingers for makeup, but for me, no sponge or brush would make a thin, even layer.

Make sure you are applying it generously. I had this same problem at first, but when I just put a little more on, it seemed to keep the shadow from creasing longer. Also, try putting the shadow on after the product is completely dry and after it has been set with a regular face powder. If that doesn't work, try doing the opposite and putting the shadow on when the primer is still a little wet, and hopefully that will cause the shadow to stick to it a little more, so when it dries, it will stay in place with the primer. I have done it both ways, and they both have worked for me, so I would suggest trying that to see if it helps. Also, you said your skin is a little dry--try applying the primer after you have moisturized and when you do moisturize, make sure you gently pat some on your lids, and below your brows. That step is probably the most important, and has helped me the most with getting the primer to stay. Put the moisturizer on, let it dry, then put the primer potion on, and put the shadow on. Hope this helped-good luck! (:

You might want to try putting your eye cream on first, then letting it dry for a good 10mins before you put on the primer and your eye shadow. Good luck!

I have very oily skin that just ruins eye shadow, and this works well for me. I have the old tube and wand. I just take the wand out, swipe it on my eyelid, then rub in, up to my brow bone, then repeat for the other eye. I let it dry for just 30 seconds or so.

I also have dry skin and more deep set eyes. My only advice is to apply the primer from your lash line all the way to your brow bone and to wait for the primer to dry before trying to put on your eye shadow. Hope this helps!

I find that applying it with my fingertips works really well. I just squeeze a bit onto my ring finger and blend it all over my eyelid, all the way up to the browbone. Then I make sure to close my eyes for a few seconds to let it set a bit before I apply the eye shadow.
If you're having trouble with it creasing, I would suggest making sure you're not using too much primer - a little goes a long way!
I hope this helps!

I would make sure that you aren't using too much. You barely need any at all, just enough to cover your eye lid. I might also give it a minute to dry - even though it doesn't really need it - but it might help make sure you have a really solid base to apply your eyeshadow. Hope that helps!

Make sure that when you apply put it all the way up to your brow bone and allow it to dry before doing anything with your shadow. It takes a few seconds, but it keeps the primer itself from creasing.

The best piece of advice that I could give you is to put a small amout. about the size of a small pea (if that makes sense) and put half of that on one lid, and the other half on the other. If you put too much primer on, just keep spreading it out on your lid, it will blend in to your skin anyway. That's all I could tell you. Hope this works. :)

I just put a tiny dab on my finger(some people prefer a brush) and apply it evenly over my lid before putting shadow or liner on. You only need a very small amount, otherwise it won't apply evenly and neither will your make up.

I always apply after foundation but I put very little foundation on my eyes, I find too much foundation on the lid can cause creasing.

I applied it after foundation, right before eyeshadow. I do not typically use foundation on my eyelids, and the primer is nude tinted, which provides a nice base.

Doesn't matter. It really just depends on how your apply your makeup on. If you like to start off with your face, then it would be "after your foundation."
If you like to start off with your eye makeup, then it would be "before your foundation."
