The Pick of the Primers..

Having oily skin, primer for me, is an absolute must-have product.

There are a lot of great primers out but in general, I think Urban Decay tend to outshine every other brand when it comes to locking a product in place.

About 6 months ago, I decided to invest in the Urban Decay Naked palette and with it, came a mini of the Primer Potion. At the time, I didn't think much of it. However, I decided to give it a go and I instantly fell in love.

I've used a lot of skin primers before and some of them have been glorified moisturisers however, I cannot explain the difference in the performance of the eyeshadow after applying this. In the picture below, is the exact same eyeshadow applied to my hand. The swatch on the left is without primer, and on the right is the shadow with primer. It is obvious the difference in performance.

The primer itself makes the shadow look more pigmented and in general, a better quality. It's the best primer I've ever used and I would not use any other primer for my eyes as it has everything I need in a primer. It's locks in the products, lasts for 12+ hours on the lids, and is a lovely texture. Another benefit is that a little of this primer, goes a long way! I've had 2 minis and they've lasted me 6 months and aren't nearly empty!

Overall, this primer is definitely my favourite eye primer and I would recommend it to all skin types, including oily (Like myself!).

Have you tried this primer?
