40 Days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 4, Urban Decay Primer Potion Lotion
This product is beloved by so many friends, bloggers and makeupalley members. It inspires great love among all beauty addicts and junkies.
So it might shock you when I say that I can not stand this product.
Bring on the backlash.
I gave it a good test run for several months. I would apply it in the morning and periodically whip out my mirror throughout the day to check on it's progress. I asked co-workers what they thought.
It was a bust...every single day.
My shadow would fade and lose all its oomph. It would crease and flake.
I did better with no primer at all.
Instead of giving up like a normal person...I insisted on making this darn tube work. I did not want to throw in the towel since it appeared to be a holy grail institution for so many people. As God as my witness, I was not going to be the only person it did not work for.
I fought this war with the primer and never won a battle.
My eyelids are not extraordinary creatures. They suffer no problems with excessive oil or dryness. They can handle anything I throw on them like glitter or hot wax.
They manage fairly well with just a smidge of Smashbox primer mixed in with my concealer. This applies less tacky then the Primer Potion and provides better results.
Primer Potion is a sheer nude eye base based in an adorable but wildly irksome genie-like tube. This design actually traps quite a bit of product.
Both Clumps of Mascara and Beauty Addict have posted on the issue.
Make sure to visit Clumps to see just how much.
It will make your jaw drop.
I realize that I am quite alone in this negative verdict. The MUA score on this product is a 91%, which is very high.
Please delurk if you have any disatisfaction with this product. Make me feel not so alone in my disappointment with Primer Potion.
Lovers feel free to post your gushing and love in the comments too.
Just try to not pour salt in my wounds.....
