Urban Decay Primer Potions – Anti aging, Original and Sin

Our # 1 best-selling product in a NEW easy-to-squeeze tube! Apply before your eyeshadow for more vibrant CREASE-FREE color that lasts for 24 hours. This is it – THE most legendary primer in the beauty industry. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is coveted by makeup artists and makeup junkies alike because it guarantees more vibrant eyeshadow that lasts for 24 hours and NEVER CREASES! Once you experience its powers (plus how smoothly it glides on – an added bonus) you’ll never want to live without it. Original formula dries down invisibly, while Eden, Sin and Greed are shades that can also be worn as shadows or highlighters!

Primer potion has been one of my all time favorite makeup items. Also it was one of the first items I purchased when I moved to USA.  Now I use it daily and every time I tell myself “How did I ever do my eye makeup without this magic potion?”.

6 years ago I started using just Original.  It is basic primer that glides on easily, evens out skin tone on your lids but very lightly and keeps EVERYTHING on whatever you apply on top of it – pencil, liquid, gel, cream eyeliner… any kind of eyeshadow – powder, cream, gel to powder…

Honestly I have never had a problem  of creasing when I applied Primer potion first. EVER. Although my eyelids are dry and not hooded.

You need tiny bit amount of product – no need to pile it. Tiny dab spread across the eyelid – I usually do from lash line to my eyebrows or only on the lids if I am wearing eyeliner only.  I prefer pressing it into the skin instead of rubbing and pulling the sensitive skin in the eye area.

My experience is that Original can work on both oily and dry eyelids but I have heard great feedback especially from women with oilier lids.

The second one I tried and since then it stayed in my makeup kit was Sin. Oh beautiful champagne color! You can wear it on it’s own as a soft wash of color all over the lid or as your regular primer. It works beautifuly under beige, golden and champagne colors like the ones in Naked 1 and 2 palettes. Also it intensifies shimmer in the eyeshadow. You can even use it as a cheek highlighter.
It holds eyeshadow as well as Original one.

Meet your new best friend (with benefits). Get 24 hours of vibrant, crease-free shadow and minimize the appearance of wrinkles in 8 weeks. This formula not only locks shadow in place to give you vibrant, crease-free color that lasts all day; it also measurably improves the signs of aging over time. High-tech ingredients fight wrinkles and improve tone and texture, while optical blurring pigments create a subtle, soft-focus effect that instantly wakes up tired eyes and minimizes the appearance of redness, crepiness and other imperfections. 


My latest addition is Anti aging primer potion – with added skincare benefits it’s actually heaven sent for dry eyelids like mine. It has creamier texture than the Original and a tiny bit more of a color – you can’t really tell when you blend them out but it does blur and even out  redness and broken capillaries slightly better than the original. With it’s creamier texture it holds drier powder eyeshadow textures better. I can’t speak of lifting firming and other anti aging properties since I thankfully have none of those issues yet. 



A little goes a long way and tube lasts me about a year. They have changed packaging of these twice so far. They listened to their customers and made squeeze out tube. I was recently told by UD employees that they will keep the tube but it will have applicator on top.
Urban Decay primer potions retail for 20$ while Anti aging retails for 24$
