Urban Decay Primer Potion Test

I received the Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box for my birthday and it came with a mini primer potion. I'd never used a primer potion before and didn't think it could make such a big difference!
The colours I have tested below are (From left to right): Half Baked, YDK and Twice Baked. These are my favourites from the set because they're smooth and pigmented (A few others contain glitter which I'm not found of.)

Top photo: The eyeshadows swatched with primer potion and without. As you can see, the eyeshadows with primer potion are more pigmented.
Middle photo: After wiping them off of my arm with considerable force. The swatches without primer potion used are nearly gone whereas the ones with primer potion are still intact.
Bottom photo: After wiping off with a facial wipe. Swatches without primer potion have disappeared but you can still see the primer potion swatches.

I am so impressed! I think I'm going to buy a primer from ELF as it will be cheaper than Urban Decay. If I don't like it, I'll purchase the Urban Decay one :)



  1. the elf mineral primer is a lot better than udpp - well in my opinion :)x

  2. I love my urban decay PP and find it lasts forever, but I also want to try the elf one too - will wait for your review!

  3. the primer from elf is less recommendable if you have oily lids.


  4. Wow thats amazing first time Ive heard of 'primer potion'

    muaah x

  5. I have tried both ELF and UDPP. UDPP is a clear winner for me. ELF doesn't even come close. Again, this is just my opinion and I look forward to seeing your review xxx
