Beauty Review: Eden Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer


Urban Decay has a vast variety of eyeshadow primers.  There’s the original, Eden, Sin, Anti-Aging, and Greed.  There’s a sale going on for Greed on their website (here); original price is $20, on sale for $8.  The one I am reviewing is Eden.

You might be thinking that $20 is a lot to pay for .37 fl oz, but it lasts you forever.  I’ve had mine for over a year and I use it quite often; you really only need a small small amount for it to work it’s magic.  You can even purchase the original formula in a smaller, travel size for $12 (here).

As you can see, it doesn’t crease and the eyeshadow looks stunning (woah, close ups of my eye)!  I find that by using the primer, I can blend my eyeshadow easier, and it helps my eyeshadow last all day.  Without the primer, my eyeshadow fades throughout the day and by the end of a long day, it hardly looks like I have any on.

You can see the creases that I have, but you can tell that my eyeshadow hasn’t creased or budged.  If I close my eyes, the crease lines practically disappear, as to when I don’t use primer, you can still visibly tell that there is a crease there.

Overall, I really love this product.  I’ve used it for over a year now and I still have at least half of it left; or at least that’s what it feels like.  I think I would recommend getting the travel size unless you will be using it on a daily because I’m still trying to use it up and in the past few months, I’ve been using it quite often.

Tips & Tricks:  You can use this for eyeliner too!  I use the primer on my bottom lash line when I apply an eyeliner there.  It helps it to not smudge and last a lot longer too!

If you want, you can use Eden as a highlighter or eyeshadow depending on your skin tone.  For me, it doesn’t suit my liking as either, but I think it would look wonderful on those darker or lighter than me; this eyeshadow primer color is too close to my skin color.

When you haven’t used it in a while or you notice that when you squeeze, an oil like substance comes out, close it, and tap it / hit it against your hand to mix the product.

Readers, have any of you tried this product out before?  Which eyeshadow primer would you recommend for me to try?  Let me know in the comments below!

❤ Always,

  1. I usually use the original UD Primer Potion. I’ve always been curious about the others, but never given them a shot. I’ve also tried Etude House’s eye primer and liked that. Any drugstore eye primers I’ve tried didn’t work for me. I have super oily lids.


    1. Oh, maybe I should try Etude House. I’ve heard a lot of great things about their products. I don’t have one, or at least don’t know of any places here that sell them… 😦 I’ve been hesitant to try other eye primers because this one has been my first and never failed me over the years and I think it’s time to step out of my comfort zone.
