Repurchased Products: Urban Decay Primers


Primer isn't something I use every day, but these two are definitely something I like to have around for times when I do.


The Eyeshadow Primer Potion, I use on quite a regular basis. I don't have particularly oily eyelids so for a normal day without make-up or a day with make-up but just running a few errands I don't tend to bother with it, it would just be an extra, unnecessary step in the morning routine. However, for days when I have to be out for a long time, or a very busy hectic day it is excellent. Over the last few years of using this product I have tested it out in many different situations. It is absolutely wonderful for nights out when you maybe apply a little more eyeshadow and make things look that bit more special. It lasts the whole night with any creasing and I wouldn't dream of getting ready for a special occasion without it. It comes in four different shade, I have only ever used Original, it blends out to be a lovely match for my skin and I feel gives a more true look to eyeshadows, especially lighter shades. 


I don't use face primer all that often, my foundation stays on well enough for day to day, but I think just like the eyeshadow primer, its good to have for when you need it. To be honest I haven't tried a great deal of primers but this Urban Decay one does a great job! If I am wearing this throughout the day I will concentrate mainly on the centre of my face as this is the area I notice wears off first. During the colder months when my nose is really cold my foundation just won't stay on! I'm not sure why this happens but having a primer underneath is a big help. The product is white when it comes out so you have to take care and smooth it on well so you aren't left looking a little ill after applying it. Because I don't wear it that often I do notice a difference when I do, things last longer and as I have the pore perfecting version I can see a slight difference there too. It doesn't make them disappear all together but it does give a smoother appearance. 

Are you a fan of primers, what ones are your favourites?

    1. It does, it seems to be one of those products that never run out! The face primer is the same, I have had that one for so long now I can't actually remember when I bought it! Love products like that :)

    1. Yeh, I agree. I also think if you don't use them all the time, when you do your make-up looks that little bit more special :)
