Cosmetics Counter: Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay claims to do what many products have claimed before. The difference is that this stuff actually works!

Urban Decay's claim:
This miracle eyeshadow primer is unmatched by any other in the beauty industry! The genie in this bottle fulfills three wishes: eyeshadow that lasts, more vibrant and lasting color, and absolutely NO creasing.

It goes on quickly and easily although I recommend blotting it on with the wand and then smoothing it out with your finger. It dries quickly and does not affect the color of your eye shadow.

When I bought it I was highly skeptical of its ability to make my eye shadow last without creasing, but being the sucker that I am, I was grabbed by the marketing and bought it anyway. The first day I used it my expectations were low. I put my make-up on at around 7:30AM as I do most mornings and I was absolutely shocked to look in the mirror at around 5PM and see that I still had eye shadow on my eyes. No creases either. Amazing!

You know, you need to get a job as a cosmetics counter promoter. That's the second thing you've sold me on this month (and I'm someone who can barely get through her extraordinarily low-maintenance Body Shop skin care regime and her if-it's-not-done-in-five-minutes-it's-not -getting-done makeup routine).

Emily -- I would go broke if I worked at a cosmetics counter. I love make up and all the skin products, but believe it or not, I basically have a 5 minute routine myself -- maybe 7 minutes total with cleansing and make-up. Have no time or patience for much more.
