Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Mary Kay makes an OK primer. I like the MAC primer, but you have to apply it thinly and let it "set". UD makes the best primer!

UD Primer Potion is best eye shadow primer I've ever used. Lancome's Colour Dose also wasn't bad. Unfortunately the MAC products didn't quite work for me here.

Wow so many great reviews for UD. I went to UD.com and Sephora.com and both were OUT! Now I'm fixated on having it. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

As other ladies have stated, Urban Decay's Primer Potion is the BEST eyeshadow primer. I used to really like Benefit FYEye but UD's is so much better. Even the cheapest eyeshadows don't budge when I used Primer Potion.

i love MAC's Bare Canvas paint. it's a nude color with no shimmer...if you want something shimmery, then get Stilife paint.

i also recommend Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Well I went on a wild goose chase to find UDPP yesterday, every website was out and Sephora stores were out too. To spare myself from paying double on eBay, I heard the Lumene Eye Makeup Base from CVS was just as good for many people, except those with extremely oily lids, and even they liked it up until 7+ hours or so.

L'Oreal has one that's good, but I agree with the MAC Paint & there's several great neutral colors there, Bare Canvas, Stillife, and another one similar to Stillife that I can't remember now!

I'm currently using the Lumene Eye Makeup Base -- I have the oiliest lids known to man, woman, child and dog. You're right - it does work up to seven, maybe eight hours. I'm still waiting for the UD PP. I called the company and one of the representatives told me that it would be up to a month before they got it in. I think Lumene has been a great substitute.

Urban Decay Primer Potion is the only one that truly made my shadow last all day without fading or creasing at all. Apply with a synthetic bristle brush and use sparingly, otherwise shadow may be hard to blend.

I love it! I've tried other eyeshadow bases, and PP works the best. I had a hell of a time trying to get one, since they were sold out practically everywhere, but it was so worth it.

Yes! It works...also MAC paints...I think I replied to your other ? about crease free...these two things have worked for me and I used to have a problem with creasing until I found these...I think the PP also holds the e/s color better and intensifies the color a bit...
