  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I normally don't wear any eyeshadow at all, only liner with mascara. The reason being that my lids get oily and I hated how shadows would gather in my lid creases and make a thick ugly line. Then I would wipe it away gently and lose most of the shadow on my eye. That was just a pain in the neck and made it not worth the trouble of messing with eyeshadows. When UD came out with the tinted/colored shadow primers, I hesitated. I liked the Original in the tube only -- I didn't bother with it when it was in the genie bottle because I hate wand applicators. Original matched my lid skin color almost perfectly, but I was too lazy or rushed most of the time to mess with putting on any shadow over it. The color of Sin appealed to me, described by some as a "pink champagne". For someone like me that doesn't wear shadow at all, Sin was a big step. I don't like how foily and blingy it initially applies for me. But the sparkle/shimmer seems to fad a bit after it settles on my skin (I think this is a good thing). I apply it using a finger, and that is not ideal for accuracy/placement, but it's quick and easy for me. The best part is that I get NO CREASING but I get that little bit of subtle color on my lids that I was hoping for. I like Sin!

    Jane Iredale Active Light

    Love this and have repurchased several times

    I never wore undereye concealer prior to trying this product even though I have deep-set eyes with dark skin under my eyes. This product went on smoothly/creamy then became slightly powdery (I mean that in a good way). Immediately, my fine lines under my eyes became less noticeable -- I could not see them! The packaging takes a little getting used to. It's in a tube (love this) and you twist the end to slowly release product at the top (love this too). The brush at the end is sort of too long, IMO, and the product comes out at the base of the brush. So I have to put the tip at an odd angle under my eye to get the product on the skin. The SA who first sold me this said to use a finger to get the product off the base of the brush to the eye, and then to use a camouflage brush (if I don't like the attached brush). I like the brush for getting to the inner corner of my eyes, but I still use a finger lightly to finish off. Another good thing is that when you twist the end of the tube, it clicks, so you can sort of tell how much product you are applying and get an amount that works for you. Initially, I was using 4 clicks (for both eyes) but then I noticed later in the day that some of the concealer was gathering in my lines, making them show when initially they don't show. So I cut back to 3, and that is perfect. YMMV on how much product comes out of your tube with each click and how much you need for good coverage, so I highly recommend experimenting and not getting discouraged in the beginning. I do rely on the attached brush to "dot" the concealer under my eye and I still lightly use my finger to blend it. I'm on my 6th tube of this stuff.
