Review:Urban Decay primer EdenTuesday, September 14, 2010
Today I come up with a review.
I bought the UDPP Eden I wanna say a month ago.
I got it at Sephora for $18
When I first heard about this primer I got really excited.
I was very interested in the matte formula, but not excited about the same genie bottle.
The original UDPP has been one of my HG items in my make up collection.
I have very oily lids so UDPP so far is the only product that prevents creasing.
I thought I was going to get the same results with Eden, but I did not.
For starters, the formula is a lot thicker than the original. A little bit goes a long way, a little bit, I repeat.
You only need one dab on your lids, if you get too much it is very difficult to blend since it dries very quickly and you end up with a really strong looking base.
This is something that disappointed me, it dries too quickly for my taste.
The color that you get when it dries is a flesh tone kind of color similar to
MAC Soft Ochre paint pot which I liked.
Unfortunately, this formula did not work on me. I have been using it and my eye make up creases after a few hours. I have tried different things to make it work like layering Eden UDPP with MAC Soft Ochre paintpot on top ( I heard this tip on a YT tutorial) and it kind of worked but today I did the same and when I got home my eyes were looking awfully creased and of course I was disappointed because I wore my make up for only 4 hours.
However what does not work for me can work for others, so even if you read this
don't get discouraged!
For reference, as I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I do have very oily lids.
I don't think I'll buy this again :(
Take care guys!
