What is eyeshadow primer –
Eyeshadow primer is a cosmetic that is used to coat the eyelids prior to the application of eyeshadow so that the eyeshadow can be applied in a smooth, even layer and so that the eyeshadow will stay in place on the eyelid. Some people find that creases appear in their eyeshadow during the day. These creases are the result of movements of the eyelid that are the result of simply blinking and normal eye movements. Eyeshadow primer works to keep these creases from appearing and can also help to boost the vibrancy of the eyeshadow color.(From wisegeek.com)
I know 11 ml product is too less but as a eyeshadow primer it is going to last with me for 6-7 months easily and I am a person who do eye makeup every single day

I chose original as that was the most neutral looking shade which would go with all my eye shadows.

Swatches of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Original
Original shade has no glitter or shimmer in it and it brightens up my eye shadows beautifully.Be it neutral looks or smokey looks it helps in blending the eyeshadow and doesn’t crease on my oily lids.
Color of the primer is beige which suits my Indian olive skin tone easily.I did take out lot of product for the swatch however most of the I just need 1/4th of quantity what is shown below
I just blended the product on my hand and swatched MAC rice paper and MAC quite natural paint pot.Shades look lot brighter than before they use to.Be it cream eye shadows or powder eyeshadows it accentuate the colours of both effortlessly.
I some time used it as a brow highlighter too but not anymore as I don’t want my tube to get finished any time soon
Will I recommend it to others – Yes, Grab it without thinking much
