Today I'm going to be reviewing a new favourite of mine which is the "Urban Decay Primer Potion" in the shade Eden. I also have the original primer, but this one has really been a wow product for me. I'm totally up for anything that's going to make my eye are look brighter, even and also help to keep my eyeshadow on all day long. If you have been reading my blog recently you might know that I have become just a little or maybe absolutely obsessed with Urban Decay haha. I normally use mostly Chanel makeup, but Urban Decay stays put on me all day long, which is absolutely amazing. This is going off the point a tiny bit, but yesterday I applied my Urban Decay NAKED foundation at around 10am and it stayed put even through a 45 minute intensive spinning class, all the way up to around 9.30 in the night when I took it off. I'm usually used to my foundation lasting 6 hours max. So, back on track now haha! I hope you like my review and if you have any questions please leave a comment below, or use my social media buttons to the right to contact me :D.

Urban Decay Primer Potions are huge in the beauty industry and are coveted by make-up artist and beauty junkies all over the world. The primer potions come in four variations and its designed to make your eye shadow last 24 hours crease free, as well as increasing the vibrancy of your shadows. The original formula dries clear and makes it a great option for everyday. However, the other formulas are designed to also work as eye shadows and highlighters.
What I liked ?
Eden is a Yellow toned matte eyeshadow primer, which makes it great for correcting the area around your eyes. I absolutely love using it around my whole eye area and then blending it out, as it gives me a really lovely awaken look. If you have any darkness or discoloration around your eye area, then this would be a great solution. It's a matte primer which makes it really easy to work with and it also tones down some of those super glittery but beautiful UD shadows, which is useful if you want to use more vibrant shadows as part of an everyday look. I have been testing this primer out for over a week now and would definitely say it keeps my eyeshadow in place all day, but I haven't had a chance to wear it on a night out yet to try it for the 24 hours. However, I wore it from 10am-9.30pm the same as my UD NAKED foundation, and my shadow was still in place. Its quite a thick texture which could actually be used as a concealer if you had the right skin tone to suit it, which I think makes this product super versatile.
Personally, I love this product as I suffer with a bit of darkness around my eye area. However, If you are quite Pink toned then the Yellow shade might be too strong for you, as the pigmentation is quite opaque. If you are neutral/warm I think it would be absolutely fine for you to use. Definitely use a little at a time with this product as its very pigmented and its quite easy to apply too much Yellow.
Another fantastic Urban Decay product for me, and overall I'm having so much fun discovering this brand. If you are looking for a shadow primer, highlighter, corrector and even a concealer then Eden would be perfect for you. However, if you are quite Pink toned this might not be for you and you might be suited to one of the other potions. Also, if you are quite dark skinned then this might be too light for you, but again you could choose another from the potion collection. This product has been a must have for me recently and I can see this staying in my make-up bag for quite a long time.
