Urban Decay Primer Potion Review

I don't even know where to start with this primer. Its a cult favourite in the beauty world and seriously, if you haven't tried it you have been missing out. I could put my eye makeup on at 7pm, go out, come home at 3am, fall into bed and wake up the next morning and be able to leave the house if I wanted to because my eye makeup has stayed perfect (don't worry I don't do that, that would be gross). 

Yes its a little expensive, but its so worth it. It lasts so long, you literally only need the tiniest amount. I got mine in Sephora in Paris in October 2010 for about €20 (you can get it for £14.50 or €20 here) and I've just run out of it now. There's probably still some product in the tube, I just cant get to it. So its lasted a pretty long time. I know people say you should throw out makeup after a certain length of time but I personally go on my gut instinct and go by the smell or texture.

I do like the packaging, its cute, but it is awkward as I said before its hard to get all the product out, which is why they've now introduced new packaging, in the form of a squeezy tube. Which means you can get every last drop for your money.

One thing that a lot of people have said now though is that after about 6 months in the squeezy tube the product becomes quite hard. The old genie bottle had prevented this apparently? So either way you can't win haha. Overall Ill definitely be repurchasing this primer and will continue to do so.

What's your favourite primer?
