Urban Decay Primer Potion Review

Today I am reviewing one of the most beloved beauty products of America, the Urban Decay Primer Potion. The primer seems to have a particularly cult-ish following so I headed out to ULTA to get my hands on a bottle so that I could see what all the hype is about.

Product Description: From Sephora's website, "A 24-hour wear, nude eye shadow primer that ensures vibrant, crease-free wear. This primer keeps your eye shadow crease-free while making color more vibrant and providing a smoother application. Formulated with polymer technology, it fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping lids for all-day wear. It glides on smoothly, blends beautifully on all skintones, and dries on invisibly.." Urban Decay also carries tinted versions and an anti-aging version of the same product. 

Size:  0.37 FL/oz per tube. (I purchased it in a set of two.)

Review: Overall I wasn't too impressed with this primer. I don't know if it was because it just couldn't live up to the hype or if it really is just a mediocre primer. The formula isn't as great as they say and by no means keeps your makeup even remotely intact for 24 hours. After 8 hours of work and chasing after a five year old my eyeshadow was almost completely gone. I would rate this product a solid 2.5/5. A good (and much cheaper) dupe for this the $1 ELF primer. 

Is there a product you were excited to try but the hype didn't live up to your expectations? Let me know in the comments section below.
