Review: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

I looooooooooove Urban Decay’s cult classic Primer Potion (UDPP). All day eyeshadow wear? Check! Intensified eyeshadow colors? Check! No creasing? Check! Imagine my happiness when I saw that they came out with a new version called Eden.

Sephora describes Eden as “a matte-finish, tawny hue and gives you a stunning “no makeup” look when worn alone or complements other eyeshadows worn in combination.” While it’s currently a Sephora exclusive, a makeup artist at Macy’s told me it should filter into other stores soon.

Just like the original, Eden offers all-day eyeshadow wear without creasing and intensifies eyeshadow colors. The original UDPP goes on as a sheer nude color. Eden takes the original one step further with what seems to be a color corrector added into the formula! It reminds me a lot of Benefit’s Lemon-Aid color corrector since it’s a bit yellow. Without a corrector, many warmer color eyeshadows turn a burnt orange color on me. For reference, I’m cool colored (foundation color MAC NW20).

I think it’s appropriate to make my first post about a woman dear to me, Tory Burch. She and I have a love-hate relationship. I love her, she makes my heart go pitter-patter, but I hate how I can’t have everything in her Spring collection. There’s way more to Tory than her fantastically comfy Revas.
