Urban Decay Primer Potion - Original, Sin, Eden : Compare, Review & Swatches

    The UDPP family has grown to three members ! And with more choices comes the question - Which one should I get ?

    The purpose of the primer potion is to help eye shadows stay on longer without creasing. For the most part all three accomplish this. All three are silicone based which makes for a silky smooth finish. They differ in their shades & texture.

    The Original UDPP looks translucent and is almost invisible when it dries off. If you are doubtful about which one to get this would be the easiest choice. The invisible finish makes it the most versatile - great on any skin tone, for any time of the day, under any texture of eye shadow ( satin / matte / shimmer)

    The second release, Sin is a shimmery champagne version of the primer potion. It looks almost like Stila Kitten eyeshadow. So, if you are a fan of it you might like this shade. On most skin tones Sin can be used as an all over color on your eyes. Some might find it too shimmery for everyday / work. Sin also takes a teensy bit more time to dry compared to the original. It could be your favorite night look primer what with the shimmer and stuff !

    I used Sin as the base in this look - here. It is great under shimmery eye shadows.

    The newest release Eden is the matte version of the original. The color is a yellow beige. It looks exactly like MAC Paint Pot - Soft Ochre. If you have one, you needn't get the other. Eden dries just as fast as original. On my NC 40 skin tone its not something I can use as an all over color. For anyone with lighter yellow based skin tones it will work well as an all over color. The matte texture and the soft color makes it perfect for day time wear given you have the skin tone for it.I love using Eden under lighter color eye shadows - something about the yellow beige color makes softer colors pop.

    I used Eden as a base in the look - here. Its the only reason why the beige shadow showed up so well on my skin tone !

    I hope Urban Decay comes up with a darker version of Eden for brown girls world over. If they do then it would be my most favorite UDPP ever !

    So, there you go. Hope that makes your decision easier !
