First I want to thank all who commented on the primer post yesterday.
All this talk about primers made me want to run out and make a purchase yesterday, so I did.
I walked into Sephora and asked a sales associate to lead me to an eye shadow primer. I didn't give any indication that I had researched primers or that I had an idea of what I wanted because I wanted her honest opinion and recommendation. She said "right this way, here is the best eye shadow primer". It happened to be the same on that I said I was thinking about purchasing Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, priced at $16. So it was time to use the primer and as soon as I unscrewed the wand I was skeptical because of the color of the product. I know the box says that this product is nude, and I know what nude looks like but for some reason before opening the tube I translated nude into invisible so when I saw this tan solution on the wand I was worried. I applied the primer and there it was, beige product on my eye lid, so I tried to rub it in as much as possible and some faded into oblivion while other sections had this beige film. Then it hit me umm the eye shadow goes over the primer so no one will see it genius. I applied the eye shadow and waited for hours to see what would happen. I should mention that I only applied the primer to one eye lid because I wanted to see the real difference. I'm pleased to report that both eye lids maintained my eye shadow color but the eye lid with the primer was indeed brighter, it did not settle into the creases of my lid and the color was deeper, so that lid most resembled the appearance of my lid when I first applied the product.
The next time I use this primer I will not try to rub it in, I will just allow it to dry and then apply the product since the beige color will be covered anyway. Drying time for this primer is around 1 second or so, it almost dries instantly.
Thanks for reading.
