Urban Decay GREED Primer Potion Review

I had this for a while now and really love it! I really like the UD primer potion's. Eden is my HG eyeshadow primer and I thought Greed would be a excellent addition to Eden and I was right! This primer brightens up colors and it really makes them POP.

This is what it looks like alone:

Sometimes if I am in a rush, I just swipe this primer on my lid and a color liquid liner on my lash line and I am good to go! On it's own it adds and a beautiful light gold color to the lids with a hint of shimmer.

Here is what it does for the eye shadows:
UD Naked Palette
Left side: No primer    Right side: Greed Primer Potion
Top to bottom: Gunmetal, Smog, Hustle, Half Baked


Top: No primer    Bottom: Greed primer potion
Left to right: Radium, Money, Psychedelic sister, Mowie Wowie

MAC Shadows

Left side-No primer        Right side- Greed primer potion
Top to bottom: Wood winked, Honey lust, Satin Taupe, Espresso, Nylon
Look what it does to espresso, which is a matte is like a whole new color now!

So what do you think? Doesn't add something extra special to the shadows!

That's interesting! A lot of people say that the primer makes the shadow looks more vibrant. I think you're the first one to show that it doesn't.

Does it at least make it last longer?
Great post, by the way!

It defiantly makes the shadow last all day long with no pressing really makes the whatever shadow u r were brighter and more can change the color or finish of a shadows too depending on how it MAC espresso

I think that's really cool that it makes matte shadows shimmery! Like even if you had all matte shadows, you could buy this and it would double their uses.

I bought this in full size the second it came out! But now I hardly use it...

hm.. interesting, it didn't occur to me that a primer can make an eyeliner last longer, might have to pick it up as I always struggle with making my pencil stay put. will it work for it?

I love UDPP and have tried the original and eden. This one looks great too. I would love to use this under shimmering similarly coloured eyeshadows!
Thanks for all of the pictures of the shadows swatched with and without the primer.

Thanks ladies and I am glad this post was helpful to you
@Renee- It should help to make your eyeliner last longer however it may be the brand of eyeliner that you are wearing which is causing it fade..I'm not sure though as I never had this issue BUT I always wear UD primer potion too..sooo maybe that is the key..
