urban decay enigma eyeshadow primer potion

urban decay enigma

i don’t craft anything crazy in the eyeshadow department, but i cannot stand a creased lid. for whatever reason, my eyes tend to be a little oily so that means my favorite shades are often in jeopardy by mid-afternoon. for a solid three years, i’ve used mac painterly paint pot for added security. while it served the purpose, it’s not technically a primer so i found myself searching recently for something a little stronger.

historically, one of the best things going on the market is urban decay primer potion, but the original shade is a little too pink and chalky for me. it never really did the trick. when i caught wind that a limited edition shade and revamped formula had been created, i had high hopes that it would work for me.

the enigma shade is a neutral matte beige, a perfect match for my skin tone without impacting the true colors of my go-to shadows. you swipe it on with the applicator, then blend into place with your ring finger. it’s soft and easy to work with, creating a beautiful canvas. i love how it preps my eyelids and it also brightens the tiniest bit. something in the formula smooths out my eyelids to eliminate any minor imperfections and it dries to a satin matte finish.

the real test? it holds shadow in place for a solid eight hours. it’s a gorgeous shade and formula, a total workhorse in a very pretty package.

unfortunately it’s one of those things you’ve got to grab ASAP as i’m not convinced that it will be around for long!

    I also love the Nars eyeshadow primer. It’s colorless, so you don’t get a brightening effect like with some primers, but it holds shadows like nothing else I’ve found. I can do a workout and still have perfectly applied eye color after!
