The Urban Decay Primer Duo That's Awesome

Urban Decay are a brand that I think have killed it the past couple of years, they set the trends and know what makeup needs people are craving before we know ourselves. I don't think a day goes by where I don't use at least one item of makeup from them, and just yesterday I've ordered more from them.

The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is somewhat of an iconic product in the beauty world, it was the first eyeshadow primer I heard people talk and rave about, and is still raved about a lot today. I'd be slightly surprised if you haven't tried it either in full size or from the many samples that come with their eyeshadow palettes. If you haven't tried it, you quite simply need to. It's the only primer I've found to keep my eyeshadow in place, no matter how much the eyeshadow wants to crease; it leaves no colour around the eye or disturbs the colour of the eyeshadow like some do, but just provides the perfect base for eyeshadow. There's been a lot of talk about the NARS eye primer recently, but this is a much cheaper price and I can't imagine the NARS primer does much more.

The second primer is one I heard Tattoed Tealady talk about probably well over a year ago, but I've only recently decided to try, and I love it. I was never the biggest fan of Benefit Porefessional and used it more out of habit rather than because I need it, I found it rolled up on my skin and disturbed my moisturiser and foundation quite a lot. If you've found yourself having this problem with Benefit Porefessional, then you need to try the Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion. It's a similar texture and colour to Porefessional, but leaves my skin looking airbrushed and feeling super soft. It works well with my moisturiser, which I find is a big problem in the primer market, and helps my foundation to stay on all day. The first time I used this I had a bit of a wow moment because of how great my skin looked; the primer was so great I had to tell my boyfriend about it - as though he would understand or even care.

I've now got the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray on the way, so I'm expecting my makeup to be lasting for eternities now, I'm even considering the Naked Foundation - let me know if you've tried it.

What are your favourites from Urban Decay? I'm needing to try more!
