I have the Urban Decay Primer Potion and it is a godsend. I put it on my eyelids to stop the greasy eyelid creasing that sometimes happens. I also put a tiny bit under my lower lashes and this stops the oiliness there which I worked out was what caused my mascara to smudge. A friend recommended the Eyeshadow Transformation Potion but I bought some and tried it last night and it must have got in my eye a bit as it stung like crazy for a little while. It did seem to keep my eyeshadow on though. Its supposed to be for powder shadow to turn it into a liquid/cream shadow or liner. It has a brush at either end. Maybe I have not got the hang of it properly yet. I like the lip stain that comes in a sort of felt tip pen. It definitely lasts. If I get it on my finger it takes a long time to wash off.

I LOVE Urban Decay! Most of my eyeshadow is from Urban Decay, and I also own the Primer Potion and some bronzer. I also have the liquid eyeliner and pencil eyeliner, both of which last a long time but they are still easily washable which I love. I just love the awesome colors that Urban Decay puts out! The makeup is kind of expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

I think the names they use for the colours are pretty funky too. Pity the stand in my local Boots is very neglected and never properly restocked. I have to go down to Debenhams instead as theirs always looks nice. Ah well I get Nectar points instead of Boots points.

I love urban decay too. All their wonderful sparkly colors. You can create any look you want from natural, to goth, punk, or sulty. Love it! Also i use clinique's "touch base for eyes" in the color "petal shimmer" it works well with the eyeshadow crease thing too. And the petal shimmer you can wear along or can put a regular shadow on top and it doesn't alter the color.

I love Urban Decay! I also use the eyeshadow Primer Potion and it works wonders, makes my eyeshadow stay put untill i actually take it off with eye make up remover! The lip stain sounds goofd, i'll have to look out for it but it's not easy for me to get hold of, i think the nearest place that sells it is Boots in Hull, unless i buy online. I did buy a Las Chicas Face Palette worth £20 for £7.50 including p&p off e-bay, it's new and boxed, so a great bargain" It's reall ypretty to with some lovely colours in it.

I love the Urban Decay line. thanks for the great tip about using Primer Potion to prevent mascara smudges. I have to try that out as my mascara always seem to smudge on me. I really like the Urban Decay eyeshadows and the 24/7 eyepencils. My favorites are: Sin, YDK, Zero eyeliner and Stray Dog eyeshadow (which is discontinued). Primer Potion is also great.
