    @mmhmm: Thanks for all the info, I have obviously found a topic that you know and care a lot about! It's just going to take me some time to absorb it ...and also make an Ulta run.

    I've used smashbox photofinish eye primer, a few drugstore brands which escape me now (hard candy maybe), and mac prep + prime; I've also used mac paint (which is not a primer, but works decently as one). I have never tried elf, but if it's cheap I probably will when my UD runs out .

    I liked Urban Decay's the best mainly because it lasted the longest. Since I have veeery oily skin, many primers do nothing for me.

    I also really liked the wand application, but the packaging has changed now (which helps to not waste product, which is a plus). The others were tubes or jars & required a finger, which Urban Decay does now also. The elf I've seen has a wand, which I think is a plus, however, it does usually waste product at the end if the tube is not squeezable.



    Other points for UD: it spreads easily at first and then dries fast & doesn't budge. I found others too lotion-y & greasy, too watery or goopy, taking too much time to dry before being able to apply shadow, or drying too fast before you can spread it around, etc.

    The downside - if you're not good at blending shadow, I find this makes it harder, but that's true of any primer that works. It's made to keep shadow from smudging, after all. If you think applying the shadow before it dries will solve the issue, the problem then is that sometimes it just wipes the primer off. However, it is workable. Another possible downside or plus, depending on how you see it, is that it is VERY dry. I do not use this everyday, because I think it could be drying to the eye area over time. I only use it when I go out or do something a bit special. The reason that's a plus is this is no doubt why it lasts so long. Your makeup won't budge because it's dried in place, basically.

    Good points are that you need less eyeshadow product, as the colors show up more vividly & don't soak into the skin as much. It's also "neat" to work with, preventing shadow from dusting below your eye or other undesirable areas when applying. I also really like that they have different colors now, because the shimmery colors work well on their own as a shadow if you just want a sheer, natural color & some eyeliner.

    Me too. I've also tried Too Faced's shadow primer, which is supposedly UD Primer Potion's main competitor. I didn't like it as much. It's not as sticky as UD's.

    Love Urban Decay's Primer Potion, though I bought the huge tube and it dried out before I finished it. I got a sample of Benefit's Stay Don't Stray, and I like that quite a bit, too. It's a bit thinner in consistency than the UD, and spreads nicely. I also have a palette by Lauren Luke that comes with a couple of primers, and I use and like those, too.

    YUP. I looked in the ingredients and there was glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, and salicylic acid. My brother has the kit: cleanser, shaving cream, moisturizer, and something else. Also used to have the 35% glycolic acid peel.

    My favorite daytime moisturizer is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion w/SPF. It's the highest concentration of glycolic acid in a product I can find in the drugstore.
    Guess what I just got yesterday! Thanks. It's just annoying to go out of my way to look up the glycolic acid content because it doesn't say on the packaging... I mean, you would think that it's listed in the "active ingredients" section, but I don't know if it's a snag on the FDA's part or if it was meant to be that way or what.

    i've heard of them through the beauty blogs!
    their famous colour is the yellow buttercupcake


    i've actually been wanting to try it out!
    it's appealing because how highly pigmented
    it is, and would seem to be easier to use
    than the traditional loose pigments... which
    gets everywhereeeeee.

    plus they're matte, and it's so hard to find
    great matte shadows with good pigmentation.

    vintage or tacky uses it quite a lot
    in her fantasy tutorials... that's
    the buttercupcake yellow on the eye.





    i really like the palettes! want want want.

    Burning Heart - Colors: Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Love+, Poison Plum

    i really want the poison plum.

    I tend to stay from eye-shadows. Maybe it's because I don't know how to put them on properly, even when I take the time to try....

    I also think " Where would I wear that"


    So, answer my question ladies, which sort of occasion would call for yellow eye-shadow? And how would one "wear" it?
