FINALLY. We heard rumours it was coming and the time is now: Urban Decay listened to customer feedback and repackaged the fairly dreadful tubes Primer Potion came in. The doefoot wand didn’t go the whole way down to the end of the bottle, which resulted in loads of wastage and more YouTube and blog tutorials than you could shake a stick so that frustrated users could learn how to get the remaining primer out of the fecker.
Now though, you can buy the four shades – Original (matte, fairly invisible on paler skins), Tawny (matte for darker, more olivey skintones), Greed (shimmery gold) and Sin (shimmery champagne) – for €19.50 and they’re actually 10% bigger than they used to be. That’s all great – but here’s the real clincher: they’re now in squeezy tubes with a nozzle applicator. So you can use their primey ways right to the very last eensy-weensy drop.
OH HAPPY DAY!
So, swatches: Really, you all know what these look like. But as the brand sent me two of the new squeezy delights to check out, lets swatch ‘em, shall we? On your left in both swatches is Sin, and on the right is Original. There’s no difference in the formula here at all – just packaging, and for that we say, bravo, Urban Decay.
Psst: where to buy? Debenhams is really the only main stockist for UD in Ireland now, as it seems to have pulled out of Boots. You can also buy in House of Fraser Dundrum, if I am not mistaken.
