I don’t run. Walk briskly? Sometimes. In rare instances, I’ve been known to jog…whilst being chased by leash-less animals or trying to catch the bus when I’m running late for work. But run? Uh-uh.

On the flip side, my eye makeup loves to run. Yeah, child…seems like every shadow and liner I bring home has a case of the can’t-sit-still. A few hours after I’ve painstakingly applied said makeup to my lids, the color starts to migrate south. And all that you can do is clean yourself up, and wonder how long you’ve been walking around with raccoon eyes. Right? Wrong.

A few weeks ago, I decided to try . And let me tell you – it stopped my vagabond eye makeup dead in its tracks. The primer works in three ways: eye shadow and liner last longer, color is more vibrant, and there’s no creasing. All you do is swipe it on your lids before applying eye makeup. It dries almost instantly – and a little goes a very long way.

One tube of the Eyeshadow Primer Potion will knock you back $15, but Urban Decay also sells an for $25 – so you can stock up or share your beauty booty with a friend in need.

Urban Decay is also available at Sephora.

    I love the way you worded this review!! And by the way, I don’t run either. Nope. Can’t make me. I *might* skip, lol.

    Great work with this.

    I will have to try Urban decay’s line. I stumbled across your blog and fell in love with it! It’s refreshing to see a beauty blogger from Philly! I’m a fellow PR girl studying at Temple and hope to go in beauty marketing. Yo go girl!

    I’m going to 2nd what “anonymous” wrote and say that you really must check out that link, half the products is stuck in the tube and gets wasted otherwise.
