Primer Comparisons

Happy Thursday, loves!! Can you believe that the weekend is almost here? Yessss!!! I figured I would drop a vid on one of my newest experiments. I haven’t actually compared them side by side like my girl Julie has but one can’t help but be intrigued by the idea that Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance may one up Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.

….to my newbies out there, don’t even think about applying eyeshadow without a primer. The cult fave is Urban Decay Primer Potion (also known as UDPP) but I have also found success in concealer. I just recently purchased Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance and haven’t played around in it much with am glad to see that Julie has done the comparisons.

Check out her video by clicking on the link below.

… you have a preference in primers on your lids?

….and have you checked out Clumps of Mascara’s column on I am so fortunate to be able to contribute to a website by and for Black women.

….I have 3 winners from Monday’s contest but I am lookin’ for oooooone more. Guess where I was born win a Palmer’s Lip Butter. Here is the post.

Big love to JulieG. Her YouTube Channel is amazement!

Stay beautiful, lovelies!

    I love UDPP, I don’t find it really hard to blend with either like some people have. But I agree about the concealer. Sometimes I just use that and it works really well. Thanks for the info, love!

    UDPP is my fave primer. have you tried mac’s face primer? I’ve heard good things but haven’t tried anything. I should get on that given i have oily skin. and yes, i’m totally suggesting you do a review lol.

    i’ve never used primers. I tried udpp at sephora but it looked somewhat ashy on me but then again i didn’t give it a fair shot.
