I think one of the more frustrating marketing strategies that pops up during the holiday season is when a brand brings out one new, exclusive/limited edition shade amongst a set of several other permanent shades. (And don’t get me wrong, many brands employ this strategy.) I don’t want to have to buy the three other Primer Potions just so I can get Greed. This is how I end up with doubles or triples of certain eyeliners, pigments, etc. — none of which I’ve ever used up the original! I really do like Greed, though, so I’m crossing my fingers that Urban Decay releases it on its own.
I find that the Original Primer Potion has a tendency to crease on me after about seven hours, though Eden and Sin both seem to hold up better. Greed didn’t give me any creasing problems after wearing it on three different occasions for over eight hours on each.
Each contains 0.13 oz., which means you’re getting 0.52 oz. of product in sum. This translates to $55.77/oz. while a full-sized version ($18 for 0.34 oz.) goes for $52.94/oz. It’s a nice opportunity for those who haven’t tried our the brand’s line of eyeshadow bases yet. It may also be worth it for those who are devotees, because you’ll likely run through your tubes eventually and need replacements… ta-da. Plus, the travel-sized versions may be more convenient for those treks to Mom and Dad’s house for holiday dinner.
