My lids are very oily and I tried many bases, Mac Bare Canvas, UDPP, Mac Bare Study paint pot, Artdeco, and seriously nothing beats UDPP ( Urban Decay Primer Potion), my e/s last for 12 hours, I once slept with e/s on and when I woke up the e/s were still on!!

After reading your testimonial Sophia, I think I’m gonna’ have to try out that Urban Decay Primer Potion! I have a couple of things from UD but not that stuff… I just may have to grab some 😉

my eyelids are on the oily side, as well. sometimes i use l’oreal de-crease or mac’s painterly, but UDPP is hands down the best out there.

UDPP! Mine ran out a couple weeks ago so I’ve gone back to my old tube of Bare Canvas, and now I know that on my oily lids, it just doesn’t compare to UDPP.

Bare Canvas…haven’t tried the Urban Decay stuff. It seems we’re strongly polar to one camp or the other. I suggest a game of Red Rover to settle the matter. 😉

christine why do you hate UDPP?

everyones been raving about it and i thought it would be great

dont get me wrong it is, but it dries up so fast, that you have to apply the eyeshadow right away before it dries up in a matter of seconds :S:S:S:S

what do you guys think?

team UDPP please explain why its the best.

I used to use Benefit F.Y.Eye – but then I picked up a couple of MAC paints at a CCO and I never looked back!
I never tried UDPP because I heard that it makes it difficult to blend your eyeshadow….has anyone else heard that?

Wow, I saw this a couple of times but Bare Canvas Paint, hands down. After I started reading this blog, I’ve been using pigments with mixing medium as a base but even then, I put Bare Canvas under that. It’s been really good for me because I have oily skin which makes even my eye shadow crease & the Paints are great for acting like a shield between the eye shadows & my eyelids.

UDPP is HG for me. I also love to use MAC paints as a great creaseproof base. I wish there was a paint in Sliverbleu since the Shadesticks crease:(

I love using Benefit’s F.Y.Eye. My eyeshadow lasts a long time. But after reading the comments I am interested in trying out UDPP.

I have a big problem with my eyeshadow creasing so applying a good base is an essential step for me…I have tried numerous products like MAC’s Prep + Prime, CCBs, Shadesticks, etc and nothing seems to work. Finally I tried using MAC paint pots as base and for the first time ever my eyeshadow didn’t crease! I’m definitely glad that MAC came out with this product coz I’m gonna be needing it as base for my eye make-up like forever hehe. But since I have read numerous good reviews regarding UDPP, I bought a couple at Sephora but haven’t tried it yet…let you know how it works out for me!
