Urban Decay Spring 2011: Greed Primer Potion

Greed ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is new and not new — it is new because it is the first time it has been available on its own (and full-sized), but it was originally launched as part of Urban Decay Little Sins Eyeshadow Primer Potion Set.

  • Greed is a shimmering slightly pale gold with yellow undertones.

Even though I tested Greed previously for wear, I found the full-size version to be more pigmented and the overall finish of the product seemed different to me. I tested and photographed Greed just this past October, but the full-sized version has more of a metallic finish with a stronger sheen.

The finish is quite similar to Sin’s, but I specifically mentioned in the previous post on Greed that it had more of a shimmer than frost finish. Because Greed has more of a metallic finish, it reflects more light, but the color itself is still a beautiful pale yellow gold. I was, however, still able to wear Greed all day on its own or as an eyeshadow base without creasing.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I think warm-toned beauties will find this works really well as a base or an all-over color for quick looks.
