Other than the search for the "perfect" man, little is more exhaustive for the oily-lidded woman than the hunt for the magic that might keep eye shadow from disintigrating 17 minutes after application. I have oil-slick lids myself; I know I'm not exaggerating.
That said, I haven't a clue what took me so long to get around to trying the raved-about Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Eyeshadow Base in Sheer Nude ($22 CAN/$17 US). Maybe I'm not such a good multi-tasker?
So I've added another prep-step to my routine. Blended on bare lids before makeup, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion keeps shadow in place, virtually creaseless all day, and keeps lids looking (and feeling) fresh when I skip the colour. Now I can concentrate on other things.
And thanks to always-thinking Nicole Stamp of pageslap, who left this link for us in the comments below, I don't have to waste any time on concentrating how to get every last bit of primer potion out of this quaint but inefficient tube: How to De-Pot Urban Decay Shadow Primer Potion
