Urban Decay Primer Potions Trilogy W/ Swatches

I know I've only been blogging about drugstore products. I can explain. Last month I started myself on a makeup budget, so recently I've been scouring drugstores for makeup. I'm sure you guys need a break.

I decided to review/compare all three UDPPs since Eden just came out.

Original, Sin, and Eden


The Original (cult fave) is a skin tone color that is easily blended in. Some people like Too Face Shadow Insurance better, but after comparing, I must say, UDPP will always be my HG. 

Sin is a sparkly champagne color. I have to admit, this is my least favorite out of the three. Sometimes when I use it, I feel that my lids... look dirty? I don't know how to explain it. It is still pretty though. I don't use it often because it's not as versatile and it really shimmery. 

Eden is a matte yellow. BE CAREFUL WITH THIS STUFF. Only put a teeny amount on. The first time I used it, I put the normal amount I would have used with the Original, and my whole lid was a stark YELLOW and the primer didn't blend in! But putting just a smidgen on, this primer really covers my lid well so I don't need concealer prior. It doesn't blend as well as the Original. 

Overall, they all have good staying power. They make my shadows last a lot longer and stick better. My only problem is it gets a little hard to blend sometimes.

Note about the bottle: I know a lot of people hate these bottles since they have to be depotted (maybe even with the new wands) but I F-ING LOVE THEM. Maybe it's because I grew up watching I Dream of Jeannie

My favorite? The Original. And I'm sure that it'll stay that way unless UD releases something new and better.

Which one's your favorite?

FTC DISCLAIMER: I threw my own hard-earned money on this crap because I like to. My opinions. I wasn't threatened, bribed, or manhandled in any way. Thanks.


  1. thank you for the swatches! i only have the original as the other 2 arent released out in the uk. but i do want to try sin :)

  2. No prob =)
    whattt the UK doesn't have sin or eden??
    Is it something that will ever be released there?? =( have you tried eBay?

  3. not sure when it will be release of if it will. it ends up being a ridiculous price because of shipping :(

  4. I wanted to try the UDDP Eden, but I don't want a buy a whole bottle. I hate the packaging which is why I use TFSI instead. Thanks for the swatches :)
