AMW Reviews: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin

My love for Urban Decay Primer Potion has always been there since I first tested it out 4 years ago.  It was love at first try!  Up until this very moment, I have tubes of UDPP inside my makeup train case as it has been tested by yours truly on her oily-lidded friends and it's the perfect eyeshadow primer for our weather!

I'm so happy Urban Decay came up with different shades of Primer Potion just for variety, and I got my hands on Urban Decay Sin! 

The shade Sin looks almost the same as the packaging

Urban Decay says ---
The most legendary primer in the beauty industry. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is coveted by makeup artists and makeup junkies alike because it guarantees more vibrant eyeshadow that lasts for 24+ hours and Never Creases!

Once you experience its powers (plus how smoothly it glides on – an added bonus) you'll never want to live without it. Original formula dries down invisibly

Now this extraordinary elixir comes in an easy-to-squeeze tube so you can control how much you apply. You also get more primer in every tube - 11 ml instead of the original 10!


AMW says ---
  • Better tube packaging!!!  No more product wastage as the old packaging!
  • Has a nice hint of glitter that can be used on its own.
  • No creasing.
  • No smudging of eyeshadow.
  • Eyeshadow is more vibrant.
  • Eyeshadow lasts the whole day!  Until removal!
  • Lightweight. 
  • No eye irritations.
  • If you're not a fan of shimmers, Sin is not for you.  Pick the original!
Sin has a hint of shimmer if used alone or underneath an eyeshadow.  Crease-free, budge-proof and eyeshadow stays longer!

  • Control the intensity of SIN by using less amount for translucent look or use more for a frosted base.
  • Best to use clean fingers in application.
  • Apply a bit of Sin at the inner corner of your eyes for a nice effect.
  • Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion close to lash line as it'll also help your eyeliner stay longer.
  • The original UDPP works well even on the lower lash line.  For Sin, I choose to stay away from the waterline to prevent eye irritations due to its existence of sparkles.
Will I repurchase?
Not Sin but other shades for sure!  Especially the original formulation as I use it on clients.

To whom do I recommend this to?

If you are a fan of eyeshadow application and is adventurous with different shades, go and purchase Sin!

Where to purchase and how much?
Locally at Stuff in Style online site for Php1,150.00 (approx $27.38).


New packaging.  Better than the genie-type bottle!

A tiny amount goes a long way!

Once blended, Sin is a beautiful champagne salmon color that can be "almost invisible" or frosted depending on the amount of product used.

Applied UDPP Sin on my bare lid

Once blended
It gives a hint of shimmer that looks natural.

Do you own the original Urban Decay Primer Potion?
Would you give Sin a try?

  1. It looks very close to benefit birthday suit when spread out :D

    1. Ah talaga! Nice to know! I do not own Benefit's Birthday suit but the name sounds nice ha!

  2. wow, thanks for the review! i've been thinking to buy this UD primer :))) nice blog! :)

  3. i have both the original and sin, but i have no preference, both work the same for me!

    1. I agree, I wouldn't mind using any of the original or Sin or other shades as I love UDPP!!!

  4. did you have any of the problems experienced by some of the bloggers i read? like the primer drying out faster or getting harder to squeeze out? because apparently the "genie bottle" packaging kept the product from drying out.

    1. Yes, I had a hard time on my first "genie bottle" urban decay primer potion but this newer one is in squeeze type tube so its easier to use.
