I've moderately oily eyelids and hooded eyes, so I do need a good eye shadow primer. Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance and to some extent also Artdeco's Eyeshadow Base do the trick perfectly, but this one doesn't, unfortunately. Urban Decay eye shadow (i.e. a good eye shadow, which is not prone to creasing) started creasing after about 5 hours. I suppose this would be a good enough primer for people whose eyelids aren't oily and who only need to intensify the colour of their eye shadow. That it does do well enough. The packaging is a pain, because it make it really hard for you to get to the last bits of products in the tube.
