..if that's what I need? my eyelids seem to be greasy blush confused and if I put eyeliner on it ends up all over the place like much higher up on my eyelid. Ditto eyeshadow I don't have much to spend on it. Thanks

DD has one of the Urban decay primers (original) in a little travel kit (mascara,eyeliner,primer ,setting spray for £15) no idea on what the full price is.

I have a Barbara Daly one and a Bare Mineral 5-in-1 (primer/eyeshadow) both have lasted months.

Benefit Lemonaid is well reviewed too (not tried it myself)

I have all 3 of the Urban Decay. Nothing comes close, imo.

I have just turned 46 and my eye makeup stays perfect all day and evening - no creases whatsoever.

I've found the Nars one to be better than the UDs but it's so good that it makes blending eyeshadow a very lengthy process.

I find this Clinique one is really good without being chalky as I've found with some others. Eye make up always used to slide off me, but this keeps it on all day with no creasing.

Another Urban Decay fan here. I had the same issue OP where my eye make up would just disappear. The UD keeps it in place for hours.

I love Urban Decay too. I recently bought the naked 3 palette and was pleased to find some eye primer samples inside smile

I also have one by E.L.F, it's my next favourite and as it's only a few pounds it goes in my bag if we are staying at families etc, or I'll use when pissing about with different shadows to see what looks I can get.

I have never tried the ELF one, but I love their brushes and their eyelash curler, which cost me about $2 in Target is infinitely superior to my Shu Uemera ones which were, I think, about £20.

brilliant - thanks all flowers I've splashed out and just ordered a travel size of the UD one (£8) and will report back once I've tried it

Everyone I know raves about the UD one. I just bought the MUA one today as online reviews say it is almost as good as UD

The Essence one is really cheap and almost as good as UD.

W7 Get Set. Only £3. It's so brilliant.

FireCrotch Fri 16-Sep-16 14:18:08

Was just about to say W7 it's even cheaper now. This is it.

MaxineRockatansky Fri 16-Sep-16 14:18:15

This from Essence.

Better than UD primers imo.

Just to update as promised - the Urban Decay is working so a massive thanks. I only just saw the final couple of posts about W7 and essence, so will also give those a try next time. Thanks all flowers

Another suggestion here as I bought the Kiko eye primer recently. Takes a few minutes to dry but really impressed as my eyeshadow looks exactly the same now as when I put it on this morning! Much better than the L'Oreal one I had previously which was pants!

For me, absolutely nothing beats the UD primer. I still remember putting it on the first day, working 10 hours, going to the gym and then looking at my tomato-red sweaty face - my eye makeup looked exactly the same as it did when I put it on!

I may rave about it so much that my friends are a little sick of me blush

Nars lasts ages too
