Two Faced Shadow Insurance Versus Urban Decay Primer Potion

Hello ladies, how are you? I hope your well. Today I'm going to be a product face off you could say. I'm going to be telling you my thoughts on Two faced's Shadow Insurance and Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Okay so let's get started! 
Urban Decay Primer Potion (New Packaging)

Urban Decay Primer Potion (Old Packaging)

So lets start off with Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Now I love Urban Decay Shadows their all I really use but this eye primer just didn't do it for me. It seemed very thick and has a dry formula. When I applied it I found it left my eyelids looking dry and it really wasn't nice look at all. However I do have dry skin so that could be the reason. I don't have oily lids at all but on someone with oily lids I think this would be amazing. It did make my eye shadow last and stop it from creasing but it made my eye shadow look very dry and flaky. Another thing to note is they have changed the packaging which I am so happy about. Their old packaging was nice to look at, but the wand wasn't my cuppa tea. I love the new squeeze tube and I think you get more product out compared to the old packaging plus its more hygienic. I wouldn't repurchase this again but I would recommend it if you have oily lids and find your eye makeup slides around or just doesn't last.

Two Faced Shadow Insurance

Now onto Two faced Shadow Insurance, this is my go to primer. I love it. It does exactly what it says, it stops my shadow creasing. My eye shadow lasts all day and looks just as vibrant when I'm taking it off as it did when I first applied it. Its a silicone primer which feels nice on my eyelids unlike the UD Primer Potion which sets matt and leaves my lids feeling tight and uncomfortable. I have tried this on my friend who has oily skin and it worked just as good on her as it did on me. I would really recommend this if you on the hunt for a good eye shadow primer.

So that's it ladies thank you for reading! Give me your thoughts on how I can improve my blog? Cheers and take care!!
