We’d heard about the amazingness of this product for years before actually picking up a tube for ourselves. Really? we thought. A primer that makes eyeshadow stay in place, no matter how hot or sweaty we get? No matter the consistency of the shadow, cream or powder? No matter how humid the weather or amount of dancing we do in a club? Impossible.
Well, color us impressed, because this primer WORKS. A quick sweep on each eye, a few seconds to let it dry, and voila—your eyeshadow won’t move for the entire day. You heard us—the ENTIRE day. Cream, liquid, powder, it doesn’t matter—it just doesn’t budge!
And, thankfully, Urban Decay wised up and changed the packaging a couple years ago, from the old couldn’t-get-half-the-formula-out-of-the-strangely-shaped-tube to just a normal, everyday, squeezable tube that lets you get every single drop of product out. Thank goodness.

There are actually three different palettes you can choose from, but we’re loving Flowers 1, with its mix of white, rose, lavender, gold, lavender grey and black shadows crafted into beautiful Warhol-esque flowers. Each of the palettes draws from Warhol’s famous silkscreen flora. Etched into the interior mirror of Flowers 1 is Warhol’s quote, “If you can convince yourself that you look fabulous, you can save yourself the trouble of primping.”
The only problem we have with this palette is that we can’t bring ourselves to actually use it! It’s just way too beautiful—and it makes us feel like we have a piece of real Warhol art in our home.
