Urban Decay Little Sins Eye Primer Set

So what is it?

The Urban Decay Little Sins Eyeshadow Primer Potion Set ($29) is exclusive to Sephora. It's a Miniature collection of Urban Decay's popular Primer Potions including Original, Eden, Sin and Greed.

Sin is a beige-nude with a high frost sheen and champagne micro-shimmer.

Eden is a yellow-toned light nude with a matte finish.

Original is virtually invisible, very hard to swatch

Greed is my favorite and has a bronze gold like shade , but for me, holds the best color.

This is my first experience with Urban Decay's primers. I figured I had to try them because of all the hype. The size is .13 oz so they are quite small, but are good for people like me who haven't had much experience with shadow primers, so it makes it easier when I eventually go to buy the full size primer ($18) I will know when one is on my favorite list.

The brush is good for applying to the upper eyelid. I found the Original Shade to be a bit hard to apply. It's barely there, plus it clumps up a bit making eyeshadow clump as well. Greed & Sin however, have the most color and the most holding power in my opinion. I'm not much for gold, so it's a toss up. Sin is a little more "bronze" while Greed is gold and shimmering. I found these two had the best of everything, and as for Original and Eden? I'm leaving those in the dust.

This set is exclusive to Sephora, so if you want it, go get it soon. If you bought these in full size they would set you back $18, for a total of $52, so if you're unsure which one is for you, the Little Sins Primer Set is your best bet. And if you're new to the primer game, you should definitely give this a go. Eyeshadow looks, feels and stays on much better with a good primer underneath.

Eden, Original

Greed, Sin
