Sometimes you find some serious gems in the sale box, like this time, when I was looking through Sephora's sale section. I came across an Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Greed (at first I thought it was Sin because the packaging looks pretty similar) for €10.
Who is it for? - Greed has a shimmery gold with yellow undertone so it would be perfect for people with warmer tone skin to use this as a base or even on its own as a wash of colour over the lid. Although, this golden yellow tone works well for me, I don't think that it will work as well for people with cooler/pinker tone skin. 
The packaging - This Eyeshadow Primer Potion comes in a squeeze tube which I'm kind of indifferent to. It works fine, although, you have to be careful with the amount of product you're squeezing out and then you have to worry about getting the product back into the tube so it doesn't leak all over the lid. However, I do feel that I might have prefer it in the old packaging with an applicator. 
Does it work? - With this primer potion as a base of my eyeshadow, I've noticed that my eyeshadows look more intense and the primer does gives my eyeshadow a little bit more golden sheen/shimmer. However, the main thing is that the primer doesn't crease (the picture above was taken several hours after I applied the primer). 
Application - I find that Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Greed looks a lot better if you only apply a tiny amount and then you blend it onto your eyelid straightaway to give a nice wash of colour. However, a problem will arise if you apply too much and don't blend it out straightaway as the gold shimmer will clumps together slightly and you will get a very messy looking eyelid. 
Would I recommend this? - Yes but only for people with warm skin tone who is looking for a primer that works on its own and as a base as well. 
Would I repurchase this? - If I ever run out of the gazillion primer that I own (I have 2...) and it's still available to buy then yes because I think it looks amazing as a base for bronzed/golden smokey eyes looks and on its own. It's pretty much everything I look for in a primer.
