Review: Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer Potion

I'm back! Sorry about the silence, I've been really busy with work.
But today I had to sit down and write about this product from Urban Decay because I have some things to say...unfortunately they are not good. The product is called Pore Perfecting Primer Potion.

My favourite primer, the Urban Decay De-Slick In A Tube Maffifying gel (reviewed here) run out and then I suddenly decided to go the other way and picked out another primer from Urban Decay. I seriously don't know what got into me, this is for large pores and I don't even have that problem! I think it was the price, this one retailed for the same amount of money ($25) but you get more product in this tube. Smart thinking, some of you might say... But after finding this product completely useless for me, not so smart.

The tube packaging is actually very cleaver. You twist the cap and then you squeeze the tube. Very hygienic and convenient, I'll say.

But the product itself is not working for me. It's white paste, no scent. Very easy to apply but leaves a some kind of white canvas on your skin that can be noticeable if you apply too much product. Of course this is not a problem if you apply foundation over the primer. After applying this UD primer my skin does feel smooth but I can't really tell you details about the pore minimizing effect because I don't have that problem (thank goodness, I think my face already has enough problems...!)

After applying my foundation my skin looks smooth and allright, but unfortunately this product does not work as oil controlling base, not at all. My skin gets oily about in 20 minutes like I never even applied primer. My foundation starts to move and fade after that and I don't appreciate that at all.

But the package is pretty, I tell you that! The shiny purple color and the decorations and the mushrooms...very lovely indeed!


Here's the INCI if you are interested.


For a person who needs help with large pores and has normal skin this would probably work perfectly! So I'm not saying this is a bad product, not at all, it just didn't work for me.

I'm so disappointed and sad that it didn't work out between Pore Perfecting Prime Potion and me. I learned yet another lesson, girl with an oily face like mine shoud not stray from the path. I found a perfect oil controlling product for me but then I wanted to go the other way. Like 500 steps backwards! Not the way to go, girls.
