My skin type: Combination. (Oily T-Zone.)
I have always been a user or Urban Decay’s Original Primer and it has given me the results I want.
- No oily lids.
- No smudging.
- No budging-long time wear.
- And, enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.
Ulta recently had a sale where the Too Faced Shadow Insurance was $10 instead of the normal $20. Yep, literally half the price. And, that’s when I decided to test out the product.
The results that I got:
- No oily lids.
- No smudging or budging.
- And, of course enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.
Both products gave me the results that I was seeking and left me satisfied. Now you might wonder what the difference between the two is.
Price: Both are $20.
Size: Too Faced-0.35 oz vs Urban Decay-0.37 oz, a little more product but not too much of a difference.
Texture: I liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better than the Primer Potion because it was more velvety. The Primer Potion has more of a thicker and harder to spread formula. They both leave my lids matte though. But, I would say that the Shadow Insurance is definitely easier to spread which actually makes me use less product.
Longevity:The Primer Potion improved shadow/liner color by just a little bit when several hours had passed, it was not a significant enough difference for me though-at all.
Preference: Either one because they both do about the same job but I definitely liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better so, if I really had to pick-Too Faced Shadow Insurance but texture and the importance of texture is really a personal preference.
