Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer vs. Urban Decay’s Original Primer Potion.

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.

Both can be purchased at: Sephora, Ulta, Urban Decay, Too Faced and many more places.
