Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion Review


I can’t be the only one alive that runs across a shade of lipstick or gloss that just doesn’t apply correctly. I find that darker shades are incredibly difficult to apply sometimes and end up feathering, or smudging, or just ending up everywhere around my mouth just not on my lips. On these days I seriously need something to prep my lips to accept bolder shades something that creates a barrier before my slightly damp lips and the darker shade of lippie I’m applying. Something that helps the application to go smoother.

In comes Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion to save the day!

Loves it!

Although Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion is meant as a primer to allow lipstick to stay around a little longer without fading or feathering I think the true joy of the product is how it aids in application. Prepping lips prior to with this primer will allow for a smoother, even finish. I find it’s especially helpful for darker shades which always apply very messy for me.


The formula is a soft, smooth, velvet finish which doesn’t dry lips out but builds an invisible barrier that sets the foundation for lipstick. The formula also has a moisturizing blend of vitamins and an SPF 15.

With lipstick I noticed a few more hours of wear however with gloss I didn’t notice too much difference from my normal wear. Truly for me the real joy of the product is as I mentioned above, easy of application for bolder, darker shades of lipstick. The product also manages to slightly “white” out pigmented lips to allow colors to be truer.

I’m really loving this at the moment and think it’s rather an ingenious product. I haven’t really been privy to many lip primers in the past but this will happily become part of my daily makeup regime.

Loves it!

    I agree completely. I got this in their box of potions set, and the tube just says it provides SPF for lips – but this makes my NYX lipsticks go on like MAC! Perfect for any thinner lipstick which tends to show up all the imperfections in your lips.

      hey anastasia!

      big fan of your blog :-D Same here! It really makes lipstick glide on incredibly well. I find it’s a great tool for really wacky, darker shades of lipstick as well since those tend to smear all over my mouth and end up on my chin, cheeks, and face haha. So this helps prep prior to application! Great products. Some people have compared it to chapstick but I think that’s incredibly inaccurate, this is WAY better than a stick of chapstick!

      Thanks for the comment :)

    Does this lighten the color of your lips, even for a short amount of time?
