Reader’s Request: Urban Decay Primer Potion Comparison Sin, Eden, and Original Formula

As requested by a reader here are picture comparisons of the Urban Decay Primer Potions which include Sin, Eden, and the original formula.


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Wow…just ordered UDPP (original) for the first time ever since I stumbled into the beauty world. However, Sin is too gorgeous! Never really saw the shade until now…thank you for the swatches! πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      yay lakish welcome to the world of UDPP! you won’t be able to leave without it now haha! πŸ˜€ My pleasure! Sin is a nice metallic purplely pink cocktail! Gorg! πŸ™‚

  • Leanne

    I found Sin to be a bit erm… I suppose wetter and greasier than original UDPP. I didn’t even know Eden existed, when did that come out? Is the consistency more comparable to Sin, or Original?

  • SoVeryFabulous

    I’m looking forward to trying Eden after seeing your earlier post on it. Went to Sephora the other day and they didn’t have it yet though and the person I asked didn’t know anything about it. Guess I’ll have to keep checking back, hopefully I see it soon!

    Thanks for the comparison between all of them πŸ™‚

  • Christine

    definitely want the eden. as you review on it point out. it can be a two in one deal eye primer/concealer

  • Katherine

    Thanks for the comparison! I saw your review on Eden and might have to give it a try on my under eye circles, even though I hate UD’s wasteful packaging.

  • Aretha

    I have sin and the original one. i havent worn sin much because i find it too shimmery sometimes! i much prefer the original one. i’ll try and get my hands on the eden one to see if i like it better. πŸ˜› thanks for the swatches hun!

    • the Muse

      lisa don’t go my swatches hun for some reason this is rather dark, lighting was off for me sorries!

  • starryxuan

    shall grab the other 2 (sin & eden) to complete my UD Primer potion family! Its too tempting! πŸ™‚

      • Nia

        aww *hugs* miss you too! Am a bit busy with work.

        Btw, the white Bourjois mascara is out here… I might give it a try. Interested?

  • Isabelle

    I understood that at the moment the Eden version is only available at SΓ©phora US (I did not find it on the Urban Decay website). Any news about when it might get available worldwide?
    I just can’t wait to buy one!!!

  • rebecca

    you did it again – me bought!!! luckily I found one on ebay as it seems you can only get Eden from Sephora πŸ™

    • the Muse

      rebecca true πŸ™ it is Sephora only at the moment but glad you got some w00t!

  • Paloma

    meh……I was excited to hear about Eden, but that color is so gross….I’d do a lot better with my UDPP in Sin.

    • the Muse

      don’t let my swatches sway you paloma, totally taken in the wrong light πŸ™‚

  • Donna

    I giggled to myself just a bit when I saw this new UDPP name. Now they have Original, Sin, and Eden. Hehehehehe. Ooooh, I’m so easily amused.

    Anyway. I LOVE UDPP in sin, feel like I NEED the original to make my shadows look right, but I think I would LOVE Eden!

    • the Muse

      ha wonder what’s next donna πŸ˜€ Heaven? Hell? πŸ˜€


      Really lovin’ it at the moment!

  • Liz

    Thanks for the swatches. Is Eden as yellow as it looks? In one pic it looks like a beige and in the other pic it looks yellow. In the first pic it seems just a bit browner than the original UDPP.

    • the Muse

      hi liz eden is about the same color as the bottle. it’s a beige, golden sort of yellow. you can’t really go by pics as the lightening is sometimes off. It’s beige golden yellow to me kinda of like butter yellow. hope this helps! browner than the original UDPP? the original formula isn’t brown!?

      • Liz

        Well, I didn’t exactly mean brown, brown. πŸ™‚ I’m trying to figure out who would want a mustard yellow primer on their eyes. I could understand a darker beige (which is what I was trying to say with “brown”) but mustard yellow? But as you say, it’s the same color as the bottle? I guess I have to see it in person.

        • the Muse

          lol liz I was like whoa brown?! my swatches are really OFF! haha! the worst part about swatching is lighting and also it varies from monitor to monitor because sometimes on my monitors are home something looks so bright and perfect and than I go to my office and I’m like oh crap that looks BAD! But it’s def not mustard yellow my dear it’s more buttery πŸ™‚ plus the yellow is really good for banishing dark dull lids πŸ™‚ It is indeed almost the same exact color as the bottle. I always def rec playing in store so you can get a feel for it. πŸ™‚

          I’m so sorry about the swatches πŸ™‚ I def try to get them as good as possible but it’s tough sometimes πŸ™‚

    I haven’t used Urban Decay Primer Potion before, besides, I never bought it in my life. LOL!
