Product Review: L'Oreal De-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, possible dupe of UDPP?

.


Product: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Quality: 5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
Price: $7-$8, drugstores

What they claim:

-Prevents creasing and fading for 8 hours.
-Use this unique eye shadow base to prevent creasing or fading, and to extend wear up to 8 hours.
-Can be used with powder, cream or gloss shadows.
-One universal shade suits all skin tones.
-Ophthalmologist tested.
-Fragrance free.

PROS: Same consistency as Urban Decay's Primer Potion (UDPP), this one is a bit creamier which may make it easier for some of you to work with, and it dries to a nice finish so you can apply your eyeshadows with no problem, like UDPP, it also enhances the vibrancy of your eyeshadows. You can find it easily, drugstores, Target, K-Mart, etc, it's also cheap! It comes on as a beige color that matches ALL skintones because it dries to an invisible finish. See-thru bottle so you see how much product you have left.

CONS: None!

Overall: It's a lot cheaper than the UDPP, and it's perfect for you gals on a budget!



As vibrant as UDPP! (I accidentally put a little more eyeshadow on the UDPP side!)

norrrrrrrdia said...

GOOD! Finally something that rivals UDPP, lol. But yu know alot of people are still gonna go the UDPP route, just because of the name and the hype. I, for one, will be trying this out. Thanks!

Gee said...

OO! Great find! I'll have to try this after I finish my UDPP :)

Incandescent said...

wow thank you for the product rec! I am so totally buying this after I run out of udpp

babiehershie said...

hey vanessa!! i absolutely love your reviews..and yet another great one!! can't wait to try it...after i'm done with my primer ofcourse. anywho...keep up the work! :D

Some of you reading this blog may already know this, but when it seems like your tube of UDPP is running low, DON'T THROW IT OUT! Chop the top off of the tube with a serrated knife, and you'll see that there's still TONS of product left! This is because it gets stuck in the "bulb" part of the genie-bottle shaped tube.

Seriously, I did this after reading about it on another blog and I was shocked that there was sooooo much product left! After chopping off the top, I scraped it out with the wand applicator and placed the rest in a screw top jar.

So, try this and you won't be sorry! Promise!

aww shucks! I should've read this review before I went and bought Too Faced Shadow Insurance after UDPP started getting gritty on me. I'll keep a look out for next time. Thanks for the review!

rmcandlelight said...

Yes I think its just as good as udpp. I wonder does the brush go straight down the bottle just like the udpp. I bet there is a lot of product at the bottom and the fat part of the bottle. Won't know until you cut the bottle open.

i wish it was available here! i can only wish :) thanks for review!

Nice thought but it only last half as long as UDPP on me. But I guess for half the price half the quality could be expected. Not that UDPP is rockin' my boat these days anyways.

Nanzy said...

That's awesome, thank you for reviewing this, Nessa :)

Cruelty-Free Beauty Maven said...

too faced just came out with an eyeshadow primer in a squeeze tube, i'm excited to try that.

what shadow is that in the swatch over the primers? it's gorgeous!

Corrine said...

is this new or has it been out for a while? new stuff is hard to find in canada

Jen said...

Amazing! Finally a UDPP dupe. I've been waiting and waiting. Keep us posted on what happens at the end of the bottle - one of my pet peeves is the way UDPP leaves all that extra product the wand can't reach.

I'm also intrigued by the "1/2 the wear" comment above- but it's not going to stop me from trying it.

Thanks for the review.

MeaganMonster said...

yummy411 said...

thanks so much for this review! i was hesitant to try it being very content with my udpp! but now i know ;)

Lily said...

thank you!!!! i'm definitely going to pick this up since it's so cheap!

Askmewhats said...

it would be great if l'oreal philippines could bring this here, I want to give this a try as it is super difficult o find UDPP here in Manila (actually there's NONE) and a lot of us gals have to order online, if L'oreal works as good as UDPP or almost, we're all going to be SOLD on this :) thanks

HiGHLYFE said...

T4P! I was just about to add UDPP to my next Ulta cart. I love to save.

nanshi said...

Excellent!!! I've been *scouring* the Internet for the past few weeks looking for a good dupe to UDPP (the curse of being too pale is that nice neutral shadows don't show up well on me either), and I found a nice one by L'Oreal HiP, but it was apparently discontinued... =( I'm so glad that you reviewed this..!! Makes me want to pop by Walmart now to buy a tube!! Is this a new product or has it been out for awhile?

Fabu-less Beauty said...

Thanks for the review! I've heard about this product as well. Once I run out of my MAC Paint, this will be on my must buy list.

MakeupByRenRen said...

wow that's wayyyyyyyyyy cheaper...thanks girl! i'm going to put this one in my kit!

IchigoBunnie said...

thank you so much for the review on this product! i was thinking about it for a while whether it worked or not--thanks for solving the mystery :) hopefully this isn't any limited edition item

Tracy said...

thanks for the review! i've never tried UDPP, but this one looks great. i'm seriously going down the street to cvs on my lunch break to get this... hahaha.

Rebekah said...

is this a new item? i went to walgreens today and they didn't have it =(

stylishmomy said...

wow that's one cheap nice product.
I agree with Nikkie, how we wish L'oreal philippines would carry that item here. By the way dear, what e/s u used to swatch? is that "steamy" looks fab

Lakia said...

I love this product! My colors always last and last! It has always been my alternative to UDPP, and it is so economical.

Bliss said...

Great review thanks, now i gotta hunt for this heheh :D

ladyjane said...

I haven't been able to get my hands on UDPP, so thanks for reviewing this Vanessa. I'm going to hafta try it when I see it in stores!

Mariela said...

I have been up and about trying to find a cheaper alternative to UDPP and I use De-Crease on a DAILY basis now! Color lasts HOURS and actually stays as fresh as when I initially put on the makeup! Now, I'm addicted to it and so are my two room mates. Thank you so much!!!! :) Great Buy and great review! We love it!
