Beauty Item I Swear By

Eden (tawny matte finish)
Sin (champagne shimmer)
Original (nude, dries invisible)

I am sure, by now, you can tell I love Urban Decay products. If I had the money, I would own all of the stuff they make. Alas, I don't have an endless supply of money, so I put mine towards their primers. See this post for my other Urban Decay primer obsession. I started using the Eden primer on my eyelids a few months ago and I will never go back. The color of Eden will even out your eyelids prior to applying eyeshadow or could be worn alone. Put a little bit of this on your eyelids and your eyeshadow will stay in place all day. The tube I bought a few months ago is still going strong so it lasts awhile.
