REVIEW: MUA Professional Eye Primer

Eye primers are a must for us gals with oily eyelids, or generally anyone wanting their eye makeup to last longer with minimal creasing. Now, I'm sure when it comes to eye primers, the Urban Decay Primer Potion is the first thing that comes to your mind. No doubt, the Urban Decay Eye Primer is one of the best selling eye primers ever but it does come with a hefty price tag that not all of us are willing to splurge on. I recently bought the MUA Eye Primer for basically a steal! Does it compare to the Urban Decay one? Keep on reading to find out! 

WHAT IT CLAIMS: A professional eye primer to make your eye shadow long lasting, smoothe out the eyelids and prevent creasing. 

WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT: The MUA Eye Primer comes in a tube with a doe- foot applicator. Although the packaging is really sturdy and perfect for travelling, I really wish it came in a squeeze tube which would make it much more hygenic and I'd be able to use up all of the product. 

The product itself is a nice, creamy beige color, but it's transparent once blended onto the lid. It does a great job of creating a smooth canvas and prepping my eye for eye shadow. It makes blending a little harder, but that's the case with every eye primer. I do notice that this makes my eye shadow stay on and look vibrant for a longer time with minimal creasing. However, it doesn't really do much in terms of enhancing the intensity of the color of the eye shadows.

Honestly, it's just as great as other high end primers. If you're on a budget or just want to experiment with different makeup looks, then this is the primer for you! 

PRICE AND AMOUNT: This is priced at 450 PKR and you get 7.5 mL of product. 

AVAILABILITY: I got this from


-It is a great budget eye shadow primer 

-It contains a good amount of product 

-It makes your eye shadow last longer 

-It prevents creasing 


-It makes blending eye shadows a bit hard

-You don't like the doe- foot applicator 

-It doesn't make your eye shadow more intense 

OVERALL VIEW: This is an amazing primer and a great alternative to the much loved yet very expensive Urban Decay Primer Potion. Have you tried the MUA Professional Eye Primer? What do you think of it?
