On my Sephora Birthday Haul I posted about receiving a sample size of Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer. I wanted to try this out a few times before I reviewed it. I normally use Urban Decay Primer Potion and I know a lot of other people use it as well, so I compared High Voltage to it.
From the Sephora Website:
What it is:
A lightweight, non-greasy, non-sticky formula that sets the stage for perfect, lasting eye-makeup application.
What it does:
This smooth-textured essential glides over the eyelid without dragging. It performs like a magnet, preventing eyeshadow from migrating and creasing. Micro-encapsulated pigments float over the eye area, finessing skin texture and blurring fine lines.
It’s 0.12 oz for $15.00. It comes in three different shades: Skin (universal neutral beige); Smoky (sultry deep gray); Stellar (pink beige pearl)
Urban Decay has two different sizes; 0.34 oz for $18.00 and 0.55 oz for $23.00. They now carry four different shades: Eden (matte tawny); Green (gold); Sin (shimmering champagne); Original (sheer nude)
The Urban Decay Primer Potion is more shear and easier to blend. Kat Von D Eye Primer is thicker and you have to blend a little longer.
I used MAC’s Woodwinked Eye Shadow on top. In my opinion you get a better color pay off with Kat Von D Eye Primer. It looks more pigmented and easier to blend.
As you can see by the end of the day, my left eye creased up more than the right. My eyeshadow did not wear off with either one, but I have to say that the Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer takes the prize on this one! I will definitely purchase the full size of this when my sample runs out. On another note, a little goes along way. I suggest going to your local Sephora and picking one up or maybe even a sample if you want to try it out!
