All UDPP and all TFSI - comparison!
I have a full size TFSI, a mini size UDPP Greed, sample decants from Sephora of UDPP Sin and Eden and TFSI candlelight, and I had a sample card of UDPP. So, I did some swatches. On top is Silk Naturals Lime, a matte shade, and on the bottom is Hi-Fi The Hydra, a shimmery blue.
Left to right:
1. Bare skin
3. UDPP Eden
4. UDPP Sin
5. UDPP Greed
6. TFSI Candlelight
Out of the "clear" primers, I like TFSI better - I think it does a better job enhancing the shimmer shade.
I do not like Eden too much - it leaves a much too yellowish cast for my taste. I'd like it better if it were a very pale peach.
Out of the "gold" primers, I like UD Greed better. Candlelight seems to wash out the shimmer shade too much, and even if it does make mattes a little sparklier, it also makes them paler.
Sin is a unique shade, and I like it. It washes out the colors more than Greed, but I like it on its own as a quick and easy work cream shadow. I have the shadow pencil in the same color, but that creases on me a little - but if I had the primer for my lids and the pencil for the lower lashline, I'd look a lot more awake in not a lot of time.
Out of the six of them, TFSI, Greed, and Sin are the ones I think are worth having.
So there's my thoughts on the eye primer leaders.
