Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer to PWN Urban Decay Primer Potion?

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

This worries me just a little. The already perfect Urban Decay Primer Potion just may have some competition coming its way. Not only is the Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer a Sephora exclusive product, but its only available to Beauty Insider members.

This product, which is $20 for .1 oz (UDPP is $17 for .34 oz) claims to help create the perfect canvas for eyeshadow application. The selling point is basically the ingredients:

The exclusive formula contains Phytomoist, a plant-based hyaluronic acid for ultimate moisturization and amino acids for skin-smoothing benefits. Soft focus pearls help diminish the appearance of fine lines on the lids while the patented Qusome® delivery system ensures all ingredients penetrate the skin to deliver effective results.

Sounds impressive, right? I know.. it does. I should give it a try. I don’t really want to be caught cheating on UDPP, but I think the fact that the Photo Finish Lid Primer has fancy Phytomoist and hyaluronic acid, I could be easily swayed by the “soft focus pearls”.

WTF.. Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Gloss

This has to be the funniest cosmetic product I’ve ever freaking seen. Wow.. the marketing department must have been rolling laughing while putting this one together.
