Brandefy Review

*Both brands are certified cruelty-free according to Ethical Elephant. Kayla says:Urban Decay is $24 for 10ml & Essence is $3.49 for 4ml. Urban Decay has a unique packaging. It used to have a squeeze tube and now it has a flat doe foot applicator. It's hard to get any product onto the wand, very little comes out, and it collects around the opening of the tube. I ended up needing to squeeze it out. It can be frustrating. Despite the packaging flaw, the product goes on easily and dries down quickly. My shadows blended well over it and stayed in place all day. Essence has a doe foot applicator. Urban Decay has several different kinds of primer potion (original, shimmer, anti-aging, beige & nude) while Essence has one shade and it is very yellow. For my fair skin, it did not look good on me. I was surprised at how yellow it really was. The formula is quite thick similar to a concealer. It blended out fine & dried down fine however when applying shadows they were not blending as easily compared to the UD side. The shadows looked patchy. I wasn't a big fan of this Essence primer. I'd choose Urban Decay over Essence.
