If you stalk Reddit’s Makeup Addiction page as religiously as we do, you’re probably equally as addicted to discovering unique, practical hacks. Basically every morning, evening and at sporadic points throughout the day, you can find us scanning for new updates about what’s trending among beauty enthusiasts and mavens. And when we do discover something groundbreaking, the world ought to know.
So what we’re freaking out about today is a recent thread submitted by Reddit user goteamsquanch that says, “I used UDPP (Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion) for my nose today to help combat my super oily skin breaking my foundation up — and IT WORKED BETTER THAN ANY FACE PRIMER I’VE TRIED!” The fact that this user felt the need to put the news in all caps clearly depicts the seriousness of the situation — and we’re more than intrigued. For those with oily skin, this news is potentially a game-changer if you’re feeling like it’s impossible to achieve a shine-free complexion.
Beauty gurus are in love with this eyeshadow primer because it’s super long lasting, easily blendable, non-creasing and keeps your makeup looking fresh all day long. With these facts in mind, it’s not a huge surprise that it could double as a quality face primer. And while we haven’t heard of anyone dousing their face completely in the eyeshadow primer yet, we can assure you we’ll be scoping the Internet to find out how it plays out.
