Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Gel VS. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

The most coveted primer of all time is the Urban Decay Primer Potion. But at $18 for one tiny .34 ounce bottle, it's also not exactly cheap. Plus, there are complaints that you can't get to all .34 ounces with the bottle design. You really can't find this product for less that $18 except for Ebay. But, Ebay can be shady for beauty products (expiry dates, already used eeww)

There IS a very good alternative. INSERT: Monistat Soothing Chafing Relief Powder Gel. This stuff works exactly the same. What makes Urban Decay Primer Potion and Monistat Soothing Chafing Relief Powder Gel work so well as a primer? Dimethicone. This ingredient is found in both of them and is the reason for why they are excellent primers.

I know, I know... the Monistat product is not intended for a primer.. but I tell you it WORKS and WORKS AMAZINGLY.

The Monistat product comes in a 1.5 ounce bottle. That is almost 4.5 times more than what comes in the Urban Decay. Plus, in such a large bottle at less than half the price, you don't feel like you're overindulging by using it all over your face.

I used this at my wedding last year. First applied the Monistat "primer", then my foundation, eyeshadow, etc. My blush lasted and never faded. My T-zone which is usually VERY oily did not require blotting AT ALL. And, my eyeshadow which always creases within 30 minutes stayed until I washed my face at night. My makeup looked like I had just applied it all throughout the night. oh, and on top of that, the air conditioning at my venue did not seem to be working!

The powder gel goes on so smoothly and velvety. It's hard to describe. The best price I found it for is on Amazon for $8.68, including shipping. Amazing price for how well it works. Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel 1.5 oz (42 g)

I've been looking at lanacane as well and wondering what's the diff btwn the two and hopeing to find answers but none =( anyways...i have monistat and it's soooo velvety and nice as a primer! I have also used it as an eyeprimer and it holds nicely but the creases start forming after about 4-5 hrs....idk?!? Also tired of everyone thinking the monistat is for yeast infections...OBVIOUSLY one cannot read as it specifically states "CHAFING GEL" lol but anyways...i had no luck as a eye primer! BUMMER! I will keep trying it in diff ways tho and also how r u applying it cuz it seems too oily for the lid and i have applied it very very lightly and also heavily and either way it sucks! I have also tried wiping excess and still, no luck! Maybe I will put powder over it then try it again or put foundation or paint pot over it to see if the shadows hold up then...also i have only used the UD shadows (WHICH IMO aren't that great) so maybe i will try MAC shadows with it.
