Roadtest: Detrivore Eye Shadow Primer with UDPP

A few weeks ago I did a review of Detrivore Eye Shadow Primer, and found that it did a fantastic job of bringing out the colour of eyeshadow, as well as providing a nice sticky base to reduce fallout. However, it did crease quite a bit after 5 hours or so, and I wanted to try it again with UDPP underneath. I've finally gotten around to doing just that.

I used a Sassy Minerals colour called Vixen, and I didn't bother making up my eye properly, so DON'T JUDGE ME. I just applied the primer/s and slapped some colour on the top.

Detrivore alone.

As you can see, although there is creasing on both, there's a pretty big difference. So to get the best out of the loose shadows, it's a two step process. UDPP (or similar) first to prevent fading and (most) creasing, and Detrivore (or similar) to bring out the colour of the eyeshadow.

And now we know!


  1. Gosh, it's so hard for the oily-lided amongst us. The things we do... ;)
    Great review Dee.

  2. It's hard knowing which eye primer does what- great roadtest!

  3. Very clever! I have never used two primers at once!
    Vixen looks so pretty. I have some Sassy minerals on the way. I wish Vixen was in it!

  4. Good idea, never tried using two primers either!

  5. great test. queen of creasing here and i'll have to consider giving this a try.

  6. Thank you for this post! This is such a helpful one that clearly demonstrates the ability of both products so well, absolutely no room for bias <3
