    Ah! Loved the peak into Where Did U Get That’s makeup must-haves. Bummed there was no eyeshadow primer mentioned–I’m dying for a recommendation! UD’s Primer Potion just doesn’t cut it for these oily lids of mine…

    @Alyssa – If you’re looking for an eye primer, what I use (and I have somewhat oily eyelids too) is Mary Kay eye primer. If I remember, its about $15 for a tube that lasts forever (since you only use a small amount) and totally works!

    @Shaney–Try using Google Translate. The English is a tiny bit choppy, but the instructions are still pretty clear.
