Urban Decay eyeshadow primer

I am a makeup junkie. I love trying all different kinds of products and a huge fan of changing my look from day to day. Today I’m going to review Urban Decay Eyeshadow make-up primer potion- original. This product is fantastic.

The Original primer potion is great if you’re like me and have both matte and shimmery eye-shadows and like to switch it up often throughout the weeks. You just take barely a pea size amount, rub it in, let it dry, and you’re ready to go.

All day my makeup stays put and the color lasts forever, even when I am running around waiting tables on a busy Saturday night. My make-up never slides, never creases, never so much as smudges the entire time I am working. This is honestly the best primer I have found, and the most versatile as well. It keeps your mattes flat and even with no creases, and your shimmeries sparkly all day long.

The only draw back to this product is when it says it offers 24 hours of lasting coverage, it means it. I ran out of makeup remover and it takes forever to get all of my eye make- up off after work.


This product runs anywhere from $10-$20 depending on the size, and can be found at any Sephora, or Ulta store, or online at Urbandecay.com. Be sure to give me feed back and tell me what you think about Urban Decay Original Primer Potion. Or tell me what your favorite product is so I can review it.

My Favorite Natural Remedies to Deal With My MS Symptoms

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which caused me to drop out of school. It took me months to find a medication and fight with the companies to cover the 3,000 a month for my interferon. After a few months they stopped sending my medication and when I called I was told there was a recall on it and they had to switch me to something else. My new injections caused me terrible pain to the point where I couldn't sleep. However my doctor refused to switch me and told me to just take Tylenol to relieve the pain. After almost a year of this I had had it. I started looking into alternative medicine and researching my illness. There is so much out there that my doctor never even told me about even after I asked about more natural remedies that wouldn't kill my body and leave me unable to function at work.  Here are some of the things I found that worked great for me.

Bilberry leaves and berries- You can find these in tea, pills, or certain areas as fresh fruit. When I lived in the south I loved to eat them, now I have to settle for the pills, which you can find at any health foods store or online. These berries are rich in anti-oxidants and helped a lot with the inflammation the interferon was causing on my joints. My personal favorite is natures answer, which you can find for about $15.00 USD

Dandelions – This plant was a huge energy booster for me. My biggest problem with MS was tremors and fatigue (especially in the summer time.) Dandelion tea is wonderful and very refreshing during those hotter days. My favorite is the Yogi brand tea which you can find for about $6.00 USD

DHA- DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can normally be found in fish. (if you don’t like fish they have plenty of tasteless pills for you to try) I take my DHA in prenatal vitamins. It has so many awesome benefits, Brain development for you and your fetus (if you’re pregnant of course), Anti-inflammation to help with those achy days. The fatty acids help with muscle activity and blood flow.

Marijuana- Now obviously this isn’t legal in all states and I am certainly not telling anyone to commit a crime by purchasing illegal substances, but if you can, It’s worth a try. I’m not a huge fan of smoking the product. It makes my shakes worse and leaves me paranoid. I prefer to ingest it in my food or make tea out of it. My MS tremors almost completely stop and depending on the kind of marijuana I can either be productive, or sleepy. If you want to use it to relax I recommend something with a higher THC content and a low CBD. If you want it more for productivity I recommend a high CBD content and a low THC. You always want to talk to a dispensary worker to find the product that best fits your needs.

With any natural remedy you have trial and error. These are just some of the products I found that worked awesome for me. Most of these are not immediate and may take a few days or weeks to show any kind of results. Please also check with your doctor before beginning any of these to make sure it doesn't interfere with other medications.
