I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for months, literally months but it’s taken me until now to get the time to sit down and actually type it up. I’ve been a huge fan of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Eden for years. I’ve raved about it on this blog and talked about it on Instagram loads, but then the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas (gifted) launched…. and it was less than half the price! After trying the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas I decided I wanted to write a comparison blog post so you guys can make the decision as to whether you save or splurge….
The Revolution Cut Crease Canvas is very thick in comparison to the Urban Decay Primer Potion which means you need hardly any of it. If you apply too much it can go cakey, but you quickly get the hang of it after a few goes. Both products I find are best applied with a smooth, flat, rounded concealer brush in order to give you a defined shape around the brow. The Urban Decay Primer Potion is thinner in comparison but you still have to be careful how much you use. Both products are smooth, creamy and blend easily.
Now this is where the products objectives are slightly different….. The Urban Decay Primer Potion is only meant to be a an eye primer that brightens the skin. Therefore it’s fairly thin in coverage. In comparison, the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas is much thicker but that’s because it also doubles up and can be used to create a perfect cut crease on the lid. I don’t really ever do a cut crease beacuse, well basically, I’m alway running late and never have time! But I can assure you this product would work really in order for you to get that perfect curved line you need for a cut crease. Its consistency is as thick as a lot of concealers.
I have had no issue with the staying power of either of these products and both of them are equally as good as the other. They both help prime the eyelid, and ensure your eyeshadow will last all day.
This was one of the reasons I loved the Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion so much – its yellow toned so really does brighten my eyelid and make such a difference to my dull dark eyes. If you apply one eye lid with it and compare it to the other, you’ll see a huge difference if you suffer with dark/ purple/ red eyelids like me.
The Revolution Cut Crease Canvas has no brightening effect to it as such, however if you buy a shade lighter than your normal shade it will lighten the eyelid and have a similar effect.
The Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion costs £17.50 for 10ml and the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas costs just £6 for 4.5ml, so on a cost per ml basis the Eden Primer Potion is more expensive.
As much as I’ve been a fan of the Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion for so long I would have to say the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas wins in my eyes. The price difference between the two products is huge and the only benefit the Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion has over the Revolution product is the brightening effect. However if like me, wear eyeshadow a lot you lose most of the brightening effect anyway once you’ve applied the eyeshadow on top. Not only is the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas cheaper, it lasts longer too as its thicker so you need less of it.
The Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion also only comes in one colour, making it only make it suitable for fair to medium skin tones. Where as the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas comes in 5 shades to cater for a variety of skin colours.
If you are deciding between the two, save your pennies and go for the Revolution Cut Crease Canvas.
