VFTR: Urban Decay Primer Potion vs. Ruby Kisses 24 HR Eyeshadow Magic Primer

I compared Urban Decay Primer Potion to Ruby Kisses 24 HR Eyeshadow Magic Primer. End of day result:
I can't tell the difference. Can you?
Verdict? I'd say for a 1/3 of the price, Ruby Kisses is definitely a winning choice in eye shadow priming :)

My father-in-law (Hi JD!) keeps picking on me about my absence here. I know it's been MONTHS. And I've thought about blogging often but my heart hasn't been in it. It just seems to take way more time than I have these days. Like even with this post, it was suppose to be quick and simple, but I've been sitting here for 2 hours now and ignoring my half washed sink of dishes.
