I use Urban Decay Primer Potion but lately that hasn't been doing the trick. It used to work amazingly but now by the end of the day my eyeliner and eyeshadow have been creasing and wearing off. Does anyone have a good suggestion to help me?

I have the UD Primer that came with the Naked Palette but since it's practically gone I bought one of the MAC paint pots (Painterly) and I personally think it's one of the best primers I've tried. Please look at my review on that product in order to learn more about my application suggestions.

Naked Cosmetics has a really good eye primer. I actually think it works better than Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Colors appear more vibrant and apply super smoothly.

NYX HD Eyeshadow Base.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is my go-to.

I've used Urban Decay Primer Potion also and had the exact same problem. One thing that helped a little bit while still using the Urban Decay Primer Potion was applying a light nude eyeshadow all over the lid, up to the brow bone. Even though that helped a bit, I found it easiest to move on and started using the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and I LOVE it!

I've used the UD but for me the best is the too faced shadow insurance my shadows and eye liner stay in place all day and night

Kat Von D Eyeshadow Primer is awesome! You can purchase it at Sephora.

Thanks guys! I have tried my paint pots as a base and they crease really bad on my oily lids. I think i'll try some NARS

The best eye primer is the one by NARS!! Most definitely Temptalia.com raves about it and out of the thousands of dollars worth of products that she reviews, she always uses that one.

Honestly? I always use a cream shadow base on top of any primer and it works wonders. I have to chip my shadows( even the cheapest ones out there) off my eyelids at night. NYX skin tone shadow base, NYX jumbo eye pencils, maybelline color tattoos, la colors jumbo eye pencils. I pretty much have a cream shadow in every basic color so I can match it to any shadow I'm using. give it a whirl

LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer and Base is amazing. I used to use it only for glitter adhesion but when my UDPP stopped working for me (so weird why does it do that?!) I tried the LA Splash all over. Its very sticky though so I put UDPP or MUFE HD Powder to give it a nice smooth base to apply powder eyeshadow on top of. NYX Jumbo Pencils crease on me like crazy and all my MAC PPs dry out!

Thanks for the suggestions. It's really weird about the UDPP it worked great for the longest time then all of a sudden it just stops working.

I rotate UD Primer with MAC paint pots. I noticed with UD it was seriously drying out my lids. And with the paint pots not only does my shadow and liner last all day without creasing but the powder shadows actually pop out more on my lid. I might use UD Primer twice a week as oppossed to everyday.
