Used my urban decay primer today and my mac eyeshadow...came home this evening to find my eyeshadow had gone all oily and blended into one (I had 2 colours on this afternoon!). Also my eyelid had smudged my eyeshadow up in a dome shape! Really disappointed and wondering what can I do to make my shadow last and looking fab!!
Btw the primer really made my eyeshadow pop but that's about it :(
UDPP just probably isn't for you. It's not for me. I don't like it. TFSI is better than UDPP in my opinion.
Was this your first time using UD? Like Rikki said it may not work for you.

Yeah it was my first time :(
Try Lime Crime's base or Glamour Doll Eyes Control Freak.
Lime crime is great as a primer
I have the same problem! And I've been dealing with it for years, have you tried milk of magnesia underneath?
But lime crime is def one of my favorites for staying power
i always top my primer with a cream shadow base before putting on my eye shadow. NYX makes a skin tone base, but i often use a color one like the maybelline color tattoos or an NYX jumbo eye pencil. my shadow stays on until I wash it off, always.
Try using Too Face Shadow Insurance
Try LA Girl's pro primer HD high definition eyeshadow primer that I feel that it works better than UDPP and MAC PREP + PRIME. It's not oily and it's a white primer so you can use it as a base too. I got mine at SASA.

Try Nars eye pimer

It may not be the right one for you, you might need a heavier formula. I LOVE Stila's Primer Pot. It covers any eyelid discoloration and doesn't crease. Also, you may have used too much product. You only need a very minimal amount :)

Maybe hunt for a primer that is suited for your skin and I also recommend a setting spray: urban decay's setting spray are the best !

i used to use ULTA professional primer for a really long time. it works well :)
In my opinion udpp isn't the business. :/
