Only if you've experienced creasing or want your makeup to stay!

Yes! I live in a humid climate and won't even bother to wear eye shadow if I can't apply a primer first. Otherwise even the best eye shadows will crease like crazy. Plus, a good eye primer helps the pigment of the eye shadow stay true. The only exception is if you use a water-resistant cream eye shadow like Maybelline Color Tattoo, but even with that, I get better coverage with a primer underneath.

If you want your shadows to stay all day and look freshly applied without creases, fall out, or fading, primer helps all of those things! The right primer can prevent your make up melting off of your face on a hot day too.

If you have a formal event/etc you should definitely wear primer if you don't want your eyeshadow to crease or fade.... for an everyday look you can get away with a drugstore eye primer

Yeah because it will make the eyeshadow stay on longer and the color vibrant.

It's not mandatory, nor is it necessary that you use the primer by Urban Decay for their eyeshadows. However, it has a huge impact on the vibrancy and staying powder of your eyeshadows. If you're going for a really bold look, or if you have an issue with eyeshadow fading/melting, primer is really important.
