Hey Urban Decay, stop hiding our product!

I'm sure you all have heard about how horrible the Urban Decay Primer Potion genie bottle is and how it seems to store product. I recently "debottled" my UDPP and I'm always surprised how much product is in there. When you start to feel like you're not getting too much product from the wand anymore, cut it open! There's about 50% left in there! I thought I'd do a picture tutorial of how to get the remained of the primer potion. I know there a TON of posts/videos on this but I also have a little tip to prevent the depotted product from drying out.

What you need to get the extra product out:
-UDPP bottle
 -kitchen knife
-towel
 -container to put the product into
Cut the bottle at the "curves"

Look at all that product in there!


I just use the wand to scoop out all the product and to put it in the container. I'm sure you can see it's not the  prettiest thing in the world but it beats throwing out half your product because you think there's no more left.

My little tip is to use a glass jar to store your debottled primer potion. I know a common thing is to use a plastic jar but I have always had the product dry out in those within a matter of weeks (no matter how tightly I close it). For this, I used an empty MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer jar. I saved it because I knew it would have a use. This container closes tightly and keeps the air away from the product! I wish they sold empty ones!

I have recently seen that the Sephora website has the Urban Decay Primer Potion in TUBE packaging and the product doesn't have a "Limited Edition" next to it. I'm a little skeptical of this one because I had previously purchased the tubed professional size (which I think was LE) but I found it dried in the tube because the cap wouldn't close tight enough. I hope they changed that!

Have you "debottled" your Urban Decay Primer Potion? What do you use to store the remaining product?

That's genius! They should really change the packaging of this. People who don't know about this are getting jipped 'cause they'll never use the whole .34oz or whatever, that they paid for. & Great tip! I didn't know glass containers made a difference. Thnx for this! <3

I totally would prefer a less prettier container that gives me what I pay for...instead of a cute little bottle that keeps 50% of my product!

Yes I absolutely hate how it is so hard to get the product out! I recommend getting the new packaged UDPP. It comes in a squeeze tube :)
