Tutorial: De-Potting my Urban Decay Primer Potion! Is it Worth it?

Posted by roseannetangrs in Basics for Beginners | Tutorial | Urban Decay

Hey Everyone,

I honestly think we need some epic music right about now. The time has come to depott my primer potion. I’ve seen blog posts and I’ve seen videos in the past so with basically nothing coming out on the wand of my UDPP and no retail counter to purchase my beloved primer at, I took out a cutting board, a sharp knife and looked at the bottle with kind eyes, ready to say “Goodbye”.

The tools of the trade? Committing a crime against your UDPP needs a decent knife. I don’t recommend a serrated knife like I used in this tutorial, but I didn’t have one on hand in Australia. You need a small sample jar so that you can keep the remainng UDPP and of course a cutting board where the magic will happen.

Like your husband throwing away the manual to build the garden shed, I wanted to do this “the fresh out of my mind way”. Who says you need to make tribal sacrifices out of a manual. Pshaw. Well, I shouldn’t have done it the bloke way because well cut number one was fail. I wanted to split the UDPP in half but I really made no progress after about 5 minutes. Hey, I made a nick though.

So I looked for the place where I didn’t need to saw so much but still sort of get the bottle open and opted for the neck of the UDPP. I continued to do my thing until…

I saw a hole! Literally. It was for sure a Hallelujah moment, and well in this case, Kodak too.

I don’t know what made the picture iffy here but Roseanne has a few mid-semester exams coming up and re-editing the picture would take too much time. So here, it is, special. I wouldn’t know how to re-create it anyway. The point is after sawing it, I hastily used my paws to bend it open. I figured that it wasn’t a very good idea when I saw plastic particles scattered everywhere. Plastic on the eye wasn’t a very appealing idea.

My first scoop wasn’t very full either. I was starting to regret tearing my UDPP apart. My hands hurt from trying to cut it open as well.

Puttting the first few scoops in the jar…

But, then as I started to dig more and more, I realized that a little does add up into a lot. By about 3/4 through, I had this much in the jar already! Thus, it’s for sure a good way to save your money and save more primer potion. Even with UDPP, very little goes a long way on your eye. This would probably take forever to finish as well!
And to the UDPP bottle, your’re still beautiful all torn up.
And there we have it! I hope you liked this post!
