I "depotted" my UDPP!

I was so bummed out when I thought I was out of my favorite primer potion... without this, I can't wear any eyeshadow (darn you oily lids!)... Think that your Urban Decay Primer Potion is out? Think again! I "depotted" it the other day, here's how:

You will need:
Sharp knife
Small jar with lid [found at beauty supply store]
Your "finished" UDPP
Mitten or sturdy cloth

Remove the wand from the UDPP, and using a sharp knife, cut it in the center. You may need a little elbow grease to do this, just BE CAREFUL because you are handling a sharp object! I used a mitten to hold down one side while I was sawing it in half. It only took about a minute to saw it in half.

Look at how much product there is on the inside. For some reason, the way the wands are made, it won't scoop that part of the tube. Use your wand and scoop/scrap the primer onto the jar.

Got about a couple of weeks, maybe even months worth of product on here!!

This is how it looks when it's completely gone.

So don't throw it away when you think you are out, depot it!!
I use a clean Q-tip to apply this each time, it helps keep it clean longer. I hope this was helpful :]


  1. Wow there's is so much product left!
    They should really change their packaging!
    Thanks for the tut!

  2. I just bought my first UDPP. Not looking forward to doing this but the last thing I wanna do is waste such a valuable product. Great post!

  3. ohh nice, yeah it's a good idea to depot that, there's so much left even though you can't get it out otherwise!

  4. Thanks for the tip! I can't believe how much was left over! I'm bookmarking this post so I can do the same once mine starts running out.

  5. wow that's amazing! and a great tip, too!

  6. Ah, I think they just make it that way, so you could buy a new one sooner -___- Great tip, it'd seem like a hassle depotting, but when you see how much product is left, it's really worth the effort.

  7. Nah, not too much trouble. Just need to have a sharp knife ^_^

  8. Great tip; It's amazing how much is left. Thank you.

  9. wow so much left ! i like the purple under the crackle nail polish ~

  10. SO MUCH LEFT -______- GOD!!!
    Good Idea :) I always do that with my mac myth lipsticks... xx
