Urban Decay's Primer Potion's Unfortuanate Bottle

If you are an avid browser and shopper of Sephora.com you'll have noticed a new feature they have added to their site. Now you can post reviews of your favorite Sephora products... or discourage others from buying things you hate. So my new favorite online activity is to read what other people have to say about the products I love or want.

I am a huge beliver in Urban Decay's Primer Potion as a base for fabulous eye color without any worry that it is going to fade or run. You apply a bit with the wand provided and then rub in with your fingers. Reviews on Sephora.com agree with me, its a winner. The only major complaint they have I completely agree with: The shape of the bottle is totally unpractically! It hides good, usable product that you can't reach with the wand.

One reviewer linked to a youTube video where someone actually demonstrated this! Once the bottle was seemingly empty, they actually cut the bottle in half and scoped out all the unused product still left in the bottle! I did some youTube searching of my own and found countless copycats! Crazy huh? Well, maybe Urban Decay will catch on and change the shape of the bottle so we can actually use all $16 of the UDPP!

Prime Lovely!

You would think that paying $18 for a product that you wouldn't need to perform surgery on it.

Urban Decay doesn't care. You don't think they heard about this? They could change the packaging over night if they wanted to.

I totally hear you. The Primer Potion is great (and it really helps to brighten up my eye shadow). But it's always a challenge to scrape through the last drops of primer in the sleek genie bottle. For me, I'd prefer an accessible bottle to fancy packaging any day.

I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. When I first get it out of the box, I like to squeeze the tube around a bit to make sure that there's no ingredient separation, but otherwise it works great! And it's in a tube so it's easier to squeeze out every last bit. :)

I loved UDPP too, until I found out about the bit at the bottle of the bottle that you can't reach without sawing it in half! There's quite a bit of prodect in there! I've since then, moved on to Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance and I love it! I find it much easier to blend shadows with this product, than with UDPP.

I use both UD/PP and Too Faced Shaddow Insurance. They both do the job, but agree that UD/PP's packaging is terrible. I would rather pay for TFSI than waste my money on UD/PP, and I don't even get all of the product. What a waste!! BUT - now they have a travel size that's shaped like a regular tube, like what lip glosses come in...
