Urban Decay Primer Potion – New Packaging is Awesome

Hello Friends and Fellow Urban Decay Fans,

Primer Potion in Professional SizeGuess what I have some good news!!  As you know one of the most annoying thing about the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion or UDPP for short is the packaging.  I know it’s cute and as I mentioned in one of my other posts, Hate The Genie Bottle? Urban Decay will keep this genie bottle because it marks the brand.  BUT we hate it because it doesn’t allow us as consumers to get all of  the product out and OUCH on the price when a fourth of the product goes to waste.  Even if you depot this primer, it doesn’t keep as well and dries out quickly, at least that is what I have found. 

OK enough complaining.  The folks at UD (aka Urban Decay) have finally relented and come up with a tube.  The downside – it’s more expensive!! OK but hold on, it is bigger .84 ounces vs. .34 ounces.  That is 2 and half times the amount plus you can squeeze out every single drop. 

The original UDPP lasted me about 4 months.  I am figuring that this tube will last at least 7 months if not 8 months.  At $29 that becomes $4 a month based on 7 months of use - or 13 cents a day.  Not bad!  I have already ordered mine. Good-bye genie bottle.

I would highly recommend you go ahead and order yours now.  I heard a rumor that this is a Limited Edition package and may go away.  I wouldn’t wait.  Click the ORDER NOW button below before it’s too late.

Urban Decay Primer Potion Best Kept Beauty Secret

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Original (nude dries invisibly) .34 fl oz (10 ml)Wouldn't you like to look as good at the end of the day as you did when you first applied your makeup in the morning? The good news is now you can. Gone are the days when makeup streaks down your face especially in the heat of the summer or if   you have oily skin.

Beauty experts have heard the plea for this demand and have come up with a must have product in your beauty collection. The Urban Decay Primer Potion is one of the most exciting and revolutionary products that delivers as promised. This product keeps you looking fresh and beautiful all day long. Once you apply Urban Decay’s Primer Potion to your face, you never have to retouch your makeup again for the rest of the day.

Although Urban Decay makes primer potions for lips, face and eyelashes, by far the most popular primer potion is the Eyeshadow Primer Potion packaged in a pretty genie shaped bottle.

The genie in this bottle fulfills three wishes: Eyeshadow that lasts, more vibrant and lasting color, and absolutely NO creasing.

Apply the eyeshadow Primer Potion to lids before shadow application. The texture is lightweight; the color is a sheer cream that becomes invisible once applied. It dries down almost instantly creating smooth lids that are super powered eyeshadow magnets. You can even wear the creamiest dewy shadows and it will not glob up at the end of the day.

Why choose Urban Decay versus other brands? Well, for starters Urban Decay never tests it products on animals and has been 100% cruelty free since day one. You can be assured that this brand uses only the best and most beneficial ingredients that not only looks good but is good for you as well. So why not go with a company you can trust and delivers what it promises?

One thing to consider is how long this product will last you. A little goes a long way, so in the end you may spend a little more on this product but it will last for several months. This means that your actual overall cost ends up being less because won’t have to replace your primer for a while.

The Urban Decay Primer Potion works well with any skin type. From younger oily skin or combination skin to more mature and dryer skin. Why is this? Because Urban Decay’s Primer Potion is full of silicone, which makes for a smooth and silky application and works well on practically anyone regardless of age.

Looking for a healthy overall glow? Try the Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion.

Want your lipstick to stay on without running or feathering? Then the Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion is the perfect solution for you.

Looking to condition and thicken your lashes? Try the Urban Decay Eyelash Primer Potion.

Want to transform your favorite eyeshadow to a liquid liner or liquid shadow? You need to get the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion. Imagine how many eyeliner colors you can create without spending another dime? Pretty cool!

Once you try Urban Decay, you will be hooked. And really the prices aren’t half as bad as some of the high end department stores yet the quality you get is just as good if not better than products that can cost up to hundreds of dollars.

If you are on the fence, why not give Urban Decay Primers a try?

Hate The UDPP Genie Bottle?

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Original (nude dries invisibly) .34 fl oz (10 ml)So you aren't in love with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion bottle?   Although I think the bottle is cute, like many of you guys, I hate to waste product and for that reason I am not crazy about this design either.

This is the number one complaint among Urban Decay users because like I said, it creates wasted product.  Its something like 25% of the product cannot be reached by the applicator.

This primer is not cheap either, so I completely understand how annoying it is that we end up spending more than we need to.  It's definitely not easy especially if you are a UDPP addict like me and won't go without it.

I have depot-ted my UDPP and found that it changed the consistency.  The product did not keep well and dried out quickly.  I personally would not recommend doing this until right before you are about to throw away the bottle as a last ditch effort, then by all means cut away and get every last drop.

OR learn how to Depot Urban Decay Primer Potion without a knife.

BUT....before you go and take the primer out of its perfect environment (aka genie bottle), here's what I recommend you do:
  1. Remove the ring from the top of the cap with tweezers or small pliers, this allows you to get more of the product out of the bottle. Be gentle or YIKES primer all over the place (yes I have done this too LOL!!)
  2. Bend the applicator a little more so that you can reach and scoop around the sides of the bottle a little better.
You may as well stop complaining and do the best you can because it doesn't look like the folks at UD are going to change the packaging for this product any time soon. 

Why won't UD get rid of this bottle?? Because people recognize this brand from the shape of the bottle, even a hundred feet away, you would recognize this an Urban Decay product.   That is why the company has not changed the bottle.  It's great PR and marketing.

Oh yes - they did change the shape of the wand from straight to slightly angled.  Does this really help?? I don't know for sure but click here for a tip on how you can make get the most out of your genie bottle and make your UDPP last longer.
