Beauty Muse: Take Urban Decay Primer Potion and Make It Better

Wanna muse improvements for Urban Decay Primer Potion with me?

How can you possibly take something as awesome and incredible as Urban Decay Primer Potion and make it better? Not possible!

But yes, I'm sure we are all in agreement we can def do a better job of UDPP. Not so long ago I almost lost a finger or two trying to cut open my bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Can't recall? Jump for the details!

I was quite pleased with the amount of UDPP that was stuck up in the neck of the bottle after splitting mine open. Oh how sad is it we all toss our bottles out and inside is tons and tons of primer still stuck in the the bottle. Sigh! After I hacked into my bottle I transferred all that beautiful primer to a small sample jar but turns out, for some odd reason, the primer isn't nearly as good once it's out of the bottle. The texture becomes a bit dry and actually loses it's ability to hold shadow in place as once the open air hits it and it lays in the jar a while it just suffers through some sort of transformation. Or at least that happened to me.

So how in the world can we make UDPP better?

New packaging that's how! I wouldn't love a tube like Too Faced Shadow Insurance but I'd love a straight line bottle with the same sponge applicator so I can get all the goodness out without having the struggle with the sexy curved bottle the primer currently sports!

How about you?

Go on! The Muse knows you'd love a new style packaging for our old favorite!

Tell me how you'd make it better!

Shu Uemura's lipgloss comes with a STRAIGHT sponge applicator which I find really cool because it sweeps the sides clean! Perhaps a straight bottle could work if the applicator's straight too.

I wonder how a Stila lipglaze style pen would work?

New packaging would be fabulous!
Clear bottle would be neat, a pot like a MAC paint pot would be cool, just something other than the sucky must saw in half package.

I did a post on depotting UDPP - I found that the jar I put it in (there's a pic on the blog post) and applying with a concealer brush instead works WAY BETTER!

I would love a tube bottle like Too Faced Shadow Insurance, as I love the fine precision tip which means I don't waste any product. I would also love a darker shade for darker skin tones.

Re: the remaining depotted remains drying out, I have done Enkoremake-up's tip of transferring the remains into a couple of empty twist lipgloss pens (like the Stila Lipglaze ones) which keeps the product from drying out and dispenses onto a nifty brush, good for application.
