How to | De-pot UD Primer Potion

Urban Decay Primer Potion is a must have for me. Whether I am wearing eyeshadow or not a quick sweep of this over my eye lid keeps oil at bay all day. I have the tube version which is a dream but trying to use up some products lately I have been using this mini version which I believe came with one of the Naked palettes. The problem is its a nightmare to get the product out so the other day I found myself mutilating the tube and de-potting it into a smaller container.

So lets get started!

What you will need:

- Sharp scissors
- A small pot
- Urban decay primer potion

Firstly I started by cutting the tube in half. Its a bit tough to start with but once your though its easy enough to hack into 2. Check out how much product thats in there. I probably would of thrown this away after a few more uses as I felt it was running out but theres literally tons of product in there, I can't even begin to imagine how long the larger ones would last.

Use the applicator to scrape all of the contents into the small tub. I got a set of tubs from Primark for approximately £1. Boots and Superdrug also sell them as well as Muji for a little bit more.

Finally admire your new little pot of product and no product wasted! Bonus! Simple yet effective don't you think?

Do you use this primer?
