A reluctant UDPP depotting experience.

I'm not a big depotting fan. I like things in its original packaging, and yesterday I had to (reluctantly) depot my UDPP. Here's how the story goes. I was filming a tut yesterday and after I was done and cleaning up the desk I noticed that my Urban Decay Primer Potion was bleeding.

So I had no choice but to depot this sucker.
I first thoroughly cleaned my cutter blade. The blade is going to go right through the formula and you don't want it dirty :(
I cleaned the blade back and forth for 5 minutes with rubbing alcohol.

Now, identifying the crack was easy. I wiped the exterior of the bottle clean and pushed the applicator in. There was a fart sound and another gulp of UDPP spilled out from the bottom of the bottle.
Look at the filmsy packaging! The bottom part was so thin, it's just asking to be cracked!

I easily opened the bottom part and was surprised to see so much potion left in the bottle. I have been using this bottle for quite a while.. and thought I was almost through it!
but NO.. It was so filled up I felt like the formula was literally spilling out.

after scrapping out some from the bottom, I decided to cut the fattest part (the upper part). At first it was frustrating to saw back and fort with a small cutter, but once the blade goes through, the bottle cuts clean like a soft tofu block.
And again - sooooo much potion in there!! This is an insane amount of formula!

I had to fill two bottles of 5mg sample bottles (full)!

And here's the end of my potion bottle -_-;;;

* Tip: If you are depotting your UDPP, when you scrape the formula into a bottle and the bottle mouth gets all clogged up around the rim, just simply close the lid and tap the bottle down on hard surface or on your palm several times. It will make the formula go down and you'll have a clean rim to put more in the bottle (I know, duh.. high school science - but, just in case you guys needed a tip :p)

  1. it's such a shame, if not depotted so much product would be thrown away because the applicator wouldn't get to the sides and bottom.

    i'm currently using the Art Deco eyeshadow base which is a cream formula in a pot, but if left unused it can dry out and eventually become useless.

    i guess you never win...

  2. Wow, so much product is inside?

    Thanks for the post.

  3. That's why I went with the Too Face Shadow Insurance. I was trying to decide which one. It seems UDPP is the best, but I didn't want to have to bother with the depoting experience. So to this day, I still have not tried UDPP. I need to get my hands on a sample to see whether or not it's worth switching from TFSI.

  4. wow that is a lot of product! even though the packaging is pretty, it was for the better to depot :P

  5. @cbsg6851: It is! UDPP's packaging is so impractical :( yeah.. shadow primers are though. they should come in small sample sized jars at a lower price so less could go to waste.

    @strenchenslove: no problem :) thanks for dropping by~

  6. @Tina: Oh you should, UDPP has great performance, sigh.. it's just the stupid packaging

    @ndooles: it is! LOL

    @mandy: yeah~ it was! I'm going to try to use it all up before it gets too exposed to the air too much

  7. Hey. I love you blog =) I've been watching your youtube videos and stocking your blog for a while =P
    Just wanna say i love your make up skills i wish I could do that to my eyes as well. I got really puffy swollen eyes so it's a bit hard to do the same thing to me :( I hate it!!
    (it's really weird talking to you in English cause iam Korean hhahaha should i go to Kblog? or just stay here heheh)
    anyway have a good day x

  8. Great post! My bottle is "running out" but I think I'll follow in your footsteps to revive it. Thanks sweetie!

  9. wow, there is a lot of product in there! but i guess that's a good thing right? thanks for sharing!

  10. i'm definitely like you when it comes to wanting to keep products in its original form and packaging, but thanks for sharing this! i've never depotted anything and i think it's about time i do my UDPP.

  11. thanks for sharing! Haven't had to depot mine yet, though. :)

  12. Thank God you managed to salvage it. Did you drop it or something?

  13. You could've used the microwave method dear to save you from cutting and ruining your blade. (:

    Shame that they won't change the packaging. Its so crappy!

  14. Same thing (cracked bottom) happened to my UDPP too. I was wondering for the longest time why my make up bag was dirty until I found out that UDPP was leaking in my make up bag. I had to depot it too.

    UDPP packaging is straight up BAD. Something needs to be done!!!!

  15. @Atelier Beauty: No I didn't :'( I just put it down violently, I should have been careful

    @Dee: what's the microwaving method >m<)??? you have to share that with me!!

    @Rachel: It is bad!! and while depotting I noticed that the formula doesn't even wash off nicely =/ It must have been a b*tch to get all that out. UDPP should really come out with a more practical shaped bottle

  16. i'm amazed on how much product left in the tube. Im thinking that my UDPP is finishing too.. guessed that I have to cut it into half and see how much is left inside.

  17. I am going to depot mine too, and i even bought the "professional" size b/c I thought mine was almost done . . . lol.

    what did you put it in????

  18. I don't know about you guys but I actually laughed really hard when she said that there was a fart noise. I knoww.. really immature but I thought it was hilariousXD
