Adventures in dissection

One of my favorite products to use for makeup is Urban Decay Primer Potion. I've been using this since it came out, at least since I was able to get my hands on it after the huge frenzy died down.

However, I have haaaaaated the stupid packaging. Okay I get it, it's a magical genie in a bottle that helps with my makeup, but really, couldn't you pick better packaging?

Too faced did it with a squeeze bottle, how come Urban Decay can't. They need to stop with their druggie names and pick better packaging.

So I decided to be knife-happy and rescue my primer potion from its confines. Many others have done this and in fact I was inspired by Clumps of Mascara and that post.

I chose this old fluidline jar I had. The reason I did was because I had heard plastic containers made gels and the primer dry out too fast so glass was supposed to help.

has another suggestion as to what to do with the decanted primer potion. I wanted to use my jars up so I used that but I think the pens would be good too!

Do you see how the shape of the bottle means that the wand can't get to it? To be fair, Urban Decay has revamped the wand but even then, it's still difficult to get to.

This is what I got out of my primer potion bottle. I've had this bottle for over a year so that's quite a bit leftover.

Be careful if you end up doing this, cutting open the bottle can be a bit dangerous.
