To make sure that you used up the entire product you paid for, you should know how to de-bottle the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer. Since it has a genie bottle shape which is narrow at the end, you only get 1/3 of the content you paid for. So in order to conserve, there are 3 steps to de-bottle your primer. First, cut the bottle horizontally using a knife. It is important not to use a serrated knife to avoid cutting self on sharp plastic edges. Second, scoop out the remaining contents of the primer and place it in an airtight container. It is important to use an airtight container because the primer will dry out and will be unusable. Lastly, after scooping, cut the base of the bottle horizontally and scoop out the remaining contents at the base part.
To some, primers may not be that important. Others do not use it. But why should we use a primer really? Just like in painting a house before the actual paint, a first coat is used to assure that the paint will last long. Same goes with the eyeshadow primer, it is our assurance that what we look after finishing our make- up is the same look we get after finishing the end of the day.
