Urban Decay Primer Potion….the holiest of holy grail primers in my books. You can try and tell me Too Faced has your primer business but for me it’s all about the UDPP.
Although the genie bottle packaging isn’t quite everyone’s cuppa. And I’ve nearly sliced a finger or two off trying to get the last of the primer out of the bottle, in the end, I realized it wasn’t worth it.
When it was released in a tube I think the world stopped. A tube? Really? This was the packaging we needed, we wanted, we had to have…this was nirvana….
I purchased a tube and was very happy with it but realized it had a six month use up period…I couldn’t get through it. Particularly because it was the major size, like major size. Prior to the six month period I noticed the formula got super hard to squeeze out of the tube and morphed slightly…
I purchased a second tube, smaller size….this formula was crap-tastic. I literally stopped using it after a week. I find that Primer Potion is thinner in the genie bottle versus the thickness of the smaller tube. I dunno maybe I sound odd but the smaller tube versus the larger tube versus the genie bottle…each formula was different….my main beef with the smaller tube was it reminded me of Shadow Insurance (which I hate) but didn’t have separating issues like Shadow Insurance. Secondly, my shadow was NOT bulletproof…I experienced a quite a bit of creasing with this “new” formula.
Moral of the story?
I bottle it.
No more tubin’ for me.
Thank GOD, Urban Decay still kept the original package. I hope they continue to do so. For me, it’s worth the hassle of using the genie bottle.
Do you tube it?
Or bottle it?
Did you feel the smaller tubes had a bit of a different formula compared to genie bottles?
