Don't throw out that "empty" tube of Urban Decay Primer Potion!

We all know that Urban Decay's Primer Potion is one of *the best* eyeshadow primers out there. I have loved it for years and have not found a primer that comes close to offering the staying power that UDPP does. What some of us don't know though, is that although you are paying for a 0.34 oz ounce tube, you are only getting approximately 0.09 ounce of product before the tube is "empty"! After reading somewhere online (I'm sorry, it's been a while since I read it, so I can't remember exactly where) that a lot of product still remained in the "empty" tube, I decided to cut my empty tube open and see what, if anything, was left. I was completely shocked at what I found.

Once I could no longer get product out of my tube, I cut it open, top and bottom, to investigate
what I had read. Sure enough, there was a LOT left.

This is the tube, cut top and bottom:

This is a shot of the inside of the "empty" tube:

This is all the product that I scraped out of the "empty" tube:

The container that I put the remaining Primer Potion in is a 0.25 ounce jar. It filled the jar up and even went over the top a bit. The tube of UDPP is listed as 0.34 ounces. This means that you are getting less than 0.09 ounces of product before the tube seems empty and nothing else comes out on the applicator!

So, next time your tube of UPDD seems empty, try cutting it open and see how much is left. You will be surprised!
