Well, I agree with the most of you when you guys complained that you waste so much product and the packaging needs to be better. So, i cut my bottle in half to see for myself and YUp...A LOT more product left!!

So, I wrote to Urban decay...I dunno how many of you wrote to them or not..but here was the response:

Hi there,

Thanks for loving our Eyeshadow Primer Potion so much, and fiending for every last drop! we know a small amount of product sticks to the inside of our "genie bottle", but rest assured that the amount of applications that the bottle produces through the wand is what you pay for. The Primer Potion should yield approximately two months worth of use if you apply daily.

You bang your conditioner bottle on the shower wall, leave your lotion upside down over night, and scoop out your favorite lipstick with a Q-tip...you'll always find a bit left behind in most products if you work hard enough. So, if you are crafty enough to crack into your bottle, please take conservative safety measures! Urban Decay is not responsible for any missing fingers, cuts, injuries, or any other calamity that might happen.

Our customers are always our top priority. We would never produce anything that would be intentionally misleading. Asa loyal urban Decay fan, it would be fantastic if we could contact you in the future as part of our "Primer Potion Research and Development Study Group" while we research other options. Your feedback is important to us, so please feel free to contact us with any other concerns or comments.
