If you have UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) in original or Sin, and you haven’t “depotted” it, then you must follow these steps! You’re missing out on at least, AT LEAST half of the product inside if you chuck it after nothing else comes off the wand. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. Good luck!
See step-by-step pictures and directions! Start out with your UDPP, a steak knife, a pot to put the product in (I use the clear MAC ones) and possibly a spatula to scrape out the excess with (the wand from the UDPP could be used instead), and a cutting board.
Cut into the bottle at the thickest part (the bulbus (hehe funny word!)). It takes some elbow grease! You don’t need to cut all the way through – rotate it a little and make sure you leave a little attached because it’s easier to manuver.
Bend the top back. Look at all that product!!!
Scoop out as much as you can and scrape it into the empty pots.
After you’ve scooped out as much as possible, cut off the bottom part.
Still even more product!!!
Scrape out everything you can into the jar!
Look, it’s full!!! Amaaaaazing! :-)
…and the leftovers
Look at how empty it is!
Voila! Let me know if you have any questions! :-)

I did this with my regular UDPP and it somewhat dried up. Didn’t work as well depotted. Have you experienced this after depotting?
