yup..the title says it all...
Get udpp in a matter of minutes, this comes in handy for those who are on the go & don't have the time to depot.
For those who uses udpp we know that there's more into the bottle that we just can't reach because of the shape.
Let me tell you...depotting UDPP takes time.
with the cutting that you need to do (& cutting the bottle takes effort too because it's hard!-literally) and the scraping...plus the fact that you have to work a bit fast (the more time the product is exposed to air, the more dries up) not to mention that it's messy...
Say you are in a hurry but you don't have the time to go through all that for the time being, but badly needed to prime your lids, what are you gonna do?
a.) throw udpp on the wall hoping that it would miraculously break in half
b.) talk to it hoping that the product would somehow stick to the wand like a good girl
c.) try to cut it in 2 just to get some then leave the bottle open until you get home to transfer it on a jar
What will it be ladies?
Of course, none of them!
especially not letter C!
that's the worst choice ever..that is unless you really are planning to throw it out & you are about to buy one.
You can do something about it for the time being until you find the time to do the depotting.
So, how can you get some product without cutting it in half?
Most products that uses an applicator have a plastic scraper a right to scrape the excess product. You see this in lip gloss...that little plastic that sits at the edge of the rim is the culprit...
I marked the scraper here...although i know that it's pretty obvious where it is..lol
What you need to do is remove it so that you can swirl the wand around the tube to scrape the product...
I just found this out when one day i said to myself that im gonna depot my udpp asap but haven't found the time to do so & it irks me that every time i need to use it, i have to tap it on a hard surface hoping that some product would be somehow stuck in the wand so that i can scoop some out...
Then i just decided to pop the scraper open one day & see if i can scoop some out. So i did...
Just run a knife..or any flat metal on the scraper to loosen it a bit then pull it out..
The scraper scrapes the extra product off the wand but it limits the movement of the wand & it just stays in one direction. If you take it off, you can move the wand to scrape the product.
This also applies to glosses.
If you want to maximize your favorite gloss, you can do so by removing the scraper.
There you go...
Hope you find this tip handy..
Does any of you know a complete make-up palette that fits on a small purse?
