I’ve been on this hardcore depotting and decanting journey for the past couples months now. It’s really been a few years of trying to figure out how to make my kit more streamline, lightweight but still have everything I might possibly need on my weddings. So I wanted to share a little snippet of the decanting of my @lamer foundations from original glass bottle, to a squeezable plastic tube to (the final product), an airless pump bottle.
I only carry 7 shades of this beautiful foundation so I can mix appropriately (if I need more customization I use my @faceatelier adjusters). Although the weight is a bit skewed because it’s nearly empty, if I had kept my foundations in their glass bottle (which is 5.1oz), in theory, it would be roughly give me an added 35.7oz (or 2.23lbs). We will skip over the @mujiusa squeezable tubes which, again, was skewed because the foundation wasn’t actually in there.
Comparing the original glass La Mer bottles to the new airless pump bottles, you’re looking at a 4.3oz difference just between the two. If you add up the 7 airless pump bottles, and compare that to the original glass ones, you’re looking at a total weight of 4.9oz (or 0.3 of a lb!) That is an overall difference of 30.8oz (or 1.93lbs!) And, not to mention, it takes ups loads less space because of how compact the new bottle is.
Let me know if you guys want to see more of these types of posts. Like I said, I’ve been on this hardcore depotting and decanting journey for the past couple months and it’s been fun (and trying) to see what works and what doesn’t.
