So I’m here to help you out! Keep reading to find out how!
How To: Mend Broken Lipstick
What You Need:
- Broken Lipstick
- Hair Dryer
Step 1: Use your hair dryer to heat up the said lipstick until it looks like it is starting to melt slightly (you don’t want it to get too hot where you lipstick is left in a puddle, that is beyond help).
Step 2: Take your fingers and mold and press the lipstick back into it’s original state. It will look a little warped from when you first bought it at the store, but remember it did break.
Step 3: Once you have smoothed out the cracks and tried to put it back together the best way you can pop it in your freezer. You can leave it for a few hours or overnight. I prefer overnight just to make sure it has sat for enough time.
Step 4: Take your lipstick out the next day and let it thaw out, and now it’s just like new…well close. The main thing is the color is exactly the same, and it still works, it just may look a little funny!
So see how easy peasy that is? I didn’t get a picture of me using the hair dryer, because I don’t have an extra arm haha. But this is literally the easiest way to fix a broken lipstick. Lipsticks can break for many reasons but the most common is leaving it in the car and it gets too hot and breaks off when you apply it, especially if you apply it as soon as you get in the car.
Maybe this will come in handy one of these days! :)
Lipstick in this post is MAC’s Ruby Woo, their most popular classic red.
Have you ever broken a lipstick? Did you just throw it away thinking it wasn’t able to be fixed?
