How to save your lipstick

Have you ever broken or left your lipstick in the car, and it melted so you just threw it away because it was unusable? Well you no longer have to get rid of your lipsticks. Lipsticks can be expensive so anyway you can save them, you should.

If it melts from being in the car, don’t take the top off, just turn it upright and put it in the refrigerator for about an hour. This will reset the lipstick so you can still use it. It may not be as pretty but it still does the job.

When the lipstick stick breaks you can easily attach it back to the base, if it hasn’t completely fallen out of the tube. Heat the bottom of the lipstick with a blow dryer on low and press the lipstick back into the base of the tube. The heat should attach the lipstick to the lipstick container.

Another smart and easy trick, if you’ve used all the lipstick out of the top or broken the top of the lipstick, you can simply melt it down. You can put the lipstick in the microwave for a few seconds, just until it melts, and then pour it into a palette. It can be poured into any container you choose, like a lip gloss pot, contact lens case, or a pill case. Now you can use your lipstick with a brush. This is a neat way of getting more use out of your lipstick.

One thought on “How to save your lipstick

  1. Having a 6 yr old daughter, she sometimes plays with my makeup. One day her and her little friend got into my lipstick and when then covered them again, they forgot to lower them back into the tube. I ended up with a smushed lipstick. I fixed the lipstick by taking a butter knife and cutting off the mushed part on an angle, similar to the way the lipstick was originally, then I used a little flame and melted the edge where I cut. I got the lipstick back to its normal shape and I can use it again.
