DIY : FIX YOUR BROKEN LIPSTICK

                             

                                  Buttery soft lipsticks tend to melt during hot weather or even when a little more pressure is applied. I have experienced it with many lipsticks (blame Chennai weather). Since I dint know how to fix them, all that I would do is trash it into the bin. Not ANYMORE!!. So here’s my DIY to fix your 
beloved broken lipstick.







It is so simple, all that you need is just a hair dryer and your broken lipstick.





 Here I have used hair dryer because direct heat damages lipstick. And there are chances that you may hurt your fingers too.

Just hold the hair dryer directly above the lipstick tube for 2-3 minutes until the lipstick melts.
.





After this, fix the broken piece onto the lipstick tube and press it with a slight pressure.
Once the broken piece gets stuck, excess wax stays surrounding the bullet like this.



Scrap the excess and store it in the refrigerator for few hours.
TADAAAAA !! Your broken lipstick is now ready to be used.. :D

Happy weekend :)

  11. Nice idea. If it becomes too tiny, scoop it and put it in a small box and use it with a lip brush :)
