How to fix a Broken Lipstick in 5 easy steps: DIY,Tutorial with images

Out of all the hell that can break on a beauty junkie, two things top my list (tell me what makeup mishap you have experienced)..  
One- a missed sale and Two- a broken lipstick...!!!
To me a broken lipstick is directly proportional to a broken heart,worst still if you splurged on it! But Boy Oh Boy! We fixed it!!
See How!


Things You Will Need :
  • A broken lipstick off course.
  • A hand sanitizer
  • Paper towels/Tissues
  • Candle or lighter
  • Match sticks (if you are using a candle)
  • Cotton buds
  • Refrigerator :P
Method:
1. Wash your hands,sanitize them and spread a paper towel on your work station as it might get messy.


2. Slightly heat up the tube from where the lipstick got uprooted over a candle or lighter. Similarly heat the bottom of the lipstick bullet too. Make sure both the ends become flat.


3. Apply a little pressure and fix the lipstick over the bullet and refrigerate it for 2-3 hours. I place the lipstick in deep freeze for half an hour though.

4. Once fixed, take the lipstick out of the freezer and clean the bullet with a tissue.


5. Now roll the lipstick bullet over the candle flame for 2-3 seconds to achieve a ridge free,seamless finish! Voila..!! Done!
 
Hope it Helps..!!
