How to Fix a Broken Lipstick

By  | 

My Milani Hot Pink Rage broken a few Saturday’s ago-I was heartbroken. I then decided to check through the internet for how to fix a broken lipstick-I couldn’t let it go or use it broken. Using broken lipsticks just messes with your application. You wouldn’t have a firm grip, and it will continuously tilt to the sides leaving you frustrated. The best way to deal with a broken lipstick is to NOT throw it away-yes, there are trick you can use to bring that lipstick to what it once was before.

Here is the best way to fix a broken lipstick

Tools

  • Broken lipstick
  • Clear, thin disposable gloves
  • Match or lighter
  • Clean workspace area, lined with paper towels

Prepare a clean workspace by placing paper towels on the workspace area.

Wear clear gloves.

Remove the broken piece from the case.

Twist the tube until you get all that’s left of the lipstick at the top of the tube.

Using a clean Q-tip, clean around the base of the lipstick, then smooth it out so your broken piece will have a flat surface.

Using a match or a lighter, carefully run the lit match or lighter underneath the base of the broken part of the lipstick until it becomes soft and begins to melt slightly.

Apply the lighter for just a second to the bottom end of the broken piece.

Use the Q-tip to shape the now-softened bottom end of the broken piece and smooth it out.

Attach the broken piece gently to the base of the lipstick.

TIP: Apply the lighter for just another moment and quickly insert it into the base piece, then twist it into place.

Use the lighter to melt the lipstick together so the top sticks to the bottom, then use to Q-tip to smooth it out.

Put the lipstick in the refrigerator until it is cooled completely.
