So your favorite lipstick just ran out, don’t throw it out just yet! This super easy makeup hack will let you enjoy your lipstick a bit longer.
- Your old lipstick
- An old eye shadow container
- Microwaveable bowl
- Small Spoon
First scoop the lipstick with the end of your small spoon into the microwaveable bowl.
Once you’ve scooped it all out, microwave for 30 seconds.
Microwave for an additional 30 seconds if it hasn’t completely melted. Here’s what it should look like:
My bowl was a little hot to the touch, so I did use a kitchen towel to grab the bowl and pour the melted lipstick into my empty eye shadow container. The lipstick does cool down pretty fast, so if it hardens before you’ve poured it all, heat up in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds and pour again.
Here is the final product, once I’ve poured it all in.
I am loving this hack. My favorite lipstick, MAC’s Twig, had ran out and before I rushed to buy another, I decided to try this instead. Since it’s now in a different container, you can use your finger or a small lip brush to apply to your lips.
So before you toss out that almost empty lipstick, try this and extend it’s life just a bit more. Let me know if you try this super easy lipstick hack. Enjoy!
