Step 2. Add a couple of drops of water to the makeup container.

Step 3. Distribute the water evenly.

Step 4. Put the powder product back in the container.

How to fix broken lipstick: Method 1

What you’ll need:

  • A lighter
  • A refrigerator

Step 1. Take the broken part of the lipstick and slightly warm it up with a lighter. Don’t hold the lighter too close, about 2 inches away is enough distance. You should make it sticky, but don’t melt it completely.

Step 2. Attach the broken piece back to the base of the lipstick.

Step 3. Wait for about 60 seconds and gently close the lipstick.

Step 4. Put the lipstick in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours so the parts can properly stick back together. Your makeup product is fixed!

Step 1. Remove all the makeup product from the original container and put it into a tiny pan or any other container you’re going to use to warm the lipstick.

Step 2. Warm the product up over a lighter, a candle, or a stove until it’s turned into a liquid, with a similar consistency to a soup.

Step 3. Pour the melted product into the makeup container of your choice.

Step 4. Let the product dry and your makeup product is fixed!
