How to repair a broken lipstick in four simple steps
As far as beauty blunders go, few things are more frustrating than breaking your favourite lipstick.
But don’t toss it out just yet - there’s a way to turn your luck back around. So whether it’s completely flat, overly arched or just worn to the bone, this simple four-step trick from Today will transform your lippie back into its original shape. All you need is a naked flame, and a couple of minutes.
STEP 1: Light a candle.
STEP 2: Hover the lipstick over the flame of the candle to soften the bullet. Just be sure to keep it at a safe distance so it doesn’t melt!
STEP 3: Use a spoon to gently press the top of the bullet at a 45 degree angle.
STEP 4: Let it sit for around five minutes or until the bullet has hardened.
And there you have it - your lipstick should be as good as new again!
