It’s been a long time since my last post. Anyways, I wanna share something for all the lipstick junkies out there. We all know that for every lipstick we own always ends up almost at the bottom of the tube especially if it is our favorite one and when it gets there, we usually don’t bother to use it anymore. Another thing is that when lipsticks start to melt or when they are broken, trying to fix them up tends to be very messy. So, I’ve got a simple solution. De-tubing those lipstick bullets! Yes, you might have heard of eyeshadow de-potting. We also have de-tubing for lipsticks.
To start off, you need a small container like the picture below. Make sure it is clean. You may find the same at your local thrift or dollar shop. It usually comes with a tiny spatula. If you do’t have this cutie spatula then you may use a popsicle stick. .
Then, prepare your lipstick that you want to de-tube. Mine happens to be my NYX Lipstick in IRIS. It melted a bit and was broken, so I decided to end up her agony and de-tube her. Hehehehehe!
Okay, so you will be using the tiny spatula to get the lipstick bullet out of its tube and place it inside the container. Just be careful not to drop it. To be safe, lay a piece of paper towel under the container.
Don’t forget to get it all out especially at the bottom part of the tube and begin spreading it evenly with the spatula as seen below.
I hope you guys find this post helpful. Thanks and stay beautiful!
