I got an email from a reader named Patti that included a lipstick trick I had to share with everyone (with Patti’s permission of course). She had read my tip for what to do with a tube when you’re at the end of it. I suggested in this article digging out the last bits with a cotton swab, putting them in a lipstick palette and mixing in a bit of Vaseline. I like Patti’s suggestion even more:
I scoop out the end of the tubes and put them in a pill case, the one with the days of the week individually capped, then nuke them until they melt. Use a lip brush and you have 7 lipsticks to go!
Thanks Patti…I can’t wait to try this on my favorite M.A.C. tubes.
