Let me gist you..... For the past week or so, i've been experiencing 'writer's block'. I would fire on my lappy, stare at my screen for a while, type up some gibberish, delete them all, shut down the laptop and put it away. Everyday, i would perform this same ritual.
If you are on my BB, then you prolly saw my PM this morning which read ''I want to blog today...i really want to blog today but........''. Most of you urged me on to do a post, but most of all Sisi Yemmie's words got me. When i told her that i didn't know where the words had gone, she said ''Those are the days you have to push yourself harrrrder''. So here i am doing a post.....a 'Fix it!' post.
How have you all been doing? Better than me i hope.
Today, i'll be showing you how to fix your broken lipstick. If you have been throwing your broken lipsticks away, then this pictorial would be veeery helpful. Before i begin, i'll have you know that this was a very painful pictorial to do. I kept on burning my fingers *Ouch!*.
I'm usually very careful with my lipsticks, i hardly break or smash them in the tube *Only Mish does that....she'll not let my lipsticks be!*. So in order to do this pictorial, i had to break one of my lipsticks....yes, i intentionally broke it *the things i do for you ladies!*.
Ooookay...lets get on to it!
All you need to fix your broken lipstick are a box of matches and the lipstick itself.
Pick up the broken off bit, light a match stick, heat up the bottom of the broken bit until it melts a little *it starts melting right away*.
|It took me sooo many tries to get a clear picture, even at that, this one is not so clear, but you have to manage it like that......at least, you get what i'm doing in the picture right? I was just melting the bottom part of the broken bit.|
It should look like this.......
Next, place the melted bottom on the the other part still inside the tube so that it sticks together.
Light another match and burn the point where the broken, glued together edges meet. This will help hold it more firmly.
Smooth the rough edge out with your finger and you're done.
After that, refrigerate the fixed lipstick for a little while to ensure that it gets all solid.
However, if your lipstick is all smashed up in the tube, following the steps above won't help you. Instead, what you should do is to transfer all the smashed up product in the tube into a small container like a lip balm container with a screw-on cover. Then whenever you want to use the lipstick, you apply with a lipbrush straight from the container. Hegai & Esther sells such containers.
I helped you didn't i?
