FIX IT! | Dried out lip-stain

****Beautiful Sunday morning****

Good morning Dolls.... Howdy do?

The first set of lip-stains i ever received were the ones i was sent by Sleek Nigeria, *remember?* See review here . Prior to that, i had never owned or used a lip-stain. Out of that set, 'Forbidden' and 'Duke' became my favorites and the ones i used often. And then, as a result of the opening and closing, they both dried out *oh bother!*. The product became really thick and applied in dried bits and little chunks. I really didn't want to toss them because they still had some product inside, so i knew i had to find a way.....any way to fix them.

It took me a while though. First, i tried surfing the internet, but it wasn't so helpful, and i knew that  adding water wouldn't work at all, and so i thought:

 "What if i warmed them up a 'lil bit? That might dissolve the dried chunks".

So i went ahead and got a glass of hot water and then i put the bottles inside it *huge grin*.

Lip-stains warming up in the glass cup

I let them sit there for a while until the steam/warmth/hotness of the water penetrated the little bottles and warmed up the product, and then i opened and pulled the applicator.....this was what i saw.....


The steam did dissolve the dried product and made it liquid and smooth again. It applied easily on my lips *even though it was kinda hot, but i liked the way it felt*. I went ahead and swatched on the back of my hand.

See? No dried bits or streaks.
Boy! I'm so glad that i eventually figured a way to fix you can fix your lip-stains too, all you need to do is boil some water!

Well, i don't know how long before it dries up again, but i'll be ready for it whenever it does *loool*.

I'm glad you learnt this new 'Fix it!' tip....always willing to help.

Have a wonderful day..
