This is too much fun, and will save you $$$. While cleaning last week I rediscovered my bag full of old MAC lipsticks, all the pale pinks I’ve worn over the past couple years. I’ve been saving them up because MAC has a recycling program, bring in 6 empty plastic containers and get a free lipstick! I literally could not sleep the other night thinking about the amazing pink palette I was going to make. Haha, total makeup geek, I know!
Today I went to one of my fav beauty stores and purchased a JAPONESQUE-Lipstick Palette Kit. So stoked! $18.99. It comes with the perfect 8 pan palette, a spatula, a melting/pouring bowl and a lip brush. SCORE!
I then laid out all my fav lipsticks and arranged them in the order I wanted.
Here’s the key, most people get to where their lipstick is flat and they cant apply it anymore, and they toss it. NOOO, Don’t Do It! There’s still half a tube of lipstick left in the bottom half of the case. People are throwing out their lipsticks half used.
So take the spatula, and scrape out every ounce of lipstick until theres nothing left, and wipe it all off into the melting bowl.
Then place the bowl in the microwave for 40-60 seconds. The bowl is rubber so its ok to microwave, however it does get really hot.
Let it cool for a few seconds, bend the bowl a bit and pour it into the selected slot. Fill it to the brim but not over.wipe the bowl clean while the lipstick is still in liquid form, it cleans super easy.
Then Repeat until all the slots are filled….Take a pointed QTip and wipe the edges so it looks nice and neat.
Isn’t she pretty????
And Finally, gather all your empty containers, march them back into the MAC store and cash in on a brand new lipstick!!
This saves so much room in my personal makeup bag, and now that I’ve done this for me, I will definitely be doing this for my makeup kit. Like most people Im a creature of habit and I definitely have my favorite colors that I stick to. Yet I carry around a million lipsticks. This will lighten my load and make my job so much easier.
Hope you give it a try!! xoxox
