How to: repair a broken lipstick

Just the other day I was about to apply one of my favourite lipsticks only to find it was broken! Gasp! I was gutted, to say the least, but instead of throwing it away (which is a total waste of money), I decided to try and fix it.

I’d heard from a very reliable source – Kiwi lipstick Queen, Karen Murrell – to be precise, that the easiest way to repair a broken lipstick is with a match. Yes, that’s right, a match!

All you need do is light a match and hold it under the broken part until the lipstick starts to melt a little. Then, immediately put it back on the base, (from which it broke), and wind the lipstick back down into the canister. The next step is to pop it in the fridge, uncovered for about five minutes. Voila! It’s that easy.
