Beauty Dilemma Solved: Maximizing the life of your lipstick
By: Faith Nicole
We’ve all been there. We have finally found our go to lipstick that we wear nearly every day and now the tube is gone. Or so you think. You see cosmetic companies have been tricking you into thinking that your lipstick tube is empty when it’s not. There is surprisingly quite a bit of lipstick left; enough to last at least another few weeks.
I first showed Nia this trick about a month or so ago when she thought her lipstick was all gone. I showed her a method commonly used by makeup artists called “depotting.” Basically you take the product from one container and move it into another one. For professionals, we do this to cut down on the size of our kit. For consumers, this method is helpful for maximizing the length of your product.
To do this at home all you need is your lipstick, a small spatula of some sort and another container. You can use the back of a makeup brush, back of a piece of silverware or some other small object that will fit into the small diameter of the lipstick tube. You can use an empty pill organizer or a cute silver tin to put the excess lipstick in.
Basically you take your spatula and stick it in the lipstick tube. You want to scrape it out so that you get as much of the product out as possible. Then you simply transfer it to your empty tin. You can use a lip brush to put your lipstick on now and you can take it on the go! If you want it to be smooth again it is possible but you have to be careful. You can simply melt the product on a low temperature in the oven. Be careful with plastic so you don’t melt it as well!
And that’s all there is to it! Oh and if you want a quicker way to free lipstick from a certain brand sold at department store, this is a quicker way to get there!

Sure you can pay for amazing falsies or spend your hard owned money on expensive mascara but why when you can naturally grow your lashes to beautiful lengths?! And of course you can try out the new eye brow extensions or simply try to pencil in the perfect brow but why when you can grow them out and have the shaped by a professional?!
Something I’ve heard my elders talk about many times and I’ve never tried, until now, is castor oil. Castor oil is used for many home remedies to cure a cold, the flu and more but I’ve recently be introduced to how it can make your eye lashes and brows grow. It is said that castor oil is rich in natural fats that promote healthy hair growth.
I recently read how to do it in a simple statement from dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC.
Dip your brush into the bottle of castor oil. Be sure to tap off the excess oil. Apply to your lashes from the base to the tip/brush through your natural brow line. Do this nightly before bed.
Results vary but you should see growth in approximately a month. Take a picture before your very first application and another after a couple of months to chart your growth.
Happy growing and be sure to comment on your growth below! 🙂
Don’t you hate it when you are about to do a quick polish change to match your outfit and you can’t get the bottle of nail polish open?! This has happened to me countless times and every time it happens I’m yelling at my “Mister” to come help me get this bottle open. Oh the struggle!
Well struggle no more becuase I found a method that will save you man power and the headache of trying to get that stubborn bottle of nail polish open!
Here are the supplies you will need:
Fill your jar or bowl with extremely hot water from the faucet. Place the bottle of nail polish upside down in your jar/bowl full of water. Let sit for 2 minutes.
Remove the bottle and attempt to open. If you aren’t able to open the bottle repeat the full process with fresh hot water.
Once you get the bottle open use nail polish remover and a paper towel to clean off any access polish for the top of the bottle.
