How to De-pot Your Lipsticks

IMG_4197

Hi Dolls! After accumulating so many lipsticks over the years, I decided to make a lipstick palette. In the past, I found it too much of an annoyance to organize my lipsticks and make room for new ones. I tried the lipstick holder, and other containers, but I find de-potting them to be the most efficient method. In the past, I’ve used clear containers from JoAnne’s & Michael’s, but I prefer the MAC palettes, because their durable, sleek, and inexpensive. With that said, this is how I label and depot my lipsticks.

What You Need

Empty palette

Lipsticks of choice

Metal spatula

Lighter

Metal spoon

Candle

Newspaper/Paper towels

Step 1: Place newspaper/paper towels down on desk, light your candle and place down onto the newspaper. This will limit a messy area.

Step 2: Select your lipstick, twist up, and cut the lipstick at the base with the spatula onto the spoon. Scoop the remaining lipstick thats at the bottom of the tube with the spatula.

Step 3: Hold spoon over candle until lipstick is thoroughly melted

Step 4: Pour lipstick into empty palette and let cool

Step 5: Label your lipstick

Then Repeat!
