I have a trick that a friend recently taught me. Apparently, everyone knew this except me...Grab a cup of hot water. The temperature of the water should be what you would use for a cup of tea. Fill the cup enough to cover the lip gloss tube up to the top. Make sure the cover is not submerged in water. Have the water hit the tube about a half inch below where the tube cover or cap is.
Wait about 10 minutes and you will see the lip gloss inside will just melt off of the insides of the clear tube. You will see all the lip gloss pool to the bottom. This works so well. It's unreal that I never knew about this one...I could have saved so much money...
Guess what. I checked my make up bag and found my dried up mascara that I also need to replace very soon. I dunked that into the hot water. This also works on mascara!
This was how it looked before...Dried up and on its last lap.
Have a GREAT weekend all!
