How To: Cracking The Case

Broken makeup compacts may shatter your patience, but you can doctor the most daunting cracks with a little know how.


Using an eyedropper, trickle enough rubbing alcohol onto the broken makeup to form paste, then drag the back of a spoon over it to reshape. Leave it overnight - the alcohol will evaporate, returning the makeup to its original form!

  2. Really ?!
    Perhaps You did not pack it good enough? Maybe the alcohol was not enough to travel within the powder? I tried it last night just to make sure I was not posting something silly... It worked for me but I have not had it thrown in my makeup bag or somewhere else rather.... hmm

    I'll have to post an update.
