I was so upset!
I was part of a beauty product swap and was excited to receive one of the Australis Palettes I had been reading about: The Bronze Eyed Girl Palette.
When I opened it to sample it a few days later, I discovered one of the colours was broken!
So upsetting. But I hate throwing in the towel. I heard about girls fixing not only eyeshadows but other compacts when they were broken as well, so I set out to google the solution.
I was going to have a go.
This is what you need:
- Rubbing Alcohol
- A spoon, or a stick, or just use your finger
Scoop as much of the eyeshadow back in the pan.
Drizzle enough alcohol on the pan to be able to smooth out the colour. It becomes quite creamy.
Smooth and press into the pan with your finger, or with the back of a spoon or whatever else you can think of.
Tidy up around the pans. And VOILÁ! Good as new!
The alcohol evaporates and leaves the powder the same consistency as the others. I was wondering if the texture would be different from the others, but I don’t believe it has altered.
Here is some swatches.
There is no difference in texture.
I hope this helps and helps you rescue your broken pretties!
