WHAT'S NEW, NINA KAT | Reviving Your Broken Products

Hello everyone! My name is Nini Kat and I blog over at What's New,  Nini Kat?
I write about my life, beauty and sometimes my so called fashion! I am here at Courtney's blog to spread the word about a life saving tip I recently discovered! I hope you enjoy.

Picture it. You're fumbling around with your make up in the morning and accidentally drop your favorite eyeshadow. Yes, the one that happened to cost 15 dollars. It's now the end of the world.

Well while digging around the web, I found a pictorial claiming a broken eye shadow or blush can be fixed with just a bit of alcohol. No, not the drinky kind. So I decided to chance it and try it. The results were pretty pleasing!

To begin you will need the broken disaster makeup product, some 70% alcohol and a napkin/spoon/fork.

I began by breaking it up even more. I suspect you are skeptical and as was I. 

Add a few drops of the alcohol. This was a large sized eye shadow so it required a few drops to make a paste. Using an eye dropper is so much easier but sadly I do not have one.

After the product has formed a paste, begin to pack it down using the spoon.

Let it dry for a few hours. Mine came out a little bit messy, but this was a trial run. I didn't want to chance it by ruining my fancy broken shadows just yet. A lot of pinterest fails have occurred under my watch and I wanted to make sure not to make anything worse.

You can't tell in the image but the eye shadow is just as sparkly as before.

Verdict: Pretty much a success!!

Thanks for reading. I was very excited to hear about this method and I hope it helps at least one person :)
