DIY: Depot Lipsticks

6/02/2015

Hey guys I finally decided to take the plunge and depot all my single lipstick into a palette. This is going to save me a whole lot of time and space and help organise my makeup storage area.


Here's what you'll need:




1. A whole bunch of lipstick.
2. A pallete. In this case I'm using the single 24 well Mac lipstick Palette with clear lid. Each of these wells does not hold a full lipstick. It holds probably about 2/3 depending on the lipstick brand.
3. A knife or a spatula.
4. A flat iron.

I decided to use this method because it is fast and you can control the heat. I used to depot my lipstick individually using a small bowl or a spoon over a lit candle. I find that quite a bit of product (a substantial amount of product) is wasted still coating the spoon after it is poured into the tray. It tends to get messy, a lot of clean ups to be done.
Here's how: 

1. Using a spatula or a knife, cut the lipstick just enough to fill the well



2. Plug the flat iron 

3. Place the palette containing the lipstick on the flat iron using a towel or a thick cloth as a protective layer underneath. 


4. Remove and leave to set.


An even faster way is using a blow drier!!! 

Easy peasy... This way less mess to clean up .

Thinking of depoting your lipsticks? What method will you use? Let me know in the comments.
