If you have old, dry cream or gel makeup products but you don’t have the desire to throw them away, then rest assured. I have you covered.
When I first purchased my ELF cream eyeliner, I was so happy because I had been on the search for one but, of course, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. That’s just who I am lol. So, I’m at CVS and I see it in this perfect black. It’s only $3.00 so I buy it, go home, and start playing around. It’s nice and pigmented. It glides on effortlessly. I’m pleased to say the least.
I tried my best to keep the top on tightly and let as little air pass through as possible. However, I do come to find out that it does dry out quickly. So, I’m disappointed but I keep it because I knew I could search YouTube and find a solution. I mean, YouTube has solutions for everything right? Keep in mind, I didn’t search for about 9 months, smh lol.
Finally, a few days ago, it came to mind. I came across a video, “How To Get Rid Of Dry Gel Liner Fast“, on Jocelyn Aquino’s channel. For starters I noticed she had the same liner, among others, which is a plus.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- A small spatula or a bobby pin
- a lighter
- setting/finishing spray
- Pump the setting spray one time into the product
- light it up for 5 seconds: flame goes up while you hold the product upside down going towards the flame…(I did 3 seconds because the sound of anything burning concerns me)
- Use your spatula (I used a bobby pin) to mix it up for about a minute and a half…(I only did 30 seconds to a minute)
I was so nervous to do this at first because of the whole “light em up” step but it actually worked. I also tried this on my NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade. Both products are still nice and creamy after a few days of applying this method. Honestly, they work even better than when I originally bought it. I wonder if this will work on cream eyeshadow as well. I guess I’ll have to buy some, purposely let it dry out, and see.
I wish I had thought to take “before” pictures but I simply just wasn’t thinking I would write a post about it. I do apologize. However, the next time I have a dry product I will take a before and after photo for you guys.
Seriously, try this method out. You won’t regret it!
