waking up and seeing...

MY LIPSURGENCES MELTED INTO THE TUBES!! i went to go grab one to use today and NOTHING. they all just melted!! i had my three favorites that were full sized along with nine deluxe sized ones (from the holiday set this past christmas and one mini i got last year) sitting on a container and when i open them, nothing! they're all down into the tubes and when i try to twist it up it's like it's stuck and they're all mashed within the bottom of the tube. i don't know how this could have happened, it's freezing cold where i am and the heat wasn't even on! ):

 

sorry this might not interest many of you guys but i'm so upset that i wanted to vent and my boyfriend is just telling me to calm down and that it's "just lipsticks". has anyone else experienced this?!

Awwww, I'd be so upset, too! Boyfriends don't always understand, but BT girlfriends do!

I am incredibly sorry for your loss!

Are any of them salvageable if you somehow scrape out what is left and make a lip palette using a multi-day pill container? I know it isn't the same, but it is better than having to toss them all.

i would if i could!! unfortunately i think they melted inside the tubes, like wayyy down the bottom and they're sitting right in between the space where the product sits and where you twist them ):

Maybe hold them upside down over the container and blast them with a hairdryer? I think if you found a way to remelt them you could pour them into a new container.

It almost looks like a hair dryer or flat iron got left near them and the residual heat melted them.  It's definitely heat of some kind.

 

Ummmmm why do you keep sriracha on your vanity?  Is there some hot sauce beauty tip I've never heard?

lol don't think that's her vanity - pretty sure it's the kitchen counter!  :smileyhappy:

Too funny! Just noticed the rack of clean dishes on the other side of the counter! :smileyvery-happy:

 

So sorry this happened to you, crystal! I hope you can figure out what the source of the problem was!

Re: waking up and seeing...

you could heat them in hot water- the product is waxy and should rise to the top then you can skim it off the surface? just an idea- I have no clue if it would work though.

that is SO sad and frustrating. Your BF may not understand, but take comfort in knowing that a few of us here are feeling the pain with you.
