Imagine reaching for your all-time favorite liquid lipstick only to open it and find a dry, chunky, mess inside the tube. Don’t cry and say your farewells just yet because we have some tips on how you can fix dried out liquid lipstick and bring that lippie back from the afterlife. We’ve got you and your lippies’ back, sis!
Fix Dried Out Liquid Lipstick
Applying a super dry liquid lipstick is the literal worst! It’s not a good look and it feels so uncomfortable to be slaying about your day with the world’s driest and flakiest lips. We love liquid lipsticks because they provide a smooth AF application, crisp and clean lines, and they don’t dry out your lips BUT when your lipstick starts drying out, these are nearly impossible! Avoid tossing out your must-have lippie by trying these quick fixes.
The first hack for dried up liquid lipstick is to place your liquid lipstick tube in hot water for about 10-15 minutes. Don’t submerge the cap to avoid getting any water inside the tube that can potentially ruin your liquid lipstick! Placing it in hot water will help warm up the product and loosen it up a little and help it go on as smooth as butter.
If the first tip for reviving dried up liquid lipsticks didn’t really do the trick, we’re positive this one will! Inglot’s Duraline will be your BFF for rehydrating your dried out liquid lipsticks. This product is a transparent liquid that will prolong a makeup product’s durability without ruining the formula like typical fixes will (alcohol, aloe vera gel, vaseline, etc).
Yes, it sounds amazing (because it is) but you need to be careful with how much you add into your liquid lipstick. Add too much and your lipstick won’t dry down anymore or you’ll end up with a super runny mess! The trick is to add drop by drop until your liquid lipstick starts lookin’ normal. Remember to shake the bottle instead of mixing with the wand so you don’t get excess air into the tube! Voíla, your liquid lipstick will go on so smooth like nothing ever happened.
