DIY - How to Fix a Dried Out Cream Gel Liner

Let's face it, we can do everything right when it comes to trying to keep our gel and cream eyeliners from drying out.

This basically includes screwing the lid on tightly and not leaving them open to long.

Even with doing that day end and day out they can still dry out before their expiration date.

There are tons of methods out there for reviving them and bringing them back to life.

I am going to share with you one way that I have found that works for me time and time again.

It will save you money on eyeliners and allow you to get the most value out of the eyeliners you have already spent your hard earned cash on.


Items you will need:

-The dried out cream/gel eyeliner

-e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer
(It can be purchased online here at http://www.elfcosmetics.com/p/mineral-face-primer or at target.com for $6.)

-A bobby pin or any other object that can be using for mixing

Are you ready for this simple DIY?

1. Open the eyeliner.

2. Take the e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer and press one pump of the product into the eyeliner.

3. Take your mixing tool and mix the primer into the eyeliner until it is smooth.

That's it!

I can honestly say that this is the best method that I have tried. I have done this on Maybelline, L'Oreal, and ColourPop liners and I am getting ready to do it on one of my MAC ones.

I have noticed that my liner glides on easily and has the same staying power as before.

All of the ones that I have done are still going strong a year later.

I have yet to see one dry out again!

Try it for yourself and let me know how it works for you!

If you plan on purchasing any of the e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer online, don't forget to go through Ebates first prior to purchasing.

Below is my referral link to Ebates (currently 6.5% cash back for e.l.f. for any of you who are interested in signing up.

First time Ebates users will earn a $10 cash back bonus when they make purchases totaling at least $25 within 90 days of signing up.

Who doesn't love to earn free money that can then be used for buying more makeup?

It's genius really.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette - Makeup of the Day

A couple of weeks ago I used my Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette to create a look.

How could you not, right?

I don't know who I'm kidding.

I couldn't wait to dive into this palette.

It's so beautiful and has become my favorite Too Faced Palette, hands down.


Here's the look that I came up with.





Here's how I created the look:

All over the eye to help blend out the shadows - Peaches N' Cream

Crease - Georgia and Candied Peach

1st half of the lid up to the crease - Luscious

2nd half of the lid up to the crease - Just Peachy

Inner corner and Brow Bone - Nectar

Then I popped on some liner, mascara, and lashes (I didn't even realize that one lash had way more glitter than the other one until I was doing taking pictures, C'est La Vie)

Lips are ColourPop's Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park.



Have you picked up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette and if so, do you love it?

This palette has quickly become one of my favorite palettes hands down.

From the packaging, to the scent, to the actual shade range, to the pigmentation, this palette is a must have and is perfect for Summer (I am going to use it year round!)

It is limited edition, but check Ulta, Sephora, and HSN for possible restocks.

What am I saying?

Stalk these sites!!!

ColourPop Ripa and Poppin Swatches - Youtube Video

Colourpop Lippie Stix are amazing. In this video I swatch two limited edition ones.



ColourPop Poppin' and Ripa Swatches

Colourpop released a limited edition Lippie Stix when they reached 2 million followers on Instagram.

The Lippie Stix is called Poppin and was packaged in a pink tube.

It is described as a berry fuchsia and was available for free when you spent a minimum of $10 on Colourpop's website.

To get the Poppin' Lippie Stix I picked up Colourpop's Ripa Lippie Stix and Lip Pencil.


Swatched from left to right - Poppin', Ripa Lippie Stix, and Ripa Lip Pencil.


Poppin' swatched below on my lips.


I was looking on ColourPop's website and I could no longer find the Ripa collection so I am not sure if it is still available.

Due to the fact that Poppin' was a special limited edition shade that was only available for a limited time, it is no longer available.

Check out Colourpop here:

https://colourpop.com/

I filmed a video on the swatches that can be viewed here https://youtu.be/Pqub5FfNAs0

Were you able to snag Poppin' or Ripa while they were available?
