Welcome to Pinterest Tested! Ever wonder if that miracle cleaner is really miraculous? Or what about that homemade facial cleanser or delicious-looking recipe? This is the place to find out! Each Monday I am testing Pins that catch my eye to see if they really live up to the claims made on Pinterest. It's like the Mythbusters of Domesticity!
I can't tell you how many compacts I have dropped and had all the makeup break into a million pieces. It's always a sad day...makeup is expensive and I hate replacing it just because I'm a doofus with butterfingers. I saw this Pin and was excited to try it on a compact I had broken just a few days before. It was like fate! Ha ha.
Here is the sad state of my makeup before:
All you need is some regular isopropyl alcohol and something to stir it with. I used a popsicle stick.
First you crush the makeup into a fine powder. Then add alcohol to the makeup until you can get it to a smooth, spreadable consistency. Think peanut butter.
Mine looked a little clumpy in this picture, so I added a little more alcohol after I took the picture.
Then you smooth it out the best you can:
Leave it overnight or until it's completely dry.
