How To Depot lipstick -Depot Broken Lipsticks


Few of my elle 18  colorburst  lipsticks and Lakme satin enrich lipstick are broken and was looking for a jar to depot them .I cleaned my home made lip balm jar which I used  few months back and thought of making a good use of it by depotting Elle 18 Pomegranate pie lipstick.

Using broken lipstick becomes a cumbersome activity and looks clumsy even if  I  make use of lipstick  brush.Depotting the lipstick into a jar always makes the applying lipstick  much easier and then one can store many like these in a box and take them along while travelling.
