    Depot Lipsticks

    If you have a bunch of lipstick and you find it difficult to travel with all at once then you should consider to depot your lipstick into a palette. This technique is mostly done by makeup freelancers that have to travel with beauty items to their clients on a day-to-day basis. To depot, lipsticks make it easier for them as they can travel much lighter and see the shade of lipsticks in just one glance rather than opening and closing lipstick lids.

    If you have broken lipstick and you wish to save them then this method is just for you. To depot, lipstick is safe and easy. You can use heat to melt your lipstick but it is not highly recommended. Melting lipstick can alter the formula of the lipstick, especially if it’s a glossy, glitter or matte lipstick. Matte lipsticks are more durable in the heat but the pigment separate and can settle at the bottom of the palette wells.

    MAC Lipsticks

    To Depot Lipstick without heat you will need the following items:

    • Lipstick
    • Palette (MAC Pro Palette)
    •  Surface Pro or metal plate
    •  Spatula
    • Q-tips
    • Rubbing alcohol
    • Gloves

    Follow the instructions on how to depot lipsticks

    1: Ensure that your items use in this processed is sanitized

    2: Take your lipstick of choice and scroll it up and use the spatula to cut it off from the base of the tube onto your Surface pro or metal plate.

    3: Use your spatula and remove what is left of the base of the lipstick and place it into your palette well, if the lipstick is very hard then you can crush it out on the Surface Pro/metal plate before placing it into the palette wells.

    4: Fill and spread the lipstick in the wells evenly or until satisfied.

    5: Take the lipstick tip that was cut off from Step 2 and place it back into the tube.

    6: Repeat process until all the wells are completely filled.

    7: Use the q-tips along with the rubbing alcohol to clean up the areas around the lipstick wells.

    All of the lipstick will not hold in one well, so be sure to cut the lipstick in a reasonable size; to be able to fit into the palette wells. You can take the lipstick off the top if you prefer but you might lose the angle or shape of the lipstick; if you do not cut in the angle as how it first came. You might be amazed by the amount of lipstick that is at the bottom of the tube. This can also be difficult to use when the lipstick is almost near to the tube and looks like a stub.

    If you are looking for that smooth finish you can leave your palette in a warm environment and allow the lipsticks to soften for a while but do not apply too much heat or the palette will become messy. This can be more time consuming but a lot safer than applying direct heat by using a spoon.

    Advantages of not using heat to melt lipstick

    • It does not ruin the quality of your lipstick
    • It does not ruin the container
    • And you do not need to use fire
    • Less work


    •   Not neat enough
    • Time-consuming

    I went by MAC cosmetics in search of MAC lipstick in the colour Relentlessly Red and a brow set unfortunately they were all sold out. Anyhow the sales clerk pointed out three other shades that are a little similar to Relentlessly Red those of the three are: All Fired Up, La Vie En Route and Dama Glamorous which is a bit brighter in colour than the others. I fell in love with all three and I found it difficult to select one.

    After thoroughly going through all the shades they had available on the lipstick rack I decided to go with Flat Out Fabulous, All Fired Up and a Lip Pencil namely Currant.

    Well I was inspired by the sales clerk to purchase the Lip Pencil in Currant, she was wearing it with Candy Yum Yum, it was so pretty on her lips. I had already own Candy Yum Yum, so I didn’t have to purchase it.
