Should lipstick be blotted? You should blot after each step you do in the preparation and application of your lip products. (Try using an oil-blotting sheet instead of a tissue. It will work much better and won’t leave lint on your lips!) Color:Now it’s time for the fun part — color!
Can you get an infection from old lipstick? If bacteria get into an open container or onto a brush, they can multiply rapidly and cause breakouts or other infections. Mold is another common issue with old cosmetics because moisture builds up inside containers over time, leading to mold growth.
What to do with old lipsticks?
- Use it as a blush. An old trick in the book, use your creme lipstick in red, peach, or pink as a blush by applying it on the apples of your cheeks.
- Use it as an eyeshadow. Work the gloss trend by using your liquid lip gloss (clear or glitter) on your eye lids.
- Use it as a lip tint.
How do you combine old lipsticks? All you have to do is add 4-5 drops of cold-pressed coconut oil to bring your lipsticks back to life. Shake the tube well and let it sit for 5 minutes; then go ahead and apply the lipstick. Scoop out fresh aloe vera gel and add some to the dried lipstick bottle. Give it a mix and apply after 5 minutes.
