Some time back I did a little DIY Project by fixing my broken palette. I’m trying to use up my Chanel Les Beiges Powder in 50 for a project pan, but it had a huge hole in it, making it difficult to use. So I thought to do a little beauty DIY and fix the broken powder but boy, read on to see when beauty DIY goes wrong!
It started off well enough – I mean there was still a lot of product left in my powder. First you crush the product.
Then you pour a lil bit of alcohol in it…. or it’s supposed to be a lil bit. Mine was more like 15mls and way too much! The first thing to go wrong.
Then you mix it up and re-press it a little bit.
Wait for it to dry some then press again with a tissue to absorb any excess alcohol. Had to do this a few times since I poured too much alcohol(!)
Then let it dry overnight. Or over-dry and crack because I had used to much alcohol – mistakes, mistakes.
Whatever you do… do NOT drop it after it dries. Just don’t okay. Murphy’s fricking law people!
Sigh, not sure how long I will keep this product. It still works just perfectly, but its no longer purse friendly and a bit messy. Thank goodness I already have a back-up. Sometimes our beauty DIY goes wrong but it’s good to remember that it’s just a beauty product.
