If your lipstick has broken off but it's still in good shape overall, or if your lipstick has melted in your car and is not in good shape, it is worth trying to repair it rather than throwing it away. There is a system available to repair a broken or melted lipstick using a lipstick mold that allows you to re-create a professionally shaped lipstick and put it back into your own twist-up tube. Start with Step 1 to save your favorite lip color!

Step 4 Remove the broken piece. If it hasn't already fallen off, remove it with the gloved hand. Stand the base of the lipstick upright on the workspace Step 4.jpg
Step 5 Stand the base of the lipstick upright on the workspace. Swivel it up as far as possible. Take a match or a lighter Step 5.jpg
Step 6 Take a match or a lighter. Carefully run the lit match or lighter underneath the base of the broken part of the lipstick. Slightly melt the area that the broken piece will be attached to as well. Take care not to burn the lipstick or melt the case.
