Has this ever happened, you open up an eyeshadow and it's disintegrated into small pieces?
I always I thought I had two options, pour the loose shadow into a small container or throw it away. Neither of those options were very appealing until I discovered this ... you can re-solidify your shadows.
Using rubbing alcohol fill the metal container 3/4 high (I prefer 99% alcohol, but 90% or 91% should be fine) .
Don't over fill, you can always add more alcohol if it's not full enough.
Gently press the shadow with a Q-tip mixing the shadow and alcohol together.
Make sure the shadow is completely saturated with alcohol even if this means the breaking the chunks of eye shadow into smaller pieces.
The eye shadow should be completely saturated.
Lift the container and tap it against the counter. You should see small bubbles being forced to the surface as the alcohol/eye shadow mixture settles back into the container.
Let the eye shadow container sit open so the alcohol can evaporate.
Voila!!!! Amazing that with a little alcohol an eye shadow can go from this to this!
Hope this little trick can keep you from needlessly throwing away a broken eye shadow.
