Treat It Like A Teabag There's nothing more annoying than pulling out your favorite lip gloss, seeing a ton of product caught around the edges and not being able to reach it with the wand. To get a few extra uses out of your gloss, McKay relies on this trick: Stick it in a mug of warm water for 10 minutes to loosen the gloss. When it's warmed up, the gloss will slide to the bottom of the tube so it's easier to reach with the wand. This also works on squeeze tube glosses. Drop 'em in warm water upside down and the gloss collects at the top of the tube. You maybe be able to eek out as many as three or four more applications.
If there's only enough product for one or two more uses, you'll have to be a bit more crafty. Pop off the rubber stopper at the top of the tube with tweezers or the sharp side of a pair of scissors. This stopper is also the barrier that keeps your gloss from leaking out of the tube, so don't toss it back into your makeup bag or purse. (Oops, too late? We can also help you remove makeup stains and clean up product explosions.)
