Busted Powder Solution 2: Vaseline If you want to repurpose your broken shadow, mix a little shadow with Vaseline for a pigmented gloss. When I tried this, the sheen ended up being somewhere between a lip gloss and a lipstick. I'd recommend this if you want to create a custom color or wear a crazy hue (like blue, green, or black) for the night -- it beats purchasing an entire tube of lipstick you'll only wear a few times. You can also use clear lip balm if you don't have Vaseline, but Vaseline is definitely the cheapest route. You can get a travel-sized container at the drugstore for around two bucks. Oh, and for those who are worried about eating eye shadow: I used a very pigmented eye shadow from MAC so I didn't need to use much product for a concentrated color. I checked the ingredients to make sure they were safe for the lips -- none are any more dangerous than the ingredients used in most lipsticks.
