I find more expensive lipsticks have better quality packaging. But, I love my low priced lipstick brands.
Those cheap lids can crack and break apart so much, they fall right off the lipstick tube.
I have taped the lids on which is annoying and looks trashy. I have used old lipstick lids that I've saved to replace broken lids. The problem with that is, sometimes you can't find an old lid to fit.
I have another solution for you. Make a new lid out of duct tape! People make all kinds of things out of duct tape wallets, mini purses, picture frames, even hammocks. The list goes on and on. Why not a lipstick lid? That's just what I did and it came out fantastic! I used black duct tape but you could use any color or pattern. I bet animal print duct tape would look super cute!
This is a very inexpensive project. All you need is a lipstick tube, duct tape and scissors. You can also use a ruler if you are not good at judging lengths.
Cut 3 pieces of duct tape 3 inches long.
Cut 1 piece of duct tape into a 3/4 inch square.
Wrap the first 3 inch piece of duct tape around the lipstick tube sticky side facing out.
Wrap the second 3 inch piece on top of the first, sticky side down leaving about 1/4 inch of the first piece showing at the bottom.
Make a vertical cut in that 1/4 inch overhang.
Then fold it back.
Wrap the third piece of duct tape around the lipstick tube covering the seam from the folded back piece. Make this piece a little tight.
Make four vertical cuts in sticky end.
Fold down the flaps.
Put the square piece of duct tape over the folded flaps.
That's it. Quick and easy peasy. Now you have a make shift lipstick lid to replace your broken or lost lipstick lid! I find it stays on the lipstick tube really well, even in my makeup bag.
Thanks for Stopping By!
