Bringing Dried Out Products Back To Life?!

Who hates wasting products?!  We know we do, especially when you spend your hard earned money on expensive products!


But, don’t worry, we have a solution for you!  This technique will work if you have dried out gel eye liners, eyebrow products, or cream/gel eyeshadows.  


We will be trying this out with a dried out Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe.  I love this product!  It was the first eyebrow pomade I purchased and I immediately fell in love.  However, if you don’t want to spend the $18, that’s understandable; we have some amazing dupes coming for you soon (some we like better than the Dipbrow itself)!


Step 1:  Assemble the tools and products you need.

  • Your favorite Eyebrow brush.  We love the Morphe E11 Angled Brow Brush ($4.99).
  • Some kind of scraper tool.  I used a blackhead remover I found laying around but anything works!  You could even use a fork (it may be messier but it would work).
  • Tarte Maracuja Oil ($15.00).  This is my favorite oil to use for this.  I also love to use this oil on my face at night if I am feeling dry so it has many purposes!  
  • Dried product you are trying to bring back to life!


Step 2:  Add one drop of the Tarte Maracuja Oil.  As you can see in the picture, I started with one drop because I did not want it to be too runny.  I wanted the product to still have the waxy brow product consistency.  You can always add another drop of oil depending on how dry your product is, but take my advice and begin with one!

Step 3:  Take your scraper tool and begin to mix the product together.  After mixing it, try to press the product back together the best you can.

Step 4:  Tada!  Good as new!  No money wasted!  As you can see in the picture, the before swipe is barely there.  After mixing in the oil, the product is good as new and extremely pigmented once again !  


TIP:  Keep this product in the box it came in because it keeps it from drying out as quickly!
