I really love your idea; it's so inventive! I'll keep this in mind the next time that one of my lipsticks breaks off at the base - usually, I just try to stick in back on the best that I can.

There is always a ton of lipstick still left inside the tube even if it breaks off where the metal is.... Most people don't realize that

When my lipsticks break off, I just use a candle to heat up the two pieces and then stick them back together and they dry back into one piece. It's really simple.

Yep! I use a pair of tweezers or a toothpick to dig out the remaining color of a worn-down lipstick. I do the same thing with flavored lip balms. I like to get my money's worth, especially if I really love the color.

I do that too! But I use the toothpick end of a floss pick to scoop them out.

I break mine on purpose bwahahaha. Jk, only the ones I don't use that often. Mine are in pillboxes and not as pretty but it makes room for more lipsticks!
