I love love love my MAC Pro Longwear lip colors, but this morning I think I broke the tube of my favorite one. I wasn't paying attention and I guess I'm stronger than I realize and I accidentally pulled the clear gloss end off.
I can't figure out how to put it back on! I had to stand the gloss on end to keep the clear gloss from dripping out. Is it possible to fix?? Please say so!

The ends come off, so you can replace the gloss with a new refill. You should be able to put it back together by pushing the tube in and then twisting slightly. It should be fixable, unless a piece of it snapped off.
BTW, I went to MAC update today and there are going to be 14 new longwears coming out on August 4th! They're called Lustrelong and are more lightweight than the ProLongwears. They are sheer to medium coverage and are less pigmented (so less drying!). The colors are all really pretty & are going to stay in the permanent collection!

I'm so excited about the new Longwears! The current color selection is really sad, but I really love them anyway. I'm on a no buy this month so I can splurge in August and feel guilt free. Thanks for the tip on fixing it. I'll have to give that a try. I don't think I snapped any pieces off. I sure hope not anyway!

It looks like I did break a piece off. When I try to twist it slightly it feels like a stripped screw. Oh well I guess I just have to wear that one every day and use it all up.

I'm half tempted to try to glue it back together, but I'm worried that might cause more problems!
Which color are you talking about?

Do you know if they are coming out as part of a collection or just on their own?
