I have been buying some 2nd-hand makeup lately from sg_beauty etc. Everytime I receive my items, I would steralize all of them before trying them on. Even if its brand new in box, I will still clean them from head to toe…lol.
Recently, I picked up 2 used nyx lipsticks in Perfect and Thalia.
Left: Perfect; Right: Thalia
Here is how I sterialize them:
Step 1: Prepare your bowl and rubbing alcohol (available at any pharmacies)
Step 2: Pour some alcohol into the bowl
Step 3: Tilt the bowl and dip the lipstick into the alcohol, rotating it so that the whole lipstick is soaked in the alcohol
Step 4: Whilst letting the lipstick dry, clean the cap with alcohol.
Step 5: Clean the exterior of the lipstick too.
Step 6: Finally, wipe the lipstcik with a tissue paper to ensure that its completely dry.
And now, I can use my sterlized lipsticks! This is just my method of cleaning 2nd hand makeup items for hygenie purposes. For blushes and eyeshadows, I would usually spray the product with alcohol too. I used this method as well to clean all my stash every now and then. I hope this is useful for some of you!
Today, I will be checking out the inuovi f&f sale! Anybody going?
