How to fix broken eyeshadow
Your favorite eyeshadow just slipped out of your hands. It seems that there's no remedy but to buy a new one. Don't do it yet, first try to put the little broken pieces back into the packaging. Then add a little bit of alcohol to make it more solid. Get a coin and press the eyeshadow into its place. Don't push it too hard, then let it dry for a few hours.

however you still saved it for further usage.
This trick works with pressed eye shadows, since alcohol has a great solidifying effect.

If it doesn't work, try the hard way, use a cloth for a better grabbing, then try to open the bottle with force.
What to do with broken lipstick
Lipsticks tend to become very soft if they are not kept properly. The wrong temperature and its inappropriate position can damage the quality of the product and it's more prone to melting and breaking.
However it is easier to prevent the problem than solve it. That's why if you see that your lipstick is about to melt, place it into the refrigerator and keep it there for a longer period.

into the package and use a lip brush, to apply it. You'll see it
will last longer if you use this trick.
Another trick would be to melt the surface of the complete part with a match. Then place the broken piece on the top of it, the two part will melt together. Finally store it in the refrigerator until it gets back its initial shape.
