INTO a pot, to be exact.
You see, I am one of those people who tends to leave a lipstick in the car at all times so that I may have one on hand whenever needed. Because sometimes I take my big purse, sometimes I take my small purse, and sometimes I take no purse at all. So, I just like to have one there in case of an emergency.
Uh, yeah, being lipstick-less DOES qualify, thankyouverymuch.
Anyhoo, wouldn’t you think I would remember some silly fact like it is summer and the car gets superhot? As in, melting-my-lipstick hot?
Well, I didn’t remember and now one of my Dior Addicts is all mooshy and I hate mooshy lipstick. I also have a Benefit one that somehow got broken, probably because I forgot to take it out of my pocket and it went into the washing machine. I do that a lot, too.

It seems you can melt your mooshy/broken lipsticks into an empty lip balm container and as long as you don’t mind using a lip brush, you are good to go. In case you don’t read all the way down, it is possible to put the whole thing in a microwave instead of melting above an open flame.
Now, why didn’t I think of that?
