    Hi Megan

    Wow, this is AMAZING! Just a question though – what is ‘rubbing alcohol?’

  2. The Authentic Girl says:

    Hi Celeste

    Rubbing alcohol is a disinfectant for cuts or it can be used to sterilize things in your bathroom (like tweezers).

    Love this. This has happened to me before but then I just put teh loose powder into a jar with a lid. But this trick looks legit and totally worthy to try.

    Thanks Megan.

    Thanks for this! Broke some Stila eye shadows….but threw them out 🙁 Maybe I should have tried to save them…..major regret now 🙁

    I’m so glad you found it useful Simone, I’m so happy I found this video too. I broke so many powders and eye shadows in the past and had to throw them away. At least now we have an affordable solution 🙂
