Depotting NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks

Hola Lovveerrss!!! If any of you guys have any NYX jumbo eyeshadow sticks i advise you DEPOT them!! WHOOAA WHOOAA! It is MMUUCCCHHHH easier than using the pencil...think about it...NO SHARPENING....No STICK HASSEL....AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR VERY OWN PAINT POT! wanna lean how to do it? follow my easy directions below!!



YOU WILL NEED....
  • EMPTY 5 GRAM CONTAINERS

  • BLOW DRYER

  • HANGER

  • NYX JUMBO EYESHADOW STICK

FIRST GRAB YOUR 5 GRAM CONTAINER..

THEN YOUR NYX JUMBO EYESHADOW STICK....

THEN YOUR BLOW DRYER....

THEN ATTACH IT TO A HANGER OR ANY TYPE OF LONG STICK THINGY LOL....

TAKE THE BLOW DRYER AND PLACE IT DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE EYESHADOW STICK...APPLY THE BLOW DRYER TO THE HIGHEST HEAT...BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE JUMBO EYESHADOW STICK....HOLD THE DRYER TO THE STICK UNTIL THE CONTENTS IN THE STICK BEGIN TO MELT...MAKE SURE TO POSTION THE STICK RIGHT UNDERNEATH THE CONTAINER SO WHEN IT DOES MELT IT WILL FALL RIGHT INTO THE CONTAINER...IT TAKES ABOUT 5-7 MINS FOR THE EYESHADOW TO ACTUALLY MELT OUT FROM THE STICK...BUT WHEN IT DOES IT COMES VERY VERY FAST SO BE CAREFUL...BECAUSE IT CAN BE VERY MESSY....


THE AFTERMATH....YOU KNOW THAT THE STICK IS EMPTY BY BLOWING IN TO IT AND HEARING THE HOLLOW NOISE...KINDA LIKE BLOWING INTO AN EMPTY SODA CAN OR BOTTLE...

MY MESS...BUT IM HAPPY MOST OF IT GOT INTO THE CONTAINER...

AND THATS IT!!! I NOW HAVE MY VERY OWN PAINT POT!!! YAYYY I PLAN TO DO THIS TO ALL OF MY JUMBO EYESHADOWS...IT JUST MAKES IT EASIER! IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING JUST LET ME KNOW!! :)

XOXO, COURTNEY

Hey girl...I was thinking about how to minimize mess & maximize the amt of product in the 5g jar...

What if you put wax paper all around the 5g jar. That way, if any of the melted product splashes or ends up on the table, you can scoop it up with a knife or something & add it to the pot. Also, you wouldn't mess up your table :D
