How to get every last drop out of your makeup bottles



As I type, I'm staring down a tube of Revlon matte lipstick in "Wine Not" that is absolutely used down to the nub. Still, I refuse to throw it in the trash until I've scraped it bare. I'll never quit you, lipstick!


Moments of such connection with my lipstick inspired me to write this story for Here's the Deal, the money saving feature that runs in the St. Petersburg Times every Monday. It's on the front of your B section today, and the cover of tbt*.

I'll tell you how to swipe out the very last smooch of the lipstick using a brush, how to mutilate your makeup bottles until they're empty, how to salvage a broken powder compact. And I know you guys have other MacGyver tricks we've yet to even think of, so please do share.

You can follow Here's the Deal on Facebook for more cheapster insight. And of course, you can do the same for your favorite Deal Divas.

Onward to the tips!
