Fix Sticky Lip Gloss With This Easy Trick

The Easy Trick For De-Tacking Sticky Lip Gloss



We're excited to continue our partnership with YouTube star and beauty guru Michelle Phan! Every other week, we'll be bringing you the best from her website, MichellePhan.com. This week, Michelle has a great trick for making sticky lip gloss less tacky:

Hi everyone,

There are a few things that we ladies can all pretty much agree upon (such as the power of chocolate, a shared love for shoes, and the need for hair conditioner, to name a few). Add to the list: How insanely annoying it is when your favorite lip gloss is sticky. (This particular annoyance is actually probably universal, since I'm guessing the gentlemen out there aren't fans of it either!) Sticky lip gloss can mess up your hair, smear onto your face, and repel a cute boy . . . and it only gets worse with the weather. But it looks so good!

In hot water: a must-read for people who love warm, steamy showers

So here's my de-stick trick for you: Next time your lips are too sticky, run an ice cube on top of your gloss to smooth it out. This should help dilute some of the goop. Problem solved! I hope this helps! Do you have any other tricks for this makeup dilemma? Share in the comments below!
