Well you're in luck, because here they come.
That is a brilliant idea and how cool that you found those Sterling cases from the 20s! Lipstick is easy to transfer from one case to another by freezing and simply rocking it out of one case and putting it into the vintage case. That 60s makeup must have had some fabulous packaging. Too bad about the waxy taste on the lipstick. I love old make-up adverts! How ingenious to be able to refill your lippie.
I did amass a big collection of s make-up, the colours were fantastic but I hated the waxy taste of the lipstick so passed it all on to a regular customer who loved it. Every little bit of recycling helps! Those are some fancy lipsticks cases.
Futurama ads that ran in Life Magazine. What do you think of the refillable lipstick idea? Would you use them? Lover of mid century fashion and home decor, classic films, Old Hollywood, pretty dresses, red lipstick, swing dancing and retro culture in general. Between my ecommere site and vintage style blog my mission is to revive the eras of classy dressing and inspire women to add more glamour to their lives!
So don't be shy! I love to hear from others who share my appreciation of the styles of the past. Theresa Campbell March 27, at 5: I'd love to try it, still have to go looking for vintage tubes though: I really enjoy your blog! Have a great day Just hope hubby doesn't think there is a new type of snack in the freezer.
I just bought a vintage 's stratton combined lipstick compact gold set, and I was desperate to figure out how to put in my lipstick. So pretty; made to take out at the dinner table to freshen one's lips after a meal. I'm going to try this out on my vintage 80's Body Collection Lipstick case, can't wait to try it! Thanks for the tip!
Dear Brittany, Our blog makes me smile! Thank you for figuring out this new lipstick in vintage tube trick. I just acquired some of the Revlon vintage colors Cherries in the Snow! So after I read your tutorial I started hunting for vintage tubes, and oh They are beautiful but quite pricey and I am not sure if we can transfer new lipstick in them following your method. Thanks for your help! I hate carrying around ugly cheap-looking modern packaging when I'm all vintaged-up. I have two vintage Revlon tubes I was hoping to use and this tutorial is perfect.
I just put my test subjects in the freezer and am soaking the first tube. Can't wait to see how it works! Every horse thinks its own pack heaviest. Thanks for your wonderful tips,now I know how to put my favorite but cheap! I thought I was the only person who does this! I'm glad others do this! I also buy used Chanel and Dior etc and replace them with my fav cheap lipsticks as well as mid century Revlon and s engraved sterling cases.
I also have a few old Stratton loose powder compacts. I buy a drugstore brand powder compact, crunch out the powder from the pan while in a freezer bag. Or just buy a box of loose powder from Amazon. My great grandmother taught me all kinds of hints to be comfortable on little money. She lived through the Great Depression. How on earth do I refill a vintage lipstick tube that's very tiny and shaped oddly. I have the La Mode compact with 2 narrow square shaped lipstick tubes on either end of the tiny compact; and pressed power and rouge compartments in the center.
I've just come across my Guerlain Meteorites case and can't get refills. I will definitely try this. I read every single comment even on old posts and they make my day!
