How to fix broken makeup Hip2Save

Isn’t it such a bummer when your favorite blush, eye shadow, or pressed powdered makeup falls and shatters? Well, don’t you dare throw it away as you can quickly and easily fix it with something you likely have in your medicine cabinet —-> rubbing alcohol! Easy Peasy! I saw this tip recently in a magazine and had to try it.

What to use to fix broken makeup Hip2Save

How to Fix Shattered Makeup:

1. Slowly add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the broken makeup. You’ll know when you have added enough drops when a paste-like substance forms.

2. Use a butter knife or flat object and stir the makeup paste around, flatten it down and smooth it out.

3. Let it dry overnight. When it dries, it will no longer smell like alcohol. Although it does not necessarily look as pretty as before, it still works!!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
