The Petit Elephant Broken Eyeshadow Post Fixes Damanged Makeup

Petit Elephant's 'Broken Eyeshadow' review helps to solve a common cosmetic issue. Dropping pots of eyeshadow or powder on the floor is a monthly occurrence for many women, resulting in the need to repurchase products prematurely.

This instructive blog post introduces an alternative option. Coins, rubbing alcohol, plastic bags and butter knives can be used to put shattered eyeshadows back together. Makeup artist Kandee Johnson introduces the concept by way of six simple steps on her Youtube channel, easy to perform with tools that one would likely have at home.

Johnson and Petit Elephant do away with unnecessary consumerism. The weight placed on repair in place of purchase is considerable, leading to a reinterpretation of standard shopping outlooks.
