1. Light candle, cut off a portion of the lippy ( I use the skewer) and put into the teaspoon.
2. Hold teaspoon over the flame and you will see the lipstick melt, keep the melting point at a light turn over not vigorously bubbling - you don't want to burn the lipstick.
The skewer is great to move the lumps around though I have found the better quality the lippy the quicker the melting point.
3. When melted pour into a partition of you palette and move the palette around so that the product spreads and sets evenly - setting happens quickly.
4. Turn the palette over and mark the bottom with what the lip colour/ brand is or if you can get the ref sticker off the bottom of the original lipstick canister then pop this on.
** Use the skewer to scoop the lipstick out of inside the tube as there is generally a lot of product in there.
