Repairing Damaged Eyeshadow

Shattered Eyeshadow

I was crushed when I accidentally dropped my Jesse's Girl MOONBEAM baked eyeshadow.
They are FRAGILE!
For the longest time, I was reluctant to repair it because I did not want to lose the cool marble effect.
The cracked shadow was messy.

I used my Coastal Scents EZ Press. I like it, but I hate the bottle top.
It's a click button dispenser like a shampoo bottle.
I would have preferred an eyedropper for more accurate formulation when pressing pigments etc.

Undamaged and New Eyeshadows

I used

Alcohol (to sterilize the stainless Steel Spatula and 5gram jar)
Coastal Scents EZ Press
A Sheet of Plastic
An Empty Vitamin Bottle Mouth To Attempt To Form A Dome Shape

Scraped Shattered Eyeshadow from Pan with Stainless Steel Spatula

Used Stainless Steel Spatula To Further Crush the Shattered Eyeshadow ...Goodbye Pretty Marble *sad face*

Added Enough EZ Press Until the Loose Shadow Gathered Into a Paste On the Side Of the Container

Stainless Steel Spatula Used to Form the Dome Shape

Clean Plastic and Vitamin Bottle Top Used to Shape The Shadow Further

Results After 24 Hours Of Drying Time


  1. this was interesting and helpful,thanx for sharing darling

  2. @ Sharon...I'm glad you found it beneficial. Thanks for commenting. :O)

  3. You could switch out the bottle for CS EZ Press. I bought my pressing medium from Beauty From The Earth. Their Hard Pressed comes in a dropper bottle that's a little easier to control. This color is gorgeous by the way.

  4. @ Danielle, thanks so much for sharing. :O)

  5. I gave all my jessie girls away/ that one you had to fix is pretty!

  6. @ Beauty in a Bottle...Thanks for commenting
