- The heating method - This is when you apply direct heat onto the product using any of the ff: blower, hair iron, microwave. This made my MAC fluidline worst! :( But it slightly worked for my Maybelline one but was only okay for a good 4 or 5 days.
- Using eyedrops - You put a couple of drops of Eye-mo or Visine - the classic one. It's meant to bring moisture back to product. This method didn't work too!
- Using a silicone based primer - This one worked the best but didn't last long - a week I think. And I find that it diffuses the pigmentation of the product. Sigh.
BIS-VINYL DIMETHICONE/DIMETHICONE COPOLYMER - The novel copolymer provides the formulation chemist with an alternative to crosslinked silicones for developing aesthetically pleasing cosmetics while minimizing patent concerns
CAPRYL GLYCOL - Skin-conditioning agent that may be plant-derived or synthetic. Often used as part of a preservative blend with phenoxyethanol and chloroxylenol, two preservatives that meet current global regulations.
PHENOXYETHANOL - In the cosmetics industry, Phenoxyethanol is used as a stabiliser in perfumes and as a preservative.It’s an oily, colourless liquid that belongs to the family of the glycol ether.
HEXYLENE GLYCOL - small molecular weight surfactant.
In all honesty, I don't know what good that brought (nosebleed!). Remind me not to be geek-y again because clearly I am not! Kidding aside, it helps in adding moisture back to the product, also the silicone hence improving the consistency of your dried up gel liners.
If you are wondering how I revived those gel liners, read on..
What you'll need:
- A dried up Gel Liner, pain pot, cream liner, etc
- Spatula or anything that you can use to mix the product
- Of course, Inglot Duraline
I am absolutely in love with this product and if I ever ran out of it, I am sure to repurchase.
