I hate when I spend a bunch of money on a great eyeshadow or shimmer powder and I drop it and it all cracks apart. How frustrating! I was reading the February issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray and found this amazing tip on fixing those compacts. Just use an eye dropper filled with rubbing alcohol and drizzle it over the broken parts and use the back of a spoon to smooth it and leave it overnight. LOVE this tip!
