Last Friday, I showed you the new Wet N Wild Color Icon Rainbow Highlighter Unicorn Glow that I had been waiting for but that arrived with the powder completely smashed into chunks of all sizes. I was very disappointed.
I called Wet N Wild customer service and sent them a photo of the damaged item. I asked them to replace it, and to take more care in wrapping it for shipping.
My online friend, DiEtta suggested that I try to repair it. A few years ago, I read a post about from Sheila of Painted Ladies repairing broken powder compacts, but thankfully, I hadn’t broken anything so I never got to try it. DiEtta sent along a link to a YouTube video that showed how to do it. Since it looked really easy to repair, I thought I’d give it a try. All you need is a little isopropyl alcohol and a knife or spreader.
Here’s the impromptu video I made of me repairing it. I tried editing the video, but it was beyond me 🙁
From the photos on the website, the Wet N Wild Rainbow Highlighter Unicorn Glow compact had stripes of the different colors in its initial state before it broke to bits, and even repaired it will never look like that again. Nevertheless, I think the repaired version looks pretty darn good!
What do you think? Have you repaired broken powder compacts?
