Foundation Glass Bottles – my DIY solution

Foundation Glass Bottles - my DIY solution | by

I wear foundation every day of the week. I’ve grown accustomed to it and I like it. With that said, my favorite foundation is getting a lot of use these days. Would not be a problem – it’s not a hugely expensive one – if it didn’t come in a glass pumped bottle.

Yay for the pump, big fat no to the glass bottle.

I used to see a lot of YouTubers talk about all the waste that comes with glass bottles and this may not seem like a big deal, but I hate wasting products. Even if they weren’t expensive. So I came up with this. And with a little help of my handyman at service, my boyfriend, this happened:

OMG! Do you see all that product around the pump and on the sides of the bottle?? He sawed off the top of the bottle – very carefully – and then I took a tiny spoon to get to as much foundation as I could.

Can you believe this? The amount I took off the bottle lasted me for two weeks of daily full faces. It’s amazing how much product I was about to waste…

Well, if you’re wondering, the foundation is the Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation in 020 Rosy Beige, by Catrice Cosmetics*. It’s great and I’m loving it. Will probably make a review on it.

Important note: If you’re trying this, be careful while using a saw. They are dangerous if not used correctly.

See you soon! Have a great week!

    I hate to waste as well. I’ll do anything to get every last drop out of a bottle:) Hey, I paid for it, right?
