Update: Too Dolly Is All Better

Hi Y'all!! I got so many comments on my last post about how to undo the damage I did to my MAC Hello Kitty Collection Too Dolly Quad... I was studying today and I decided to take a break and try to fix it. I know I have ADD.. There was actually a paragraph about MAC Cosmetics Inc. in my Marketing Management book!
So back to my sad ass Too Dolly dilemma, blogger beauties chimed in from all around the world offering there deepest sympathies and advice and tips..... I wanted to share so no one else makes the same mistake.

Awww Chicky chicky! That sucks!! Scraping is the only way I know of that would fix it. Unless you go to the extremes and crumble & re-press the whole thing! :(Delete

That's the only way I know how to fix it is to scrape it off. I had this happen to me when I wasn't careful, and I had to scratch the top layer off gently with a needle. I used a needle (the side, kind of slanted) because it was what I had on hand. So now when I use an eyeliner transformer on my shadows, I make sure to only use one side of the shadow, that way the other side won't get all crusted.

yea u have to scrape it off.. that happened to my MAC Passionate..
i was scared too cuz i thought i was gonna ruin it but its so much better now

Blogger Jaimie said...

sorry, love. I think its ruined if you its still not working by scrapinng off the top layer. What i usually do is scrape off a bit anyway to a palette or my hand then wet my brush and dip it in that, so only the part you scraped off gets wet, not the whole pan. hope this helps for next time.

Blogger jenn said...

Never add a wet brush back on shadows..

If you are going to use a shadow wet. take up a good amount and add your mixing medium to it(the brush).

another good tip is have more than one brush available if you are going to use a color wet.

Blogger ning * star said...

aww, thank goodness now mushroom grow in your palette.
I hate this too... but I think u should not use a wet brush on the palette... aww, hope someone able to help u fix it

Blogger LipStick Staiin said...

Blogger anne-nonymous said...

hey girly you know whats soo funny is that i went through the exact same situation as you. i also ruined my hk too dolly palette by wetting my brush and dipping it into the romping eyeshadow. When i was at mac in nordstroms the other day, i told the mua what happened with my romping eyeshadow and she told me if you stick a piece of tape on the eyeshadow it removes the hard part. i hope that helps. good luck!

Blogger mszcheysser said...

Eek! Thanks for posting, so no one else makes the same mistake. =/

Blogger Belle Du Jour said...

I have done the same thing, sometimes you cant even fix it. I have had to throw shadows away like that! Ugh

Loving your blog! come stop by my mine and have a look around.
Hope to see you around there soon!

maybe just sweep off a couple of layers with either 1- a microfiber towel or 2-a paper towel (the bumpy side)

So what did I do?????? I figured at this point the color is ruined so it wouldn't matter what I did but just in case I tried the least invasive method first. Tape..huh.. It worked!! I was looking forward to being a surgeon and busting out needles and scraping!

It worked the 1st time but I kept doing it...
Shadow on my finger!!! Before I couldn't get a swipe it was completley solid!!!!Delete

Romping is all better!!!! Thank you!!!! Anne-nonymous!!! Who are you?? I clicked on your blog and your MIA & anonymous!
So ladies what did we learn today??
Do not wet your eyeshadows unless you know it's a color that can be used wet or dry (some palettes I have actually say can be used wet or dry).
If you want to use it wet only wet 1/4 or 1/2 of the color.
Scotch Tape works!
Scraping works!
Posting random questions on your blog works!
