Nope! But one day, I dropped my MAC Honey Lust eyeshadow and I was convinced it would shatter. Instead the eyeshadow popped out of the metal pan (not the plastic packaging, but the pan!!) all in one piece, and I picked it up and gently placed in back. So scary!!

Yes, I’ve broken many lipsticks which is really annoying, but then I made my own pallet out of them (:

Aah, I have broken Grand Entrance from starflash twice, my first one and then my backup. That eyeshadow is cursed or something, I swear!

I’ve messed up a couple of lipsticks by not twisting the lipstick back down before putting the top on. Latest Victim : Ever Hip.

My little girl broke my MAC Big Bow lipstick (Hello kitty colection) at the same way. But I found a new one by Ebay!

I’ve chipped into several eyeshadows transferring from palette to palette… No more acrylic nails!

And I remember when the MAC tinted lip conditioners came in the pots, I left it in my car once and it all melted into one side!

I actually just snapped an eyeliner pencil today. I knocked it out of the container I keep it in and it snapped in half (it was very long). I taped it together for now. I’m forever breakin stuff, that’s just the most recent. 🙂

i’ve dropped pressed powders [shattered all over my floor!], eyeshadow palettes [caught em with my massive talons and left HUGE dents], knocked lipsticks out of their tubes, stepped on eyeliners… it’s a nightmare! i’m getting better though :]

Yes I have, Fashion eye shadow by mac, It didn’t go to waste I put it in a small sample size jar and crushed it up like a pigment.

ive chipped my share of shadows while depotting. But ive also had a few blushed broken by my boyfriends nefews (why they were even in my traincase is still a mystery) and they almost hitting pan so i pressed two to make one and it turned out great!

NYX eyeshadows singles *always* seem to break on me when I depot them. MAC shadows chipped on me during the process, too. Guess I’m just a rookie! =( I’ve also had a pigment incident where my vanilla pigment ended up covering the bathroom floor. Sad, sad times.

I smashed one of my Pop Beauty tins 🙁 a box I had a bunch of makeup in got knocked over and the tin seemed to take the fall the hardest. I can’t even re-press it because it’s one of those 5 strips in 1 tin kinda things!

Oh yeah! I had that happen to me too out of all things i have broken this was the saddest because there is no way it can ever be repaired

I dropped a lipglass once. It landed just so as to crack the plastic ring at the base of the lid — the one that has the screw sides — all the way around and disconnected it from the rest of the lid. Now it won’t screw shut and I have to keep it upright all the time. Of COURSE it would break like that. Couldn’t have just cracked the outside, oh no.

I once dropped my Covermark compact powder once. 🙁 I felt awful for weeks, since it’s not nearly as easy to use as a loose powder.
