Ugh…for me, it was the MUFE Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder. I’ve dropped it a couple times before but this last time was what broke it. Put it an empty powder jar but still…that sucked.

I drop everything. But the last two things I broke were the mirror in a blush from theBalm and an Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow.

Does a false lash count, lol? I was trying to measure the lash, and the second I took my finger off to get a better look, it floated away. I’m just happy this one didn’t fall on the floor, lol.

My limited edition Kat Von D rollerball in Saint Angeles. It rolled off my sink towel and landed on the bathroom tile instead of the plush rug. Shattered. My favorite scent. Gone. Forever…
Don’t laugh, it’s been almost a year and I’m still recovering from it. It also didn’t help at the time I was in my third trimester and my hormones were out of whack. My poor hubby was so helpless and I was a complete wreck!

I’m not sure if I dropped it or what, but I found out my UD Snow eye shadow broke when I went to use it last week. I have to use some alcohol and fix it. About the same day I found out about Snow, I found that the hinge on my Pixi blush broke (the blush is ok), so I have to figure out how to fix that too.

I thought dropping beauty products to test the packaging was part of your job? 😛

There are a couple lip products that I drop constantly, due to how it sits on the top compartment in my train case. Other than that, I can’t really think of anything.

MAC Powder Eyeshadow in Vex. I had no choice but to crush the whole thing and turn it into loose eyeshadow, which I didn’t feel comfortable using, so I went and bought a new one the next day.

The last thing I dropped was my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer! I almost had a heart attack. I thought I had broken it but it was fine!

I dropped my Rimmel foundation from the bathroom shelf to onto the tiled floor and shattered! At the cheap price it was (£5) not a huge issue, had it not been my only foundation at the time!

I always seem to drop my Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Cream Shadows (I own 5 of them), but very fortunate that none of them have broke!

Although if we have to talk about items we dropped and broke, my Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation. :'( It was a very sad day, especially because my brother had bought it for me and it’s fairly expensive.

UGHHH I recently dropped a whole palette of Mac eyeshadows. It was horrific, but only Contrast was badly damaged, and subsequently ground into my poor carpet during my efforts to clean it. :-/

I work at a beauty store and I dropped a Daniel Sandler blotting powder compact. It fell right on its hinge and broke! Luckily it was only a tester. I’ve been so clumsy lately, I drop things all the time…

I dropped Tom Ford Enchanted a few weeks ago! I was like “noooo” and almost started crying as it is very hard to get at the moment. It was for a comparison post and I was taking it back to my storage so it really dropped from like a meter down. I was in denial and bended down to check it out and find out that nothing happened! LOL, this formula with dry/wet usage does dry down over the years and for once I appreciated this fact! :-)))
