I haven’t dropped anything in a long while, but my cats like to knock my stuff off the counter regularly (our master bath doesn’t have a door). The last thing Rasputin did was push my new Melt “Blow” lipstick off the edge while making eye contact with me. Luckily it survived.

A little while back I dropped a palette with some Makeup Geek eyeshadows in it. They all survived the fall in tact, except for Poolside, which ended up with a heart-shaped chip in the middle of it. Very weird.

I am a clumsy, clusmy lady, so I drop things all the time. Last thing I dropped was Urban Decay Bust eyeshadow…while I was bringing it to the counter. Fortunately, it didn’t break, haha. (The Cargo Yukon tester I dropped a few minutes prior wasn’t so lucky…in my defense, I don’t know how the pan had separated from the tin!) The last thing I dropped and *broke* was my bottle of MAC Mineralize liquid foundation. It was nearly 3/4 full! I was not happy, to say the least.

illamasqua’s poke! i didn’t even know i dropped it in the garden until I came back home from work. I have no idea how it happened, but thank god everything’s still ok!

I dropped my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum on the bathroom floor twice and it doesn’t even have a scratch… In that split second while it was falling, all I could see was expensive serum all over the floor :))

If you use the crush it all up and add alcohol and press fixing method they go back to awesome. I broke one of the hourglass ambient blushes and it works great after the fix even though I cracked it into smithereens when I dropped it.

Oh, this is so sad. I think the last one was my Bobbi Brown stick concealer. It partially survived. It was open and turned up some, I had just finished using it. Fell into my sink, so I just took the exposed top of it off.
Definitely had some tragic makeup falls, like my very last Too Faced eyeshadow duo in Boy Toy. Broke into fine powder all over the floor, no way to salvage even a bit, and it’s discontinued. Never quiet found a light pink like that one.

The last one i dropped was Chantecaille’s Les Pétales de Rose powder! Although the powder broke into pieces-inside the case- it’s still usuable so i dare to say that it did survive the fall somehow!!!lol The one that didn’t survive was my Guerlain’s Terracotta Blush Sun Shimmer Highlighter in sunny pink..so sad so sad.. It happened two summers ago but it’s still painfull- it was only a month old!! ‘”sob” 🙁

It’s also a Guerlain product for me: Les Voilettes pressed powder. I love the product but dislike the packaging, which I find too light and slippery. I’ve dropped it twice already and a bit of the powder broke loose in small chunks each time. I managed to pick up the bigger ones and put them in a small jar.

Guerlain pressed meteorites but I have my newest one at home and then a mostly used one in my bag so when I finish the one in my bag, the home one gets demoted and I get a new one for home. I dropped my bag one which was well into hitting the pan so it wasn’t as bad as breaking a new one!
