What was the last beauty product you dropped? Did it survive?

Well, I drop lots of products on purpose for testing πŸ™‚ Last product I mistakenly dropped, however, was my Guerlain Loose Powder, which did survive!

Last night I knocked my like venus dazzleglass down the toilet, unfortunatly not the first makeup item i’ve lost to the thrown and probably won’t be the last :(.

Well, my new 10-pan Inglot palette fell off the table when I was attempting to move something else. The lid slid off, but all ten shadows remained intact and un-gouged.

Biggest fiasco- UD eyeshadow in Sin- old version– it crumbled…tried hard to smesh it back together…but lot alot of powder….that one hit the pan and I rarely hit the pan.

my CoverGirl Queen Bronzer (luckily, I hit a huge pan on it and I wasn’t a fan of it anyways) which I had to throw out and my awesome Sleek Ultra Matte palette which doesn’t hold together and some shadows crumbled but I love it so much!

So funny and relevant that you ask! I just dropped my NYX “Rust” eyeshadow half an hour ago… even though I’ve dropped many things, this is the first thing that ever broke from a drop. I was heartbroken to be honest. =/

My TheBalm ‘Balmbini Volume 2’ only about 2 ft though from the top of my drawers onto my desk. But it was enough to make me think everything would’ve shattered! I’m pretty ‘ritualistic’ with my makeup and its application so I’m careful not to drop anything. Otherwise I’d have a heart attack I know it….

Not dropped, but knocked over whilst applying eyeliner- my deluxe sample of LancΓ΄me Bi-Facil. Unfortunately, it was open and only 1/3rd survived. (I need to work on my beauty reflexes!)

Nicole Avatar

I think it was a lipstick, lipgloss or OPI nail polish. I can’t remember when I lastly dropped a powder product, which broke.
I try to be careful with my powder stuff and the packaging.

LOL that’s funny–I didn’t know you did a drop-test too. I would never do that! πŸ˜› I’d probably be okay with doing it to drugstore products, but I’d never want to drop my Diors or Chanels on purpose–even for the sake of testing–and it wouldn’t be a fair test to just drop one and not the other πŸ˜› I think the last product I dropped was my Edward Bess Quad Royale in Monte Carlo. Thank GOD it was ok–I would have cried πŸ˜›

I honestly don’t remember, my clumsy self is constantly dropping things. The most notable recent fall that I remember, a tragedy in fact, was my MAC Marine Life Highlighter. It smashed to bits! :'( I was able to recover and crush up the powder itself because it had all cracked within the compact… but still… it’s just a powder now… it’s not the pretty sea=horse goodness it once was

Short answer…what DON’T I drop!! I could be a case study for Fumble-finger-itis!!

The non-survivors in the past few months inclued a Mac Blush and an eye pallet that was from a kit from the Shopping Channel. No big loss there. I have a gazillion other neutral eye shadows.

Survivors include mostly eye liners, brushes, and occasionally the mascara wand. At home these will almost always bounce behind the toilet (ew, ew, EWWW!!) The powder products always seem to get dropped at the gym for some reason.

My MAC shimmermint eyeshadow! πŸ™ The dome broke off so I picked it up and used it as pressed eyeshadow. The rest was intact.

My Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer – the trial sized one. I didn’t so much drop it as knock it over while reaching for something else in my makeup cabinet. It fell onto the stone floor and I thought it would be toast but there was just a small chip out of the bottom thick edge of the bottle.

MAC 15 pro eyeshadow palette on hard floor. Lost 2 eyeshadow completely and cracked all of them majorly. My heart broke. My shattered eye shadows have huge chunks taken out of them.

This is the only thing that bugs me about Illamasqua! Every time I hold an item it feels like it could have come off the DS shelves.

my NARS laguna bronzer. i dropped it the other night for the SECOND TIME! the first time only one side of it smashed (weird) and i patched it doing the alcohol trick. this time it landed flat on the ground (lip side down) and the whole thing smashed to bits. still working up the courage to patch it again. i’m just so sad. it’s my most favorite, soft bronzer. very very soft…

I dropped some Mac blushes recently on the bathroom tile and shockingly they all survived. I did accidentally spill some Bare Minerals eye shadow all over my carpet and now there are pink powder stains.

I dropped my Bare Study Paint Pot this morning but it was fine. Last thing I broke was MAC Style Snob eye shadow, a LE starflash warm taupe that was perfect with Satin Taupe. I’m still in mourning, I used that at least once a week. I keep hoping there’ll be another starflash collection and they’ll being it back.

The gold&navy side of my MAC Surf the Ocean pigment stack.. The lid on the gold cracked and pigment spilled all over the floor. It still has a gold glow.. I only have about 1/4 left now :'{

I can’t remember ever dropping anything, except things like lipgloss that are completely unaffected. I did drop a nail polish once, some dark blue color from OPI. I also threw a topcoat across my room over a year ago and that obviously broke. But that was on purpose.
I guess I’m just not clumsy with my makeup or I don’t remember because the things I’ve dropped have been so safe in their packaging that it didn’t occur to me that they could get broken.

I dropped my My Romance perfume.. and it shattered into a million pieces. On a brighter note my room smelled delicious for a few days. i have yet to replace it πŸ™

Yumi Avatar

I dropped my studio fix powder and there’s a big crack down it but otherwise good.

Awhile back I dropped my Smashbox Fushion Soft Lights and it shattered into a million pieces. :<

Mac Dollymix blush, it survived! My drawer fell out and it went flying 2 meters then hit a wall, and still intact! Mac blushes are amazing.

Veronica Avatar

My Bobbi Brown corrector/concealer duo. I wound up completely cracking up crumbling the powder corrector, to the immense chagrin of my pocket book. It was fine for awhile with me very carefully handling the case when I opened it, but then my mother decided to open it up out of curiosity and accidentally dumped all of the corrector on the floor. I can only describe it as a profound tragedy of the utmost degree.

MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow. I was attempting to de-pot it and I didn’t drop it so much as it went flying out of the pan. It broke but it just pushed it all back together.

jody Avatar

My Stila Kitten Eyeshadow! My second one to break too! It did not make it unfortunately, even though it was only like a foot drop. I don’t care though, I’ll deal with the messyness because I love it that much.
