Reconstituting Dried Gel Eyeliner

I bought gel eyeliner and when I opened it, it was as hard as a rock. Do you have any ideas how to melt it? I tried putting it in a glass of hot water, but had no luck.

I would take it back where I bought it from, I wouldn't want to put that on my eyes, even if you got it softened.

You can make homemade makeup medium, which is two parts water to one part glycerine. Try pouring a little on to see if it helps. This stuff is used to make lasting eyeliner out of eyeshadows, so hope it helps!

I am with fatboyslimsmom about taking it back! If it's dried out it's 'old' and most likely contains bacteria that could be harmful to your eyes! It's the same as with mascara where it is highly recommended to throw it out once it begins to dry and not even try to re-moisturize it!

I'm with Deeli and Fatboyslimsmum, it's not worth the risk. Take it back.
