We'd be lying if we claimed we didn't completely tear up every time we start reaching the plastic ring at the base of our favorite lipsticks. It isn't much longer until we'll have to toss it and pick up another if the color isn't part of some limited-edition range that can no longer be found. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

Enter Tiktok coming through with the best hack to with the ultimate lifehack to stretch the lifespan of your lipstick. Check it out in action below.

The Tiktoker begins by digging her lipstick out of the base, then sticks the color into a palette. We didn't realize that much product was hiding in the bottom of the tube. Usually, once our lips make contact with the plastic, we figure the lipstick only has mere hours left before it gets tossed.

If you've been duped into thinking that once your lips can't get product from the tube, it's okay, this hack is the best thing that's happened for those of us who can't let go of that limited edition lipstick color. You have to love that Tiktok is basically the new Google for hacks.
