Have you ever wondered how to fix broken makeup? This little box does it in under five minutes.

Many a time I've sideswiped a relatively new makeup compact, knocking it to the tile floor and shattering powder into one million pieces. It's one of the worst feelings in the world (if you're dramatic like I am). After letting out a melancholy "Nooooooooo," the only action I take next is placing the compact in a drawer, hoping time will magically heal the wounds and congeal my makeup back together.

To no one's surprise, doing nothing has never worked. I have found something magical, however, that fixes broken makeup, and I feel like Cinderella when her fairy godmother appears and turns a pumpkin into a carriage. 

A few weeks ago, I met with Jill Rossini, founder of FIXY. Instead of a magic wand, Rossini brought her invention, the Fixy Makeup Repair and Creation Kit ($48; fixymakeup.com).

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical when I showed up with my two completely obliterated pieces of makeup (yes, I held onto them for months–nay, years–because, unlike Rose in "Titanic," I never let go).

In under five minutes, my Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder ($23-37; sephora.com) was whole again. Five minutes after that, my Clinique True Bronzer Pressed Powder ($29; sephora.com) joined the translucent setting powder in rebirth.

Here's how Fixy's makeup repair kit works:
