Our “Better Together” series highlights surprising ways two products become — you guessed it — even better when you use them together.

We’re here to put it plainly: Nothing is worse than a dried-out lipstick. It’s not only horrible to have to cake your old favorite shades onto your lips — it’s also not healthy for the longevity of the remaining lipstick. The more you try to swipe on a totally dry lipstick, the more likely it is to break — or dry out even more. Cue: Urban Decay Lip Love to mend all of your dehydrated lipstick troubles.

Squeeze a little of the UD lip loving formula on the back of your hand, and swipe the dried lipstick into the mixture. Mix it well with a lip brush, and there you have it: a totally revitalized version of your favorite shade. Apply your newly hydrated lipstick to your lips, and continue to touch up your lip color throughout the day with a little help from the balm.
