Makeup Tip of the Day: Paint Pot Trouble

Can't get your MAC paint pot to open? Submerge your paint pot sideways in hot water on a container or hold it under a running hot water (be careful!) for about 15 seconds. Make sure you wipe your paint pot first before opening. This trick should help loosen the cap.
