Flat, Long Nozzle 5/10ml empty lip gloss style tubes
« on: May 03, 2011, 05:22:00 PM »

Had an idea for storing my e juice in those lip gloss style tubes (like mini plastic toothpaste tubes with long nozzles) so they dont take up as much room in my pocket as the dropper bottles. This would also be good for the flat style carry cases. But try as I might, I cant find a supplier of the empty tubes. Going to resort to cleaning out one of my mum's empty gloss tubes but as you can imagine, this isnt ideal. Any help or suggestions?
Much 'preciated

thats what im worrying about. . . got it soaking in hot water after about ten mins flushing but the whole exercise seems pointless. I know using the tubes is a good idea but I just need clean ones. frustrating

ebay?
OK, with much trawling found this if anyone is interested:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/10-Clear-LIP-GLOSS-Empty-Container-sample-balm-0-5oz-/160533601174?pt=US_Makeup_Lips&hash=item25608c5b96#ht_2120wt_802

They do them in 10ml too but you have to get 20.
Has a 9.7mm opening which is the same as the standard e liquid dropper bottles, so one of the dropper tips should fit in there perfectly and still fit under the cap.

Ill look like an idiot if this doesn't work lol, when they arrive I'll let you know how I get on

OK, managed to get the Empty 'Lip gloss' tubes nearly 2 weeks ago (forgot about this thread lol) and its a mixed bag. They are 10ml so too big, the 5ml wound have been better. They do work! But, and its a big but, the dropper tops from standard bottles are exactly the same diameter as the opening of the tube so the tops dont click over the opening and hence dont fit :( that said, the lip gloss tips do still work for dripping but are not ideal.
So in conclusion, only 50% feasible.
- fit nice in the pocket, they do drip OKish (bit messy)
- too big, not ideal for dripping
My quest for a pocket friendly, larger than 3ml storage tube continues!
