I love my Urban Decay XXX glosses, but every single tube of it I have ever owned breaks somehow.    Either the top seam opens, or the application tip cracks and pops off (link to pic of product: http://img.epinions.com/images/opti/9c/af/Urban_Decay_XXX_Shine_Lip_Gloss-resized200.jpg).  I have even emailed them about this.  It's sick really.  Anyway, I want to salvage the gloss, because the container always gives out way before halfway through the actual product.  I know nothing about making cosmetics.  It is a very sticky gloss, extremely gooey, and I hate to put it on with a finger or get it on anything else, so a pot will not work.  What can I put it in, and how do I get it in there?

I dunno if this is practical for you, but I use a few syringes and needles (STERILE) to transfer glosses from one tube to another, or to mix colours or ingredients... you can reuse the syringe and needle indefinetly.

This calls for a very special blend of psychology, and extreme violence.

Where can I easily get the syringes and possibly the empty tubes?

As it is so goopy that I would hate to have to stick my finger in it when there isn't a sink and towel near by, is there a way to thicken it? (list of ingredients here: http://www.urbandecay.com/categories/12.cfm.  Click "ingredients" at bottom of description.)
