I love make-up. All kinds. However, I am reluctant to toss anything, even when it's almost completely used up or ancient.
Why is that? Do all women hold onto a lipstick for 10 years thinking, "I might want to wear that shade again. I like it."?
For the past month or so, I've been trying to chuck at least one way past it's usefulness date make up. Lipstick, foundation, old ratty brushes, lip gloss that is practically dried in the tube.
I feel bad, thinking, "That might be useful to someone." Like who? Who would want ancient half used make up??? No one, I can guess. I certainly wouldn't want any one else's cast off make up.
It would be one thing if they bought a perfume, didn't care for it and offered it to me right away. I might take that. Of course, it's hard to resist such things for a make up pack rat like me.
It seems that I am forever in the quest to find the perfect mascara. I think I've found it in Mabelline Lash Stilleto. (waterproof - black, of course).
Now, I have a veritable treasure trove of mascaras. Most used, some unused. Who knows? I may find myself in a pinch and need an emergency back up mascara someday. I'll hang onto them.
I think I need an intervention! I'm addicted to make up. And liquor bottles, although I don't drink liquor, I love to look at all the shiny bottles when I go in to buy my wine. I think that stems from my childhood - we would accompany mom and dad to the liquor store and the shopowners handed out lollipops to the kids, just like the bank. Going to the liquor store for a lollipop and to look at all those shiny, shiny bottles became a coveted trip!
That reminds me, I need to run out and get some champagne for NYE! Maybe I can talk the Evil Twin into doing it for me.
Our drugstores sell beer, wine, liquor AND make up. Perhaps I shouldn't temp fate. ;-)
