Sorry I didn't update yesterday - It was WV Day - WV has it's birthday on Sunday, so some employees had Monday off, like the Evil Twin.
When we have those long weekends, I sometimes forget it's an actual weekday! My bad.
Anypoodle, I am really in love with a certain lipstick. I'm the type who likes to mix it up on colors every now and then, but if I find a product I like I will buy that product in several shades.
This was the case with Max Factor Lipfinity 3D:
I started noticing a few months ago that, where ever I shopped, I couldn't find ANY Max Factor products. Finally, I found some at the Mart of Wal on an end cap of discontinued sale items. I asked the clerk who was stocking other make up what the deal was and she told me that Max Factor would no longer be sold in the US. Only in Europe.
Apparently, their market share here wasn't worth sticking around. They are owned by Proctor and Gamble, which also has the Cover Girl line, so I scoured that section to see if I could find a similar lip product. I bought something that "looked" similar, but is just awful. It's all gritty and sticky.
I feel like I'm wearing Vaseline with cat litter on my lips. YUCK!
That will NOT do.
So, I've been scouring the interwebs and I actually found several eBay auctions with my beloved lipstick (sealed and unused, of course). I'm wondering if I should just pull the trigger and buy several for the future or if I'll have to become super buddy-buddy with someone across the pond to feed my addiction?
Maybe I just need to find a new favorite. :::Le sigh:::
Why is it that every time I find something, like a beauty product, that I love - then the company somehow senses my desires and takes it off the market???
Maybe it's my breath....
