If something LE and/or in special packaging goes bad, there may be some collector who would want them, even if they can't wear them.

 

I throw away the old mascaras and ordinary colored rancid lipsticks. But I have a box of "museumized" makeup, stuff from companies that are no longer around (like Mary Quant and Biba) and some other fun stuff (swirly multi-colored lip glosses in pots from... the 80s?). I've also saved old lipsticks when i wanted to find a dupe, so i could bring them with me to compare.

 

My Grid and Lust were OK early in 2012, but they finally went bad a month or two ago - and they were from the mid 90s - so they lasted around 15 years. Because of their unusual colors i'm going to "museumize" them.

Did Grid and Lust go rancid or get hard? That's crazy they lasted so long tho. What finishes are they?

Maybe it's from their own makeup line? I think they've added lipstick & eye lashes. icon_eek.gif

I get the full blown flu every year, along with an upper respiratory infection and loose my voice for a week. Fun times! It should be kicking in within the next month or two...

    oohhh i see you are more compromised than me. you probably get more mountain dew.

Gorgeous look!!! I love it with your hair and shirt too. 'Best Firm Form look posted in this thread, for my money!! What are you wearing on your eyes and cheeks?

post #3853 of 4811

Hi all, I have an extra PiPi and PaPa if anyone is still looking.  Would like to sell them (for what I paid) together though.

 

Unfortunately, it's near impossible for me to get to the post office to do international shipping though so I can only ship to USA.   PM me if interested.

 

(CLAIMED by Specktra member - that was fast!)

NYX Liners can be bought at beauty supply stores also.

Thank you smiles.gif Random gold and chocolate brown shadow, and Nars Sin on my cheeks. It's my favorite winter blush.

Random shades from my Mom's Elizabeth Arden palette lol. But basically a gold on my lids and chocolate brown in the crease.

How did yours ship already?? Did you ever get a backorder notice or just a ship. j e a l o u s

 

I bought one because you had one in your cart. lol.gif

 

 

No BO notice for me, but I ordered from the Pro site.

post #3858 of 4811

It is worth to buy both two blushes ?
 

post #3859 of 4811

Wow! I'm glad those two lippies lasted so long with you. I really really wish MAC would repromote them since I was too young when they came out. From your descriptions I know I would buy at least two each if not more just to have. Do you still have your Revlon Conga Lime that you spoke about previosuly or did that turn awhile ago? Wish I could have seen what that looks like also. I love your idea of "museumizing" them.

 

PS: I just got my shipping confirmation from MAC. MY Taupe Shape is on it's way. Woo Hoo!!!! My Amethyst pressed pigment is back ordered. Boo!

I think it depends on your natural lip color?  It definitely looks like a reddened plummy brown on my lips.  It has enough blue for me to call it dark purple, but it is really more of a blackened plum.  I really like it BTW.

I'm a bit worried too, especially since I'm pregnant, and everyone at work seems sick.  I did get my flu shot though.  Hopefully, it will protect me this year. (It didn't do any good last year.)
