OK so, I’mma put this out there, this may be a bit gross. I don’t really use one of these products anymore, I think I’ve kept it more for sentimental reasons as I bought it a hella long time ago.
I think every girl who loves make up has an item that makes her feel nostalgic about a certain experience or time of her life.
The oldest products I have in my make up bag are the Too Faced Baked Eyeshadow in ‘Deep Space’ and my first ever MAC lipstick in ‘Hug Me’.
When I bought this Too Faced eyeshadow I think I was about 16 or 17 years old (I’m 25 now, LOL) and I went to Sephora on the Champs Elysees in Paris on a school trip. It was my first time in a Sephora and I remember being mesmerised by the shiny walls and floors and wide displays of all types of make up!
This product is still really pretty to look at but I highly doubt I’m going to be dipping my brush (sounds like a euphemism) into this little pot anytime soon. I remember putting this on for a night out and everyone really liking it and I was so pleased as I had no idea what I was doing with it. I can’t bear to throw it away!
The first MAC lipstick I ever bought for myself was the shade ‘Hug Me’. It’s a Lustre lipstick so it’s not matte, it’s a bit glossy but not too much. It’s a great nude for asian skin and I picked it myself. I again, had very little idea of what I was doing but I managed to pick a decent shade.
I hardly ever hear people talking about this shade and it’s definitely not limited edition. I guess there are other nudes out there that people rave about but this is my favourite (aside from No 17’s Beehive).
What are the oldest make up items in your stash? That is if you are brave enough to say!
