Some Things You Just Can't Get Rid Of...

I admit, I'm kind of a pack rat. Cosmetics are no exception.

I was going through a box of old things. Most items were thrown away (way too old to keep!), some things were given away, and some things were to be sold at a yard sale. But, one thing I just couldn't get rid of...


Avon Eyeshadow Duo in Luxe Life

Wait....THIS is Avon??? When did this happen?? When did I buy this?? There was no way I was getting rid of this. From the packaging label, it says it's from 1999. I don't even know why I would buy something like this back then, I was barely a freshman in high school in 1999. Surprisingly, the shadows have held up quite nicely:



The gold shade is beautiful and sparkly, and the matte dark purple shade is so smooth and very very pigmented. So, to those who said that Avon shadows were never good? Look at these swatches and try to tell me that....

Tell me readers, is there something in your stash that you don't have the heart to let go of?

OK, this is going to make me feel really old but I must confess I have a Christian Dior quint containing teal, canary yellow, fuchsia, green from the late 80s that I will never throw away! Of course I will never use them, but how could I ever throw something like that away? :)
