A Piece of History

I was rummaging though my makeup and I stumbled into a shadow quad. I have always been reluctant to throw it out. It was one of the first makeup items I ever purchased.



It was summer and I was in middle school. I went to a fair with my friends and I saw a stand selling makeup items. We browsed around and I saw this. Besides those fruity lip glosses with the roller ball I had no other makeup items. I fell in love with this quad. The colors appealed to teenager in me and I had to have it. I loved this quad, even though I have no idea how to apply it. I rubbed my finger into the cream and rubbed it onto my eye. Not the most professional but I had thoroughly enjoyed this product!

In case you can't read it
Maybelline
Color Delight
Cream Shadow
Pinch of Purple

From Left to Right: Blue, Purple, Pink, White

I want to know what is your oldest/most memorable makeup item in your possession? I would love to read about it!

I am going to point out a few people because I am very nosey....hehe

I hope you girls will write about a piece of your history!

  1. I have just one thing in my collection that Ive owned for a long time, its a highlighter cream. I bought it when I was a teenager way before I was properly into makeup thinking it was a foundation. I didnt even know what a highlighter was then and so it never got used, and its nearly all the way full still now. But I thought id keep it as a reminder :)That quad is pretty, do you ever still use it? x

  4. awww isn't it interesting how a piece of makeup can bring you back to a certain time in your life? I recently threw out a Covergirl powder compact that I hadn't used in years, but the smell of it took me right back to highschool!

  5. OMG I have one too! It's this pink lip balm from Bonne Bell. You know it's old when it's Bonne Bell! I think it was a gift from a cousin when I was in elementary school. Its net weight is 0.14 oz and there's still a lot in the tube.

  16. That quad is really cute!

    Besides the Lip Smackers fruity lipglosses & rollerballs, I never had any makeup growing up either! My mom bought me my first Chanel lipgloss when I was 17/18, but I was never interested in makeup then. When I was finally interested (at the age of 21... that was only 3 years ago!), my mother-in-law took me to the MAC counter and bought me my first foundation and blush (Studio Fix Powder & Dainty mineralized blush) and I was addicted ever since! Kind of boring, but that's my story! =)
