Yeah, totally. A few times, but the one that stung the most happened back when I was in college.
I think it was sophomore year, because I was working part time as an assistant at the language lab for foreign exchange students. My beauty budget was almost nonexistent, so I got most of my meager makeup purchases at drugstores. I’d buy one tube of MAC Paramount at the start of the school year, and that would be my one big beauty indulgence.
Shelley, my roommate at the time, swore up and down that Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick was EVERYTHING! — and I agreed. After hearing her gush about it for months, I scraped enough change together to buy a tube of my own.
Oh, I loved that tube… I wore it every day for two weeks straight (my tube of MAC Paramount started feeling neglected), but then, disaster!
I lost it. At the library, I think.
I’m pretty sure I set it on the counter in the restroom while touching up, and then forgot to put it back in my purse…
I didn’t realize it was gone until later that night when I looked through my book bag.
Have you ever lost a beauty product that meant a lot to you?
