Rather than stick just to nails, I’m going to include new beauty products – items I love, try, have a moan about or something which doesn’t do what it says on the box (contributions most welcome). Although I tend to use a brand for ages, sometimes a formula changes, it goes out of production or becomes difficult to find. Examples of some stuff I really mourn are:
- John Freida’s Funky Chunky – a great hair product, costing about £3 for 125ml ($4.50 at 2013 prices) which was withdrawn from the market in the early 2000s and is now going on ebay for upwards of £35 ($50)!!!
- Diorling fragrance – now only sold from the Christian Dior shop in Paris; last bottle, still 1/2 full, bought about 15 years ago – should sell it on ebay. (Update – I did!)
- Lancome Definicils Waterproof Mascara – my favourite, except it’s not on sale in the UK.
