Why Can’t I Give You Up? 

We all have those products that we don’t use but we can’t bring ourselves to throw away. Sometimes, we keep products out of guilt because they were expensive. Sometimes, we keep products out of nostalgia because they remind us of a special time in our lives.

The one product I never ever wear but I can’t throw away is this extremely sparkly lipgloss from Sephora:

The picture doesn’t even do this one justice. This is chunky lip glitter in the brightest pink imaginable. It looks like it might belong on a porn star, yet this librarian can’t seem to toss it. But why? I can’t remember ever wearing it in public – except for maybe at the mall the day I bought it. It’s not anything spectacular as a gloss and I bought it super cheap on clearance.

Should I just throw it away? What is the shelf life on a lipgloss anyway?

I think that perhaps the reason I can’t get rid of it is that I want to be able to pull it off. I want to make a trashy product classy. But I just don’t think I can – I don’t have the right confidence and charisma to pull it off. But I keep it just in case someday I do.

Do you have a product you can’t part with? Tell me about it in the comments section.
