I have a ton of barely-used, abandoned lipsticks that I hang on to for way too long, thinking maybe I’ll come back around to liking some slightly wrong hue I’d previously forsaken. This almost never happens, but it did the other day, when I pulled this Bite Beauty lip color—the shade is called Mulberry—from the reject pile. It’s a rich color that goes on pinker than it looks like it would, and is kind of ideal for summer, as the matte formulation stays put on lips for—literal—hours. Only problem is that Bite Beauty has recently gone out of business—you can clean up on favorite products at Sephora, where they’re all marked way down—and the Mulberry shade is sold out both there and on the company’s website (where there are also big markdowns). I finally found one tube, on Ebay, but with shipping from Canada it’s $60, and I can’t quite abide that. But all of this has made me curious: what’s your favorite beauty product that disappeared, and to what lengths did you go to accrue more of it?
