Remember how I showed you my lipstick collection a few weeks ago? Well, the original count was actually more than 12 -- somewhere around 24, I think. But, it was clear that some of them had to go.
Squint at the picture. Can you see what I saw?

Can you see it now?
That's mold, ladies. Mold growing on a rarely used Maybelline lipstick. My hair stood on end when I saw that and I immediately went through the rest of my makeup collection to see if anything else had started sprouting mushrooms. Except for a Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge (it had a greenish tinge, believe it or not), everything was fine although some of my lippies did smell a bit weird.
Into the trash they went.
Does anyone know where I can get those oxygen absorber packets? Think I have to start throwing them into my makeup drawers.
