Emulsions may separate, ingredients may degrade, mold may take root, and oxygen can get into cosmetics containers, causing oxidation.

I struggled with anorexia for years — but people actually encouraged my weight loss because of my bigger size

  I struggled with anorexia for years — but people actually encouraged my weight loss because of my bigger size When I was a teen, I dealt with anorexia, but many people in my life actually encouraged my weight loss because of my bigger size.None of my peers commented on my body, but the fact that I sat alone most days at lunch was a signal to me that I was different — and not in a good way. And as each day passed, the desire to fit in grew stronger.

Also, Mardell G. wrote me this enthusiastic recommendation: “I was surprised to see that you still use an eyeliner pencil. I gave up on pencils years ago. I use Clinique water-resistant eyeliner, which comes in a paint-like cake form with a brush. Stays on until you take it off. It lasts forever!! Well worth the price. Check it out.

But this happens all the time. Your favorites are discontinued. I advise readers to buy multiples if they love a product before it disappears forever! might have what you’re looking for — often at an incredibly inflated price. Also you can try sites that stock discontinued products, but I have had zero success with any of them:, and’s “dupe list” suggests duplicates for a limited number of discontinued products. Also try customer service at the company that makes what you’re looking for which might have a small supply of discontinued favorites, but don’t count on it.
