Lol… I wish I had enough makeup to the point where I might misplace something. Haha! But even then, I’m far too OCD to ever misplace makeup. I’d probably know where every piece and item is stashed. 🙂

I have a CO Bigelow Rose Salve that pops up in my life every several months, because every time I go up or down five feet in sea level, the tin becomes impossible to open and I throw it somewhere in a rage! It’s magic for my lips and cuticles and any dry skin spots, but it’s so frustrating to try to get open. I wish they’d just repackage it.
It’s actually about that time where I find it again, now that I think about it.

Not a make up product, but I once lost a credit card inside my wallet only to find it 6 months (and a lot of trouble) later. It was an old long wallet and it had entered one of the seams without me noticing.

My Chanel Rose Initiale blush…I was devastated. Looked everywhere then broke down and ordered a new one. Of course 2 days later I found it in my car. NO idea how it got there but I have two teenage daughters who love Chanel so……hmmm. Anyway, now I have 2 of the same blush but my daughters are NOT comlaining!!!

It happened fairly often before I got into the habit of putting everything back in its place immediately at the end of the day, but it has only happened once in over 10 years. I had a lipstick from The Body Shop that I bought a year-and-a-half ago, and I couldn’t find it later the same day I used it. I searched my purse thoroughly that evening, but I still couldn’t find it, and figured I dropped it somewhere. A couple of months ago, I happened to be searching through a few old bags for anything I may have missed, because I was planning to get rid of them, and that same lipstick turned up. I had actually all but forgotten about it until then, but it had spent over a year in my purse.

Not yet. But I hope so: I can’t find my Mac glamour daze l/s any more, but I love it so much. So hopefully it will appear soon.

I purchased a tube of a perfect evening lipstick (since discontinued) and went crazy when I first misplaced it. two years later, I finally had a home large enough to fit a china cabinet. When I finally opened the first box in storage labeled “china,” there was not a single piece of china in it. Instead, there were stuffed animals, odds & ends and my evening bag makeup stash. I suddenly remembered that every small thing that I had forgotten to pack during a prior move had been put in a box previously used to store some of my Mother’s china. I had reused the box and forgotten to change the label. The top layer was a little dry, but once I scraped that off, it worked good as new.

This always happens to me with lip balms and lipsticks, I usually find them in a handbag at the back of the closet! Once I lost an entire makeup bag filled with all my Mac Archie’s Girls collection products at my friend’s house, and I was devastated. It turned up a few months later under her couch cushions.

Unless you count the fact that the majority of my possession is locked in a self storage unit in a different continent, nope. I know where everything is.

All the time! I have tons of makeup (especially lip products) that get lost within my stash and only when I’m cleaning up would I find those hidden items. It always feels like Christmas whenever I found something that I had as then I would get obsessed with it all over again!

Two bottles of scent – Clarins Eau Dynamisante and Jessica McClintock. Turned out, hubby had packed them away in a box – I’ve no idea why – with a bunch of other random stuff and I found them a year or 2 later in the basement, while searching for something else. I think it might have been when we were having some painting done but it was just those 2 bottles, which was so strange. Of course, he had no recollection of having done this!

Guerlain Grenade lipstick. Its my fave ‘going out’ lippie and it was missing for about 3 months so I thought I’d lost it on as night out and I bought a new one only to find my original about 3 weeks later in the pocket of a blazer that I don’t remember wearing for about a year :/ I was glad I found it but as bit annoyed coz Guerlain lippies aren’t exactly cheap and I’d bought a new one.

I lost my Tweezerman tweezer, purchased another one and found the original a week later. I gave the new one to my sister. I lost it again, purchased a new one and found the original a month later.

I lost an eyeliner — one of the mini Benefit BADgal liners they were selling last year. I actually saw where it fell, it just fell into the space behind my bed where there’s piles of various assorted things I don’t have a place for. I decided not to look for it, and then my mom was getting something back there and found it.

I well and truly thought my Too Faced Juicy Melons lipstick was lost, to the point that I went and bought a new one. A couple of months later, my husband cleaned the car thoroughly and found it under one of the seats, so now I have two. The top surface had gotten a bit hard and dried out but after wiping that away the rest of the lipstick was totally fine!

Not really a product but a brush. I thought I lost my MAC 217 brush and I was so sad, but I couldn’t live without it so I just bought another one. Then when I was moving I found it! Oh well, you can never have enough 217’s 🙂

I started carrying a smaller handbag and had to downsize the makeup I carried. When I went back to a big bag I put my makeup bag back in and found my Maybelline Dream Lumi concealer that I was mourning the loss of and could not find in stock anywhere.

Yes, all the time! Most recently it was my Chantecaille lip gloss that I found in a pair of rain boots (so random!) in my closet! I was quite happy that it rained last week so that I found it!
