What's the Oldest Product You Own That You Refuse to Throw Away?

I love when a challenge opens up a pandora's box.

We recently asked you guys to face a beauty fear and try something that scares you. One of our community members, @Ladeebee, admitted that their fear was throwing away expired makeup products that they might still have use for. "It is not a particular look that scares me, it is throwing away cosmetics when I think they're expired before I've used them up."

I can relate to this dilemma. I have a MAC creamy highlighter that is so expired that it was discontinued a long time ago. I know for a fact that Eliza has been using the same Milk Makeup Lip & Cheek tint for many...many years. Watching this review by @Ladeebee made me wonder—how many people out there refuse to throw out expired products for no reason other than they're not empty yet?

In this community member's case, their MAC blush is (in their estimation) 15 years old. I am in awe. I respect them, very, very much. I don't know if that's unhealthy and I kind of don't care. If it still performs, why throw it away? I'm sure a dermatologist, an aesthetician or a scientist could easily explain why, but I am but a humble beauty fanatic.

So, I want to know: what is your oldest beauty product? How old is it? Why do you keep it? Can you show it to me? What is wrong with us?

I will give everyone who shows me their oldest beauty product 10 coins. You have until 07/28 to add your review.
