The Lipstick Page Forums Beauty & Fashion Blog

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, May 26, 2007 9:05 PM (Eastern)

This is an old applet I wrote...have no idea when. I don't remember if it was written on the Windows 95 computer or the Windows 98 one. I'm fortunate to have copies of the original text files (once they're semi-compiled, you would basically have to rewrite the entire code if you needed to change anything).

Never did get around to implementing Advanced Kitty, sorry about that.

I've come to realize that much of the makeup I currently own, is, in a word, old. Not yucky-old, like a rancid lippy, which I would toss without compunction. But, simply, old.

This is a new phenomenon for me. In my pre-Internet-beauty-forum days, I never owned enough makeup for it to age. Sometimes my blush (note the singular form) would get a tad hard toward the end; it was an inexpensive drugstore blush, so I replaced it. Sometimes my lipstick (again: one) would start to look a tad ratty before it was finished. Since it was a Bonne Bell Frosty Gloss or a Cover Girl LipSlick, it was simply a matter of buying a new one.

My stash is quite a bit larger now, and largely higher end, meaning the stuff tends to last a lot longer in both senses of the term. The use-it-up factor, and the toss-the-ratty-item factor, are for all practical purposes now gone.

Plus, they're good items, meaning the "product that never gets used because it doesn't work" factor is not so much there either.

What to do? As I'm resurrecting the entire TheBroadroom.Net site--which hosts The Lipstick Page Forums site, among other things--I have weeded out a few items, like my method of replacing lost preferences in Netscape, that aren't going to work for 2007.

I put a little bit of Flash on the new pages...and I think it's good to add a new makeup item to your stash once in a while; something different, not a retread of a shade you already own.

Hence my notion of "replacing" MAC Strawberry Blonde with Nars Sexual Healing (or some other, equally irrelevant Nars lipstick)...and Prestige Expresso with Urban Decay 24/7 Bourbon. Those are my next two planned purchases btw.

Ultimately though, I am going to keep most of the site content as is. As long as it still works, who cares if it's old?
