The Throwback Thread!!!

I've been thinking about the "good old days" a lot lately and having a lot of flashbacks of things I used to love or find funny. So I thought I'd start a thread to share our favs from the past whenever the moment hits. Anything and everything welcomed!

I guess it's called a graphic novel now? it looks like an extra-long comic book to me!  this is just not the same at all!

Re: The Throwback Thread!!!

Definitely interesting that they are still trying to keep the idea alive.

Re: The Throwback Thread!!!

I saw this at a bookstore, too! Definitely not the same, but my life aspiration is still to become Claudia Kishi.

I'm still sad about Pout Cosmetics. I discovered them in 2006 at Holt Renfrew and by 2007 they were gone. Amazing brushes, and their packaging was adorable!

A long time ago, the Nordstrom near me got a new line of makeup that intrigued me.  They claimed to be the best for complexion and didn't airbrush their models for ad campaigns. Anyway, these photos look so messy, but it was because, and they had the Most egorgeous shimmer pressed and loose powders and cream makeup. It was Becca, and I was a sad when they left, and then so happy when they popped back up at Sephora. 

 

Anyway, here's a cream blush eyeshadow and concealer on the left, loose powders Hyawatha and Aphrodite, pressed powder in Mermaid, and a loose setting powder on the far right.

 

I'm pretty sure I had more, like the mermaid in loose powder, but found these tonight. Swatch with flash shows from L-R: mermaid, Aphrodite, hyawatha is the warm one.  These were before highlighters, so these were intended as an overall setting powder, I kind of packed them on for swatch purposes.  Will have to use these again one day. Did anyone Else use becca before they came to Sephora?

I did @sister13! I loved their sheer illuminating foundation, and they had the best line of pigmented lip glosses. I used to buy their products from a local specialty boutique long before Sephora even came to my city.
