my mother's lipsticks


My mother died on Aug. 2nd, 2006. My brother and I spent three weeks together in her condo, cleaning out cupboards, sifting through papers, phoning companies. When we thought we had boxed, bagged, sold, given away, or trashed just about everything, I opened a tiny drawer in the bathroom, to find these. I don't think I have gone through one entire lipstick in my whole life (except maybe one of those Bonnebelle lip gloss things in adolescence, but I don't think that counts). I was amazed to find this whole slew of used up, half used up, and barely used lipsticks...
