Mego Lip Gloss Lockets
Back in the day, my sisters were all about this flavored lip gloss craze. It's funny how certain memories stick with you. I can distinctly recall a time when I ventured into their room and, well, let's just say I got myself into a bit of a pickle. The main issue wasn't the fact that I decided to try on their lip gloss – oh yes, I did that – but rather the fact that I ended up indulging in an unexpected snack: lip gloss.
Now, you might think that lip gloss would be this incredibly delectable treat for the taste buds. I mean, it smells amazing, so why wouldn't it taste just as good? Well, turns out, the taste didn't quite match up to the smell. But here's the kicker: even though the first stick of lip gloss didn't exactly win me over with its flavor, I somehow found myself reaching for a second one. I know, I know, it doesn't make a ton of sense. But hey, when you're a kid, logic sometimes takes a backseat to curiosity.
Of course, as luck would have it, my secret lip gloss escapade didn't stay secret for very long. My sisters caught wind of my little adventure, and I initially attempted the classic denial strategy. I mean, who wouldn't deny something like that? Unfortunately for me, my face and lips were sporting some undeniable evidence – remnants of the lip gloss buffet I had treated myself to. It's safe to say that my attempt at being the stealthy lip gloss bandit was a failure.
The outcome? Well, let's just say I faced the consequences of my lip gloss munching session. And to this day, during family gatherings or get-togethers, my sisters never fail to bring up the incident and give me a good-natured ribbing. Yep, I'm forever associated with the lip gloss incident.
Oh, and let's not forget the seasonal twist to this story: chapped lip season. In my household, that's a serious matter. I mean, imagine dealing with chapped lips after your notorious lip gloss escapade – talk about a potential embarrassment overload.
And speaking of lip gloss, one of my sisters actually had this Lip Gloss Locket. Now, I'm not entirely sure whether it was a legit Mego creation or some kind of knockoff, but one thing was for sure: that thing smelled like a fruity paradise. Unfortunately, the taste didn't quite match up – more wax-like than fruity bliss.
