Joni Mitchell once sang: "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone." Sure, she was probably talking about time, friendships, and love, but we like to think the lyric could apply to just about anything — including beauty products.

You may have overlooked that new crimson lipstick before, but once the stock is wiped clean, you lust for it in a totally different way.
