Limited edition items of the past

Hi ladies! (and some gents Smiley Wink)

 

So recently I developed an obsession with getting my hands on the LE MAC Archie's Girls collection. I finally got all the items I wanted from Ebay, so I wanted to share! My last two looks on the What Are You Wearing Today thread used the blush in the picture. How cute is the packaging? It brings back teenage nostalgia for me. I'm sad I missed out on it when it was released, but I just wasn't that into makeup at the time and didn't know of its existence.

 

 

Anyway, this got me thinking...what item or items, now discontinued or hard to find, have you been obsessed with getting your hands on? I know for some people, it's Meteorites, and I also saw a LE Tom Ford blush in the hauls thread!

 

Feel free to share pictures if you have them Smiley Happy

I happened to came across this limited edition CPB x Ashely Longshore loose powder while browsing the web for Clé de Peau. The packaging is insanely gorgeous.

Who sold this powder? I never saw it with the other products from this collection. It is not even pictures in any of the reviews of the collection. I'm mystified!

@Euradyce, I'm not entirely sure but I think the loose powder was an an Asia-exclusive item from the collection. It seems to be a trend as Dior and Guerlain have also had some yearly covetable, limited-edition items for Asia only.

 

Spoiler
I would grab almost every Asia-exlusive Dior released powder in a heartbeat if it was available in U.S.

That whole set is so beautiful!!! I would have given an unborn child for it! (Side note: I plan on never actually having kids.) 

Re: Limited edition items of the past

@jisub89 WOW! That is some gorgeous packaging, I love it! And your spoiler is drool worthy. I'm loving that powder box with the diamonds and emeralds on top. That's a thing of beauty right there!

@pixiedust2 It is, isn't it? Did some more sleuthing and it seems to be a fancy paper packaging for CPB's cream.

@jisub89 It just keeps getting better!! I'm pretty in love with just that cardboard box, but now you show me that jar! 😱 it's gorgeous!!! Great find and thanks for sharing pics, really beautiful!

I was able to get my hands on the Karl lagerfeld for Sephora palette and I love his outline in the shadows. I use it time to time.image.jpgimage.jpg

 

Re: Limited edition items of the past

This isn't an item of a the past but it is Limited Edition and I wanted to make sure everyone gets a chance to check it out! Peter Thomas Roth's Skintastic Mask Set is amazing. Love all the masks and it is an incredible value. I highly recommend it, I will have to get a backup before they are discontinued. 

Re: Limited edition items of the past

Oh I forgot to ask, which shades did you end up getting from the Archie's Girls collection? I only bought one lipstick from it, I'm sure you could probably guess which one haha.

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I'm guessing it was either Daddy's Little Girl or Ronnie Red? Probably Ronnie Red...hmmm Smiley Tongue

 

I got Ronnie Red and Oh Oh Oh. The lip gloss is in Mall Madness 

Re: Limited edition items of the past

Yes it was Ronnie Red! You guys know me too well haha

I saw ice cream in the thread and thought what is kssweetheart making me hungry for now.  So I was wrong on who it was, but was right that you're making me want it.  Sucks to want food you cannot have.  Ten years ago, soufflés (my favorite dessert) were on a lot of menus.  Now they are hard to find.  T minus 5 months until my next one (even though it will not be my beloved chocolate).

We can always make exceptions for ice cream!!!

yum!!! Have you tried it?

Re: Limited edition items of the past

YUP! The cherry swirl is like the cherry in the Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia, with tiny bits of cherry. Surprisingly good! My sister is not a fan though because of the cherry.

Re: Limited edition items of the past

The Cinderella mirror from the Disney collection. I have no idea how this happened, because I check Sephora's website every day for new things, but I completely missed the Cinderella collection and only found the Jasmine one by chance. I have the Jasmine and Ariel mirrors, and it kills me that I don't have the complete collection lol Smiley Very Happy Not to mention it is sooooo beautiful! Maybe one day I'll be just crazy enough to buy one for $100 on ebay lol

Re: Limited edition items of the past

This is for Shrewdle: Hi there! Tried to reply under your post, but I got an error message Smiley Tongue Anyway, I went to Amazon and found the Blue Lumiere palette from YSL 2014 summer collection Smiley Happy Go take a peek

Re: Limited edition items of the past

Hey thanks for the message... I just tried searching for it on Amazon and there's only an "external website" listing available for the palette, which points to the YSL site (where it is sold out). And the only other listing is in the UK by an individual seller (it's probably just me but I only purchase from authorized retailers for anything cosmetic/health related), so I guess I will have to settle for just looking at online swatches/photos for this one! (If I didn't find the link that you were talking about would you mind sending me the link through a PM?) TY!!
