Limited edition items of the past

Limited edition items of the past

Hi ladies! (and some gents :smileywink:)

 

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 :smileyhappy:

Gorgeous!

I want MAC Ocean City and Kelly Yum Yum.  It really gets me that I just barely missed both.  I am almost afraid to search for more, because I am sure I will find a bunch more I must have.

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I missed out on the Kelly Osbourne MAC collection, too. I really want Dodgy Girl but keep trying to convince myself I don't need it.

Dodgy Girl is very pretty too.

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I saw ocean city on ebay for $34.95 and kelly for 30+ if you'd be willing to buy it for that price.

Partially because I do not want to be robbed and partially, because I am skeptical of unauthorized retailers (especially ones I do not know), I am holding off for now.  If they're meant to be mine, they will be eventually.  Otherwise, I will jump on the next craze.  

 

That said, I have looked around.  Whenever I click on a $34.95 link, the price jumps up instantly.  I think the $34.95 is for the other color in the collection that does not interest me at this point.

 

I bought Candy Yum Yum to tide me over until I can get my hands on Kelly Yum Yum, so I will be all right.

I wasn't heavily into makeup in 2007, but 7 years later I'm eyeing the MAC Limited Edition Fafi Collection. The products are so old now that I refuse to buy it on ebay, but I think I might settle for a figurine. Unless anyone has any other ideas?! Would it be horrible for me to depot the product and refill it with another?

I had an obsession with Heatherette (collection from MAC) and I made it my mission to get all of the lippies! Got all of them and sold all of them recently except for Lollipop Loving which I cannot bring myself to get rid of. I was super obsessed with mac lol.

People actually buy them for 75 dollars each! I just grew out of hot pink you know what I mean? I kept one just as  a collectors item hehe.

Oh wow haha! Nice.

I have the Proenza Schuler Ocean City blush and Recently got the Chanel illuminating powder. I bought the YSL Fall 2014 Coture oalette but it's being returned. I have every color in it. 

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I saw your picture of the Chanel powder! *drool* Wish the Ocean City blush wasn't so hard to get. I'm going to be more proactive about purchasing LE collections from now on!

Re: Limited edition items of the past

The Chanel Powder is worth every penny. I'm glad I jumped on OC when it came out.

Sephora released a set of Disney princess compacts that were gorgeous. I'm not into Disney princesses at ALL but I have to admit that whenever I see them mentioned in passing on a blog or YouTube I wish I had snatched them up. People went wild over them, particularly the Ariel one if I'm remembering correctly. 

 

Editing to add pictures. Pretty!

Yeah I saw them and basically had to have them.  I got Jasmine and Ariel on ebay.  Someday, Cinderella...

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I'm so glad I got the Cinderella one, but honestly at the time I didn't realize how crazy everyone was over these, I just needed a new compact mirror xD

Looking back, I wish I had bought the Jasmine one before it sold out :smileysad:

Re: Limited edition items of the past

I forgot to mention this as well! I got the Jasmine one on Ebay a few months ago. I SO wish I could get my hands on a Cinderella one. They're so pretty!

Re: Limited edition items of the past

The Cinderella mirror is the most difficult to find. As someone who spent over 8 hours calling Sephoras around the country to get that mirror and had zero problem getting the other two in the collection, I can attest to the rarity of the Cinderella one.
