The one that got away...

I think we have all experienced that moment where you go to get one of your favorite beauty products only to be let down when the store clerk tells you, "Sorry mam that item has been discontinued".  Smiley Sad

So here's the question, Has any of your favorite products meet the unfortunate discontinued list? and were you ever able to find something similar?

 

 

 

 

(My product would be Cargo's Wet/Dry foundation and no I've yet to find a replacement!!!) p.s this is my first post so sorry for any mistakes.

 

Re: The one that got away...

I don't know if it counts, but I have the worst habit of falling in love with something limited edition and then totally going back and both on whether to buy it now or not or later or not until eventually it is gone and NOWHERE has it all of a sudden. SO. MANY. TIMES. 

 

I should learn my lesson one day but I don't know if I ever will. I did convince myself to order the Urban Decay OZ palettes, but I hesitated on Ariel and know there is a store with Jasmine palettes lurking inside but still haven't talked myself into picking one up, haha. I'm going to miss my chance. Again. And then kick myself forever. Again.

Great first post Smiley Happy

Most of yay favorite perfumes have been discontinued or reformulated, but thankfully there are plenty of lovely fragrances out there to choose from. I still miss Donna Karan Chaos though.

Re: The one that got away...

I was upset for over a year when Vera Wang's Rock Princess disappeared. Although I haven't found a real replacement for it, there are other good ones. *sigh*

Re: The one that got away...

I totally feel ya on this one. I miss my Dior Addict Shine!

Re: The one that got away...

@lcresz, the worst is when perfume is discontinued because they are so unique and hard to replace!

@rikkie I also wait till the last minute to get limited edition things, its like you know you want it but you figure you can wait just a little, then bam its gone!

(I am writing back this way because when I click reply to it says sorry unable to complete request)

Re: The one that got away...

I always think "next time I'll get it for sure!" and then a couple months go by and I swear a black hole has swallowed every single one of that item that ever existed. Tarte Aqualillies Palette, why did you do this to meeeee?? 

Re: The one that got away...

@pinkonyx  I had to download Mozilla Firefox (it's free) to be able to reply.  I used to get the same response.

Re: The one that got away...

Aw, this is a great first post, girl! Smiley Happy

 

I used to love the Orange Sapphire scent from B&BW... I know a ton of people didn't like it, but I loved how it smelled, haha

 

Haven't been able to find anything similar, but I haven't tried looking too hard either.

 

The Stila Lash Visor was another thing I was absolutely in love with, bought three full bottles of the stuff! This is coming from a girl who switches her mascara religiously, I just love trying them out.

 

Ahh I'm sure there's always something new coming out! Smiley Happy

Re: The one that got away...

Murad Exfoliating Pomegranate Mask. I'm so in love with this and just found out it's bee discontinued. Smiley Sad Luckily i have a packet and a half left so i will make it stretch!! I am hopeful that the OH Blueberry Enzyme Mask will be similar!

Re: The one that got away...

I wish I could remember the names of them, but there were a few Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes that I missed out on and wanted really badly at the time.  :-/

 

Also, some of the Sephora Favorites sets -- all the makeup ones that came out this year, as well as the most recent perfume one that's no longer in stock...the sets are my absolute favorite thing to get at Sephora, so I always feel really bummed when I miss out on one. I'm reallyyyy hoping that the makeup set that's out right now will continue to be on sale a bit longer (ie, September, when I start my job) b/c I must have it!! Fingers crossed!

Re: The one that got away...

I bought one of the discontinued Kat Von D eye shadow pallets, they go on so nice. 

Re: The one that got away...

I'm a little worried that a product I mentioned yesterday is being phased out.  The Lorac I'm so sensitive primer.  I found it in my local SiJCP, but Sephora doesn't even have it online now.  I asked the person in the store, but she didn't seem to know anything.  

 

I'm hoping I will be able to find it in stores, but I don't know.  

 

I have seen ulta carries it online.  

 

I just hope it doesn't go away.   

Re: The one that got away...

i also have to go to ulta now for my Cargo, because Sephora no longer sells it Smiley Sad

Re: The one that got away...

MAC had a kohl eyeliner called Foxy Lady.  It was a really vibrant deep red metallic color.  It made my green eyes stand out so much.  I bought it many different times.  Then when I was down to a stub one day I went to buy more and it had been discontinued Smiley Sad  It seriously broke my heart.  I have not been able to find a color that looks anything like that.  Why MAC why?! 

Re: The one that got away...

Ooh good topic!

 

Not for me, but for my mom.  

 

Years and years ago, Sephora had a shade of one of the $5 lip pencils that my mom dubbed "the perfect shade"   Then, one day they changed the line and that shade (it was a cool toned purple pink, almost lavender but not quite) was gone.  For literally two years my mother would go into Sephora with the little stub she had left and well-meaning sales people would swatch every. single. liner. the store carried trying to find a dupe.  We never found one.  She still pulls it out and tries to find a replacement sometimes.

Re: The one that got away...

i hope one day she will find it

Re: The one that got away...

It looks like the concealer I've been using has been either discontinued or significantly changed (with a new name).    Fortunately, I bought a new tube a couple of months ago because I am virtually out (you know when you squeeze the tube so hard at the tip that your thumb hurts?).  Lucky for me!

Re: The one that got away...

Great thread!

 

I wish Dior Lip Jelly Pens were never limited edition! Come August, I'll be stalking the near Sephora stores for back-ups! Smiley Happy

 

Also, Benefit's face exfoliator. Why, oh why, did they have to discontinue it?!

Re: The one that got away...

The lip jelly pens are such gorgeous colors! I need to go pick some up before they are gone forever. 

Re: The one that got away...

They're also very hydrating and leave such glossy finishes, unlike *ahem* Clinique Chubby Sticks lol
