Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

Mine would be UD's liner in 1999 Smiley Sad

I found some dupes online but havent gotten to ordering and trying them out yet.

 

anyone else have heartaches over discontinued products?

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

Hmm, I hadn't thought about them going bad! I guess i'll suffer and wear it more often Smiley Tongue

Do the sprayNcry

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

I feel your pain arielaaaaaaaa. Sometimes there are knock offs that smell okay, although I never tried any & don't know if there's a knock off of this.

 

On occasion I wear "White Shoulders" and a friend smelled kind of like she was wearing it, I wasn't sure though. She admitted that it was a knock off brand, don't remember the name the knock off company gave it -- I always called it "Beige Shoulders" of "Off-White Shoulders"  she was okay with it.

I saw her recently for the first time in Yeeeaaaarrrs and she still remembered our little 'Off-White Shoulders' joke. Made me Smiley Happy

 

But I know how you feel, you'd like to buy tons of it, but sadly, they don't always have the longest shelf life. Some people put their perfumer in the Fridge, I don't know if that's advisable. You should put it in a cool, dry, dark place - like a closet on an inside/non-heated wall, so that it's not subject to heat & cold. Hope that helps a bit. Smiley Happy

Bet you'll find something you love even better!

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

Lol Off White Shoulders! I have a lot of perfume I LOVE so it's not a huge deal when i run out but i love it, it's so unique! But i will definitely have to find a good storage spot if i ever find my missing bottle of it! 

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

thank you so much arielaaaaaaaa, you have no idea how much better I feel. I have too many things that are missing and need to be found.

Sad for you that you have the same problem.

Glad for me that you have the same problem.

 

I know, I'm rotten.

Philosophy Hope in a Bottle. They have one with a new name that says it's exactly the same as the old formula but with sunscreen. The downside is that I usually only use it at night and Really don't want to put SPF on my face to go to sleep. That's just wrong. So, I'm disappointed. I'll live.

Philosophy Supernatural Lip Gloss - had yummy mint flavor and great colors, Smiley Sad about this.

Bourjois Cosmetic Lip gloss, first got it here at Sephora, now I only find it at Amazon, from independent sellers and at strawberry.com (think that;s it) I'm afraid they're going to be old and nasty and strawberry doesn't take returns.

 

I have to give Props to Philosophy - one of my all time favorite products in the world was discontinued. It was Philosophy Guru Hot Salt Scrub -- 

O. M. G. - it is the most amazing orange scent, I lived for it. Then they pulled the rug out from under me and discontinued it several years ago.

I still had one, untouched, sitting on a shelf with a little light shining on that masterpiece (okay, I'm not That far gone) But I did still have one from years ago. Then they started making it again!!! Happy days are here again!! I want to buy truckloads of it! Don't know how long it will be around this time. I'm just thankful and need to keep stocking up. 

Thank You Philosophy!!!

Re: Bourjois -- it isn't sold in the US anymore, but it is sold in Canada (and elsewhere in the world, but I figured Canada is closest), so I imagine you could order it from websites there. That said, if you order from Amazon, it may not be old at all, but I'd make sure the seller is reputable. I love Bourjois; I was really sad when they left the US market. 

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

You can also buy Bourjois products from ASOS. Plus they always have free shipping, even though it's from the UK!

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

Lancome Aroma Tonic in the green bottle. LOVED. I miss it so.

Also, The Body Shop had a nail varnish remover that was really good. Purple and in a glass bottle, I liked it a lot.

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

MAC Kohl Liner in Foxy Lady. They broke my heart when they discontinued that liner.  It was the perfect shade of red without being too much for eye liner.  I went through probably about 5 of these pencils before they stopped making them. I have a little stub of my last pencil left.  I just can't bear the thought of parting with it.  Too many great memories!  Ha!  I wish so bad that they would bring it back.  I try to stay hopeful about it being relaunched. MAC is notorious for pulling stuff like that.

Herve Leger perfume and Benefit She Laq eyeliner sealer.  

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

This is going way back, Clinique Long Pretty Lashes mascara.  I loved it at the time.

 

Speaking of Clinique mascara, anyone ever try the Bottom Lash mascara? It comes in a teeny tiny tube with a teeny tiny wand, so cute, It does a nice job for those with short bottom lashes.

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

I have the bottom lash mascara and I love it! I've even used it on my teensy upper lashes that are in my outer corner Smiley Happy

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

@mychoi -- have you ever actually used up an eyeliner?  I came close once, but then I lost it.  It was getting down to a nub.  Maybe only about an inch and a half left, but still usable!

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

I still have 1999 left because I use it sparingly, but I've used up almost all of a nyx white eyeliner once that I put on my waterline. I consider about an inch an a half finished because how else do you put the cap back on. X)

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

I'm not sure if you've gotten to try it yet Mychoi or if anyone else has weighed in, but Marc Jacobs' Gel Crayon in Jazz is a dupe for 1999.

Marc Jacobs Beauty - Highliner - Gel Crayon

 

Here's an image from it being swatched:

 

The only thing is that it doesn't have the same sizing in microglitter/shimmer as 1999, but the texture applies super smooth and it's soooooo longwearing and waterproof. 1999 is on the far left and you can see the berry and golden shimmer to it even more.

 

 

Here's a closer up shot of Jazz:

 

It definitely does have that shimmer aspect, but it's a lot more fine than the UD one.

 

The MJ formula is amazing, I had swatches on my hand and even in the shower with scrubbing they didn't come off!

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

Yes I have heard and swatched. Smiley Happy It is a pretty close dupe and I am impressed, don't get me wrong. But like a pet or a child, no replacement is every the same. Smiley Sad

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

True, I do notice the texture of the MJ ones are more of a gel-crayon with how they glide while the UD ones are like a creamier crayon.

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

mychoi - I just went to look and you are two behind me in RTSB 2.1 and I have a stash of UD's 1999 because I stocked up on it when it was on hautelook for $4 a pop. I will add one in there for you.

Re: Wishful thinking: What discontinued products do you want to see come back?

thankyou!!!!

 

Smiley Very Happy <3
