    The last product that I loved but was discontinued: Chanel RAL Dragon. This will always be my red lippie love.

    – i think it was a maybeline mascara (but i’m really not sure). it came in an animal print tube and was amazing! it gave very natural looking lashes.
    – i really love sephora’s pantone line, but everything they make is limited edition. my favorite was their apricot brandy blush. i still have it but it cracked when i dropped it :(
    – burberry brit perfume. i’ve loved it for YEARS and will always repurchase it.

    Last product you loved but was discontinued? Revlon Colorburst lipsticks. Love the formula and colors, but they were gone so quickly!
    Last product you loved but was limited edition? Bare Escentials 8-pan Ready Eyeshadows. The colors are great (I have The Finer Things), but I also just love the small size of the palette. And it’s a good brush and mirror too!

  15. ■Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Warm

    The last product I loved even more because it was permanent: Um, maybe Bourjois Round Pot blushes because I do own a lot or my pressed Meteorites.
