    If anything ever happens to the MUFE rouge artist intense lipsticks or Tarte lights camera lashes mascara, I will lay on the floor and spend the rest of my life mourning.

    Wet ‘n’ Wild Brulee. :( It’s such a great eyeshadow, I use it for so many things…I hope it’s never discontinued, but it probably will be…I heard from an employee at Wal-Mart (the only place I can find the singles now, in my area) that Brulee in specific was discontinued and will no longer be restocked…I really hope it isn’t true.

      I dropped mine and it cracked everywhere! :( A drugstore shade that is sort of simlair just with a more satin finish is in the Covergirl Exact Eyelights Quad for Brown eyes :)

      I emailed Wet ‘n’ Wild and told me the shade wasn’t being discontinued. :) What’s happening is that they’re changing the numbering/categorization of it, so that’s why the employee probably thought that.

    Until they issue a matte version of this, MAC Odyssey lipstick.
    Also – I would really miss the LORAC Pro Palette.
    And one of my favorite skincare sets is the IMAGE Vitamin C set. Favorites are the face cleanser, hydrating repair cream, anti-aging serum, daily defense moisturizer. It is so soothing. I don’t know about the anti-aging part (my skin is it’s own bundle of joys and issues but dryness/firmness is not an issue), but many do they feel like heaven.

  12. I would hate to see the Revlon Colorstay foundation to be discontinued … But I fear its already discontinued in india :(

      I hear they’re changing the packaging, to include a pump, and some areas have it now. Even here in Los Angeles many shelves are empty, but I’m hoping they’ll soon be replaced with the new bottles.

    Oddly I’ve seen so many products / colours discontinued that I don’t tend to worry about it any longer, I use it as an opportunity to find a new formula or colour and get out of ruts.

    That said if Laura Mercier was going to discontinue Caviar Sticks I would go and stock up immediately…

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Melissa divinem1

    OMG, I’ll die if they ever discontinue MUFE HD liquid foundation. It doesn’t contain SPF, which I’m allergic to, and has a huge range of shades. Love it!

    Also, Estee Lauder Vérité Moisture Relief Cream, made specifically for sensitive skin. It’s like Nectar of the Gods on my face and decolletage. Aaahhhhhhh….

  15. Dominique

    Nars eyeshadow trios ( but I think they have ? ), I love them from Douce France to High Society.

    Dolce and Gabanna powder foundation…last all day, feels fresh when applied…not sticky like Bare eScentuals, and last a good while…doesnt feel cheap like MAC Studio Fix.

    Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara. It’s the only mascara that holds curl beautifully on my stick straight lashes without giving me raccoon eyes. Nothing else comes close! I’d stockpile this stuff if they ever reformulated or discontinued this.

  21. This is a lot harder question than I thought it would be. I very rarely wear the same thing even twice a week. I guess the only things that would make me none too happy if they were discontinued would be foundations and concealers that I use. Bobbi Brown Skin foundation in alabaster, MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NW10, and the MAC concealer palettes. This is mostly due to the fact that it is near impossible to find any complexion products that match me.

    I’m not very loyal to products. In my opinion, there are too many good products out there to get stuck on one specific color/product. That may change once I finish grad school and begin working, but for now I’m going to enjoy trying different things.

  22. This is a really tough one! MAC Blot Powder and Painterly Paint Pot and their lipsticks in Craving and Capricious. Clarins Fix Makeup setting spray. Tarte Natural Beauty blush (though they do have other shades that would work for me and I love the formulation of that brand of blushes).

  23. MAC Woodwinked! It’s my all-time favorite eye shadow.

  24. Yellowlantern

    Cle de Peau Concealer, Shiseido Glowing Matte lipstick, Benefit Highbeam. I feel like I could deal with anything else getting discontinued.

    I’d be upset if Stila discontinued their stay all day liquid liners. They’re so easy! I’m a complete spaz about putting my makeup on, and I still get really shapely cat eyes out of that liner. I think I’ve bought about 10 refills over time, it’s crazy.

    Also, Christine! I was the person who was trying Le Metier for the first time through your curated set. I am in love with every single piece! The creamy lip/cheek product isn’t the sort of thing I usually like for my skin, so I shared it with my mom, and she’s wild about it. (And she hasn’t tried new makeup in about 30 years!) Thanks so much for a really wonderful set. I’ve already added a couple of new shadows and a lip creme to my LMdB collection on my own!

    • Oooh!! I’m SO happy that you are loving all of the things in the set (well, your mom loving the cheek/lip product counts!). YAY!!!!! I am thrilled to hear it. Which shadows and lip creme did you add?

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Liz Liz

        I loved Framboise so much that I ordered ‘You Don’t Know Bordeaux’, in anticipation of fall. And I’m crazy about it! I’m really interested in swatching more of their lip cremes soon, because the colors are so intense and the formula is fantastic. As for shadows, I picked up Jojo and Corinthian, because I’d heard so much about them, and thought I could pull together a nice neutral fall eye with those two and Fig. Again, they didn’t disappoint. I can’t wait to see more from them, so thanks so much for the introduction!

    Great question…Bobbi Brown Long Wearing Compact Foundation, Perricone MD Photo Plasma, Clarins Wrinkle Control Sunscreen for Eyes, Lipstick Queen lipsticks, Lancome Cils Booster, Deborah Lippmann nail polish in Careless Whisper and Sweet Dreams, Zoya nail polish in Cassi, Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners, and Burberry eyeshadows. Yep. And you can add Mistral soaps and body lotion to the list.

    MAC Vex and Patina and Humid shadows, MAC Hue lipstick, MAC Virgin Isle Cream Color, L’Oreal Voluminous mascara, Lancome Black Coffee eyeliner, Joe Fresh Fuchsia lipstick , NARS Sheer Glow foundation. Some of these I have gone through many of!

  37. Christina

    Initially, I thought of several products and then I realized that when (not if, since most products are eventually discontinued, replaced, or revamped with a different formula) a product is gone, it doesn’t matter much. I’ve been buying make-up long enough to have used products that I thought I loved at the time, to have them no longer available, and then replaced by something I like just as much if not better. No brand loyalty here — as long as it’s not made in China.

  38. Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Glosses – I have at least one of those in every handbag! My favorite mascara is still Clinique Lash Doubling and I freaked out when I didn’t see a tester at the counter last time I visited. The MUA said they hadn’t heard it would be discontinued but I guess I’ll rather get at least two of those. I would also hate to see MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, Eyebrow Crayon in Spiked, Expensive Pink and Shale ES discontinued – I really, really love those.

  39. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of kate Kate

    Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, although as their top selling product it is unlikely to get discontinued. It removes every last scrap of make-up including any type of mascara using natural ingredients, lovely.

    Laura Mercier Secret Camoflage Concealer. It’s simply the best

    I love to try new beauty products but all these items I have never been able to find anything to exactly dupe with the same results

  44. I very much agree with you on the NARS eye primer. I haven’t even bothered trying any other eye primer since using this product. It’s freaking fabulous.

    Other things I would hate to see disappear off the radar screen: Guerlain Meteorite Perles primer, Rouge Bunny Rouge Magnitude Ubiquitous mascara in Almandine, Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine, Bobbi Brown gel liner in Caviar Ink, and a really key product for me: Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Warm

    OHMERGAWD! How did I not know that NARS is dc’ing its eyeshadow primer? It’s my fave! I just bought a back up a few months ago. Can I still get it? I was just at Sephora this weekend! I’m in a panic. I’m so sad! GRRRRR!

    Ok nevermind misread the question, but I will be buying another back up to my back up now. Silly me. LOL

  47. I would die if they discontinued, Estee Lauder BB Cream, Revlon Colour Stay Primer, Lime Crime Lipsticks, Maybelline Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara, Too Faced Glam Gloss, Clarins Pure Melt Cleanser.

  55. The Kat Von D tattoo liquid liner. The one with the felt tip. It’s the only eyeliner that I can use to get nice winged eyeliner. It looks horrible when I try it with a pencil or gel eyeliner. -.-
