I stumbled upon Chanel Phoenix right before it was discontinued. Fortunately I was able to pick up a couple more before it was completely sold out. It quickly became an HG product for me.

Delux Beauty Crush Lip/Cheek tint in Sugar Melon, the most amazing color for the cheeks! Becca Beach Tint in Peach was a close dupe (but more orange) but that was discontinued as well!

Not a recent discontinuation, but I still miss MAC Scanty l/s. Still trying to work out a good dupe for it. πŸ™

Yes! This was a great product. I’m still working through a pot of ‘Peach Satin’. Every time I put it on I think “Why on earth did they discontinue these mousse blushes?”.

Tritto on the Dream Mousse blushes. The bouncy ones are chalky and hard to blend. The L’Oreal cream blush in a pot is a decent substitute, but the shade I bought is a little too matte.

I’ve hit pan on my HG cream blush Soft Plum, and I gave the other one I had to my mom awhile back before I knew it was DCed. I was seriously bummed to hit the store and see that they not only had reformulated but that the shade range had completely changed. πŸ™ You break my heart, Maybelline.

Definitely the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Ash for filling in my eyebrows. Gah that = perfection! It’s the only HG product of mine that’s been discontinued (thankfully), though that occurred over a year ago. πŸ™

I have dark brown brows and use Tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof brow mousse – it’s amazing! It’s SO pigmented, and a tiny bit goes a long way. Maybe that would work for you!

I haven’t actually swatched those yet, but I’m not loving that I have to pay for a new brush every time I repurchase… But maybe I’m being too picky?

I mean, I’ve virtually looked at every standalone cream shadow/gel liner/cream liner from every brand that’s available at the department store (and a few at the drugstore), and the closest thing I found in terms of color, texture, longevity, and ease of application is the MUFE Aqua Brow in 25. What do you think of that? πŸ™‚

For reference purposes: the Ash color is this neutral dark brown that leans a tad taupe and has a greenish undertone, rather than purple or blue one like the Maybelline Color Tattoo E/S in Tough as Taupe.

However, there are a few products that I’d like to try but cannot easily access them, such as that eye brow product in the pot from Mally, and another similar product from either Vincent Longo, Kevin Aucoin, o something (I can’t remember). But alas, I’m not going to order something without testing it first.

But yeah, maybe I should really try the Tarte poduct, or at least swatch the shades. How have you gotten around the brush issue?


I just bought the MUFE in 25 and am in LOVE! I find a lot of darker brow-specific products to be too brown/reddish, but this has just enough taupe/grey for my nearly black brows. A little dot is the perfect amount for both brows, and it lasts all day, unlike powders. You should definitely give it a try!

Not really recently, but I was really peeved when Almay discontinued the Smart Shade powders.
I have a knack for discovering favourite products when they’re on clearance because they’re discontinued. My most recent finds: L’Oreal Triple Active moisturiser for normal/combo skin and Biore’s Microderm exfoliator πŸ™

It wasn’t a HG product because I never got to try it, but I’m bummed about Kiehl’s tinted moisturizer, too. I heard good things and poof. However they told me they’re relaunching a BB cream instead this spring – whether it’s the TM in a new hat or something different I couldn’t say.

Other than that I haven’t been into makeup long enough to have any favorite discontinued products *g*

Nothing recently… The most “recent” happened a few years ago, and that was Max Factor, as a whole, but especially the Pan Stik; however, the brand is still available, to an extent, but just not in the US.

Of course, there have been LE products, but I don’t place those in the same category. For that, I would have to say Chanel Notorious; although I never had a chance to try it, I think it would have been a great fit, and I’m on high alert for something similar.

MAC Party Parrot of course =C I bought extra but still…and I’m still very annoyed that MAC’s Prince Noir lipstick is not in their Pro stores. Much nicer than Film Noir (eww) if I do say so myself. =CC

I’m really pissed Chanel discontinued Ballet Russe (Rouge Coco #29). I wanted it for so long, only to find out that no store had any stock left where I live. Luckily, I snagged one on ebay (unused).
I’d also like to try Kaska Beige, provided I can find one…

Not recent but I’m still bummed about Nars’ Sertao being discontinued. Perfect shade for my olive tone and nothing ive bought since has ever compared. πŸ™ *tear*

Not a holy grail product, but I was certainly miffed when they discontinued most of the UD Deluxe shadows. Honey was such a beautiful color with my gray/green eyes.

I hate Smashbox and the only product worth the money was their cream liner in midnight brown… HG brow product for me πŸ™

My beloved Chanel Rouge Coco Ruban Rose πŸ™ my first Rouge Coco, I loved it so much it was such a pretty color. The closest color I have is Rouge Coco Gardenia but itΒ΄s not the same since Gardenia has more pink in it and itΒ΄s darker. I had no idea Ruban Rose was to be discontinued and I never got a back up sadly πŸ™ .
