The chantecaille lumière rose highlighter. It came back this summer but only for about 5 minutes before it sold out. I really only want it for the compact, which is stunning.

Definitely the Berlin Girl Glow. But there have been some limited edition Nars products that sorely tempted me. Like the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof liquid blush from a few years ago. And the Studio 54 cheek palette.

I have found the Nars Studio 54 Cheek palette along with other brand new discontinued products available on Poshmark. Also it’s a goldmine for out of stock Boutique items…meaning absolutely new with boxing, at amazing listing prices. For collectors it’s a great place for hard to find palettes from years ago.

Oh! I have a Burberry Silk & Bloom I just used a couple of times – I’d be happy to swap it with you for something if you’re interested in getting another! 🙂 (I don’t know if you ever did swapping back in its online heyday in the beauty world, Christine – I miss it – I did hundreds of swaps and it was a lot of fun!)

As for me, I’d enjoy seeing Givenchy Bucolic Poppy come back, or Chantecaille Aquablush sticks (now THERE’s a throwback!). I loved that formula! Or that whole Rock & Republic blush line!

Easy – MAC Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush. I got Early Morning from the same release but it’s just waaaay too orange for me. I should have got Subtle Breeze; I kick myself (not literally) every now and then for NOT getting it. But I love the finish of Early Morning – such a satin-y glow – just not the colour and I can’t help but think that Subtle Breeze would have the same finish. Also – had I know that UD was going to discontinue their fabulous blushes, I’d have got one or two more shades (I have Rapture but there are a few more I’d have loved).

…also, I’d have bought a back up of MAC’s Sweet Sentiment blush, which is one of my 2 favourite and most used blushes.

Marc Jacobs Dew You Dew Drops! Even though I don’t usually use it on my cheeks, I LOVE mixing it in with my foundation for the perfect amount of dewiness and soft glow!

For cheeks exclusively: DoC Miramé.

Same! LuxeTrance wasn’t limited edition – but they discontinued it anyway! Best damn lipstick formula I’ve come across for sure. I treasure my four and would love to see more of them in brownie caramel sandy nude shades.

MAC Pink Cult. It’s one of my favorite neutral blushes, and there’s nothing else quite like it.

NARS Hot Tryst Palette should be brought back and made permanent. It’s that good.
