Oh, there are so many… Guerlain Gems, probably. I just find that one hard to replace, and it’s a shade I usually reach for on off-days, so it is one that I wear. I love Chanel Dragon, and though I haven’t found a perfect dupe for it, there are plenty of gorgeous red lipsticks that I enjoy wearing as well.

MAC Fresh Salmon lipstick. No question. It’s my holy grail lipstick and basically undupable. Geurlain Nahema is the closest match, and it’s still not right.

The Play Time and Villain collections by MAC. Both were so good. Also MAC “Spice” as a lipstick again would be fantastic.

L’oreal Sparkle Frenzy, I’ve been looking for something like it for so long, but it never ends up being THAT specific red with THAT specific golden glitter.
Also, OCC Tryptich. A pat of that golden lip tar on the center on the lips can change an entire look!

Bobbi Brown’s Bahama brown blush! I got it after it was discontinued in the Desert twilight duo. It looks scary dark and silvery in the pan, but it turns into the perfect mauvey brown on my fair, slightly cool toned skin. There are no dupes for it that I know of. I’ve tried mixing MAC Sculpt with BB’s Telluride bronzer, and that is as close as I’ve come! If anyone knows of a good dupe, please fill me in!

Chanel’s Dragon would be tips though I don’t know if it was limited edition or just discontinued for some odd and unforgivable reason. Estée Lauder Modern Mercury… the powder and all three lipsticks. Why they haven’t done more mattes is beyond me! Also MAC’s Grid and Blooming Lovely lipsticks! And Bubbles of course! And all of those damn shadows from Peacocky! Those were amazing! Why haven’t they made more of THOSE?! Ugh!

Discontinued for an odd and unforgivable reason 🙁 I had hoped they were going to just redo the range with a “new” formulation that was close enough, but they never replicated Dragon in the least bit since discontinuing it.

My Mother with your exact skin undertones and hair color laments the loss of this one, too! It was a gorgeous, luxurious formula and the level of depth and sort of rich moisture you could get from it was so difficult to replicate… Ugh, I would have loved to have seen it expanded. If they did a burgundy shade I would have just DIED.

I would like to see Pleasureflush released again. I got into MAC for this collection and somehow missed this. I have regretted it since!!

Ooooh. Le Metier de Beaute Red my Lips, the ENTIRE line of Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill from the Acqua collection (Oh #24, you beautiful beast…), Guerlain Wulong (I regret to say that I use this every day and it’s worth it), and basically every Le Metier eye Kaleidoscope ever made (especially the Oscar de la Renta one. Woof.)…

Uhhhh too many. Topping my list is probably MAC’s Mega Metal eyeshadows, since they repromote A LOT so it’s theoretically possible, but the Mega Metals remained a one-hit wonder. 🙁

I would love Guerlain Gems and Chanel Dragon to return, though. They’re so good.

L’Oréal Color Riche Balm in 945—Sundays by the Seine, and/or MAC’s Fashion Flower line, particularly for the Glaze lipstick in Summer Shower (both are the same sheer shade of a mint-like green that gives the lips a lovely light “pink” nude look). Those shades are so hard to find! Bite currently has one among their watercolor set, but it’s only .05fl oz.’s & not sold separately :-/
I heart repromotes 😀

Sephoras pantone color of the year palette in Marsala. I wasn’t able to get it when it was released and I’m still bummed about it. Also Mac Kelly Osbourne collection for the same reason. Nothing haunts you like the stuff you didn’t buy…

I agree on you with the Marsala palette! 2015 isn’t near being over, I don’t know why they had to pull it off the shelves so quickly!

I know!!! I was just looking for this palette this weekend, and was totally bummed to find out it was gone. Hopefully they’ll bring it back in the fall, when marsala will be a good color to wear???

Not LE, but it got discontinued: Avon’s Anew lipstick in Modest Mauve 🙁 I guess I’ll just have to get an expensive dupe from MAC.

Omg yes I have this and it’s my favorite highlighter! I’d like for them to repromote this again and Whisper of Guilt which i never got unfortunately.

I mentioned Whisper of Guilt because Bobbi Bronze glow is very similar to MAC’s Superb which is another great Extra Dimension highlighter I wish they would bring back

I have MSF in Petticoat, and I do adore it!! There’s been nothing they have released like it since. I have hit pan on it, so I use it very rarely now. But I used to wear it all the time! I keep my fingers crossed for a repromote.

Oh, my – I could write a list pages long! Not surprising, since I suggested the question! But to keep it to the bare minimum, first off would be MAC Jardin Aires pigment (I’m almost out of my little vial). Then Moth Brown eyeshadow and the whole collection of Mega Metal shadows (I know a certain well-respected blogger is with me on this one 🙂 ). And that gorgeous Chanel highlighter from a recent collection (it was white with “plumes” on it and might have been called “Les Plumes”). Oh, and MAC Red Necessity and Red Dwarf lipsticks. Funny that most of my choices are MAC!!! (oh, I should probably toss in Dior’s Bonne Etoile 5-pan, for the sake of those who missed it – mine will last me the rest of my life, I’m sure – and also the first Vice Palette from UD, which I stupidly didn’t buy).

Don’t think I don’t make a strong mention of it any time I am face-to-face with MAC’s corporate team either, LOL!

yah – but they probably don’t give a flying fart because they ALL got all the colours and even back ups so they’re all right, while the rest of us pine and languish….(gee, do you think I’m dramatic enough?)

AGREED on Camelia de Plumes. So unique and lovely. I’m hoping one of the new Colour Pop highlighters (maybe Lunch Money or Stole the Show?) is a dupe!

Mac Strobe should be similar, but there are so many liquid highlighters out there now that you should be able to find something comparable.

Guerlain Gems lipstick, MAC Cyndi Lauper lipstick, Benefit Georgia blush (not LE but it has been discontinued), Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation (again not LE but it has been discontinued and the new version is rubbish), MAC Weathered eyeshadow, MAC Naked Paris, Chanel Camelia highlighter. So so so many more!

Oh, the Sephora x Disney collection? I’d be so happy if they made some of those permanent, the formula! The colors! So perfect for a makeup beginner. I’d be happy to see the Cinderella lineup there forever – I’d probably buy duplicates of that palette as gifts for makeup loving friends!

I have never had great experiences with Dior Quints, so even though I loved the colors Bonne Etoile, I didn’t get it because I couldn’t sample it. When I was finally able to read some reviews and got to see it, it was out of stock. I am not going to pay such exorbitant expense to buy one on eBay, so that will always be something I wish I had jumped on.

Me too! I got it both times it came out (Hey, Sailor! & Temperature Rising). I’m almost finished my second one. Sadly, I haven’t been able to find anything close. Yet.

I would love to see UD Dime and MAC Jealousy Wakes. I came onto the cosmetics scene way too late for those. I’m having trouble finding either Milani Silver or L’Oreal HIP Silver Lightning eyeliners. Has anyone found a suitable dupe for Jealousy Wakes? Green with flecks of teal and gold would be right up my alley! I’ve seen it on eBay but I don’t know if I can trust that it’s the real deal.

Chanel SOHO highlighter/blush. The sections are perfect for a smaller duo fibre face brush head. It produces the most beautiful glow on my NC42 complexion but works for universal tones. It has sections of sheer, luminous tones of baby pink, white, a mid-pink and deeper wine. I like that it is sheer so I can lightly layer the luminosity, to create depth on my face.

I use the wine to contour, mid-pink on the on the cheeks, baby pink on the on top of cheekbone and white to highlight everywhere else. I love It, but don’t use it as often as I like because of the LE thing.

It also looks fab on the eyes. *sigh*

Mac Brave New Bronze and I also really loved the pro long wear bronzer from the MAC summer collection that was in the brown packaging can’t remember the name though. And 2 non beauty items are from bath and body works the scent Coco Cabana and the candle Tokyo Petals Iced Sake Cherry Blossom!!!!

Definitely MAC Daddy’s Little Girl lipstick and Glorify EDSF. I’ve been on the hunt for Glorify for years but I don’t want to pay a ridiculous amount for it lol. I also need them to repromote Daddy’s Little Girl because it’s my all time favorite lipstick and I’m down to a nub. I’d stock up on backups in a heartbeat!

OCC’s Butch, Triptych, Fractured and Botanical. More greens!

Sugarpill’s Asteria and Pastelle. I feel like they could use more oranges in their permanent loose eyeshadow collection, and I’m always happy with more pastels.

Illamasqua’s Pink Raindrops. I wish I had never seen in, because now I want it badly!

MAC cosmetics “Golden Lariat” mineralized skin finish from the Wonder Woman collection. It’s amazing and I made the mistake of only purchasing one! The shade in the middle is the perfect finishing powder for my skin tone. I have been trying to find a dupe for that shade since 2011 with no success. If MAC were to re-promote that item, I’d buy at least three right away.

yes – Amber Diamond. I have Rose Diamond and love it but had been planning to get Amber Diamond and POOF – it was gone!

Chanel Notorious. Why they wouldn’t make it permanent, *especially* with contouring being so popular now, is beyond comprehension. Coupled with the fact it was a popular item at the start, *and* it was a unique shade, it would be a smart move for Chanel.

Try NYX Taupe blush. You can get it on Amazon. Not totally as cool, but close
Also look for eyeshadows. Whenever I love a blush on an unusual tone because my skin turns everything pink, so some of my favorite blushes were on the brown/mauve/taupe/peachy brown families, then can sometimes be duped in eyeshadows
My favorite blush for years was a no name brand eye shadow in #215, sometimes called cedar. Another old favorite was a MAC eye shadow called spice. I may have to start searching eyeshadows to replace my beloved Bobbi Brown blush in Bahama brown!

Oh my god, yes, yes, YES!

I know there are dupes, but Chanel not having this perfect shade in the perfect formula be a staple in their lineup is inexcusable. High quality, perfect cool-toned contouring should be THE thing, Chanel Notorious is something I’d love to see in their lineup for years and years!

The highlighter Chanel came out with around the holidays looked so beautiful.i think it was called Camellia la plumes. If I were to splurge on something, that would be it. Also MAC’s stereo rose mineralize skin finish looked amazing.

I’d agree on Chanel Dragon and Sephoras Marsala palette. I would have added the shadows from Mac’s alluring aquatic. But, thankfully, that wish is being granted. I wasn’t into Guerlain Meteorites until just this past year. So all the previous LE , I want ! Lol. The old Urban Decay stuff. I feel like the new shadows are bringing it back . But in my 20’s ( so aging myself here) their makeup was quality, pigmented,wore extremely well..all your friends were jealous if you had UD.

Although MAC is one of my least-used and least-purchased brands, the one product I would give limbs to stock up on is MAC Pearlglide Eyeliner in Wolf. It was part of the holiday collection in 06 or 07. It’s a metallic grey with taupey and green undertones. If I could wear only Wolf for the rest of my life, I’d be fine. It’s my HG, and I did purchase about 15 of them originally. I’m down to 2. When I’m totally out, I don’t know what I’ll do.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 39 La Somptueuse! I need it! There’s no dupe to be found, is there? Why is this beauty discontinued?!! Unforgivable!

Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala demi matte lipstick!
There are no true dupes! I have viewed supposed dupes and swatches of them but nothing I’ve seen even looks remotely like it and the swatches aren’t even reliable! Nothing truly and exactly matches the shade and the way the lipstck itself, performs! I hate when a limited edition eye shadow palette sells out and people who have it want to take your first born child just to get it, i.e. Mac Cinderella eye shadow palette! I missed out and I’m kicking myself every day!
Any Limited Edition makeup always ends up being the VERY BEST of something you know that you will probably never ever get again. ::Sigh::

MAC Nanogold and Remotely Grey. Combined with Coppering they’re my go-to stage eye makeup. I have the last of my Nanogold sort of covered by Reflects Pearl pigment, but it’s not quite the same. And every dupe for Remotely Grey is ALSO discontinued! I know it’s sheer and takes forever to build up, but it creates the most amazing blended shadow effect on my hooded eyes.

I would love Mac pearl sunshine beauty powder, and Mac strawberry blonde lipstick. They have never been promoted a second time like many other Mac products.

The Sephora Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows and UD’s first Vice palette. I missed them both when they came out, and I refuse to pay what people want for them on ebay.

There was a Tokidoki highlighter at Sephora a few years ago. It was one of the $10 Black Friday items. I picked it up on a whim, and I love, love, love it. I don’t even know if the brand exists anymore.

It has to be MAC Smoke and Diamonds eyeshadow or Guerlain Rouge Parade Rouge G lipstick. I love both but if I could only choose one it would be the eyeshadow since Garçonne Rouge G is very similar to Rouge Parade. Those are the only two things coming to mind- the only other ones I can think of are things that were permanent but are now discontinued. Sadly there are too many to list!

I’ve just realized Chanel Jersey is permanent?! So maybe it’s just a matter of finding somewhere that stocks it since the usual places/ sites don’t seem to have it. I’m travelling soon so hopefully I can find it in duty free!

MAC Honey Jasmine blush is my every day go to blush. I hit pan a long time ago, but I’ve started to limit using it because I haven’t found a dupe 🙁

YES YES YES. Every time it shows up on ebay it goes for an obscene amount. I am SO pissed at myself for not picking it up when it came out. 🙁

I really wanted the Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette Version 2.
By the time I found out about it, it was already gone.
Oh the heartache!!!!

I’ve always hoped MAC would rerelease Queen’s Sin lipstick but it’s been 8 years and they still haven’t. I just missed it in 2007 and have always wanted to try it.

I second MAC Daddy’s Little Girl from the Archie collection. But my all-time fave LE lipstick is MAC Quick Sizzle, it’s the perfect blue pink and a great matte. I don’t think it was that popular tho’ so I’m not holding my breath on its rerelease.

MAC the Hello Kitty and Barbie lipsticks and lip glosses. I have only the tiniest bit of one of the Barbie lipsticks left. I love the packaging and the colors.

Chanel Notorious, Guerlain Nacre Pressed Meteorites, NARS Strawberry Fields, Chanel’s Camellia Highlighter, Chanel Dragon, Guerlain Rouge Parade Gloss and Lipstick, and every Chanel nail polish… Seriously, LE stuff always makes me sad. Possibly UD smoked too.

Maybe not re-promoted but kept in the fixed line UD Naked on the Go and maybe more face cases I love those shattered was awesome I am a sucker for purse friendly items like travel palettes and such from low end wet n wild matte eye shadow 8 pan palette.

I don’t tend to pay attention to a products LE status. I do miss Laura Mercier’s Rosewood (I think) lip glace’. Off the top of my head, the only other LE product was a Tom Ford four color summer sand, blues, and green palette that was gone just as I learned of this blog and you wonderful people. I bought one on EBay but based on quality, it was a fake. Live and learn. Glad I don’t live my life like that seller.
Love all the reviews and reasons why bc everyone has different needs, different skin, different ages so all is pertinent. Thank you. Love you all and no more wine tonight.

Chanel hydrasoleil lipstick in Soleil Nuit. I searched for years for this colour, my perfect red, then when I went to repurchase it had been discontinued. I’ve been searching for a dupe ever since 8{

Chantecaille sheer in Jupiter, another perfect shade, discontinued.

I would LOVE to see repromote mac heaux lipstick (in the retro matte formula), tom ford lips & boys lipsticks and lorac mega pro palette.

Oh! And also chanel notorious, mac’s whisper of guilt and superb, mac bareness and after dusk extradimension blushes, all tom ford’s le quads, all the giorgio armani sheer blushes (I know they were reformulated, but I really want some of the old ones), giorgio armani eyes to kill intense eyeshado in 14 (I’m so SAD I didn’t get it), guerlain blush g serie noire, hourglass eyeshadow duos, guerlain parure gold (and also parure extreme) foundation, kat von d ladybird eyeshadow palette (I dind’t buy it relying on some bloggers who said it was permanet but suddenly it was gone), lancome l’extreme mascara, mac’s deep damson pressed pigment, mac’s studded kiss lipstick, all mac’s old msfs (like glissade, by candelight, northern light, new vagas, pleasureflush, shimpagne, adored, lust, scene to be scene), mac’s easy manner, strada and stunner blushes, mac’s 222, 226, 221, 165 brushes.
Sorry I lost tha track lol

My two “mourned” items are all ooooold, long since discontinued. Nonetheless, Body Shop lip balm in Strawberry Chocolate – it was a Valentine’s release for three years running and I did stock up, but I think that was in the late 90s so it’s all long gone, lol. And UD Sin perfume oil, which wasn’t LE but was discontinued 10+ years ago.

MAC Pink Poodle lipstick. I probably have more pink lipstick than I need but I picked this us when they rereleased it with MAC be request and I love it. Also, the first Urban Decay Book of Shadows. Mainly because I have all the other ones. I would also love if MAC brought back their extra dimension blush in at dusk..seriously one of my favorite blushes ever and I only bought one backup.

Late to the party, but MAC Kissable Lipcolours from the Peacocky collection (especially Exxhibitionist, best coral in history of coral which I compare all other corals unfavorably to, and Peacocky because it would fly off the shelves now that eyeshadow colors are big for lips) and the NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette! I missed out on Danmari and I can’t for the life of me understand why they haven’t released a comparably well rounded cheek palette since.

Mac Nude on Board Prolongwear Bronzing Powder! I have not found a dupe and this is my HG bronzer, wish I would have bought back-ups

All of the highlighters known to man, lol. Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Chanel, Laura, wow the list gows on and on.

MAC SPICE lipstick!! I cannot think as to why they wouldn’t make this a permanent lipstick. It’s the most perfect nude I have never found in my life. Also the MAC Malleficent red lipstick, I mean come on! these are evergreen shades!

Estee Lauder go wink wand eyeshadow & blush petals (similar to Guelain meteorites).Both disc. many yrs ago, but still miss them. 🙁

Tke what you have left and bring it to a counter lke MAC where they have a wide variety of eyeshadow shades, I’ll bet there is a dupe in an eyeshadodw color! I”ve used eyeshadows as blushes and contours for years!

Guerlain made a foundation long ago that was perfect for my skin- a cream with a slight shimmer, blended to perfection. Not to heavy, and actually lasted in hot humid FL weather. I cried when I couldn’t find it any longer. Nothing has ever come close- in over 40 years! Yes I’m THAT old. And don’t get me started on MUFE changing out some of the eyeshadows- there was one green that was so perfect, barely used and my wonderful new puppy managed to eat it. Closest I’ve come is Lancôme Splurge, but it doesn’t have the depth or staying power of MUFE…
