What lipstick do you think you'll keep using until it's discontinued?

UD Rebel lipstick. It was limited edition to begin with, but I had two or three tubes that I bought and then Urban Decay PR sent me five or six more when they heard it was my favorite, so I’ll be wearing that until it goes rancid, LOL. It’s just such a perfect shade of mauve-pink with a lil’ pearl–luminous, comfortable, pigmented, and goes with everything.

TOO LATE….it was MAC Craving. I cannot believe they discontinued it (and a few other wonderful shades from the Amplified Cream formula). I’m glad I’ve got some backups (I’ll probably keep using them even AFTER they go rancid!) and I’m at a loss as to what I’ll do after that!

I really regret throwing out my UD firebird before getting a replacement. There’s an online company you can send colors into and they will customize color to match lipstick

Three Custom Color. They do a great job! They also do eye shadow, blush, and other things. I’ve had them match a lipstick and an eyeshadow duo.

Sephora Collection Rouge Lacquer Long-Lasting Lipstick in Squad Goals and Riot Girl, Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Fig, and Black Moon Cosmetics Liquid to Matte in Ashes and Metallic in Castle.
Actually, make that all my Black Moon Cosmetics liquid lipsticks.

I have two partial tubes and one or two full tubes of the DC’d UD Sheer Rapture left, and I will use up every bit of those, as it’s my perfect MLBB shade.

It seems like most of my favorites already have been discontinued the last few years, or have been reformulated to be vegan and/or “clean,” and aren’t really the same shade any more. 😭

Thankfully, I did get backups for a few that already been DC’d: UD Catfight, MAC Royally Riotous, etc. Unfortunately, there are others that have been unceremoniously and very quietly DC’d that are favorite HG’s for me that I wasn’t able to get backups of because of the reasons I stated, but I will STILL use them up anyway because I love how they look and feel on me: PML’s She’s Heaven and Strangé, and UD Broken and Violate.

hmm, I feel like this would mess with the chemistry of the lipstick. I wonder if it would be better to keep it in a dark cool place that doesn’t get a lot of moisture or sunlight and keep it well sealed. I’ve heard cream products degrade faster than dry products. I’ve had lipsticks expire and I can tell bc they start to smell like play-doh and they get grainy and lumpy; expired eyeshadow powder just won’t have any pigment or payoff.

YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Rouge Rose. After twenty years it’s still my favourite colour and I don’t know how many tubes I’ve bought. Because so many of my other favourites have been discontinued (Uslu Airlines BIR, PML Luxetrance Psycho Candy, Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Strawberry Girl, Bobby Brown Artstick and Rich Lip Color in several bold shades) I hope, this shade will continue to be produced.

Dior Stellar Shine in Sideral (612). It’s a sparkly plummy brown. It’s DC but I’m hoping they bring it back with the next reformulation. Also UD Sheer Rapture, UD Firebird, UD Jilted, Lancôme Color Design Lipstick in Fashion Icon, PML Rose Quartz lip balm (I love it on me so much but rarely use it because I am hoarding it).
