Yup, my favorite nail color, MAC Venus, was discontinued. I get compliments on it all the time ... even from the people at the MAC counter But I get it on eBay. I'll be very sad when I can't get it there anymore ...

I rarely use avon products but they had a lip gloss called sheer nourishment shimmering lip gloss.......best cheap lip gloss ever. It had tiny sparkles in it (i normally hate sparkles as most companies are heavy handed with the sparkles) and it really did make your lips look like they were shimmering. It also was a great moisturizer.

lipgloss&cigs - thats great news!! from what i understood it was that EL wasnt covering costs and had to sell themselves to another company.. at first they pulled out of a lot of places and some retailers didn't bother to get relicensed with them.. hopefully i can find the mask! thx soo much for the tip!!

Maybelline diamonds lipgloss in bright orange.. Oh how I miss you... I don't know why, but I'm a sucker for orange makeup.

I don't like lipglasses, I think they're waaaaay too thick and sticky. Which is a pity, because they really do have some nice colors.

MAC Mineralized Skinfinishes. The.Perfect.Glow.

Though rumor has it they're bringing them back this summer. MAC always gets me with the limited edition stuff. Always.

There was this powder foundation stick that L'Oreal did a few yrs ago - it was like a silver tube and it was such a good foundation considering it's budget! I used to have to go to Duane Reade in NYC to get it when they discontinued it in the UK. Now, I don't even think L'Oreal in the US has it anymore....

Quirky, there's a couple places that do custom lipcolor & can match it for you ... Prescriptives does this in limited locations, Three Custom Lip Colors (I think) is another ... and some magazine, maybe Allure, sent someone to several different places to custom match a favorite lipstick with no label, and they showed the results ... I want to say Prescriptives was the best ... I think this was within the past 6 months.
