Discontinued Products I Love

Why is it that companies are continually discontinuing products that are so great and that we love so much? I never have understood this. While pilfering through my makeup this morning I noticed several items that I find myself continually shifting to the back of my makeup stash, to hoard up and save, simply because I don't want to use it all up because you can no longer find it. I don't know for sure if companies just quit making these products, or if I just can't find them where I live anymore. Either way, I hate when I find something that really works and then poof! it's gone. I thought I would show you a few of these extinct items I am talking about. All of them are drugstore and were relatively cheap, especially the NYC products. NYC is one of the cheapest drugstore brands you can find, but they have had some products that knock it out of the park. Anyways, let's get to it.

Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer

As you can see, when I found a few of these at Big Lots I grabbed every tube I could find! This was such a great concealer - great coverage, doesn't settle into fine lines and wrinkles, doesn't break down through the day, etc. If you follow my blog you probably seen that I also keep a tube of this in my travel makeup bag. Great everyday concealer, too bad it bit the dust :(

NYC Blushable Creme Stick

These creme blushes were great! Went on flawlessly, great staying power, beautiful color selection. I have to say, I like these almost as much as my luxe 'The Multiple' by Nars. I only have 3 of these left, two of which are still shrink wrapped. I don't see these lasting super long, so I might as well use them up. (Bad as I hate to).

I don't think I have to say much about these, I think everyone who loves makeup and ever tried them knows their quality. Notice my 'dupe' stickers? Is anybody else obsessed with labeling their drugstore dupes?

NYC Lip Sliders "Sugar Collection" Lip Balms

What great lip balms these are! Only negative was having to stick your finger in the tin to get the product, but that doesn't really bother me. Feels great on the lips with a nice tint of color. NYC this is the 2nd product I have mentioned from you....am I noticing a pattern???

Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer

A concealer infused with Olay Regenerist Serum, this works great to cover undereye circles while offering a little moisture. It's not an extremely moisturizing concealer, but it does really good at not settling into fine lines and wrinkles and gives great coverage. Sadly, this is another product that is no more. I use this sparingly, trying to make it last as long as I can.

Hope you enjoyed guys! Let me know what products you love that you can't find anymore. The only thing I worry about is if you mention something I will be tempted to go out and try to find it, and will end up paying an arm and a leg on Amazon to try it, lol. But anyways, hope you have a GREAT Thanksgiving and come back soon!
