Default Discontinued Products That You Miss

For me:

Chanel Ruby lipstick

There was also a cosmetics line called Clarion that had an awesome red lipstick called Scarlet. The whole brand has disappeared, sadly.

Is there anything that you loved that has been taken off the market or "revamped"?

EL - Fresh Air Makeup Base. They have a few colors left, but not the one I wore. I swear my skin looked like velvet when I wore it.

the Body Shop used to make these fat eye colour pencils that went on beautifully and there was an "Oyster" shade that i ADORED!

when i was a teenager, Max Factor had an upscale line called "Geminesse" and the perfume from that line was wonderful.

I happened to find the absolute perfect shade of red for me and then it was discontinued. Vixen by Revlon

Revlon trotts out Vixen every few years - usually when the darker colors come back around again.

I miss Citreshine's Miracle Cream leave in conditioner and Salon Selectives Loosely Defined. Also, Vidal Sassoon had a wonderful shampoo and conditioner for dry hair. Sniff.

Is this the formula that had a color called Country Beige?

CG is right. I just bought a bottle of Vixen nail polish this season, so you might try looking for the lipstick, maybe it's out this year too.

Don't know, the only shade I remember is the one I wore, and that was Nutbrown Beige.

Edited because I really need to read what I write before I post.

Oil of Olay, Oil-free formula.

I'm now using the Sensitive skin formula, but it's not the same.

All I miss is the perfume Black Pearls. Oh, and the old Finesse formulas.

The Body Shop used to have this really mild rice scrub - I haven't seen it in ages. And it looks like Clinique has discontinued their tissue-off moisture mask - and they long ago discontinued their moisturizing face scrub. Garden Botanika used to have this SERIOUS clay clensing mask. I've never used anything that thorough but since their stores closed, it looks like they've phased out a lot of their skincare (they're only online and catalog now).

Almay had a face lotion that I used for years and years until they discontinued it about three years ago. I had a heck of a time finding something with similar texture and feel, but hallelujah, I finally did.
