OMG Yes I feel your pain!!  Usually the internet is good at finding duplicate beuaty products.  I would try that out.

My favorite revlon lipcolor was discontinued.  I wore it everyday.  It was perfect and creamy and $7.  I went into sephora hoping to find the closest one possible in their brand (because I am clueless when doing it myself so I asked for help)  And paid $34 for the new one =(

This will sound odd – but everytime I find a gas station I like that becomes my regular one, they end up shutting down! Seriously – 6 in the last 4 years……if it’s my fault these places are shutting down, I feel terrible. And now I have to drive across town to get gas!

@MsGinkgo:  Are they discontinuing the shade all together, or could they just be renaming/repackaging the color?

A face lotion I used to use (I forget the brand) was discontinued a few years ago and I still miss it. Same with a lip gloss by Benefit

One of my favorite concealers was discontinued and I also just found out one of my favorite nail polish colors is also discontinued. It sucks.

@MsGinkgo:  If they really have discontinued your color, I am sorry for your loss! #firstworldproblemsforsure

I hate when stuff like this happens 🙁 They discontinued my FI’s favourite body spray stuff in 2009 and I LOVED the smell. We’ve never found anything as good. I found some on Ebay though and was able to get him some for Christmas. Definitely check Ebay! Maybe you can stock up so that you don’t have to try to find a new colour until after your wedding.

My perfect bra was discontinued. I was able to call the company and buy 4 of them, but I’ve been on a bra hunt for the past 10 years.

Benefit and Clinique have both discontinued lipstick shades that were perfect. 

It makes me crazy!!!!!

i don’t know how long they last but can you buy a few on amazon until you find a new shade?

is the store not carrying it or the manufacturer not making it?  if the store is not carrying anymore, contact the manufacturer.

my mom did this with something a long time ago, the grocery store stopped carrying the item and it turned out she could purchase by the case if she wanted it.

The only deoderant that ever worked for me was discounted like 4 years ago.  I was buying it off of ebay for a couple of years until I bought all of the remaining ones in the world….

🙁  It sucks when they do that!
