To Be Discontinued
I can't let Teem get all the attention!
If I could do anything today, it would be to bitchslap the fool at L'Oreal Paris USA that decided that reformulating the Quick Stick foundation was a good idea. Because it's not! The new version - Ideal Balance something or other - is horrible! I tried it on my hand and it made me itch!
So NOW, I have to travel around to the other two CVS drugstores in the area and see if I can find the old, now discontinued formula in Natural Beige. I have to find it at CVS for two reasons. One, I need to return this GREATLY INFERIOR VERSION that I just bought this afternoon. Two, CVS is having a sale right now where you get a free L'Oreal blush with purchase of a foundation. And since I need to stock up, I might as well get free stuff while I'm at it.
But I'm still angry! *RAGE*
You know what this reminds me of? When Freeman discontinued my beloved Raspberry Almond facial scrub and reformulated it in a totally disgusting manner. Bastards.
What things that you love have been discontinued?

Yeah, stupid evil Maybelline discontinued the only awesome concealer I've ever been able to find - Great Wear. And replaced it with... well, I don't even remember because as soon as Great Wear went away, so did my attention to Maybelline. TAKE THAT!
But now that I've found me L'Oreal Airwear Brightener, things are shaping up nicely. *hugs L'Oreal*
You're hugging the devil, Teem.
I do not envy your struggles for concealer perfection. Prescriptives MatchStick in Warm Cream, used over Stila liquid foundation.
Yeah, well, I always said I'd sell my soul to the devil for a good concealer.
Things I love that have been discontinued? Bath & Body Works - "Cool Citrus Basil". "Buffy The Vampire Slayer". :-(
URGH! Don't get me started on B&BW. Cool Citrus Basil and Honeysuckle were my favorite scents. *stabs B&BW*
TVJ, was Cool Citrus Basil the one I sent you? And yeah, Buffy. *sniff*
ALSO, the little mini-sized snack cake mixes that included a wee little packet of frosting, along with a plastic pan in which you could microwave the cake batter.
Don't talk to me about discontinued. I just ordered a whole new bottle of L'Artisan Parfumeur perfume from Bergdorf's in NYC because I found out they were discontinuing my scent.
That's probably the most insane cosmetic moment I've ever had.
Yes, Heewig .. Cool Citrus Basil was the one you sent me - you saved me from a potentially postal moment at the mall. (ThankYouThankYouThankYou) And I miss the snack cake mix, too! There is a Stir-N-Bake mix out there which is just so-so. ~TVJ~
I cast my vote for the aforementioned B&B Works' Herbal Mist, which was my all-time favorite, of which I still have one bottle squirreled away.
I miss Mug Diet Rootbeer. [flips off Pepsi]
Mine is B&BW Honeysuckle, the New Kids as cheesy teen idols, Felicity and the other non butter flavors of Molly McButter.
