Almay used to make a lovely gel blush in a tube. I found one in a bin of d/c items at Ulta, so I'm good for another couple of months. After that, I'm on the hunt again.

Yep. Physician's Formula Pearls Of Perfection multicolored bronzer beads that squirted out of the little bottle. I wore that for years. I also miss Wet n Wild's crazy lipstick colors they had when I was a kid. I would love to try them now. I know, I'm weird. I also haven't seen the perfume called Tribe for years either.

I loved "Moon Drops" perfume by Revlon, popular but short-lived in the 70's.

Avon discontinued many lipstick shades that I was partial to, along with a few scents.

Was sad when Fendi fragrance was discontinued (hopefully it will be in the Vermont website).

Bonne Bell sold a 'face glow' for many years ~ it was a transparent red gel that came in a tube, and suddenly it was gone a few years ago.

some products discontinued as newer colors/shades introduced... even if a lipstick or fragrance is popular and a good seller, companies too frequently stop making them

yet some products have existed for years: for instance, Revlon nail polish "Cherries in the Snow" has been around since the mid-1950's!!

@ Osito, Bluesmama regarding the fragrances Fendi, MoonDrops, and Tribe...

i have seen these for sale on ebay... if you do wish to buy there, make sure they are unopened or "new in bottle"... to ensure the fragrance is pretty much intact and not evaporated/rancid. i've purchased lots of discontinued/vintage fragrances there and been quite pleased

All the time...

Especially with brown hair dyes.

Missing:
- multiple neutral brown hair dyes
- old paul mitchell - I swear they changed the formula on these shampoos
- revlon 3 color + wax brown kit
- limited edition nail polish colors
- avon champagne shadow - formula changed and its a glitter attack - dislike

Also Revlon's Fire and Ice -- both shades in polish and lipsticks
