Discontinued Beauty Products Detail
Perhaps one of the most frustrating things about being a consumer in today’s beauty world is the constant discontinuation of products. Companies are always striving to stay on top of the trends, and it almost seems that sometimes they are trying to discourage people from becoming loyal to one specific product. Sure, part of the reason why we love beauty products is that there is always something new and exciting popping up on the shelves. But for those of us that have had a favorite product discontinued, we realize that the new and shiny stuff comes with a price. The whole “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra just doesn’t seem to ring true in the cosmetics industry these days.
I am one of the lucky ones that always seem to fall in love with products that are doomed from the start. If it’s limited edition, hard to find or extremely unique, I will develop a need for that specific item. Luckily, the exception for me seems to be makeup; any makeup products that I have fallen in love with seem to stick around for awhile. However, I swear to all that is holy, if MAC discontinues the Painterly Paint Pot or Shale eyeshadow, I will boycott them for the rest of my life. Anyways, it is seriously heartbreaking when I go into a store and find that the object of my desire doesn’t even exist anymore! When I recently discovered that my all-time favorite conditioner was discontinued (I will discuss this in a bit), I almost cried. It took me so long to find a conditioner that was the perfect combination of moisture and protein, had the perfect scent that would linger in my hair forever and left me tangle free. Of course, I scoured every store in the area and ended up with about 15 bottles of it. I just used up my last bit a few weeks ago, and it was the end of an era.
