Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Reintroduces Discontinued Lip Colors via Exclusive Facebook Campaign

I remember my first blush, it was a mosaic peach shade, purchased at the drugstore for the very high price of $9.99 (that was high way back when). I think it was by Black Opal? I was about 16 at the time and adored it. It was thee perfect shade of gorgeous. Being a teenager and not knowing a ton about makeup I continued to use said blush well into my senior year of high school but one day I proceeded to drop it on the floor. I was devastated to say the least but hey, no worries, head to the drug store, pick up another one, and call it a day. Sadly, after searching and searching I couldn’t find it. So I did a little sleuthing, called the company, and proceeded to learn that it was discontinued. That was my first real discontinued woe. I graduated from high school that year and proceeded to spend the next several of my college years trying to replicate the finish and color of that blush with many, many, many blush purchases.

Sadly, I never did find a shade like it.

Dontcha hate that feeling? I was gutted to say the least and I wonder if someone handed it to be right now if I’d feel it was as wonderful or was it just my youthful makeup dreams?

The good news?

    Rimmel 60 Second nail polish in Mania.

    It was my super love, as Rimmel was my first introduction to *quality* “weird colors” and I wore the shit outta that dark blue/green duochrome. Still haven’t seen another polish like it and despite having three botttles at one point, have none now. 🙁 Makes me sad. It was the only polish I’d ever come close to finishing and the formula was so great. It went on almost perfect in one go (I’m a horrible painter, though), dried quickly, and lasted as well as anything on my chip-prone nails. *sigh* Occasionally I look on ebay for it, but come up empty. Makes me full of sad to see such “normal” colors taking over the Rimmel displays now.

    I feel your blush pain. lol.

    Enough about that jazz…I haven’t tried any of Bobbi Brown’s lipstick, but this campaign idea is AWESOME!!! More companies should institute it!!! I won’t vote, since I’ve not tried any of them and don’t wanna mess with the results of the people who actually want to see certain colors make a comeback.

    Did you vote? Will you?

    My first discontinued love (I didn’t know companies discontinued items at the time) was a L”Oreal lipstick in Rose Diablo. Nice to see a company bring back something for their customers!

    • Violet

      L’Oreal not only discontinued that Diablo Rose lip color, they discontinued the nail polish also. I quit getting compliments on both of them at the same time. Talk about devastation.

    L’Oreal here too, Sheer Mauve Beam. My perfect everyday color, it was an exact match for the color of my lips but with a subtle gold shimmer. Just tried to buy some listed on Amazon but what I received was this awful red/coral color instead!
