Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

It happens to all of us sooner or later: a product we love gets discontinued by the manufacturer. While this may sound like no big deal, it can be devastating if your perfect pink shade of lipstick, the one you've sworn by season after season, disappears off the face of the earth.

Thankfully, Estee Lauder has an expert Gone But Not Forgotten team that will search for your now extinct product, as long as it comes from one of the participating brands. These brands include Estee Lauder, Clinique, Origins, Prescriptives, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Bumble and bumble and others. If you need this service, call the Gone But Not Forgotten folks at (800) 216-7173 and they'll begin the search.

While finding out your beloved product is no longer being manufactured can be difficult, it's also a good reminder to update your look from time to time. We shouldn't use the same products year after year. And, products are discontinued for a reason. So maybe that purple eyeshadow you loved so much in 1997 is no longer appropriate in 2007. Just a thought!
