Gone but not Forgotten

Don't you just love it when you find a product that works great and then they discontinue it? For example you find a great foundation, makes your skin look amazing, feel great, and it WORKS only for the company to discontinue it. Eventually they will come out with some thing better, but better is not always as good as the original. The same can definatley be said of moisturizers, lip sticks, or contact lenses.

My favorite compact powder was discontinued and nothing has been as good. Nothing works best with my skin than the Clarifying Compact. I miss it so much! I have tried other compacts and my very oily skin loved it. So, when I ran out I went to the Clinique counter and asked for more, they had none. So, I asked what was close to it I wear powder more than foundation. The girl suggested the Stay Pressed powder. Now,once upon a time I worked for Clinique, and while I knew it was not really the same I still bough it. Did not like it, not enough of what I need. While the Clarifying is supposed to be sheer coverage it really was not. I needed something more buildable and thus the compact is in my drawer by my vanity lost in the depths of eyeshadow. Now, I have a Lancome Dual Finish Fragrance free for my compact and so far so good. Let us hope it sticks around for awhile.

I know there are many people out there with similar stories, and I feel your pain. It just plain sucks.Have you experienced similar problems?

Side note: Clinique does have a discontinued part on their webpage called gone not forgotten.Good luck!
