The Lipstick League - week of 1.19.15

The Lipstick League Question of the Week: 

Name a beauty item that was discontinued that you wish would come back, 
even if it was only for a limited time.

G's answer: I could give you dozens (and dozens) of discontinued beauty products that I would love to see come back, even if for a limited time. But since the question is to name a (as in one) beauty item, I'm going to have to go with the one that is most special to me, on a personal level. And that would be a vintage lip gloss from Avon called the Berry Nice Lip Gloss Compact, which was shaped like an actual strawberry (but honestly, I would want every product on this page to come back, if possible, because I coveted them all!). I know I could probably find a Berry Nice Lip Gloss Compact on eBay and pay way too much for it, but I would love to own a "fresh" one that I could use, and taste and smell, again. It would bring me right back to childhood in the best way possible.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Phyrra - My friend Eugenia is awesome and I love her blog and videos. I wanted to share her Top 10 Beauty Products of 2014 because I adore many of her choices!


  1. MAC's Whisper of Guilt...hands down...I would buy 2 or 3!

  2. MAC lipstick in Rocker even though I have since boycotted the brand.

  3. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I would love it if Revlon would bring back its matte In the Red lipstick. It was a great shade of red, not too bright, leaning brick red, and it looked good with just a light swipe or a full-on application. They have all the other mattes, it seems, except this one. And I've never found a perfect dupe, but I did find one on amazon, so I have a spare to get me through to the time Revlon will come back to its senses and re-release this one!

  4. Avon Wash Off Waterproof Mascara in NAVY

  5. Maybelline mascaras: Lash Stylist and Wonder Curl! waterproof, please.

    1. Oh yes, I too loved Lash Stylist in wp!

  6. This isn't exactly a beauty product, but it would be nice if they brought back the really ornate compacts of the 1950s.

  7. I forgot the name G but it was those lip gloss u and I loved back in the day that came in the long tins! I totally loved those wish they would bring them back. Also Revlon street wear collection all the colors has true color payoff
