Which Makeup and/or Beauty Products Will You Be Heartbroken to Finish?

Published in: Just For Fun

mac naked honey hand and body cream



I thought my tube of MAC Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream (from 2009’s Naked Honey collection) had finally given up the ghost, aka “gone on to greener pastures,” but it looks like there are at least a few precious drops left inside.

I just love this stuff… 🙂

Love how super moisturizing it is, love the honeysuckle and freesia scent it leaves on my skin, love the pattern on the tube.

MAC’s Creations Hue fragrance in Naked Honey, also from the Naked Honey release, has almost the same scent, so I’ll be able to get my fix for it there, but I don’t find the fragrance anywhere near as satisfying as the cream.

To make my tube last as long as possible, I started rationing it when the tube got down near empty, allowing myself a few drops for my hands on Friday afternoons if/when I finished everything on my to-do list. At the rate I’m going, with what I think hope is still left in the tube, I might be able to stretch it out till June (fingers crossed!).

How about you and your collection? Which makeup and/or beauty products will you be heartbroken to finish?

    I will be so sad when I finally finish Chanel Hydrabase lipstick in Coco Pink. I’ve been wearing it since I was 16! Ten years later, I’m down to half a tube left, and the only way to get another is to pay $100 on eBay! (Literally, one hundred clams for a tube of discontinued Chanel goodness. I wasn’t the only one who loved it!) You know those products that make you feel really good and happy when you wear them, the ones that give you a little extra sparkle just because they’ve become so personal to you? Coco Pink was it! I’ve tried lots of other blue-based, bright orchidy, lilacy pinks and none comes close.

      Have you tried sending a sample to Three Custom Color? Maybe they can duplicate it well enough. Granted, it wouldn’t be the same tube, but the color will be the same!

    For sure my John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Spray. I have about 2 uses left and I’m panicking! I know there are other “surf” sprays out there, but nothing will be able to match that heavenly coconut scent!

    • AnotherSteph says:

      Yes Marisa! You know I called John Frieda when they discontinued Ocean Waves and they said it was a seasonal product and people didn’t wear their hair wavy all year long. What?? I responded by saying that people certainly did, including myself. And then, of course, right after that lots more people started wearing their hair wavy and tons of products hit the market. None as good! Sigh….I had to throw the rest of mine away years ago b/c the scent had turned. Thanks for reminding me of this…

    • Audrey says:

      Mine would also be a John Frieda product – their red Color Glaze! I used to use it to bring out the natural red highlights in my hair. I have one bottle left, and I’m so disappointed that they discontinued it without warning. I have yet to find anything like it!

    • Antonia says:

      Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is amazing for beachy waves. Really, nothing can top it! I used the Frieda before being introduced to B&B! 🙂

      • AnotherSteph says:

        Antonia, I know B&B works on a lot of people but unfortunately, it really dried my hair out even used sparingly. Did anything else work for you? I have tried pretty much everything, high-end to low-end.

  4. For me… the Naked Honey Salve…. My dry winter skin LOVED it! So sad…

  5. Marieke says:

    I guess that’ll be my Stay In Place Eyepencil (in Zero, black) from Estee Lauder.
    I’m on a tight budget so that’s one pricey pencil for me, but it works so good and stays in place so well 😉

  6. Megan says:

    My Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and my Stila Oasis Eyeshadow. (Though I don’t think I’ll be too heartbroken with that shadow since I just bought two more extra! Lol. 🙂 )

  7. SDpfeiffy says:

    MAC beauty powder in Peaceful. My pan has only about an eighth of an inch remaining around the rim and I haven’t found a dupe yet. Last summer it became my go to finishing touch and I am desperate to find something for this summer.

  8. Stèphanie says:

    My Coralista! lipgloss from Catrice. The most perfect coral color.. and my Rose Gold blush from Sleek. Sleek is not available right here and it takes a long time to get one.

    The old Dior Addict lipstick in Rose Bustier. It was LE with the lace collection in 2010, and there has been no dupe yet… Such a pretty, radiant, soft pink! Sniff.

  10. Anitacska says:

    Mac Volcanic Ash Exfoliator and Thermal Mask. Luckily I have a good few of each left in my cupboard (I managed to buy 3 VAEs in a CCO in Florida last year!).

    Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows IIIi. The BEST “party” makeup

  12. Maggie says:

    Karen, if you get the chance you should call the CCO at Gilroy Premium Outlets and see if they have any of the Naked Honey cream. I was just in there a week or so ago and they had tons of Naked Honey stuff still.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Urban decay 24/7 liner in Whiskey..it’s my favorite!

  14. For me MAC Lollipop Lovin for sure! xoxo

    I was upset when Bath and Body Works discontinued their Rain Kissed Leaves scent. I wear Country Chic a lot now, but it’s not quite the same.

    For those who like the John Frieda Color Glazes, Ulta is now making their own glazes for red, brunette, and blonde hair, as well as a shampoo and conditioner line for red, brunette, and blonde hair. I too used the John Frieda glaze in red, and I was able to make new red hair color last for 4 months with it without significant fading (just root regrowth, and the glaze helped mask that). The Ulta glaze is virtually the same but may take 2 or 3 uses before you will notice a difference. I just bought it last week, and it seems to be a good replacement for John Frieda red glaze. It costs 10 bucks in Ulta stores, and you can find it near the John Frieda stuff. John Frieda’s clear glaze is also still around, and does work well to help preserve color.

    I would be upset if some of my fave UD 24/7 pencils were discontinued, like the Bourbon one. Those pencils last all day and there are few that compare!

    M.A.C offshoot lipstick and Benefit High Beam as it is discontinued here in France !

  17. Caitlin says:

    This company called Blue Q made a body splash called ‘Miso Pretty’. It has a really light, fresh roses and peony scent and I’ve worn it forever. Sadly, company discontinued it and I’m down to my last bottle. Sniff 🙁

    I don’t have enough money to enroll in a professional beauty school yet. Can someone please inbox me pictoral tips, guidelines or even lecture notes on professional makeup. I wouldn’t mind pictures too. I really have a passion 4 makeup and want to reach my goal

  19. Barbara says:

    Naked Honey fragrance!

  20. I will be incredibly sad when my MAC Viva Glam Cyndi runs out 🙁

  21. Ana says:

    Mac Viva Glam Gaga!

  22. Katalin says:

    Oh no! My favorite cream is “Pacifica” Body Butter. I love the smell and the texture. But I use it every day, so it’s going pretty fast. Also they don’t test on animals, what is very important for me.

  23. Emily says:

    MAC Nubile Paint Pot…I’m a sucker for neutrals and I love paint pots.

  24. Anne says:

    Any of the Naked Honey creams/fragrances. I had both fragrances and blew through them so quickly but kept the bottles because they still retain a small whiff of the fragrance. Right now I’ll be sad to finish peaceful patchouli scented body products because they aren’t available in Canada anymore.

  25. There’s about one swipe left in a pot of Kiehl’s moisturizer!

  26. Alison says:

    Hi, Karen!

    I was at my CCO today and they have the Naked Honey Cream. I normally don’t offer things like this to complete strangers, but if you’d like me to send you one I can, just email me. Then you can savor it a little longer. 🙂 Thanks for all your reviews and posts! 🙂

    it would kill me to realize suddenly dat my foundations are finished.
