Get Them Before They’re Gone: Drugstore Products On Their Way Out (Part 2)

Sadly it’s that time again – time to say farewell to some products you may or may not have loved. One of the worst parts about the cosmetic industry is product turnover. Every year, cosmetic brands discontinue products to make room for new launches. I wanted to share some products that are currently being cleared out! Keep your eye out for sales on these items, and get them before they’re gone! (You can read part 1 here!)

Products can be cleared out for a number of reasons, such as a whole line being discontinued, only certain shades being discontinued, new packaging, etc. Some of these products may not be fully discontinued, but these items are all on “clear out” or “phase out” status at the drugstore. 

L’Oreal La Coleur Infallible Eyeshadows: fear not! These eyeshadows won’t all be disappearing, just certain shades are discontinued to make room for new shade releases! The shades that are being cleared out include: Permanent Khaki, Sassy Marshmallow, Goldmine, Eternal Black, Bronze Divine, All Night Blue. 

L’Oreal Color Riche Anti Aging Serum Lipstick: So far, it seems that every shade is currently on clear out. Unfortunately that usually means they are discontinued! If you like these lipsticks, I definitely suggest stocking up while you can!

L’Oreal Color Riche Extra Ordinaire Gloss: So far it’s unclear as to whether all shades are being discontinued, but the shades definitely on clear out are: Fuschia Orchestra, Ruby Opera, Scarlet Concerto. 

Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze Blush Stick:  currently, it appears that all shades are on clear out! This isn’t really surprising, since these never sold very well. I personally didn’t find the colour payoff or lasting power to be good with these products.

Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Touch FoundationIt’s not clear yet whether they are being permanently discontinued or repackaged, but all shades are currently on clear out. These also didn’t sell too well, so it wouldn’t be surprising if they were discontinued!

Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Studio Eyeshadow Trio: I heard a rumour that Maybelline is working on revamping their whole eyeshadow range, especially with the success of their new palettes. Currently, mostly all shades of the Expert Wear eyeshadow trios appear to be being discontinued.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick: these are some of my favourite drugstore lipsticks, so I’m so happy that not all shades are being discontinued. Some shades are though, including: Let Me Pink, Vibrant Mandarin, and Hot Plum. 

Maybelline Color ElixirI really liked these glosses, so I’m definitely sad to see them go. It looks like all shades are being cleared out, so I highly suggest stocking up while you can!

Covergirl Outlast All Day Lip Colour: I’m not sure if the whole range is being discontinued – which would be surprising since they have so many shades! The colours for sure on clear out are: Tickled Pink, Red Cashmere, Fuchsia Forever, Ultraviolet.

    I can’t find the Loreal Infnallible shadows where I live anymore sadly. Last year they already were clearing them out and I didn’t know that they wouldn’t be carring them anymore. I never got to try them. I should’ve bought them when they were on sale here. I wish they would bring them back.

      Oh no really?? As far as I know here in Canada they aren’t being discontinued – there are supposed to be new colors launching!
