Found the Needle ( Lipstick Shade discontinued ) in the Haystack

[ Edited ]

Had posted a few months ago about not being able to find a match for my lipstick which Rimmel had discontinued a few years ago.  My stash was dwindling down to a few.

 

Had been searching for years for anything close to it....to no avail.  The color was wonderful for my complexion.  Received a lot of compliments, even from the makeup specialists.

 

Someone on this board ( thought I had taken a screen shot of her post ) recommended Three Custom Color Specialists as the place to go for customized makeup dupes.  Well, in desperation, I convinced myself that $70 plus shipping for 2 tubes was not bad.  If I liked it, then future refills were less.

 

just got back from the weekend and in the mailbox was a package with the 2 tubes.  MATCH ! ! !  Alleluia !

 

Note: if they already had matched a lipstick shade in their inventory, the price is less.  You can check their website.  My color: Rimmel #276 " Kasbah "

I am glad you found your match for Kasbah.  I remember that color well.  I also liked Rimmel's Drop of Sherry which had more rose color in it.  It looked good on me.  Those were good lipsticks.  very moist and a slight pleasant scent.

@jlkz  That's great!  In addition to the color being spot on is the consistency the same?

I'm in your boat!!!  Rimmel discontinued the lipstick I loved (#310 Back to Fuchsia) and  had bought  for years.  I searched every drugstore, walmart, target, fred's, amazon, ebay, etc. I came across to accumulate as many as I could.  I dread the day that I run out,  but because of you at least I will have a source to continue getting the unique shade that is perfect for my hair, eyes, skin tone, etc.  THANK YOU FOR THIS INFORMATION!!!!

I bought every last tube of my favorite lipstick as well, from every online source I could think of....rationing it, then covid hit and now I haven't used any for months! Wonder if I'll ever use them now 😥.
