Lipstick, Can’t find Your Favorite Lipstick Color Anymore. Still Searching for that Perfect Color, 3 tips


Do you have a favorite lipstick color that was discontinued?  Have you been desperately searching for your favorite color, hoping to find it made by another company.

Or are you are still searching for the perfect lipstick color that will make you eyes sparkle and your lips look luscious?  If you are still trying to figure out what lipstick color works for you, read my post, “Lipstick,How to Choose A Flattering Color.”

Over twenty years ago, before I became an image consultant and knew my best lipstick colors, I wasted too much time and money on lipsticks that did not look good on me.

I was ecstatic after I had my colors done by Color 1 and found 3 different lipstick colors that looked fabulous on me.  

I believed I would never have to waste any more time or money searching for those perfect colors.  Then those colors, one by one, were discontinued. 

Fortunately, I was able to go to my Color 1 wallet of colors and find other lipstick colors that were perfect for me.

I now have my fingers crossed that my new favorite lipstick colors will not be discontinued.

Here are 3 tips I have come up with to prepare myself in case my current favorite lipstick colors get discontinued.

 These tips can help you too.


Tip 1: Stock up on your favorite lipstick colors.   I have stocked up on 6 tubes of my favorites and I store them in the refrigerator.

Tip 2: Use a lipstick brush.  By using a retractable lipstick brush, you can use every last drop of lipstick.  You should be able to buy a retractable lip brush at Target or your favorite beauty supply or drug store for a few dollars.

Tip 3: If your favorite color has been discontinued, save a piece and send it to 3 Custom Color Specialists in New York and they will duplicate exactly the color, sheen and texture of your lipstick.  2 tubes costs about $50.  They will duplicate other things also.  I got a shade of eye shadow duplicated and I was pleased with the results.

Here is a link to a few reviews and  more information about 3 Custom Color Specialists.
