Don't you just hate it....

Don't you just hate it when you find a product that you fall in love with, then realize that it was released months,maybe even years ago, and now you don't know where to find it!?
Well that is me.. a lot.
I know that often you can find the product (thanks to the internet) but what about when you can't!? Or what about when the product isn't in the condition you want it!? OR, what about if it is SO over priced now that it is after the fact.. that you refuse to pay that much!?
Well that is the predicament I am in!
So recently, these past few years, I have gotten into make-up.
Don't get me wrong.. I have always been a fan, however I have never been too into purchasing exrta products just for fun.
However, I have been trying to expand my make-up look and realized that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE natural eye make-up! Now granted, I realize that any eye make-up isn't THAT natural, however by using some browns, coppers and golds, I can make my eyes look bluer and appear as if I don't have a TON of make-up/ more natural then say a bright blue shadow..
Well.. I was looking into NARS and found the "best palette"
Yes.. the name actually describes how I feel-- it LOOKS like the best!
Well because the UD Naked Palette is simply unattainable right now (unless you want to pay an at least 200% mark up--) I have been looking for a nice neutral palette.
I LOVE Mac, Urban Decay, and Nars! For this reason, when I ran into this lovely palette from the 2008 collection--

I fell in love! Perfection--
However, ebay doesn't have them! I am going to do further research, however I doubt I will have any luck.
Do you all have any websites where you can buy discontinued products, new??

What kinds of products are you on the hunt for and just cannot find!?


  1. aw I know what you mean - haha thanks to you I have been waiting for that Naked palette too! I can't get a lot of products here because they won't ship to Canada. I love Derma Doctor skin care products and always stock up when I go to the USA.

  2. yesi totally hate it when that happens xxxxx

  3. Just started following, are you in D.C. too?

  4. i love natural eye makeup... brown smokey eye is so gorgeous! :) i am looking for a new perfume... and really want a nice new scent but i cant find one!! what do you use? or any recommendations? LOVE the blog! great post! x

  5. @Miranda -- I live in Washington state :) I have always wanted to visit D.C. though

    @Eleanor -- I actually am using a perfume from Victoria's Secret. It is in a pink, tall, rectangular bottle that has cheetah print all over it! The design initially attracted me, but once I smelled it I knew I had to have it! I tried looking on the website, but I couldn't find it :l
    However I have been eyeing the Michael Korrs "Very Hollywood" perfume- it smells amazing also!
    You should let me know what you end up with! :)
