MAC’s Goodbyes for 2012

As many of you may know, I started off early in my career as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. Since I am now located in Kuwait, I rely heavily on ordering a lot of my makeup online now (cosmetics in Kuwait are very expensive!) For those of you that also shop on their website,, you’d know that they have a section called “Goodbyes”; a portion of the site that shows you products that will soon be discontinued. Recently I stumbled upon the Goodbye section and was shocked to see how many products they are doing away with, shocked! Many of which included foundation shades that specifically cater to women of color. Here are just a few of the products they have decided to get rid of, some of which are my favorite’s of all time!


Revealing Lipglass (My absolute favorite nude lipgloss for women of color!)

Bisque Eyeshadow (Probably one of their best brow bone highlights for women of color, some of their others come off too white, or too frosty on our complexions)

Hepcat Eyeshadow (A beautiful jewel-toned mauve)

Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 (shades which range from NC55-NW55)

Studio Moisture Tint in Deep Dark

The entire line of Studio Sculpt Concealers

It’s no secret that MAC is commonly known for discontinuing popular products only to re-release them later on. Something I am not too pleased about, especially since now these products are going bye-bye, the only way you will probably be able to find them is on sights like Amazon or Ebay, where sellers often hike up the prices. So not fair! How do you guys feel about the things MAC is discontinuing? What are some of your favorites?

    There is an outlet store (Cosmetic Company Store) here in the US that sells a lot of MAC’s discontinued items. I’m not sure if they have a website, but the store can be found in Outlet Malls. They also carry: Bobbi Brown, Stila, Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Prescriptives. I hope this helps! :-)

    I am seriously disappointed. They come out with collections too often, and they are not always great. Prices are high unless u have the pro card. And then when they discontinue products…(popular ones at that) they won’t even lower the price. And to hear a lot of the items cater to us WOC…UNACCEPTABLE!!!

    Is it the mineralized POWDER that is being discontinued? Because when I checked it out on the site, it mentioned it being a creamy foundation :S

    With the eyeshadows, is it just the pro refill pans that are going or are they going away all together?

    It saddens me that MAC is doing away with shades that caters more so toward women of color. MAC was the first cosmetic company that I purchased from when I first started wearing make-up about five years ago, and I hate that some of the products that they are being discontinued are also some of the same products that I have been using forever. I guess I need to stock up on Revealing Lipglass while I still can.

    I don’t know what I’m going to do without my studio sculpt concealer. I have a lot of dark spots and the only concealer that covers it is the studio sculpt. Can anyone help me find someting similar . Please! My husband even notices the difference in my face between the studio sculpt and the studio finish concealer.
