Annoyingly this happened to one of my favourite lipsticks recently, ‘Meltdown’ from MAC cosmetics. I discovered it’s demise when one of my clients contacted me to let me know it was discontinued and what colour should they now use for their wedding day.
‘Meltdown’ is a really unusual warm, peachy, copper colour that looks really pretty on it’s own or layered on top of nudes, pinks or browns. Great staying power.
In the MAC range the closest colours are ‘CB96’ & ‘See Sheer’. CB96 is a warm coral with a rosy underone with a frost finish and is a little more vibrant than ‘Meltdown’. ‘See Sheer’ described as ‘Grapefruit Pink’ is a Lustre lipstick and is more subtle than ‘Meltdown’ & ‘CB96’.
‘Gone but not forgotten’ is the MAC dept where you can whether they may have any discontinued products, sad to say I as unlucky.
Luckily I had enough to give my client to use on her wedding day as neither of the other lipsticks were to her liking.
I miss this lipstick and can’t find anything similar – MAC, I need a ‘Meltdown’!
