HELP!!!! makeup tragedy...

okay, i just know y'all are going to think i'm totally nuts [more than you already do, but i can live with that], but...

it's bad enough that Maybelline discontinued Wonder Curl mascara in Canada, now i can't find my eyeliner!

yes, i know i'm president of the Harlots, but i don't use MAC products alone.

my eyeliner of choice is Maybelline Smoked Kohl in the shade "Smouldered Chestnut". and i'm nearly out of the stuff. :(

so i was in the drugstore yesterday and it is GONE!!!! not available!!!

*sigh*

i can't access the Maybelline web site because i can't run Flash on this ancient computer, so i don't know if the product has been completely discontinued or if it's just not available in Canada any more. i'd be most grateful if someone could look for me.

and if it is still available in the US, i'd be even more grateful if some kind soul could buy some for me. 100 pencils should about do it! :D

    Hiya,

    I tried to find a Maybelline Canada site, but couldn't find it. I went on the American one instead.

    I tried to find your product and couldn't.

    But then I looked at the 'lost and found' section.

    Your eyeliner appears to have been 'lost', but the matching product is Cool Effect Eyeliner in Iced Espresso. Exactly how similar the shades are, I don't know. Brandied Raisin and Cocoa Brown also were Iced Espresso.

    Hope that helps. =)

    Poor you. Maybe you can try the alternative listed.

    i had tried the Cool Effects eye shadow cream in "Cool Beans" a while back and wasn't happy with it, so i don't think i'll be giving that stuff a try.

    i'm really a traditional eye pencil kind of gal and i like something that can be as thin or as thick a line as i want and smudge-able [if that's a word]!

    so i might try some Bonne Belle that i saw yesterday when i was looking for an inexpensive colour to recommend to someone else. it's $1.49 per pencil on sale at Shoppers and you can't go wrong at that price!

    :D

    yee haw!

    Bonne Belle Eye Definer in the shade "Midnight Bark" is a close match!

    okay, so the pencil is half the size of the Smoked Kohl, but it's 1/3 of the price! :D

    Yay! It's a great eyeidea that you looked at other makes, and this underlines the fact that you can find a replacement if you look hard enough. =)

    If Wet n Wild and Prestige are available in Canada you might want to check out those lines. Their pencils are great and are very inexpensive (at least here in the U.S.)

    The Smoked Kohl eyeliners were my favorite for years, too. I stocked up a few extras when they discontinued them. I don't think I have the Chestnut one though, my favorites were the gray and navy.

    Rou, can you get the Styli Style pencils (up there and have you tried those? Although I only use powder liner now, those were my favorite. Great control and semi-permanent color that stayed put, and they make a zillion colors. They're around $5-$6 here I believe. They just started making a wider, 'flat' one, but I have only used the normal pencils.

    Link to the normal ones: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.adiscountbeauty.com%2Fpage202.html" class="Popup
