    Default Prescriptives is being shut down...I'm mad!

    I just "discovered" them. I really like their cosmetics. Now they're being discontinued. (Whining) Why does this always happen?

    Calyx will stay though.

    I made a post in the Fragrance Industry Discussion board on why Lauder is doing this: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=236173

    Oh, no. Their AnyWear compact foundation has the best coverage I've ever seen and it doesn't feel like pancake mix on my face. I do have one that is way too fair for me, got it off Ebay, I had better get one in my color before they're gone just in case I need it for something special. Thanks for the heads up!

    Man, I recall so many ladies wearing the scent back in the late 80s.
