Tony and Tina? Where did they go!

Re: Tony and Tina? Where did they go!I like the brand as well, I use their shimmery powder (Cosmetic in "Flesh") sometimes when I want to highlight my cheeks. I know it was discontinued and I bought a bunch at Marshalls like a year ago, haven't seen it around since. I don't really need any more right away though so I will survive without it for now. Good luck and I'm sure you'll find it on Ebay!
Re: Tony and Tina? Where did they go!Yea I bought a few e/s from Marshall's last yr. They sold them for dirt cheap and I went back to get more. I really liked their e/s duos and the shimmery powder in "Flesh" was great too.
I think Emily_3383 have some T&T universal dusts that she's trying to get rid of since she doesn't use them. I was rummaging through her cosmetics when I was over her house...lol. Otherwise, you can check it through Ebay. I know I sold some Tony & Tina cosmetics there awhile back since I overbought some stuff :)
Re: Tony and Tina? Where did they go!I worked for them in Toronto. The line was small but almost every product was great....but nothing they had was anything more than tweaked off the shelf cosmetics. All small lines have to buy their stuff from manufacturers who supply many companies -so when your favorite small company vanishes - look around and you may mind the same colors in some other small line - it may be in a different package, be a different size and have had different scents but the pigment and the texture is the same.
Tony&Tina was a great price, high quality in a fun package but if you want the same products - many of them still exist in the company called MAKE-UP FOREVER, especially the glitters and shimmers. MAKE-UP FOREVER does not have the lovely scent to their lipstick even though I am pretty sure they have the same manufacturer. I also think the additive that Tony&Tina requested made the texture better (what were matte lipsticks off the manufacturers shelf became these amazing satins when they were tweaked for Tony&Tina) The other thing you will notice is the value is less; MAKEUP FOREVER has much smaller sizes in their shimmers and glitters. The packaging is similar for eye-shadows but is that dull serious black and not Chrome.
I still have the nub of a T&T glitter eye pen. So freakin' beautyfullll, the darkest brown, ever, with a modest amount of glitter, and it even has a built-in smudger.
ETA: just took it out for a test drive, for the first time in about 8 years. I got the pencil in 1995 or so. My cousin's SIL worked at a factory that made eye pencils (different brands) and she sent some my way. The color is a lot lighter than it was originally, it used to be my panda-eye go-to, but now it is just a soft brown. Still super pretty, and glittery, and the little sponge still works (not dried out). I checked on eBay, but they don't have the smudger, so the newer ones may be different than the 1990s model. I have about 1" left, and I'm going to use it up.
