ES128A Pure Gold.  I don't see it on their site but I'm 50 years old.  Makeup never had expiration dates up until what?  10 or so years ago?  I'm alive and kicking, not blind, no lip cancer or arsenic/lead poisoning.  I also don't have OMG my eyeshadow is 2 years old and might kill me issues.  

 

Yes, I know that there have been more "awareness" issues of ingredients and such in recent years but I believe that younger people freak out needlessly.  I'm more worried about what's in my water than I m about how old my eyeshadow is.  Seriously.

This is a potential 'yikes' situation. Has anyone contacted Nyx or Ipsy to see what they say?

 

My coworker and I aren't going to open ours for the time being.

My email to NYX:
One more question. A few people have asked me to verify if these colors were discontinued or if these colors are making a comeback. If discontinued when were these discontinued? A few of my members at MakeupTalk wanted to by Fahrenheit, for example, but it’s not on the NYX site.

 

NYX rep reply:
Sure thing! If it’s not available for purchase on the website this item has been completely sold out and will no longer be available for purchase.

just because something isn't made anymore, doesn't make it bad.  There are lots of colors from other vendors who make special limited runs or it is now sold out in that color.

 

Geez, I am sorry however I have to agree with DonnaD here.   Lots of overreactions.   I used my purple shadow yesterday and I am still around today to talk about it! lol

I don't think anyone is saying anything is "bad". I think people are double-checking, because using an expired product on/near your eyes could cause infections or other problems. Not an "overreaction", just being cautious.

I got ES63A Cryptonite

 

has anyone tried looking up the lot number to see when it was produced? I feel like I've seen that done before on MuT (I believe it was related to a retired lipstick color), but I have no idea which resources to utilize and just google isn't cutting it lol

I know that my readers, those who came to me, were concerned. I know that as of November 30, 2012 the colors were still sold and I believe were discontinued by early summer (2013). As I said to other people, it doesn't mean the products are expired. To me the failure on the shadows with Ipsy is that Ipsy didn't check to see if the items were available for sale. The failure with NYX is providing the shadows to Ipsy in the first place without having these items for sale even as a "limited edition comeback" like MAC did earlier this year with Candy Yum Yum (which has since been made "permanent" again). Both Ipsy AND NYX could have taken all of these discontinued colors and done a special NYX-Ipsy page with essentially a "Once these are gone it's gone! Stock up while supplies last!" type of promotion. People would have been frenzied to get their hands on the shadows at that point because the colors are no longer sold on NYX's main site. I remember when MAC brought back old discontinued favorites for a "limited time" people went nuts and many of the colors sold out. I believe had NYX went that route with these colors that they could have sold whatever stock they have left via such a sale and not one would have been upset by the fact that discontinued colors were sent out in the first place.

 

Personally, I will be used the shadow sent to me in my Ipsy bag because it's not expired, just discontinued, but I know I'm irked by the fact that I can't get my hands on a few of the other colors sent out like Golden Poppy and Fahrenheit.

 


 

For those curious... Last year I created a "master list" for myself because I wanted to buy more NYX shadows and products without duplicating colors (which I have the habit of if it's a color I like). Here is my list as of November 30, 2012 of known NYX shadows. Most are now discontinued.

Yeah, I'm 48 and will be 49 in a cpl months. I had eyeshadows from the 80s up until the Federal Floods in New Orleans (2005) I had keep some GORGEOUS Diane Von Furstenberg, Ultima II, and other designer colors from discontinued lines. My eyes never fell out. LOL

I do agree that it was poor marketing by both companies. It does seem like Nyx has a lot of seasonal changes with their colors. Most of the very high end designer makeup lines (the ones that are associated with couturiers) often have ONLY seasonal colors, so you snooze you loose. I would also love to be able to purchase the Farenheit color.

How is this an overreaction? People are just being cautious. That's great that you used yours and didn't have any issues, but there are lots of people who would rather make SURE the product is 100% ok before putting it near their eyes.. Not worth risking an infection over a cheap eye shadow. 

 

I'm more irritated about the fact that Ipsy is sending out products that aren't even available for purchase directly from the company any more. Part of the reason I sub to Ipsy is to try NEW things...not items that are on their way out. If I wanted to buy stuff like that, I'd hit the clearance rack at Ulta.

:clap. Couldn't agree more! The chances of a POWDER product going "bad" are like zilch! I promise people, you'll survive.
