Many of us know the shock and dismay of finding out our favorite products have been discontinued. In my case, an entire company (Real Cosmetics) went out of business, leaving me wondering where I could get one of the few foundations that match me. Noting this common experience, the following companies have created programs and services to locate or duplicate old faves:

*Three Custom Color can match foundations, lipsticks, cheek colors and more. Just send in a swatch of the color you want or a dime-sized sample. Ph: 1-888-262-7714 or visit

*The Powder Room is another option to duplicate long-lost cosmetics. Ph: 215-969-0661 or visit
