    I’ve stalked many drugstores for certain nail polishes. The worst was for Sally Hansen’s 2008 fall collection. I had searched all the CVSs in my area, multiple times, to no avail. When DH and I were in another state, I plugged CVS into the GPS, and he drove me around to all of them until I found what I was looking for: Quartz Chameleon (x2), Divinity and Alchemy. Yay!

    I really wanted to get my hands on Illamasqua Muse nailpolish, and this was before it was available on Sephora’s website. So, when we took a trip to Scotland/England, I told my husband we had to get it, but forgot to figure out which store to visit. It’s actually a longer story, but I’ll make it short. We only had 1 day in London, which happened to be during a charity run on Sunday, so the city was packed, and the tour buses were stuck in traffic. Through happenstance, I found a Ben Nye store that sold Illamasqua, but not polish. Luckily, they were able to recommend the Selfridge’s where I could find the whole counter. It was about 4:30 or so, and we hopped off the tour buses, took the tube back to Selfridge’s, navigated foot traffic, and made it into the store. Then took a quick pee only to find out that the store would be closing in 5 minutes. Rushed back downstairs just in time to find the counter, be insulted by the makeup artist, buy the polish, and leave London jittery and satisfied.

  • Victoria says:

    Thank goodness I’m usually too lazy to spend too much time tracking down LE unicorn-like mu products, but I did make my friend who was going to UK look for Sleek palettes… and she didn’t understand why anyone would want makeup that badly. :/

  • Mamavalveeta03 says:

    I was living in the middle of nowhere in backwoods WI, literally hundreds of miles from the nearest makeup counter. I discovered that my little brother was taking a trip to France and BEGGED him to come home with some Clarins and YSL cosmetics for me!!! I think he thought I had really lost it.

  • Kim says:

    I was determined to find the NYC blushable cremesticks in the limited edition shades so I hit up at least 6 different drugstores carrying NYC products in one single day.

  • clementine says:

    Nail polishes are definitely the worst, hahahaha… The colors tend to be so unique!

  • Stephanie says:

    Alas, I have gone to PA to frequent ONE shop that had the most divine suc du lattui glycerine soap which was perfect for my skin at the time. But that was probably THE craziest.

  • Cynthia says:

    On my first big purchase from Sephora.com, I got their Best in Bronze Deluxe Sampler, which included Tarte’s clay eyeliner in bronze… but not the double-ended brush that it usually comes with when you buy it separately. I couldn’t find the brush itself on Tarte’s catalog and I refused to use the eyeliner without the proper brush, so I ended up contacting Tarte about it via their website. They ended up sending me a replacement brush…AND another pot of their eyeliner…this time in black! Now, if you look at their online catalog, you can see that the double-ended brush is now available. I won’t presume to take credit for it… but it’s still pretty cool!

  • Tina says:

    the most extreme thing i have done to track down a makeup item is to drive 30 miles for it lol.

  • Erica says:

    Haven’t done anything too extreme besides stalk various drugstores and sephoras for different products, but I plan to do anything – no matter how extreme – to get my hands on my favorites from the mac venomous villains collection next month!

  • Desertedrose says:

    called the company’s customer service number obsessively until they tracked one down in an odd store and had it shipped to me :)

  • Heather says:

    Pay ridiculous prices for MAC Heatherette on ebay. This was the first and last time I will do anything ridiculous for a limited edition product again, lol.

  • Ciambella says:

    Probably the most extreme thing I’ve done is visit my local Walgreens once a week for two months straight desperately hoping they would have the limited edition Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure polish. This is extreme for me because I usually don’t even have the time to visit Walgreens once a month, forget once a week! But I really wanted Hidden Treasure. As the season drew to a close and I kept hearing rumors about how HIdden Treasure was getting harder to find, I finally asked my sister on the east coast to find me a bottle. Then when I went across the country to visit her maybe a month later, I went into every drugstore I ran across (sometimes more than once if I passed by them again) looking for a Sally Hansen display. I finally found one, but the Hidden Treasure display was, of course, empty. I finally got my hands on Nubar 2010 about 10 days ago ($8 on evilBay!) and am absolutely thrilled, but I will always remember Hidden Treasure as the One That Got Away. XD

  • Ciambella says:

    Just in case–my previous comment had the wrong e-mail address. This comment has the correct e-mail address. Sorry about that and thanks for running the giveaway!

  • Haliey says:

    I live in Canada, so we do not have a lot of brands that are in the US. I spent a week going to walgreens, cvs, ult etc, trying to find all the products I couldn’t get in Canada. I still couldn’t find the Queen Helene Mint Julipe mask anywhere. I searched forever in Bellingham but they did not have it.

  • pfefi says:

    At one point I would visit CVS every 1 or 2 days!

  • Amy says:

    I have gone to every counter in my city in the 50km radius hunting down for a blush. Sadly to no avail though

  • What I did wasn’t exactly to track down a makeup item, but more of getting the item when it’s within my price range (Read: Warehouse sale).

    It just happened recently actually :P

    For a sale that starts at 8am, I was in line waiting from 2am (there were 7 others in front of me btw).

  • Redetwhite says:

    I live in Denmark, and I have a very nice bf that always gets a list of products to buy for me when he takes business trips to the US.
    Once I made an order and had it send to a colleague of my bf with an address in the US, so he could go pick it up there, because they did not ship to Denmark. I even had to pay through my google account, so that they could not se that the credit card was from out of country! :)

  • Camille says:

    Visit the store every day !!

  • Heather says:

    Not too crazy, just tracked down a few discontinued products on ebay and drugstore.com.

  • ter says:

    I live in the U.S. & have made quickie one day trips to Canada to find makeup I can’t find here!

  • Jen says:

    I checked every single Walgreens I drove past every single day for 2 weeks until I found Revlon Photoready Foundation. Then I didn’t like it.

  • valli says:

    I wanted a benefit lipgloss that was given free (full size) with a magazine, but it was in a package and you couldn’t see the color. I wanted the peach one, and had to buy 3 issues of the same magazine to get it :s

  • Once I went to another state (Austria) to buy MAC powder which was not available where I lived.

  • tpzhearts says:

    I will look on the internet to find it – seriously sometimes for hours with no results. I also visit every single store in my area that I think will have the product, up to 20 minutes away.

  • Victoria says:

    the most extreme thing i have done to track down a makeup item is to convince my friend to buy me a eyeshadow at Sephora in New York during their honeymoon haha.

  • sylvia says:

    THe most extreme thing i’ve ever done was go about 150 miles away to find a LE eyeshadow. It was my favorite one, and I couldn’t find it here. So after hunting online. Calling a ton of places. I finally found it the next state over!

  • Cinthia says:

    I haven´t really done anything extreme to track makeup down, but when my house (and my makeup collection) got robbed, I did pay twice as much for a MAC Pigment and have it sent from Hong Kong — I live in Brazil.

  • Sandra says:

    Searching for an available dupe for MAC’s Smoke & Diamonds, finding out it was Stila’s Diamond Lil, and then having a friend ship it to me in Dubai!

  • Sandra says:

    I just posted my review on the Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer :) As I mentioned before, having a friend in the US ship makeup to me in Dubai is pretty extreme, I think :)

  • jeansco_84 says:

    4 hour drive to bellevue, wa to get to Burberry! =P

  • Shannon says:

    To track down Sally Hansen’s Hidden Treasure, I’ve gone on mass drugstore raids for hours with another MUAer. we’d hit every drugstore (especially CVS) in the area we’re in, and ultimately we only found one CVS with it. LOL

  • Marie says:

    One of the most “extreme” thing I did was asking my best friend overseas to get something and send it to me.

  • Nina says:

    Well nothing too extreme for me. The most I’ve done is go to every conceivable counter in my area to find that one shade of concealer I needed. Turns out it was phased out. :(

  • Nadine says:

    Waited by the computer at a bizarre hour to jump on an online sale.

  • Halifax says:

    Call for volunteer to CP stuff for me

  • Agnes says:

    I have asked friends and family from around the world to purchase makeup goodies for me that are not available here. its good to know ppl from everywhere! :D

  • zoeykim18 says:

    made a $50 bid for Chanel Jade nail polish on evilbay. thank goodness I was outbid! it ended up going for $102!! o.O

  • Lisa says:

    I’ve definitely stalked drugstores before, looking for LE polishes. Such a pain!

  • Coco says:

    I think mine was when I stalked down all the European websites that shipped to the US in lieu of buying a European sunscreen that, supposedly protects UVA rays far better than American ones (FDA hasn’t approved of certain ingredients sold in Europe), then payed ridiculous shipping prices to ship it back to me. Then my sister went on a trip to Italy and of course that was my chance to stock up whatever she could pull through customs :]]! (Thanks for the giveaway btw! I’m in love with Tarte!!)

  • Angela says:

    I tracked down the correct shade of concealer for me at 3 stores and made my husband drove me from one store to another.

  • Daniela says:

    I was looking for a particular shade of nailpolish all over town and in the next few towns as well. i ended up having to pay a lot more on ebay for it.

  • LostcauseFoundeffect says:

    staying up really late until a product launched online to buy it

  • Fantastic Fourier says:

    It wasn’t for a particular item but there was one week when I just went crazy and stalked all the shops…

  • Mary A says:

    I guess the most extreme thing I’ve ever done to track done a product would be stalking ebay in order to be the final bidder.
