I read about this site in US InStyle and can I just say, it's set to change my life forever. Have you ever been heartbroken—so crazily, madly upset—when a brand goes ahead and makes the insane decision to stop stocking your favourite shade? I have. And I don't know if I can go through it again.
Luckily, with Three Custom now on my radar it looks like I won't have to. See they can recreate discontinued shades for you or even help you to create your own shade from scratch!
You have three simple ways to create your dream/long-lost shade: use Three Custom's Discontinued Shade Search to search by brand and shade name for your exact match; send in a sample of the discontinued shade and they'll match it word-for-word on colour, texture and coverage; send in the colour of your dreams in any shape or form (except maybe an elephant, though that would make a pretty nail polish shade)—seriously, you can send a scrap of fabric, a photo, anything, and say, "Make that an eyeshadow, please," and they will, you know. Marvellous.
If you happen to be in the Petersham, NSW area, you can also check out Three Custom's products at the To Fred salon.
