The Best 2000s Beauty Buys We Wish Were Still Around

At this point, it's fair to say that our '90s obsession is slowly evolving into nostalgia for the 2000s. Kylie's matte brown pout is now veering nude and glossy; off-the-shoulder tops are inching back towards spaghetti straps. And — out of nowhere — the iridescent frosted lip is back.
Unfortunately, many of the beauty buys we played with back then are now long gone. Limited Too and its sparkle-tastic beauty section pretty much disappeared in 2008. Jessica Simpson's edible Dessert Beauty line only stuck around long enough to give us a toothache. And don't even get us started on trying to find the perfect shimmer puff for our legs, arms, and collarbones.
But good news: Many beauty brands today seem to be taking inspiration from our former Caboodles' stash. The new iterations might not be as out-there or playful as our former selves want them to be, but hey, we're adults now (kind of). Ahead, a few of the early 2000s beauty buys we wish would make a comeback — and their grown-up, modern-day replacements.
