Every season, we get treated to a few limited edition collections from our fave makeup brands— whether they’re collaborations with popular influencers or celebrities, or specific color schemes for the season. A lot of people go gaga over limited edition products, wanting to grab them ASAP and collect ‘em all. After they fly off the shelves, some popular LE collections are sold for crazy amounts on eBay.
Personally, I don’t tend to really jump on the limited edition train unless I see something that could really add something special to my collection. It takes a lot to get me to run out to the store and buy something before I’ve had a chance to read reviews and determine if I might like it— but by that time it’s too late. Plus, as an influencer, I don’t like doing a ton of posts about or using limited edition products because that puts a shelf life on the post/tutorial. If you’re trying to follow along a few months later, and the product isn’t dupe-able, the content probably has no use to you, right?
But that’s just me— I’m dying to hear what you think.
Do you like hearing reviews/seeing tutorials with limited edition products? Or do you prefer content with permanent products you can find months or years later? Let me know in the comments below. And now, for the best blog posts of the week from The Lipstick League.
