The Lipstick League Question of the Week
When a beauty product is labeled "Limited Edition" (LE), are you more inclined to purchase it?
G's answer: In regard to drugstore limited edition products, I'm not more inclined to make a purchase, but I am CERTAINLY more inclined to find the collection in a timely manner. Since I try to blog and review LE drugstore products as soon as they come out, I don't always have the luxury of reading other bloggers' reviews to see which products might be stand-outs and worth a purchase. So I try to find LE collections in person as quickly as I can, so I can at least look at them to see if anything catches my eye. As for higher-end limited edition collections, I try to read as many reviews as quickly as I can so I can determine whether or not something is worth a purchase before it's gone forever. In summary, the title "limited edition" doesn't compel me to buy, but it does stress me out!
