Tyra Banks has her own makeup line that launched earlier this Fall. She’s quoted in InStyle saying, “I don’t believe in outrageously-expensive beauty products,” and credits a $2 jar of Vaseline as her beauty binge.
Girl, hold up.
The thing about Tyra is she’s always been fairly down to earth. And far be it for me to preach anything about pricing as I’m typically not one for ranting a price so long as the product, makeup, skincare, tech, WHATEVER…has quality backing it. But I was shocked that Instyle also stated, “We love how everything is under $100 and how the 5 Piece TYover Kit was $75.
I wouldn’t say a 5 piece set was affordable at $75…a quick glance at her website reveals $24 Eyes in a Stick Cream Shadow Sticks, $34 2 Minute TYOver Highlighter and Contouring Sticks, $32 Suede & Juicy Lip Color, and $26 Eyeliner (plus many other very highly priced makeup items).
Tyra, is that you girl or did we mistakenly run onto Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford’s Makeup websites?
I’m not saying that the new Tyra Banks Makeup Collection isn’t great. Who knows?! These products could be sent from the makeup gods above and worth every penny you pay for them. But..I have to digress and say I was pretty shocked by the price tags. Tyra seems like she would be one to put out a range of cosmetics at a more affordable price point. Plus this is a freshman venture…you’d think they’d start out low (maybe $15-18 range) and work themselves higher as they grew in popularly.
Honestly, I didn’t expect Bobbi Brown pricing for a Tyra Banks Makeup Collection but lots of luck with it! When you’re busy being quoted as splurging on $2 Vaseline and pricing your Lipsticks at $32, well, one has to question your mentality?!
Do you think the Tyra Banks Makeup Collection pricing is ok?
Or do you think it’s a touch TOO high?
