Ok, I have to admit that I feel slightly disappointed the Tarte Big Blush Book Volume III didn’t sell out. Hear me out for a second.
So, if you ever meet a New Yorker you’ll find we like talking about the weather. Well, actually ranting about it. When it’s Summer we bitch about the humidity, when it’s Winter we complain about the cold, when it’s Spring we rant about the pollen, it’s a pretty never ending cycle. You see, I’ve come to the conclusion we are NEVER satisfied. You can give us a picture perfect day and we’d still find something to hate on about it. Come to think of it, maybe that’s just human nature and not just a New Yorker thing!
The same truth applies to makeup. If the palette sold out I’d totally be ranting about it and now that it hasn’t I’m still ranting about it.
If I placed a bet on Tarte’s Big Blush Book 3 selling out I’d have lost big time. I expected this one to go really fast. Now, it’s only available today only but don’t worry I’m positive it’ll be back for Holiday 2017.
However, I thought, like year’s past, that it would disappear fairly fast. And I have to admit I’m a little disappointed I was wrong.
I have a theory the reason it didn’t sell out is because Tarte was clever enough to limit the purchase of the palette. Part of the problem with many newer launches is people are purchasing several and reselling them on E-bay for crazy prices. This is the case with the recent Sephora x Moschino Collection.
I wouldn’t say that this is for ever limited edition launch but for products like the Big Blush Book it does apply! I imagine if Tarte did allow people to buy more than one it would have disappeared by 12PM EST (it launched at 9 AM EST). But since they did, it’s still very much available.
What do you think?
Are you pretty pleased that the palette is here to stay and likely will be around again come the Holidays?
Or just a little bit disappointed it isn’t as limited edition as the last two?
