I voted nope. While I do like LE packaging, I don’t like it when you can’t replace a product you’ve fallen in love with because the brand only made so many of them. And that’s more important to me than packaging. So nope.

I don’t like the false sense of urgency that the limited nature of a product creates. There is far less incentive for the company to stand by the quality and function of the product when there’s a limited batch.

I don’t mind LE as long as there is adequate supply of the item. KVD Saint and Sinner palette is LE but it didn’t sell out in minutes. I don’t like the false sense of scarcity a company will create so they can make a quick buck. I don’t like feeling like if I don’t get it, I’ll miss out. And I don’t like when LE has poorer quality to accommodate it’s packaging or its collaboration with so and so. But it depends. I liked the Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Palette. I wish Disney would stop slapping its face on every brand. Enough already!

I do like a lot of LE releases – the products are often unique and really lovely. What I don’t like is this “engineered” difficulty in getting one’s hands on the products and this occurs a bit too often. That created sense of urgency is really off-putting.

They’re okay for me – because I generally look and admire or read the reviews and find that it’s not worth the hype. Very few limited edition numbers make their way to Australia.
If I was living in the US, I would be annoyed that sufficient numbers of a LE product weren’t manufactured to cover the interest of possible consumers.

I think LE is just another ‘hurry up & buy’ marketing ploy that has become much abused. Unfortunately I’ve found too many LE products to be of poor quality too.

I don’t mind them because let’s face it, it’s fun seeing new stuff come out and if everything was permanent, brands would only make so much because displays can only hold so much, etc etc. I think limited edition stuff gives us a lot more choice and excitement, with the downside of quality sometimes falling short, and unavailability if you miss it the first time (or actually pan the product). Fair trade.

I voted ‘not really’, and my reasoning is this:
When a new (limited edition) product is put out and I fall in love with it, it is then unavailable for future purchase.
That really stinks, especially being a fair-skinned, freckled ginger who has a difficult time finding products that truly compliment and enhance my skintone and texture. It’s kind of a love-hate thing…lol! We all love new products, but hate when we can no longer buy them! ❤
