There is something to be said for marketing that is for sure.
GET YOURS BEFORE IT’S SOLD OUT!
Okay, we get it, we are all a bunch of peeons and we will do whatever you say SEPHULTA! I myself have fallen victim to these claims and false sense of need for a product I basically already have in 18 different packages.
Lately I have fallen in sweet youtube love with Kimberly Clark and her “Anti-Haul” series. Also every so often I fall down this rabbit hole of panning and de-cluttering videos in a desperate attempt to believe that one day I will have enough balls to do the same.
If you haven’t met/seen Kimberly Clark you can see her first Anti-Haul below.
Let us follow through with this thought process and discuss the Champagne Glow.
Retailing in at $59 CA- I don’t feel so bad about the price if I am speaking from the heart. Let’s be real… I bought Champagne pop and it was $46… so for another $13 I am not so concerned about price point.
So.. the deets (right from the horses mouth on Sephora.ca)
– 2 x 0.19 oz Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed highlighter shades in Champagne Pop (soft white gold with pinky peach undertones), Prosecco Pop (medium warm gold)
– 2 x 0.12 oz Mineral Blush in Amaretto (matte toasted almond), Pamplemousse (matte warm coral pink)
– 0.10 oz Luminous Blush in Rosé Spritz (soft peachy pink with pale gold shimmer)
Why won’t I buy it? (Link for those who DO want to buy it)
- First off, I am trying hard to love my collection, very hard. Spend some time with things I love and really pare down what I don’t. I want to save my money for things I truly can’t live without, and this may be one of those eventually.
- I am tired of giving YouTubers my money. I spend so much time looking at your face as it is and I know that lines your pockets, so I don’t feel bad that a portion of my $59 won’t go in your pocket.
- LIMITED EDITION! Pssssh… right, Just like champagne pop which is now permanent.
- I already own CP. As much as the other shades are beautiful and I love the packaging, I have enough blush and highlighters that I could probably triplicate dupes and also rouge New York City for six years. (Albeit I can’t speak to quality on either packaging or formula as I don’t OWN it).
- I am not saying I will never buy it. I am mearly pondering absolute necessity. I don’t feel like I will miss much if I do miss out on it, and to me that isn’t worth $59.
What are your plans for items you aren’t buying?
Miss everyone’s beautiful faces!
