🎉 Anyone else pre-order the holiday (aka limited edition) @colouredraine Cheers to the Beauty palette? 🎉
I didn't get the notorious 👑Queen of Hearts ♥️ palette on the first release, but I was able to pick it up within 2-3 minutes of the first restock, seconds before it sold out again. I'm looking forward to trying this one, although many of the colors do look quite similar to existing Coloured Raine eyeshadows. 🤔
I have all the single shadows except a few of the browns that look nearly identical to me. And I'm sure I'll eventually pick those to too; who am I kidding. I feel a sense of relief when I complete a collection. It's weird, I know. 🤯
Is anyone else feeling like Coloured Raine is pushing it a bit with the price of this palette? It's $56. For an indie brand palette. That's more like mid-range to high-end pricing. It's $6 more than the QOH palette, but I do see this comes with a highlighter in addition to the 12 eyeshadows. But it's still $56, plus about $6 for US shipping. And Coloured Raine doesn't spend millions a year on advertising and marketing like brands do that are sold at Sephora or Ulta. I'm sure they spend a hefty chunk of coin on their affiliate marketing program, but they probably gain more than they spend.
You do get a decent amount of product with the dozen shadows and one highlighter. But the price per gram is more expensive than my beloved Viseart, and I don't consider the formulas comparable. I already felt like the QOH palette price was pushing it a bit. I like it, don't get me wrong. But it's not holy grail status for me. I personally feel like it was a little bit overhyped if I'm being completely honest. I'm just getting ranty now. 🤬
Hopefully this meets my expectations. They're higher for this palette than they were for the Queen of Hearts palette. So hopefully I love it. If not, I'll be kicking myself for not spending the extra $18 and buying the last eyeshadow palette I need to complete my Viseart collection. 🤑💸 #colouredraine #CTTB #CheersToTheBeauty #cheers #colouredrainecheerstothebeauty #indiemakeup #makeupaddictproblems #eyeshadowjunkie #preorder #shutupandtakemymoney #makeupcollector #limitede
