Have you been waiting for the NARS Bento Box!?

Is it just me or do any of you also find the idea of having to get on a waiting list to BUY something crazy?!  I understand that making something hard to get makes it more desirable - the capitalist side of me gets that - but the socialist side of me thinks that if you have the money you should just be able to just buy it, and they should just keep making them until everyone that wants one, has one! Rant over!

NARS has caught on to what video game console makers have known for years - the best way to build up demand for something is to not make enough!  Send out a few and watch the people fight over them!  Or in the case of beauty products, make a few and watch what people will pay for them on Ebay!
Bento Box Set - $125 - a limited edition set of two Kabuki cups that were hand-poured with a new exclusive-to-NARS lipstick formula in highly pigmented shades containing Vitamin E.  Housed in a handmade bento box, the set also comes with a Kabuki lip brush, designed for precise application by dipping the brush into the cup and blending until desired coverage is achieved.

It will be available Monday at Holt Renfrew and at www.narscosmetics.com - you can get on the wait list at www.narscosmetics.com/bento - you won't have to fight me for one, I'm not on the list!  I'd be curious to know if any of you are or what your general opinion of beauty wait lists are!

  1. Personally, I'm not into the wait lists, especially when the product isn't really that.. unbelievable.

    I wouldn't buy this if they were making loads, so I guess I wouldn't be interested in it because its rare.. I feel like this might flop as i've only heard medocre things about it.

  2. I think it's really neat and pretty. I think the waiting list thing is ridiculous though-things get so hyped up these days and now it's happening in beauty too. I don't understand why companies are making beauty products so limited now.

  3. It will be interesting to see how many people buy them to try and make a buck on Ebay!

    Best, Lisamarie
