Top Limited Edition Beauty Buys

Limited Edition pieces used to be the preserve of luxury fashion brands before trickling down to the high-street and now words like 'online exclusive', 'capsule collection' and 'collectors edition' are becoming common place. We knew it wouldn't be long before the beauty industry jumped on board this trend, with everything from mascaras to candles being given the treatment so far. The Rhianna red lipstick for MAC sold out in just THREE HOURS the first time it went online for example. 

The whole thing does seem a bit cruel however - getting hooked on a the perfect lipstick shade or nail polish is so easy - but for beauty bees like me (flitting from one brand to another at the promise of perfect skin) limited edition pieces are a fun way to experiment with my look. Here's the top pieces I've got my eye on right now. Happy Shopping! X
