Over the weekend, Le Metier de Beaute released information about its upcoming On the Coast Kaleidoscope Eyeshadow palette, which was due to be launched today on Saks.com.  For some reason, it launched a day early and sold out in hours. There was a twinkling of hope this morning, when the palette re-appeared for sale. I was able to place an order because I had bookmarked the page and checked in about 6 am California time.  A few of my twitter followers apparently snagged it too.  Unfortunately, it sold out again this morning.  After emailing the company (I’m sure I wasn’t alone!), I received this delightful email which is also posted on Le Metier’s Facebook page:

Color us crazy but we had no idea that a Kaleidoscope could cause such a ruckus!

Our sincerest apologies! Both Le Métier de Beauté and the Saks.com team did not know that the page would go live prior to the announced launch date. A glitch in their system pushed the page out earlier than planned and for that we sincerely apologize.

Due to the overwhelming outcry for “On The Coast,” we are going to do something that we have never done before… make more. Keep an eye on Saks.com for the page to go back up -> you will be able to pre-order “On The Coast” until Friday, April 27th at 12pm or until supplies last.

Thank you for your passion and…we’re listening!

My advice?  Bookmark the page, and also check around Saks.com a bit over the coming days as well. My fingers are crossed for you!  Between you and me, Le Metier is a growing company that turns out excellent products. I’m so impressed that they were responsive to the comments from fans from Twitter, Facebook and email. What more can you ask? Not every makeup company would refresh their stock in response to consumer demand–ahem.
