These kinds of product releases are a way for followers to support Star and snag products they often treat more like collector's items than makeup.
Star fits into a trend of influencers using limited-release strategies to create buzz around products like makeup, the most notable of whom is Kylie Jenner, whose personal net worth has grown to $1 billion, according to Forbes, largely on the strength of her cosmetics company.

Fans of beauty YouTube influencer Jeffree Star, who has over 15 million subscribers, will tell you: there's a strategy behind scooping up desired products and merchandise released on a Jeffree Star Cosmetics launch day.
"When I know a launch is coming I set my timer on my phone for 10 minutes beforehand, and then again 3 minutes beforehand," Kendall Alfred, who is also an influencer with 178,000 subscribers on YouTube, told Business Insider. "It's important to have a strong internet connection and have the page already opened. You should log in to your customer account before the launch for a quicker checkout process. I usually use PayPal so that it's a one-click job. Have a list of what you want already written down so you can be as quick as possible."
