Supply and Demand

Remember this?

Last month, this limited edition palette sold out like hotcakes in department stores and websites alike, and was gone in a flash.

But not forever.

If you missed out the first time, you can still snag the Bobbi Brown Chocolate Eye Palette - on eBay. The only catch is, the bids are flowing in and the price is going up, up, up.

This one, shipping out of London, is currently at US $89 with 17 bids and 13 hours left to go in the auction.

The original price was US $48.

So, dear much more than the original retail price would you pay for this palette? Moreover, how much of a premium would you pay for any sold out cosmetic item?
