Second Hand Makeup

A few weeks ago I joined Facebook makeup group where members can buy and sell makeup. It's a lovely and supportive community and I've actually purchased two products from this page - Urban Decay Vice palette and Tarte Showstopper palette.

They both came really quickly, they were hardly used and gave me the chance to try out UD and Tarte products for the first time and for the fraction of the cost! 

Here are some tips I would like to share and make your buying experience so much better! 

1. Be sure you know what you're buying. If you feel like it's a fake product, ask for receipts and more pictures.

2. Always, always pay through Goods & Products option on PayPal. If the product arrives damaged, misadvertised or just goes missing, you can make a claim and get your money back. Friends and Family rate is mostly used by scammers as you can't claim it back.

3. Be fast! I was eyeing Inglot 15 shadow palette for £12 (!!!), but forgot to message seller about it. It was sold in about 10 minutes. She had the loveliest golden shade in that palette (cries crocodile tears).

4. Sanitise before use! I know that this is a no brainer, simply use makeup sanitiser products to clean up any bacteria or gunk that might've been left by the previous owner. Even better, ask them to sanitise the product for you!

I know that second hand makeup is a strange subject to talk about. Some  might find it gross, some might want to buy the products themselves from the actual counter. But let's be real, it's just makeup so let's have a bit of fun with it and save some money on the way as well.
