I'm a makeup junkie and NOT afraid to admit it!
I love buying new releases from all my favorite brands, but have limited room for all my beloveds. I HATE throwing anything away because it seems wasteful. Most of my makeup is still in pretty good condition and wasn't cheap!
I bought makeup from glambot.com before and had a good experience, so I thought I'd try selling my makeup this time. I sent in several ABH palettes as well as some NARS and Too Faced items. I also threw in some unused samples because they offer a cash bonus for those.
I packed my stuff carefully and used their FREE shipping label to send my items in. It took about a week for my package to be delivered and for them to email me my offer. (This was a bit nerve wracking as there were no email updates re. Tracking).
The emailed offer gave a total dollar amount as well as a description of the 2 items that were not accepted. One item was expired (whoops!) and the other item did not have enough product left. My cash offer was $56.00.
I was expecting a bit more and contacted their customer support. They nicely explained that a lot of work goes into each piece of makeup before it can be sold again. They need to "keep the lights on" as well as offer attractive prices to buyers, so I get it. If you have ever sold clothing to Buffalo Exchange, Crossroads, etc. you get very little in return.
All in all, I think selling to Glambot was a GREAT IDEA! I was able to pass my makeup to others who would appreciate them more and was also able to earn some extra pocket cash! Woot woot!
