So my girlfriend has a tradition of telling me (heavily hinting) at what she wants when there is a gifting holiday coming up. This particular holiday was our 3rd anniversary! Usually, it's the thought that counts but she hinted that she wanted a makeup from a brand called Urban Decay. Apparently, she loves this brand (I have no clue about makeup or makeup brands). I just graduated college, so I don't have a lot of money to spend. I did some research online for discounted makeup and this website was in the search result. At first, I didn't realize that the makeup was second-hand because the website looked pretty sleek and professional. Because she knows I'm on a budget, I showed her the site and asked if it was safe to buy the makeup she wanted from this site. She was a bit surprised at first, but then we read some other reviews online and asked their Customer Service, if it was safe to use used makeup. Makeup artists and those other girls that sell makeup at the mall use used makeup on customers, so we figured it was a safe bet.
The items came (a little later than we expected), but she was really surprised that the items were almost new. Everything was very clean and well-packaged (picture below). They even threw in some free samples! She was very happy and I got to save money. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me!
