    Used makeup on the web is HUGE especially for designer stuff.
    Definitely in Australia where we don't have great return policies on makeup like the US does.
    Often people buy, swatch, work out its not their colour, or the formula doesn't suit them and then re-sell.
    Or for limited edition collections or discontinued that were in high demand.
    Some MAC eyeshadows I have are listed online MORE than what they were new and they've been opened!
    There's disinfectant spray you can use to disinfect make up.

    Having said ALL that, no way am I buying someone's used makeup! Disinfected or not!

    This stuff wasn't even designer. It was just Australis, Revlon etc. All stuff you can buy cheap enough. They were even well used way more than once unless the only application she did required half a bottle of foundation and half of the 4 lippys. There was even a smokey eye pallet that had 2 shades almost all used 😂

    Personally, I don't get the insane 'rare' bonds movement going on atm. People are paying 4x more than retail for second hand clothes :/ and then bonds rereleases the popular ones anyway for retail making the 100$ you spent on one onesie a waste! I bought a pair of bonds leggings for my son from best and less for $4 and they selling for like $25 secondhand now. It's crazy :/

    I used to be confused by it all. I mean they are cute.... but they are onesies??? Then I joined a few of the bonds FB groups and omg. A few in particular do 'lucky dips' which is just a euphemism for a lotto where women go out and buy $20 suits then have literally 30 numbers @ $3 or 4 a number. One person wins. They've now made $90+ on a $20 outlay. And the sad thing is many of the women openly admit to having addictive tendencies to these outfits and how much they've lost on these lucky dips. I find it really predatory behaviour tbh and it makes me angry. Ok you have 4 suits that bub never wore and you want to sell them. But to purposely go and and buy a heap of suits then make 500% profit taking advantage of what is, in essence gamblers.... yuck

    I also hate when people get items for free or cheap and then sell them for profit. I get that it is now their item but why not just give it away or sell it for what you paid? It's greedy :/

    Yeah not long ago Best and Less had bonds on special and both our local stores were empty before lunch. It's blatantly obvious people do it to make a profit. I've only ever bought bonds on special, so just can't imagine spending $70 + on an outfit they will grow out of so quick.

    The bonds thing.... I confess I have sold jumpsuits at high price I don't care because we can't even feed our kids at the moment so I have sold nearly everything in our house! Unicorns, jumpsuits etc.

    Maybe I should sell my rain checks LOL. Just kidding........

    You should be on a bugaboo or pram pge that's even another laugh.

    I will post some tonight all my Apps are updating
