hello mga sis, i want to ask your opinion on this unfortunate situation that happened just now.
I bought a preloved make-up here in GT. When i applied it on my cheeks, i saw chunks of glitters on my face and it wasn't anything like the reviews/swatches I saw online. I thought it has expired already so I researched more and voila, it turns out, this particular Mac item was manufactured last 2007 (batch code A37) and correct me if I'm wrong, this expired last 2010 considering a shelf life of 3 years. (or is it 2 years? for a powder blush?)
Seller was saying, back view photo of the item was provided but then the batch code was barely readable. Plus, I am not some make-up junkie hence my knowledge in cosmetics are very limited, and I didn't know what these batch codes mean until hours ago. I'm not a fan of mac cosmetics btw.
Tell me mga sis, tama ba na HINDI I-DISCLOSE NA EXPIRED NA YUNG ITEM, OR BETTER YET, TAMA BA NA MAGBENTA KA PA NG EXPIRED NA ITEM??
which btw she claimed she knows it is expired, pinakita pa daw nya yung batch codes at nasa buyer na lang daw yon kung bibilhin pa or hindi!
okay, it's my fault for being ignorant on these stuffs but IT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND THAT SOMEONE WOULD SELL AN EXPIRED ITEM! seriously?
I can't believe how sellers would still sell an expired item. i mean aanhin mo ang panis na gatas kung di mo maiinom?
(i must admit i made this mistake too but have edited my post to remove the expired item, i got it kase from another GT sis months ago not knowing it was manufactured years ago na din pala).
so, you'll tell me, it's my responsibility to properly research first before buying anything online.. okay lesson learned! in fact na-trauma na ako bumili na ng mga preloved MUs!
but, that's not the issue here. it's a seller selling expired items w/o properly disclosing it in her post. yun lang.
oh, ask your dad, your husband, your boyfriend, your lolo and lola, your neighbors, the tricycle driver, ask them if they know what A37 means in your mac makeup. if that makes any sense!!
i've thought about posting her name or not, but im doing it now to warn other sellers since she clearly has an intention of selling expired cosmetics and ika nga nya, Nasa buyer na lang yon kung bibilhin pa o hindi.cutiecam
name nya here in gt.
