Wow, just noticed they actually posted one about 3 days ago. Doesn't look like there are any biters yet. Out of all the places you can still find the product, Duwop's own site sure isn't one of them, so the product's obviously been discontinued. Shocker.

Drugstore.com and Beauty.com each carry several items that aren't actively made anymore. It's great for random items you fall in love with and can't find anymore, but I'm usually careful about what I get from there simply because they carry a lot of old stock. Occasionally it works to my advantage (like with this old Neutrogena mask/scrub I adored), but other times, I'm squeamish.

 

But it's already been established that RCB puts these type of items into their boxes, so it's no surprise that they're now attempting to sell them. The legality of it is something I'd wonder about. However, I doubt she generates enough business for it to be worth getting into.

Could she be selling fake or imitation items?

 

I'm just asking as glossybox when they were in Canada, they sent items that were 5 years expired, that they bought on ebay from sketchy people.

 

Some people online had found that out, as well as my own posting on my blog of the actual items they sent me, and all the tags and codes from those items. 

 

Glossybox Canada had even gone as far as saying Revlon and Avon sponsored their boxes, when in fact they never did and I had even gotten that in writing from one of the companies (and prob have that letter somewhere still.....).

 

So now seeing the kinds of things some people do and also how easy it is to fake items thesedays, you never know....

She's been caught in the past selling fake/imitation products as well as expired products. The one item that still sticks in my head is that Island purse where she covered up the label with tape!

Well,

if I'm going to buy expired products I should be told that in advance...lol.

For skincare and cosmetics if the date is coming up soon and it is from a drugstore- I do not mind.

 

Also, there is 2 food or candy stores I shop from online and one of them used to have a clearance section and they put the expiry date was on all those items- like chocolate bars or candy best the month before.

I never had anything that was bad yet (and a lot of american candy has no dates on it still.....).

 

But if it is someone who you do not know how the products were stored, then I'm not sure I want anything they have.

Weren't the Betsy Johnson glasses fakes, too? And then wasn't there some ancient Hard Candy?

I was just at a optical store in the mall this weekend and saw they carry the D&G line.

The chain I was at New Look is generally quite expensive- the cheapest full basic eyeglass pair is $300+

 

To my surprise the D&G frames were made in China? not all of them,but the plastic ones I was looking at were. They were selling for under $200 frames alone.

 

I thought they only had Italian made stuff? maybe now some is just "italian design"?

... a-n-n-d its gone. I guess Patsy decided that discretion was the better part of valor and drove off into the sunset (in her fancy-schmancy sports car), trailing cheap sunglasses, sex toys and expired makeup behind her. :( IOW, her drama-llama FB page is gone. Vanished. Poofed. Amscrayed. Auf weidersehn. Buh-bye. *Apologies to the mods if I'm out of line, here, or simply over the top. I promise, it was all funny in my head.

The website is gone as well.

The angry comments were regarding a giveaway. It looks like she was supposed to send out a prize in exchange for the company promoting her and she never sent the winner anything.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
