Is it just me or does ebay seem slow right now? I've been searching for "mac lip gloss *color name*" and only one or two listings show up. I seem to remember that when I did that a few weeks back I would have significantly more listings show up.

Oh and I bought Manic Panic neon yellow and chartruse lipstick. I feel so silly about having such outrageous colors, but I don't have any lipstick in those colors yet!!

sometimes it's because they've caught somebody who was selling a stolen shipment or an employee selling a bunch of stolen stuff, and they crack down and kick them off

But i guess they need to look out for their profits and sales.Sounds like a good job to have tho!!

Yeah it would be easy to abuse it.Or any company where you get good staff discounts or free allocations, it would be so easy for an employee to abuse it.

It technically isn't counterfeit, but it might as well be!

Yeah that happens on Ebay, I've noticed that a few times while I was hunting things down ~ Ebay runs hot & cold.....
