Do you shop QVC for your cosmetics? If so, you might want to inspect your purchases carefully for signs of use. A thread posted a few days ago on QVC’s Beauty Banter forum debates this issue. The original commenter said she received a used Perricone kit, and a few others echoed similar stories: “I just had this happened to me. I posted a new thread regarding this. Mine was a LG blush I received that was not in the original packaging and upon checking the compact it looked as though someone had brushed across the top.” The community message board users appear to be fairly polarized on this claim, however. Several state that “there have been many, many reports of people receiving used items here on the boards for years so I definitely believe it.” On the other side are die-hard QVC fans who feel the company would never take the risk of re-selling used products, or if customers received something damaged, it was probably due to human error.
