Online Auctions

Online auction websites like eBay have many sellers that carry a wide range of Jane Cosmetics products, including some discontinued items no longer available in stores. Products are usually sold at a discount, with some sellers offering items in wholesale quantities. Always look at seller feedback when considering purchases through eBay to ensure a good percentage of customer satisfaction with previous sales. In addition, ask the seller how old the products are, as certain sellers may carry very old stock that has gone bad. Also, check if the product has been opened or used in any way. EBay does not allow the sale of used cosmetics, but does allow products that are opened and unused, as well as makeup brushes that have been used and cleaned thoroughly, so always ask a seller about an item’s condition if not clearly stated in the auction.
