The makeup department in stores have fancy displays of new products on a regular, what seems like a short term, basis. As soon as a certain portion is sold, they pack it up and replace this with a new display. Where do the old items go?

Anyone know what happens to the returned items?

I’m heading to the drug store (discount day) and hoping that the new lipstick I like is still available. It’s been six weeks.

they usually display the new stuff and then when more comes in the put the stuff that was on display on the shelves for you to purchase with the rest of the makeup.

Not here. These new items & accompanying fancy display are packed up and removed. They were doing that again today. Only the basics are added back on the shelves.

A lot of my favorites end up this way so I usually end up buying them online then. Someone is bound to have them. Was it something specific you had in mind? :unsure:

I was just curious where all the leftovers went.
Good idea to look online. I wanted Lise Watier lip stain/balm. Sure enough, the colour I wanted was gone. It’s on order but may no longer be produced.

I bought a bunch of the lipliner that I use; will no doubt have them for years.
