I'm going through my makeup stash and getting rid of a bunch of old stuff I never use. I'll be posting old MAC palettes, MSFs, shadesticks, lipsticks, etc; Urban Decay eyeshadows and nail polishes; Stila palettes, eyeshadows, and blushes; Nars eyeshadow duos and blushes; and some random things from Tarte, Becca, Fresh, Smashbox, and others. Mostly purchased from 2005-2007 and much of it discontinued or LE and HTF. 

It's going to take me awhile to get everything cataloged and posted so feel free to contact me if there's something in particular you are looking for. I'll be posting prices as I determine them, but you are welcome to contact me with offers.

For the purposes of this blog: "Swiped" means a finger was rubbed across the surface of the product to try on or swatch the color- you'll see a fingerprint or two and an area where the surface is smoothed out, but you should still see a lot of the original pressed powder surface and the amount of product removed is negligible. "Used" means the product was picked up with a brush- it may be smooth or there may be some indentation, depending on the brush used. Amount of usage will be noted for each product.

Palettes (MAC Holiday 2005 & 2006, old Stila, Tarte, UD)

Blushes/Highlighters (Old MAC MSFs, Nars, Stila)




Ordering:  Email me at nailartistacky [at] gmail.com with the subject "blog sale," the items you would like to purchase, name and address, and your paypal email address. I will send you a Paypal invoice. All items with posted prices are first come first serve. Items I have not decided on a price for are open to offers.

Payment: Paypal only, please.

Terms:  All sales final, no returns or exchanges. I am providing extensive photos of every product for sale, as well as detailed descriptions of condition and use. If you have any questions please ask before purchasing. I will be happy to provide additional photos or answer any questions you may have, so don't hesitate to ask.

Shipping:  I am located in the US and I am willing to ship worldwide to buyers with established feedback history. Please send me a link to your feedback if you are outside the US. Please understand this has nothing to do with being suspicious of international buyers! It's just that Paypal seller protection does not cover international shipments so I do need to take this extra step.

US orders will ship First Class Mail with delivery confirmation, unless they are over 13 ounces- then they will ship via Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.  International orders will ship First Class international. All order over $100 will be insured. I charge actual shipping rates, plus $.50 for packing materials. 

International customers please take note: you are responsible for any duties or customs fees your package may incur. I do not lie on customs forms. Period. I will not mark the package as a gift or declare a lower value. Customs fees suck, I know, but do not ask me to break the law so you don't have to pay taxes. The items will be declared as "used cosmetics" and the value will be the actual amount that you have paid. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not purchase.

Feedback: My MUA username is Saltwater. I do not have feedback there, but I do have an established Etsy shop (Firebird Bath & Body) with over 17,000 sales and 100% positive feedback. Feel free to contact me on Etsy if you want to verify that that's me- but I'd appreciate if all questions and blog sale discussion could be kept here and in email (I try to keep my business and personal communications separate, for my own sanity!)

  1. Hi. I live in the UK and was wondering how much the following items would be:

    MAC Holiday 2006 (Formal Black): Velvet - 6 Smoked Eyes
    MAC Shooting Star Mineralize Skinfinish (LE A Muse 2006)

    Also, how much would shipping be? I don't have a MUA account nor do I have an Etsy account but I do however, have an eBay account with 134 positive feedback (no negative nor neutral)That would be the only way to show you my feedback.
