I tried to warn the Q that the "reselling used cosmetics" story was going viral. Read Queen Bea's warning here. It's not hard to figure out that when Perez Hilton is covering the story, you're in trouble!
Lo and behold, what story turned up on Huffington Post? Yeah, you know the one.
Finally, QVC has posted a short response on their community blogs:
I'd like to take an opportunity to comment and provide clear guidance related to recent postings in the QVC community about what happens when customers return cosmetics to QVC. I want to offer you some assurance that the practice and policy we follow is this: cosmetics returned to QVC are disposed and are not returned to stock.
Please know that if you ever feel you've received a cosmetics item from QVC that appears to have been opened or used, you can just call and report it to our Customer Services team at 1.800.367.9444. We'll promptly help you return the item for a full refund.
You gotta nip this stuff in the bud before it grows out of control!
