GlitterSniffer is no longer a registered user on Etsy and has not been for some time. I refuse to speculate as to the reasons. Since they are no longer registered I had to contact Etsy through their Help Center. They will let me know the status of my complaint as soon as possible.

I sent a message with a summary of  my complaint as an FYI in the event GS attempts to reopen. Additionally, it has been speculated that Working Girl Cosmetics, also on Etsy, is also run by Lela, or those associated with GlitterSniffer. It lists itself as a 'sister shop' to GlitterSniffer and directs people to the GS Facebook page for updates/contests/etc. As such I reported my suspicions via the 'report this shop' link via WGC's shop page.

It should be noted that WGC may, in fact, not be run by GS/Lela, or may not be using unsafe pigments, and may be following all safety precautions when creating product. I reported the shop as a precaution, and if it is found that it is not doing anything wrong no negative repercussions will be felt by the shop. I would like to point out that the shop has 99% positive feedback, save for one negative for nondelivery on 12/18/10.


  1. I filed a complaint on Etsy about not receiving products and was informed when she did not respond that she was banned from selling. So either just my report caused the banning or she was already banned, or this was the straw that broke the camels back of many complaints.

    From what I can telling Working Girl cosmetics is hers, but someone else is doing the shipping etc....

  2. Kira-Thanks so much for that info about Etsy. I will be sure to add it as additional information when contacted regarding the numerous complaints I filed.

    Did you receive a refund for your undelivered product? If so, was it through a Paypal dispute or some other means?

  3. Lela's Glittersniffer Etsy account was removed as a result of her linking customers to her outside website and nothing more sinister (Etsy doesn't like outside links at ALL which is another complaint altogether).

    Working Girl is Lela's, but the operations are handled by another person. I don't know how much of the trouble transfers over, but I only purchased from WG once since the products were, like GS's, grainy and pebbly / unmixed.

  4. Krissi-Thanks so much for the clarification on WGC and why GS is no longer on Etsy. I really try to stay away from speculation and stick to facts, so it's good to know what really happened.
