Others Experiences

An update and more stories about GlitterSniffer Cosmetics from others. Again, all identifying information has been removed. Thank you to everyone for sharing.

This is an updated photo of the first story related here. She is still suffering effects months after discontinuing use of GlitterSniffer Cosmetics:


Another story detailing ill effects, including a hospital stay. Some of the effects were from usage of GlitterSniffer Cosmetics soap:
I thought that I'd share what happened to my girlfriend and I concerning glittersniffer. My girlfriend was a fan of theirs for awhile before she bought a huge amount of colours, and when they arrived half of them were missing. I guess after everything we should be grateful for getting anything! Well, my girlfriend is allergic to carmine and is vegan, so therefor she asked beforehand if it contained any and if it was so, and she was told that no there was no carmine in the colors she was receiving and that they were indeed vegan and cruelty free. So she took her word on it and bought it. Immediately after applying her new eyeshadow, her eyes were swollen shut and her face was puffy, she ended up spending several days in the hospital being treated. The eyeshadow obviously did contain carmine to trigger such a severe reaction and obviously was not vegan. I myself had an infection after using glittersniffer cosmetics as well as a rash from one of their soaps. After complaining very politely I might add, and asking for a refund we were pretty much told no and that that was the risk we took of buying makeup offline and such. I can do my best to see if I can find the emails. The only good thing that I can say is that paypal has deemed in my favour of a refund.
 From an email January 24, 2011:
I just wanted to let you know that I have basically been a lurker of the fb page and the blog. Seeing all this go down made me contact paypal today regarding a possible refund from my November 7, 2010 purchase of the Pressure Sensitive Collection from Lela. I have had some issues with burning of my eyes, but nothing like some of the other women have experienced. You can also literally see the pieces of glitter in the pots. It kind of reminded me of glitter from a craft store that you use for art projects. Some of the pots are sealed with a sticky thing over them, some are not.
The rep I spoke to was also named redacted. I called at 1:20pm eastern time to the (402) 935-2050 phone number. She had told me that they will definitely file my dispute/claim and if enough complaints were issued, there is a good chance everyone will be refunded.

redacted ,
If you would like an in depth explanation, please call me. I cannot refund
anyone until my PayPal is unlocked. That is not a process I can speed up.

If you don't have the time to call me I won't have time to investigate this any further and I'll have to deny your request for a refund.

  2. She has plenty of time to type all sorts of stuff, but needs this to go to a phonecall.. yeah. Like anyone wants to go from quotable emails to phone calls, the way she lies. Good thing she told everyone her state only requires one-party consent to recording a phone call though. So long as the person calling is somewhere with the same rules, I guess!

  3. Rememeber when Lela said no one had PROOF of their claims against her pigments being potentially hazardous and anything from an allergic reaction to blindness could result if her pigments were used?
    ...Is this enough proof for her? I can't even believe she Is still recieving funds from people claiming to be adults. No educated adult would purchase from her after viewing the ingredient and "may contain" ingredient list...AND after seeing these photos of the health hazard that is the result of GS cosmetics.
