Others Experiences

I received an email today from a person who wishes to remain anonymous. They shared photos of an eye injury incurred while using GlitterSniffer Cosmetics. Here is their story.
I have declined to say anything about my own situation until exploring all of my possible options and deciding on a resolution.  At this time, I would like to share my own "GlitterSniffer" injuries.  I have explored several options, and finally feel comfortable sharing my photos, but only behind the alias here.  The "safe" company that Lela Warren represents caused me great pain, loaded me up with medical expenses, and of course damaged my trust for "indie" companies in general. The use of her cosmetics resulted in a very serious tissue infection.  Luckily, it was only one eye, and I have completely healed at this point.  These photos cannot remain a secret, and I feel that the time is right to share them.

I would like to thank the anonymous emailer, and so many others, for sharing. Hopefully this information can assist in people making a safe, informed decision.

It should be noted that although GlitterSniffer Cosmetics is an "indie" company they do not represent "indie" as a whole. It's an important distinction. These stories are about one company's actions and their incredibly damaging results. People have a right to know this information, and it is a rough situation for all "indie" makeup sellers that they may have to overcome the fallout from this when they are following the rules and guidelines. Be safe. Be informed. GS is not all "indie". That their actions may have caused irreparable damage to those that follow the rules is but one more unfortunate consequence of their business decisions.


  1. How the hell is she still in business? How can she look at these photos and not feel an ounce of guilt?

  2. To whomever this is pictured above, I am so sorry you had to endure this pain. I'm glad your eye has healed.

  3. Thank you ladies for your concern. It's been a long road, and I hope that by sharing I spare anyone else from this type of injury.

  4. This image renders me speechless. I'm relieved that you have healed.

  5. I am so sorry for this ex customer. My eye too became swollen, first he first time EVER after my FIRST use of glitter sniffer cosmetics. I was so pissed. Luckily mine was not an infection....JUST A SCRAPPED CORNIA. The glitter she put in one of my eye shadows scratched my cornia and I couldn't wear my contacts for over a week. luckily I was able to recieve a refund via pay pal (as my purchase was made just days prior to the paypal being closed). I hope some sort of legal action is taken against her soon, and she is stopped.

  6. I am beyond shocked and hurt that this person has gone through this much pain and Lela feels nothing and remains in business. Something must be done. My own injury pales in comparison to this, and I agree that I hope she is stopped soon.
