GlitterSniffer Cosmetics: Back in Business?

There have been new developments in the past few hours with GlitterSniffer Cosmetics proprietor Lela Warren.

Though the GlitterSniffer Cosmetics and GlitterSniffer Bath Artfires are still empty it seems that proprietor Lela Warren is back to distributing her wares.

It appears however, that though sales via Artfire have stopped, distribution has not. From Lela Warren's personal Facebook Page, now reopened to comments:

A thank you for support for sales made yesterday, a plea for more oils to possibly produce more product, and, once again, in probable violation of Facebook TOS (on a profile that apparently violates Facebook TOS by simply existing), sales for soap.

One could take this as a matter of the company attempting to move forward with only personal care items and not cosmetics. Except there is this.

Listia is an online marketplace where people can list things for free and buy things with credits earned for signing up and 'selling' their own listings. Apart from shipping, it appears that no money will be changing hands for this transaction. There is no word yet on how the shipping will be paid as last reported GS and Lela Warren had no payment processor.

When the listing was found there were people who voiced their concerns. I am including the screeenshots of these comments, though you will not be able to see most of them. They have been hidden from view, and those that posted have been blocked from bidding. There are some comments that are now hidden that were able to be screenshotted prior to their being hidden.

The practice of hiding comments that don't agree with the listing is akin to the deletions that ran rampant on the GS Fan Page. And Lela Warren's response to the FDA question?

I will be following up as new information develops. I still have my interview with FDA to coordinate, as well as a followup with TWLOHA on July 9, 2011 to see if the six month timeline for remittance of the charity funds has been met, and a spot check on July 29, 2011 to see if anyone has begun receiving refunds yet. That date is the day after the Paypal funds are supposed to be released.

Thank you to everyone who provided screenshots and information, and a huge debt of thanks to KimmieKarma for the Listia link.

7:29 PM CST ETA:

Listia has removed the listing.

6/20/11 ETA: Correct spelling of Lela Warren's last name in first paragraph. 


  1. Oy, When will the saga end. Crap this is longer than Dune, just as frustrating, but more interesting. The glitter must flow apparently.
