Hello Everyone 🙂
Many of you have been mailing us or sending us DMs on Rati’s Instagram regarding the sale of MAC lipsticks by Rati so I thought I would write a post and put all information in a single place.
Over the years, Rati has bought a lot of MAC lipsticks from original MAC stores, both in India and abroad. Most of them were bought for review and swatch on IMBB. Save a few that she liked, Rati didn’t use most of these lipsticks and they were kept stored in boxes.
Since we are buying more and more makeup now in order to do swatches on Rati Beauty app, we are clearing out all our stuff. Which includes these lipsticks also. And we are selling them for Rs. 150 each (this price includes shipping or any other cost). The sale is exclusive to Rati Beauty app subscribers. You cannot participate in the sale or order the lipsticks if you are not a subscriber of the app. The sale is for Indian residents only. Sale would happen every month on a day that we’d announce on Rati’s Instagram and the Rati Beauty app. Before that, whatever lipstick Rati is selling, she would be putting swatches of those on the app so that you can choose what you like. The May month’s sale is on 26th May, Saturday at 5:00 pm inside the Rati Beauty app.
These lipsticks are pretty old may be 2-3 years or even older. These are in decent condition. None of them is broken or have any smell to it. That said, we would not suggest you to use them for a longer period of time. The reason we decided to do this sale is so that some of you can get a chance to try out a new shade or try out a MAC lipstick if you have never tried one. It’s more like sampling. Then may be you could go and buy a fresh new shade for yourself from the store. 🙂
The price for each lipstick is Rs 150 each. The payment would be through netbanking only. This price is mostly to cover the shipping and packaging charges. We really did not want to charge anything for the lipstick itself from you guys. The original price of each lipstick is Rs 1500.
These are all original lipsticks and all purchased from MAC stand alone stores in India and abroad. There would be no return or refunds once you buy the lipstick.
The MAC lipsticks sale is exclusive to our app ‘Rati Beauty’. You’d have to download the app and subscribe to it (Rs 390 per year).

The sale would happen every month. We’d announce the date and time of the sale on Instagram and Rati Beauty app. On the appointed time, the sale post would go up in the ‘Photo’ section of the app. Everyone can bid for the lipstick(s) they like. The sale happens on first-come-first-served basis. For any particular lipstick, we would compile the list of first bidder (commenter), second bidder (commenter) and third bidder (commenter). The first bidder would get a chance to buy the lipstick first. If the first bidder does not confirm the payment status within 12 hours, we would contact the second bidder and give her an option to buy. If the second bidder does not confirm the payment status within the next 12 hours, we would contact the third bidder and give her an option to buy.
Hope this clears any queries that you might have. 🙂
