I didn't buy any of the powder compacts this year for the very same reason.

I informed my SA that I didn't see any reason to pay retail when I could buy them on ebay for a fraction of the price. In years past you had to wait maybe 6 months to get them “on sale” now they are on ebay as soon as they come out{ note the nutcracker and others}. I have spoken to everyone at EL from the top to the bottom and it falls on deaf ears. I now just buy what I like and as cheap as I can find them. Wholesale has become my middle name. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

As for as ” freshness ” of the product. I have solids from 1969 that are still fresh and some from 2005 that are not,so freshness is not a consideration .And powder compacts don't get old and if they did refills {powder only} are very easy to get .

On a lighter note– We are going to put some Christmas photos on the board in the upcoming days so stay tuned. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
