It turned out not to be a great bargain — the bustier is mint but the box is not the original. The solid was advertised with pouch and gold box but didn't specify ORIGINAL box. I think it was deliberately deceptive. Beware of ebay seller makeupdivas. 
I 'm still happy to finally have the bustier.


A similar thing just happened to me from another ebay seller.
She advertised the compact is in the gold box from Las Vegas and not the form fitted box. I knew that compacts were no longer in the form fitted box. I also know that all solid compacts have a label on the bottom of their box stating the name of the compact and the perfume in it. This had neither. So I called the Las Vegas EL store and spoke with a staff member there. It turned out the box I received the compact in is a generic gift box that is used to wrap any other item in their store and is finished off with a blue and gold ribbon with EL on it. I was told by the LV EL store rep. that ALL EL solid perfume compacts from their store come in the labeled gold box and white outer box.
Perhaps you all knew this, but I paid a hefty price for my lesson. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />
