Something about saleswomen at beauty counters scrutinizing my choice to return a
lipstick didn’t work for me (when she said it would look so great) has always triggered a swarm of butterflies in my stomach. But Natasha Singer reports I am far from alone in my fears.

A couple quick tips: whether it’s Neiman Marcus or Walgreens, know the policy
before you buy and ladies, keep the receipt. Also, give the net a try. Beauty.com offers refunds or credits on all unopened grooming products within 30 days of purchase.

At catcosmetics.com, makeup can be returned in any condition at any time. — By Joanne Molina of Second City Style Magazine
