Considering that cosmetics can be quite costly and shoppers don't always find a perfect match with each purchase, Glambot was launched as a start-up that will sell old makeup products submitted by users, who can then get a small profit back in return.

Although many people are quick to ask about how sanitary this practice is, it's not as bad as it initially sounds. Glambot accepts used makeup, sanitizes it and repackages it for sale at a discounted price online. Considering that the products submitted range from half-full bottles of foundation to untouched lipsticks, this is a genius way to make or save money when strapped for cash.

In the same way that cosmetics are often passed on between friends and siblings, Glambot makes it possible to purchase pre-owned cosmetics from the beauty community.
