I\'d like to see the beautytap editors weigh in on whether anyone has ever placed an order for this and similarly stratospherically highly priced items... Jude Chao can we make this happen?

annapark

For me, that's a resounding NO. But shockingly there are people who apparently place orders!

dragok

WOW!

OK, I've figured out how we can do it! If 40 of us pay $27.50 each, we can each use an 1ml and then send it to the next person.... 😉😉😉😉😉

What could go wrong??? 😉 😘

dragok

Lol! Indeed, what could possibly go wrong!

Jane Heur

dragok
