Because cosmetics and makeup products have a limited shelf life, cosmetics retailers need to be quick on their feet and sell all their makeup inventories fast. But because of consumer preferences and a limited market, it’s not that easy. Chances are, retailers have a space in their warehouses filled with makeup products that are no longer in circulation — just collecting dust, adding clutter, and hindering a steady cash flow.

While your overstock cosmetics and makeup products may seem like lost causes and unrealized income, you can still recoup your ROI and redeem your overhead by selling your overstock inventory to cosmetics and makeup liquidators. Closeout Express can get your excess and unprofitable inventory out of your hands — for a good price! 

Types of Liquidation Cosmetics

While it’s no longer in your store’s interest to recirculate unprofitable products on store shelves, there is still a market for liquidated cosmetics and makeup. These can be sold to closeout buyers, who will then resell the products at a cheaper price to discount stores. These outlets put liquidated cosmetics back on retail shelves for a specific consumer market.

Liquidation cosmetics can come from three main sources: cosmetic shelf pulls, overstock cosmetics wholesale, and excess distributor inventory. 

Cosmetic Shelf Pulls

Liquidated cosmetics and makeup are the results of shelf pull from cosmetics brands or retailers who want to make space in their inventory for new and more profitable products. Instead of holding a clearance sale, retailers can sell their overstock inventory to cosmetics liquidators who take charge of putting the products back in the market. 

Overstock Cosmetics Wholesale

In other instances, retailers purchase huge bulks of cosmetics and makeup products that never get a chance to be displayed on store shelves because of logistics or marketing reasons. Instead of letting these brand new products collect dust in their warehouses, retailers can turn them over to liquidators who then resell the products to discount stores or other closeout buyers. 

Excess Distributor Inventory

When selling products that have a limited shelf life, retailers need to be smart and accurate about how much they purchase. But often, it’s difficult to predict how well a product will sell. Because of this, retailers often purchase excess stock that is significantly more than the demand. 

To get the excess out of their warehouses and inventories, they can opt to sell them to cosmetics liquidators. This helps them recoup their investments and make room for newer items. The excess inventory can still be put in the market for sale, heading to discount stores to put them back on store shelves. 

Why Sell Bulk Lots of Makeup to Closeout Companies?

Makeup products and cosmetics only have a limited shelf life. Depending on the type of product, whether foundation, lipsticks, eyeliners, or mascaras, makeup can last about two to three years, provided that they are stored in cool, dry places and are unopened and completely sealed. Products that contain butter or oil as ingredients have a shorter lifespan because the formulation can lose its potency over time. 

Retailers need to sell these products fast before they lose their quality and value — and before a new product comes along. Those who are unable to sell the entirety of their makeup inventory end up transporting them back to warehouses and ending circulation. This unrealized profit, however, can take a toll on their inventories and cash flow, and even cost them maintenance and storage expenses. 

Retailers need to be able to recoup their initial investments. A smart decision would be to sell their overstock and excess inventory to cosmetics liquidators, who can pay a good price and help get these products back in circulation. Closeout Express takes these unprofitable products out of your hands so you can focus more on those that sell and redeem your overhead. 

Are Bulk Makeup Products Safe?

Yes. Bulk makeup products that are resold in discount stores or by liquidators are brand new and completely sealed. They are not pulled from retailers’ shelves for safety or health reasons, instead, common reasons include: 

  • The product is no longer in season
  • There are new products that are priorities to sell 
  • The product is no longer selling on retail shelves 
  • The retailer’s supply supersedes the demand 

Cosmetics liquidators and discount stores realize that there may still be a market for these products, making an effort to redistribute them. Products that are not safe to use are disposed of and stopped in circulation.
