They list rules in several different places, and here is where it mentions CPs:
Q: What are the guidelines for what can and can't be posted in the swap section?
A: Prescription items are not allowed on MakeupAlley swap board Listing prices (selling, retail, reference, etc.) is not allowed ANYWHERE on the swap board including the Item Title Line, Item Description and Notepad. Links to selling on Ebay or any affiliate programs are not allowed. Swapping burned CDs/DVDs is not allowed. The Swap Board is ONLY for posting Swap items (not Custom Purchases, Other Arrangements or any other notices). Violators may be removed/suspended without notice.
They do say elsewhere that people may come to various agreements privately:
Can I post a gift card in the swap section or ask for a gift card in my wish list?No. The swap section is not intended for selling. Posting a gift card is equivalent to offering cash and asking for a gift card in your wish list or in a swap item is equivalent to asking for cash. The swap section is intended for swapping items, not buying them. We understand that in certain situations individuals might come to work out a different agreement privately, and we leave that between the two parties, however we ask that the posted swap items, notepads, and wish lists respect the guidelines and the intention of the MUA swap section.
In my experience some people are open to such things and some are not, and I have read about people getting reported who proposed OA to someone who was not receptive to that.
To get back on topic...has anybody here gotten Sky Line? I keep going back and forth on what I think of it.
