I work at a general department store. Every year for the past few years now we have had to mark loads of those big cosmetic generic "gift" sets down to next to nothing after Christmas because most people have caught onto the fact that the make-up in them is poor-quality, China made, junk.

When they get cheap enough, there's always a few clueless people who stock up on them to put away to give as "Gifts for next year". This makes me chuckle a little. Great, everyone wants a gift of crap make-up that's been sitting around getting stale for a year. The trunk cases or decorative boxes this make-up comes in is probably worth more than the make-up inside.
