Today’s topic is Counterfeit Makeup! It’s out there and it’s real…real fake that is. It’s a scary thought knowing fake makeup is out there. Especially now where makeup has gone into full gear with social media. Eyeshadow palettes sell out so quickly now in days that sometimes we don’t have enough time to get our hands on the makeup we want. So what do some of us do? Look else where and we stumble upon too good to be prices. I think we all get tempted. Maybe someone was feeling generous and really wants to sell authentic makeup for 35% off?? Please Makeup Gods let this be true! Well I hate to break it to you but it is most likely not true. Here’s how you can save yourself from the fakes when buying online.
- If the price is too good to be true & it isn’t from a major department store or from the actual makeup brand that produces the product it’s a fake.
- The packaging is always a giveaway. Now be careful because they might steal professional images from the actual makeup brands. Make sure its a picture that the website/seller took of the product.
- Buy from a reputable website/buyer. Don’t just go to a random website or buy from a random person. Do your research!
- Be patient. I know it’s hard when you want a palette or lipstick that everyone is talking about but if its popular it might be restocked. Luckily there are a lot of great dupes for products.
*Note- A dupe is a product that is almost identical to a more expensive product that costs less.*
