Fake makeup is becoming more and more popular along with becoming a lot harder to spot and tell the difference. It's only if you know what you are looking for that you can really tell if there a fake or not. The only way you can really tell if something is real or not is to get it from an authorised dealer! For example:Never buy big brand makeup such as benefit or mac from Ebay. Chances are your getting something with a bunch of shitty chemicals in and if you had paid a few more £ could have saved yourself from going blind.
Can you spot the fake out of these pictures below?
Here's a few tips in how you can tell if you have the real thing!
Smell: Real MAC has a sweet smell of vanilla to them where as fake ones smell of cheap plastic and give you a slight head ache if you sniff.
Packaging: The real mac lipstick is thinner and smaller. The colouring around the barrel is a lot brighter and looks more expensive.
Appearance: Counterfit lipsticks have a line going down the side of the product indicating where it has been joined. The real one tip is also in a tear drop sha
pe where as the other is more rounded. The stickers are also different.
