With there being soooo many beauty must haves, some people jump on to the scene by producing fakes. Often people buy these fakes believing they are the real deal wasting their money on a substandard product. However, there are some people out there who actually want the fakes as a.) they can’t afford the real deal or b.) can’t get hold of the real product, so settle. I don’t settle when it comes to my face and neither should you!
But, what’s wrong with buying a fake?
-The fake will not be as good as the real deal. The longevity, formula and pigmentation won’t be as good. Meaning you won’t look as good!
-It could contain harmful ingredients which haven’t been approved for use.
-It hasn’t had the same quality control and safety tests, the real product would have had.
-The product may have been tested on animals, whereas the original (real version) may not have been.
How do you spot a fake?
-Ask yourself is this amazing deal from a reputable seller?
-Beware of the sellers who claim to be the only ones out there who sell this product as they got it in bulk. Lies, lies lies!
-Are the pictures clear? Does the product look like the real deal? The product will often look similar, but have a slight difference such as a different font or a missing logo.
-Is the price similar/same as the real deal? I saw a Kylie Lip Kit going for £3.99 on Ebay, definitely a fake!
–Does the real company even sell the product? I’ve seen sellers on Ebay selling singles of Kourt K, which if you are a fan you will know is not an option to buy from Kylie Cosmetics.
Have you been fooled into buying a fake? Where did you get this fake from?- Leave a comment to let me know!
