Now years later when I heard all this fuss about MAC, I was like hang on, I’ve heard it somewhere and then with a bang realised that not only I’ve heard MAC…I even own MAC!
|fake Mac palette|
I immediately searched their site and obviously they didnt have any such palette…..and now I have a fake with me! I was sad because it was my first palette and happy because I anyway didnt like it in the first place.
The colors are too much glittery and shimmery for my taste. Also they are difficult to blend. You can see I got mad on them in my vain to make use of it but they are sooo…. “useless” is the word!
And you know whats the most funny part? It costed me Rs.280, as you can see in the second picture above.
So I went again to that shop “undercover” to see if they still sell “those MAC products” and alaas! They still did!! Now when I was fully prepared and had my gk in place I found MAC Studio Fix foundation, c oncealer, MAC pressed powders, MAC pro long wear foundation and believe me the list was endless. I so much wanted to click some pics but could not. So instead I played around and my “spy” eyes spotted a SMASHBOX eye pencil.
When I asked the SA to show it to me, he gladly did and swatched it on my hand. This one I bought to show you people. He sold it to me for Rs.30! He said I can fill in my eyebrows with it, I’m anyway not going to use something this black on my eyebrows, it looks totally unnatural.
One should never use these products. You can easily get some skin allergies, patches, pigmentation, etc etc.
There are loads of videos on YouTube which can tell you the tricks by which you can spot the fakes of these high end brands.
Hope it helps and saves you from being cheated.
