High end makeup is becoming increasingly more expensive and drugstore makeup isn’t too far behind. Luxury brands like Chanel, Dior, Tom Ford are coveted but they cost an arm and a leg; unfortunately, a lot of us makeup lovers can’t afford high end makeup but we want to try them.
Counterfeit makeup offers a simple low cost solution- you can buy them at a fraction of the real thing and they look almost exactly alike. So they should function the same, right? Well, no. The amount of detail dedicated towards the packaging of the product is not devoted towards the product itself. The result is unpigmented, chalky, and overall useless product. Not to mention, the strong possibility of them containing bad chemicals like lead and even feces.
