Ive noticed the local Facebook selling pages have ramped up sales of fake products as Christmas gets closer..

Things like Mac Makeup, Ugg Boots, GHD Straighteners etc..

I like to point out to people that these products are indeed Fakes, but i find the comments very strange, the attitude some people take..

so for instance.

Guy selling some Mac Lipstick which retails at about £15.00 but he sells it for £8..

If Its pointed out its fake the usual comments are along the lines of

"Yeah but its half the price"

They cannot seem to understand that they could buy the exact same product thats being sold for £1.00 at poundland minus the fraudulent branding..

Its like even though they know its fake, that its not actually genuine lipstick in this instance they still want it because it has some fake branding on it...

even when its pointed out the lipstick might burn their lips off, or the straighteners are a 3rd degree burn waiting to happen they do not care..

I do not understand the mentality of someone who would rather spend £75 on fake GHD's than £30.00 on Superdrug's own or £150 on Real GHD's why is that fake more appealing than both of the others?

What worries most is what is in these products, I won't use fake simply for that alone.

Yeah its seems common sense for most people is enough.. but some people seem to not care so if they do not care, why not just buy cheap stuff from superdrug's or boots, but they cant seem to work around the branding thing, but aren't willing to pay full price for the real deal..

I just find it really weird.

Whats wrong is..

they could get some generic sheepskin boots from shoe zone for £10.00 or they could go and spend £130.00 for some real Ugg's

so who chooses to buy £80.00 generics with an Ugg label?

also a lot of these sellers make out they are genuine.

What the hell you on about....If they see something for £150 genuine and they find a replica/fake but can't splash out and want the label and THEY KNOW it's fake for £50 then it's up to them if they want it or not.

OK calm down first of all, this is just a discussion.. I am saying I do not understand that mentality..

The fact that most of these items have dangerous levels of chemicals in them.

Because they can't afford the real thing but want to appear (to others) as though they can. Never understood it myself either tbh.

It's ok for you. You don't need lipstick, uggs and GHDs to look gorgeous. ;)

Maybe clothing isn't so bad but electronics and cosmetics is just plain stupid, yuk, I wanted a certain brand of lip stick for Xmas and told my BF he has to go in to boots or super drug to get it as there are so many fakes online it's hard to know what's real , and you gotta put that on your mouth ??? Anything could be in it

Oh, sorry, yeah...

To be fair, "anything" could be in the real product too.

It's always the people on council estates with a low income who buy these things trying to pretend to the rest of the street that they are better than them. Lol.

Not my experience. I know plenty of middle class people who buy fake clothing and watches. Some of them are really good quality items. But they are still paying more than they are worth just because the item has a label on it.

I'm very careful, I never buy online but go to the high street shop instead.

Buying counterfeit football shirts/kits is the one that gets me.

If you support a team then wouldn't you want them to receive your money instead of giving it to people who have no affiliation with the club?

Last year i ended up buying fake cosmetics and it was from boots. And they refused me a refund because they say it was clearly marked fake tan.
