    Beware fake MAC products

    Went to my local outdoor market and a lady there was selling quite high end makeup (e.g. dior mascara, bobbi brown and MAC makeup).

    I purchased some MAC pigment at £4 - bargain price I thought (rrp £14) but later found out it was FAKE!

    There's a good video on youtube explaining how to discover fake MAC products - tip is, if the makeup does not have the 'name' of the colour (e.g. girlie pink) then its not real.

    I was GUTTED! Just goes to show - if it seems too good to be true, probably is

    I never trust markets to be honest.

    The stall alway's seems to disappear if there is a problem.

    I would say the 1st clue was that you bought it at a market.

    I tried it out a few days ago - and surprisingly it was quite good! I don't know whether it was worth £4 though, because the way I see it, if it was a 'generic' brand I would probably pay £2 for the tub of pigment? (especially given market prices) Still, I guess its some consolation that the colours are really nice and it applies well?!
