If you`ve bought or are thinking about buying `MAC` cosmetics from someone online or in person or anywhere except a reputable store then I would highly recommend reading this..
So I decided to do a post on something that I feel strongly about. I know a lot of people have done posts on this but at the end of the day, the more awareness it gets the better! What am I talking about? Fake MAC cosmetics!
I really dont know where to start with this topic to be completely honest! There is so much I could say about this subject but I`ll try to keep it short and sweet!
For the past year I`ve seen so many people selling `MAC` makeup on not only eBay but also Facebook and it makes me so angry. I dont understand how someone can knowingly scam people into giving them money for these pieces of crap. These people haven`t been shown or told how to identify from fakes or may not even be aware that people fake makeup brands and honestly believe they are getting a bargain.
BUT remember, price is not always an indication of whether it is fake or not. Some sellers have the audacity to take 5 euro off the price of a real product and sell the fake at that price which I just find ridiculous and plain greedy.
Not only is this makeup usually awful quality but its also extremely dangerous! If you think about it, these cosmetics are coming from China and the likes and for all we know they`re being made in huge tin vats some guys garage (Ok I may be exaggerating but you get what I mean!). These cosmetics have not passed ANY health and safety regulations and could contain some really harmful chemicals.
I was recently reading an article on Beaut.ie which you can read here: http://beaut.ie/blog/2012/the-perils-of-fake-cosmetics-a-beaut-ie-reader-tells-of-skin-damage-long-lasting-effects/
It tells the story of how one Beaut.ie reader had awful lifelong skin damage from using these fake MAC cosmetics. I wont go into too much detail as you can read the article on Beaut.ie.
Is your skins health worth risking for saving a few euro on MAC makeup or to have a logo in your makeup bag? You dont even have to buy MAC makeup, there are so many good cheaper SAFER brands out there. Personally, Id much rather save for one MAC product than buy 5 cheap fake ones that could potentially damage my skin for life.
Just something for you to think about.
Currently in Ireland, (as far as I am aware) the only place you will be guaranteed real MAC makeup is Brown Thomas and BT2.
Im not too familiar with all the places you can get it in the UK but if you go to http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/locator you will find all the stockists listed there.
