M.A.C is one of the most popular makeup brands currently on the market. The reason for this is because the price is low enough that a high school kid can easily afford it after a few hours paycheck, and yet, the quality is good enough for people on the higher end of the social class to desire it. M.A.C makeup is also on of the most seen makeup brands used in those YouTube makeup tutorials that everyone just loves. The makeup tutorial, XSparkage, that I feature on a regular basis is hosted by a woman who used to be a makeup artist in M.A.C stores and always uses their collection.
But like anything of value, and more expensive then a pair of socks, you run the risk of fakes. No longer are fakes just used in designer bags and rolexes. In the past few years there has been a market for fake M.A.C growing and there is a good chance that the M.A.C makeup currently in your purse may not even be the real stuff. Not only does one not like the fake because it is deceiving, but the fake causes slight irritation and is more prone to giving allergic reactions.
Spot a Fake M.A.C
- Eyeshadows will never come with an type of application tool.
- Pictures will always be on the bottom of the package and will never be blurry.
- The item will always have a name, not a number.
- Fonts on the front of the item will be small and in the corner, a fake will have bigger font in the center.
Here are some of the easiest ways to spot a face M.A.C, but an almost sure fire way to always know that you have an authentic M.A.C is to buy it from from your local M.A.C cosmetic store.
