Remember the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Light on my previous posts that even became part of my Current Favorites last February? Yes, that one. It is FAKE. I liked it initially but that didn't last long so I sold it. And unfortunately and fortunately, the person who purchased it is much more aware of the fake MAC circulating in the market and is much more vigilant when it comes to such products. Unfortunate that she got the MAC MSF from me and fortunately, she informed me and now I know I also got a fake one.
Sadly though, I have stopped using MAC products a couple of years ago and I have never used a MAC MSF before - just the blushes, blot powder, studio fix, lipsticks, lip glasses and brushes,all of which I have all purchased from the store - so I am not familiar with the qualities of the MSF Natural and simply relied heavily on the sellers' positive feedback. Yes, I know that it's no longer safe to buy such products online but little did I know that these darn (pardon my language) counterfeiters are getting damn good at it! I used to think that I can tell fake makeup just by looking at the pictures but I guess that is no longer the case.
If you need to know more about FAKE MAC MSFs being sold online at almost the same cost as the authentic ones in stores (just a couple of hundreds cheaper though), please go to this post by Jaime of Mizzmakeup.
Embarrassing as it may seem, I was duped. Lesson learned, though. :)
Have a blessed Sunday and an awesome week ahead, everyone. :)
