Fake brand name makeup products?

Hey ppl,

I recently just started browsing Ebay for MAC makeup for deals. I'm just wondering how common it is for brand name makeup products to be faked as well? And also, how do you tell if a product is the real thing or if it's fake? I have no idea at all. I mostly buy directly from retail stores.

I would just go to the store or their official website. I've never bought beauty products online. Like shoppy said, makeup is faked...and who knows what ingredients are in the fake products...

A lot of it is fake. There are some authentic items though, but buy in stores to be safe

Even when the product is real, you could get a foundation that has been sitting out on the shelf for years! Unless you have no choice (item was a limited edition, can't find at stores, etc.) you should buy from the store/counter directly just to be safe.
