Counterfeit make-up may look like the original product on the surface, but patients need to beware of the imitations as they could pay dearly for this, health-wise.

I just recently transitioned to using lippies. I saw the light with Colourpop haha. Well Kylie and Colourpop are made by the same manufacturers apparently. Kylie is just more expensive because of the endorser. Those lippies actually are quite difficult to remove hehe. You would need makeup remover to take them cleanly off.

Maria Cristina Inserto: Maybe it was excreta haha. I am particular with makeup myself as my skin is quite sensitive as well. I prefer Korean brands like Etude, Face shop, and Innisfree and for non-Korean Maybeline and Bareminerals. I lately have been going extra crazy over Colourpop though.

This also goes for perfumes. Its just a good thing that I'm too lazy to ap...

"Everyone likes to be frugal"- This is such a female mantra. We may buy a bunch of shoes, make up, or bags but we budget. I have to admit that I did buy counterfeit make up once and tried it out for a bit. They look well packaged and the product is not half bad, but you are just kidding yourself with this. We are aware that these products may contain large amount of heavy metals but rat and human excreta really draws the line! I obviously threw away the two products. Ek! I have encount...
