Lamerton pleaded guilty to seven trading standards offences and narrowly avoided jail with a suspended sentence. For each offence he was given six weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months. The sentences will run concurrently. Julian Jefferson, mitigating, said Lamerton had given up his job to care for his terminally ill wife and had started selling goods online to earn "a few extra quid".
He added that Lamerton was truly remorseful for what he had done and would not be buying and selling fake goods online again. Nakakahiya yun pag nagkataon! Very very helpful post. Beauty bloggers really help each other! More power! I don't know why they have to fake MAC Cosmetics and other high end branded makeup for that matter..
So they could attract buyers with the ridiculously cheap price and with name? The people they've embezzled could have their skin condition ruined because of their fraud..
Thanks for this post by the way, now we're aware of how can we detect fake products :D. Grabe, nagkalat na sila! Meron pa nga akong nakita lumabas na fake from different collections ng Mac. Thank you for this post! I don't know how to spot fake mac from authentic ones.. I received a pencil case-like MAC collection. It includes eyeshadow, gloss, mascara and another one. It all came from the US. I also received another lipstick and a MAC brand as well. I hope, it's not fake after all.. Rose: hello and welcome to TBJ! Just buy from MAC na lang.
How to Spot a Fake MAC Cosmetics Product. When looking at an online posting for makeup, observe the pictures closely to see how much. Batchcode: The batch code of MAC's products are almost invisible in pictures. Font color is sheer black. On the other hand, the fake MSF's.
Well, it's still business and money. And what sucks is, people care about these than other people.
Yep, nagkalat po ang mga fake mac products online, they keep on saying na from Singapore nga daw po kaya mas mura. Thank you for sharing this once again Ms. Mahirap palang i-distinguish ang fake sa original at first. Buti nalang bloggers are very 'mausisa' and you guys really know that REAL ones.
Good thing wala akong MAC lol I hope to get clearer photos of it! I just recently bought "MAC" mascara from a Facebook shop. I KNOW now that that move was very stupid. I'm not very knowledgeable with make-up products, so when I saw this cheap "MAC" mascara, I went for it.
I didn't even know people made fake MAC products. Plus, on top of that, when I asked someone I know who has real MAC products she said some people sell them cheap bc they might have gotten them directly from blah blah.
If only I had known. Bad news: the person who sold it to me is a friend of a friend. Good news: at least I didn't spend too much on it. Sayang lang. I stumbled in her page when she held a give-away contest. The nerve diba na ipapremyo niya ung MAC products nia eh fake naman pala.
To be sure I'll just buy from authorized sellers in the mall. These counterfeiters are getting really good at fooling people.
I agree with dun sa nagcomment ng sana bumili na lang tayo ng authentic na gawang pinas kung di man afford makabili ng mahal na cosmetics. At least na QA check yun, at trusted naman siguro ingredients na ginamit nila coz if not, di papayag ang DFA na magsell nun. Lets all be careful din kasi we apply these products on our face, mamaya may toxic ingredient pala yung fake, etc.
Kakabili q lng 3 days ago. Dko agad nakita to. Ngayon ko lang narealize na fake pla nabili q. I saw one on MOA, pero parang natatakot na aq bumili. Saw one at the Supersale Bazaar yesterday. Nakakaloko lang esp if they say the items are authentic. Good thing I've read this one. I was supposed to buy from a kiosk in Festival this weekend. They also say na it's from Canada.
Jamie wouldn't tell me as well eh. It's really best to get MAC from the authorized store na lang just to be safe and sure. Great post!
I never thought that there are fake MAC products. Now I know how to distinguish one. Thanks for sharing! I guess we should just be extra careful when buying in sites like ebay. I shop there often too but I always check the seller's feedback score. Hi there and thank you for making a blog on this topic. Infairvarona: Hi and sorry for the dated reply! Welcome to tbj!
I'm not sure if this one's authentic. It's hard to tell because the product looks exactly just like the original Benetint! If they have, they would state otherwise.
I was shocked. It's really nice to find more bloggers talking about this and warning their readers about these kind of sellers. Hi Ami, Nice post. I will go check. For example, the MAC logo is usually centered on its genuine products but a counterfeit may position the logo at the top or toward the bottom. Arlette Alvarado February 25, at AM.
Oh my!!! Even MAC have fake ones? How about the lipstick? How can you tell?
