How to Spot FakeCosmetics

How to Spot Fake NARS Cosmetics

  • Nars does not make three pan palettes. (Although I just saw trio palettes on Nars website)
  • Nars never writes their name on their products.
  • Be careful for different names on the duos you purchase as well as numbers on the back in circles. Please make sure that the seller gives a name to the duos. ALL duos have names, not numbers. If they can’t give you a name or there isn’t one in their auction, beware. This auction didn’t have a name to any of their duos listed.
  • Also, go to a site that sells nars such as sephora.com or narscosmetics.com and do research on the color you are buying. I have seen colors on here that nars doesn’t even make. If you find  a bohemian gold duo here on Ebay, make sure that the color of the duo you want to purchase is the same as on the sephora or the nars website.

How to Spot Fake Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

  • Genuine Bobbi Brown palettes always have proper B.B. brushes with their logo! Fake palettes have these plain black, cheap sponge applicators.
  • Authentic B.Brown palettes always have proper names on the box such as surf & sand, pink raspberry & mauve face. The fake palettes DON’T have these names just some madeup title such as 12 colours eyeshadow palette or Eyeshadows Palette 12colour shimmer 02!
  • Authentic B.B palettes, will always have on the back of the box proper names of the shades such as bare, nude, buff, cocoa.. Fakes will have :brown, gold, copper etc you get my meaning! Always ask the seller prior to bidding about the EXACT names of these shades!
  • the box of the product says it is made in Italy but the label on the actual product says it is made in Canada.
  • The label on the product says the name of the product is Long-Wear Cream Shadow whereas on the box it says Fluidline Eye Liner Gel.
  • The label on the product says the color is BURNISHED but when I checked on bobbi brown official website, ‘Burnished’ is a bronzed brown color instead of Black

    Step 3 : Set the kohl with matte black eye shadow

    Do not swipe/wipe the eye shadow, use a patting motion to apply the eye shadow. Do not go much beyond the crease. Apply the black eye shadow to the lower lash line too.

    Step 5 : Apply the shimmery brown/copper eye shadow.

    Pat the eye shadow so that the base we have created is not disturbed/wiped off with the brush. You can either apply a small amount of eye shadow to let some of the black show thorough or apply it densely. I have applied it densely here.

    Apply the same eye shadow to outer 3/4th of lower lash line too.
