Now a days more and more counterfeit products are being sold because reality-wise there is a market for those things. However, what about those who are against fake products? Some of them fall victims to this awful money making scheme.

One of the brands that are being continuously imitated by makers of counterfeit makeup is M.A.C. Usually the price of a dupe M.A.C cosmetics, which is unusually very low, is a dead giveaway or the most obvious indication that it is not the real thing. However, there are even more stubborn sellers who would sell these fake ones at a price similar to the authentic counterpart and that's a rip off, is it not?

Some would go as far as saying that the reason they can sell these fakes at a low price is because they bought it online in bulk--aka wholesale. Don 't fall for it.

As the official M.A.C website would define it, the counterfeit version is actually an illegal imitation. Often the intention is to deceive buyers as they take advantage of the name and value of the product being copied. 

Because counterfeit M.A.C makeup often lack the superior quality, there is a chance that the fake version will have an reaction to the wearer's skin.

In effort to protect their customer's and their name, M.A.C says that they do not sell its products through individuals, street vendors, flea markets, internet auctions, independent boutiques or unauthorized online retailers. In short, the company only distributes its cosmetics through their official website or their official retailers. The company also does wholesale its products online.
