Fake Urban Decay Makeup: Is this Naked 9 Powder for Real?

7:15 PM

Makeup lovers love a good deal on makeup. Who can resist 50% discount on a favorite beauty product. What if an box that says Naked by Urban Decay is being sold for only $10 and it says 5-in-1? Tempting is it not?

But wait, stop right there. Let us all consider the fact that counterfeit products are everywhere and merchants sell it by deceiving buyers with various reasons explaining its low price. Before buying makeup, even if you are going to buy if from a reputable store, you need to know how to spot fake Urban Decay makeup.

Obviously, fake Urban Decay counterparts are sold at overwhelmingly low prices. However, that is not your best measure. There are some swindlers who will try to rip you off with a high price tag if you are unsuspecting.

Therefore, you should start scrutinizing its box from the fonts of the label, the stickers, the logo, the color of the box. Everything. A slight imperfection in the logo is your red flag. If you want to see pictures of authentic Naken by Urban Decay cosmetics, I recommend Dollupmari.com. I stumbled across her website while doing a little research.

Okay, I am going to be honest. I got ripped off and I ended up buying 5-in-1 pressed powder. 5 IN 1 for $15? I should have given it a second thought but I was in a hurry, I got my hands full and I did not have time to look at it closely. I did not realize that I must have bought a dupe product until I got home. How did I let myself fall for it?

Here is the box.

On this side,  R and U on words Powder and Urban are so close together, while these words are apart on the next side.

The fonts used in the packaging is obviously questionable

Notice the irregular spacing of the letters

There is a lot of errors in the product description. And the website has a comma for a period between Urbandecay and com
And what in the world is Naked 9? I went to www.urbandecay.com and I did not find this product there. Not to mention, an authentice UB pressed powder sells for $34 so how could be 5 pressed powder cakes in one box sell for only $15. Sigh! My bad.

This is what it looks like outside of the box.

Oh look! The top is covered in plastic wrap, the same one used for food.

Take a look at the sides of the cake. It is not smooth.

And it comes in 5 different shades?
 It is unfortunate that I have spent money on something I now refuse to use. Is the fake urban decay makeup safe? I cannot tell at this point. There are some who have tried it and found it to be safe while some have reported that they got an allergic reaction.

I may or may not be wrong. There may be a legit 5 in 1 Urban Decay Naked 9 powder somewhere and I might just happen to have gotten the fake one. Needless to say I hope this article helps you in some way. Please leave your comments below.
