Fake MAC Mineralize on eBay



For the last couple of years I have been living with a low background hum of outrage over the state of eBay trading. Not so much the massive fees etc (that's another story) but the number of fakes that are peddled on the site. I've lost count of the number of reports I've made to eBay about these, but there comes a point where you just have to sit back and laugh at the ridiculous fakeness of the fakes.

Some of them are quite convincing. Some of them really really aren't. Today I've found this gem.

It's a Hello Kitty Antiquitease Mineralize eyeshadow! Of course that existed. Of course it was packaged in such a classy fashion. Oh dear.

I wrote a post about how to spot fakes earlier this year. (Although if you can't tell that Hello Kitty up there isn't kosher at first sight then I'm afraid I'll just have to pray for you.)

On a note of more concern - it seems it is now possible to fake Mineralize-style baked products, something that was previously thought to be a fairly safe bet. If you are a collector of MAC MSFs and go to eBay for your LE items, please do take extra care.
