Spot the genuine NYX SMLC
Hi all :) firstly i am so,so dismayed that again,another of my favs products,has been counterfeited :( so here is the guide to help you avoid purchasing these nasty fake soft matte lip creams.
Lets start with the fake NYX packaging,the tube is slightely longer,than real ,the sticker at the TOP with number and SMLC is missing too.The fake also has batch code which is just selection of random numbers such as photo shows 02252011 .Genuine NYX has different codes,for different shades.The bottom sticker on fake is shiny,and totally different font is used ,again please compere my photos.The BOTTLE for REAL SMLC,is entirely matte,with NO transparent plastic!
Now the real test,the texture,on counterfeit,is greasy,and even before it was opened,it separated into gloopy mess!Fake NYX SMLC,is not MATTE,either,the DOE applicator on FAKE,is longer,stiffer&harder!Now the SCENT the real NYX SMLC,smells wonderfully of subtle VANILLA cookie,the TEXTURE,is CREAMY :)
The counterfeit SMLC,has watery texture,that was hard to remove(who knows what pigment and ingredients were used in this)
The authentic SMLC,has weight indication on the FRONT,the fake (the one i got anyway)has none,it should read 0.27fl.oz 8mL.Remember,that some sellers,do not care or pretend ignorance,while selling these fakes!The ingredients,can be anything/some are mostly never been tested,so please look after your skin,and stay smart and beautiful.Please vote if you find this guide helpful. Thank you ebayers,for providing me with names of sellers who sell this counterfeits:
