Legitimate sellers usually can purchase large amounts from MAC CCO (cosmetic company outlets)with their PRO CARD!!The OTHER VAST amounts of counterfeit HK,usually come from dubious source mainly websites which specialize in sales of VAST amounts of FAKES!Ebay settings,won't permit links to these websites on my guide.

Ok just to remind you,all Mac makeup always has UNIQUE shade names!They never just called black , pink or have NUMBER instead of proper shade name .If you see listing with NUMBER ONLY or vague description you know what to think.Ask the seller for proper shade name>ie name on the box or sticker,do not be deluded that these are SECONDS hence they have no stickers or UNIQUE shades names!GENUINE SELLER will find time to answer your QUERY!FAKE cosmetics can contain high levels of heavy metals (such as LEAD,MERCURY&HYDROGEN PEROXIDE) and can not only irritate the skin but encourage premature ageing as well as poisoning.
The counterfeiters just COPY all the INGREDIENTS/INFO onto the box etc,their aim is to make money!Your wellbeing is of non importance to them!So in a nutshell....the fakes are untested,they are usually made in poor sanitary conditions etc.
If you buy a fake,do your research and email the seller,report them to ebay and Paypal.Selling counterfeits is against eBay rules!It is also illegal under the Trading Act 1994!
