When I was in Delhi I thought that city like Palika and ghaffars are the hub of fake cosmetics but I was proved wrong during my recent visit to one of the old market of char minaar. I found dozen cosmetic stores filled with fake cosmetics.Brands like MAC, Chanel, Lancome were being sold in Rs 200 and Olay and Ayur products costed little higher than the high-end brands
There were even fake shnaaz and Ayur products which were difficult to identify.Women there were not bothered about the genuinity and were buying anti wrinkle creams of shanaaz
Forget about getting rid of wrinkle these fake cosmetics can cause serious repercussion in long run.There are many cases of allergic contact dermatitis which have been reported in media because of these false products but no company has taken serious stand till now.Fake products do give some amount of glow in the beginning but prolong use of these can even contract serious ailments.
I took few pics of one of my favorite brand MAC .Packaging of the product looks quiet similar but a bogus product will look bogus somehow or the other.
so when I opened the eyeshadow palette it clearly showed the fake imitation
Shopkeeper even showed me MAC Nail manicure sets and nail polishes
Those who love MAC will surely not buy them from these markets but what about the innocent woman who are being cheated there.They are looking for anti wrinkle creams or skin whitening fairness lotions but in return they are taking along is some cheap cosmetics which can leave them with life long skin diseases
