Tried Out Fake Makeup Products

I remember the first time I discovered online shopping. It was probably the most satisfying hunt I had ever experienced in my entire life.

And because online shopping has been such a big hit, a lot of online platforms popped out of nowhere, making it even more convenient for us to look and buy all sorts of products at a cheaper price. Including makeup.

This is not my first time to try it out but it’s definitely my first time to shop makeup products online. And this time, I chose to try out makeups that look exactly like the real ones. I don’t know if I can call them dupes but most people just call them Singapore Authentic Makeup Products. They are waaay cheaper than the actual ones. Buying them will be like getting 70% discount or more. So it’s not a surprise that people are hooked!

I follow a few online stores on Instagram and I came across to this store called MakeupHolics or something. Below are the products that I got for a discounted price. They are the “Beginner’s Set” and they only cost P900 + sf of P99.

And since I’ve always been curious about these fake products, I thought of buying some and try them out myself. Good thing Instagram house a lot of online beauty stores that s

I remember the time when almost every YouTuber were using and recommending this brush, so, I was quite excited when it came with the set. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of these just to see if it was/is worth the hype and I have to say, I’m far from crazy about this. I guess I’m just really comfortable with how easy the application with the usual brushes

This paddle brush is perfect for concealing your undereye and for contouring because of how small it is. It’s actually my first time to use this because I’m not really crazy about these paddle brushes and it just came with the set. For this one, it glides smoothly on my face. The bristles are soft and it’s so easy to wash.

It’s just really sad that I wasn’t able to choose the shade of this foundation. I used it once and it’s really creamy which is perfect for contouring but a no-no for those who are oily skinned like me. They kinda leaves your face greasy.

This “dipbrow pomade” is the main reason I thought of doing this post. There were a bunch of good reviews regarding this so-called “pomade” from ABH that I just have to experience it myself.

From the packaging, you can see the uncanny resemblance it has to the real one. But I’m pretty sure the letter A on the cap will not fade too easily in the real ABH. I was actually surprised because of how consistent the formula was and how it looked good on my eyebrows when applied. The only deal breaker here is it hardens easily that I had to throw it away. Putting a drop of sunflower oil wasn’t doing well anymore. So, I guess that’s how you can tell that it’s totally fake. I mean, I have an eyebrow pomade and it doesn’t harden at all.

This product actually came with a spoolie brush but I kinda lost it. It was the perfect brush because it’s thin and just the right size. If anything, I wish the pomade was the one that got lost instead of the brush.

These are my first-ever lip creams and I am just so in love with the shades. I actually bought the ABH from a store in a mall and the rest are from online. And dang, the smell of these lip creams are incredible. They smell like chocolate. I am addicted to their smell.

The next one is the Nyx Lingerie in the shade Exotic. I love it too. When I ordered it, I kinda thought that it’s a bit paler kind of a nude but it’s not. It’s actually a bit brownish with a combination of plum too. Just a tiny hint of plum and it’s gorgeous on my lips especially than I’m a little bit of tan-skinned person so it fits perfectly.

The other lip cream is the L.A Girl Matte in the shade 02. This one for me is way more on the darker side. I wasn’t able to pick the shade. This shade is the default shade in the set so I have to deal with it. It’s not really disappointing because I love it too. It has a tiny bit of a similarity to the Nyx’ Exotic shade but a tad more darker. It’s almost like it’s plum for me but most people would say it looks like a brown shade.

This one came as a surprise for me. I’ve been hearing about this Kissproof product. It’s like a crayon kind of a lipstick. It’s in the shade 12 and it’s totally plum to violet kind of shade. When I got it I really thought it was broken or something because I tried to use it like a regular lipstick where I twisted the end part to see how long it is and it didn’t work. I later learned from the merchant that like a pencil, I have to use this giant sharpener which I didn’t get with it. Sucks.

I have nothing bad to say to these lip creams because they’re gorgeous and they don’t fade away easily which is harder when you try to remove them especially with water.

This paddle brush is perfect for concealing your undereye and for contouring because of how small it is. It’s actually my first time to use this because I’m not really crazy about these paddle brushes and it just came with the set. For this one, it glides smoothly on my face. The bristles are soft and it’s so easy to wash.

But if anyone asks me if I prefer this to the regular brush and beauty blender, I’d say I’ll stick the old fashion brush and sponge because I’m just really not used to using this.

I have nothing against products like these that totally copies the real ones because let’s be honest, the real version of these ones are just so expensive and buying these version is like the practical way. But we just really have to be extremely cautious with these products since they are just copies (lol.) and we really don’t know what is in them and they could really harm our skin big time especially for the sensitive ones like me.

I still suggest that you guys buy the real ones or if they are too expensive for your budget, try looking for the dupes. Remember, it doesn’t matter what brand of makeup you use, what matters is that you know how to do makeup.
