Did You Buy a Fake Fiber Lash Mascara?
Have you just bought some cheap, 3D Fiber Lashes of eBay or Amazon assuming they were real Younique mascaras? Well bad news, they are almost definitely fakes no matter how real they seem.
Several months back, I blogged about the difference between Real vs Fake Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. If you’re unsure whether yours is a fake, then read that article.
The post regularly has comments from bargain hunters looking to score a cheap deal on these popular 3D fiber mascaras…only to find out they ended up buying 3D lash knock-offs.
Has that happened to you? I really want to hear from those of you who got caught out by these impostors. Maybe we can do our bit to clamp down on the fraudsters.
If it happened to you, please know that you’re not the other only one. Every day, just about, I am hearing from pissed-off-purchases of these counterfeit mascaras from all over the world.
Name & Shame the Counterfeit Makeup Sellers
Counterfeit makeup is big business around the world. But what you get for cheap may cost you in the long run – given that in some instances 200 times the safe limit of chemicals can be found in them!
What’s really scary, is how many people are buying these Younique fakes – because they don’t know any better. Then they receive them and they look so “real” that it can be hard to spot the difference!
- Some fakes have bar codes and some do not. (So that’s NOT necessarily the way to tell if they are fake)
- The boxes and logo/branding are slightly different.
- The address details are different on the real vs fake (LLC vs Products).
- The transplanting gel stinks on the fakes. If yours has any sort of stench, it is definitely fake!
The one on the left is my picture of a set of 3D Fiber Lash mascaras that I bought via my own Younique by Thea website…(Sadly, I cut off the 4-digit number below the barcode. I’ll have to take another when my next bulk order comes in).
The one on the right was sent by a lovely visitor called “Bel” just yesterday. She sent that and some other images of her bulk purchase from a seller on eBay in Australia.
The seller claims to have gotten them from a “YouNique distributor based in Singapore” – which, of course, there is no such thing!!
Once again – you will not find REAL Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara anywhere on eBay, Amazon, Craiglist or Gumtree or anything of that sort. Our genuine, best-selling, Younique product, sold by actual Younique presenters, can only be sold on our own, individual Younique websites. We are prohibited from using any of those sites our terms and conditions.
The only way I could see any real ones on there is if a person sold theirs as an “unwanted gift” but really how could tell you until you bought it. Please don’t take that risk.
Wherever you are in the world though, you can buy 3D Fiber Lashes here.
Fake 3D Fiber Lashes
I’d like to hear from you in the comments below. Have you purchased some 3D mascara that you thought was from Younique only to find it’s not the real mccoy? Where did you buy them and who from? Did you try to get your money back? Did you succeed? Do you have any pictures you can send of the fakes?
What would you like to do now?
