Fake make-up is a million dollar industry that sells unsuspecting buyers poisonous and disgusting knock-offs.


She thought she'd found a deal... (Comedy Central)

Super bummer! That MAC blush you've been buying online for a fraction of what it costs at Sephora? It's probably made in an unregulated factory somewhere. Instead of paying full price for the unicorn shavings and fairy dust in a brand-name eyeliner, you're buying stuff to smear on your face that contains traces of lead, arsenic, mercury, human urine and rat droppings. The first three are the worst, but the last two feel the worst.

Of course, most people don't find that out and say, "Oh well, it's worth it to look this good." There are lots of folks online who dedicate time to smoking out the fakes, or helping you to.
