What disgusts me is when a product looks really authentic and claimed 100% authentic by a seller with great feedbacks is in fact fake.
I bought this online from a reputable seller. Funny thing, I searched google first to see if there are fake mac msf natural prods but I didn't see anything. I decided to get it coz the price is 1450php (around $30) which is the normal price in other countries and 300php ($6.50) cheaper than buying from a mac local store. I never thought someone will sell a fake for almost the same price as the original one.
When I opened the container, I got a whiff of a distinct smell which is not what I remember of mac. Then I saw the powder itself having a patchy shade/texture and has minimal shimmers, quickly I got my old empty pan of mac msf natural in light to compare. Examining the empty container, I texted the seller to ask if its fake. I'm not going to use the product if still hesitant of its authenticity right? But I was assured by the seller that its original as it was bought from US and that a lot of makeup artists already bought this product from her. Because of this, I tried the product on my face and that’s when I was convinced it’s really fake. I actually find it good but it didn’t give me the effect I love when using mac msf natural. I won't risk my face and thus, I got a brand new one from a mac retail store. (msf is HG for me, cannot live without!)
Got if from mac glorietta branch for 1750php (around $38.50)
And yup, conclusion.. There is a fake mac msf natural circulating that looks authentic. If you're not a mac user/addict, there is no way to know.
