First things first, Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics DO NOT carry any foundation line whatsoever.
So it comes as a surprise that we in The Bitbag discovered this Ad floating around on the World Wide Web:
Yes, it seems an online selling company is peddling some (very) fake Kylie products, particularly this foundation described as: “… ?smooth, blendable formula was specially developed by Kylie Cosmetics for those who wanted an emollient-based foundation with full coverage. Water-resistant and long-wearing, it can cover most scars, blemishes and birthmarks. Available in three colors, the cream cake can achieve sheer coverage by applying a small amount using a moist sponge, or full coverage by stippling it on using a dry sponge. Compatible with latex and other special effects synthetics. Great for beauty photography.”
A quick check of Kylie’s website reveals however that the site carries only lipstick and eyeshadow lines. So who’s selling these knock offs?
The Kylie Jenner brand is considered one of the most successful startup brands in the make-up business. In fact, when the first line was revealed, the lip products were sold out in a matter of 30 seconds!?Not bad for someone who actually just turned 19.
Another collection, her birthday line, was also sold out quite fast, and fans were already on the lookout of possible re-stocks. Aside from Kylie, her brother-in-law Kanye West also has his share of fake products. His famous Adidas line, Yeezy Boost was said to have been hit by counterfeit products from Russia. Birkenstock, earlier promised to pull out their sandals sold in the online store Amazon, after discovering that the site failed to regulate some of their stocks and sold fake birks along with the originals. ?Apple suffered loss when China (where most iPhones are being developed), created an almost perfect replica of the iconic smartphone.
Fake?Kylie Foundation: Price & Where To Find
The fake Kylie Foundation was found in Lazada.com, a retail site based in Asia and is sold at P2500 or roughly $55/ piece.
So for those planning to buy make-up online, beware — lots of fake ones out there!
