I love being one click away from buying something. The ease and connivence of online shopping has made it something practically everyone with a computer does, which is why it’s important to know that what you’re buying is the real deal.
Although I’ve done it in the past (like 6+ years ago) I’d probably steer clear of eBay for cosmetics. I’ve heard too many horror stories about paying $100 for a Jergens filled LaMer jar and it’s hard to track the sellers down for a refund.
Those stories make this detailed pictorial on how to spot fake M.A.C shadows all the more relevant. Unless you know the slight differences in the packaging, there’s really no way to tell if what you’re buying is the real thing. And, if it’s not the real shadow – what the heck is it?
