But for those of you that haven't seen this article published by The Daily Mail, I really thought it was something that all make-up and beauty lovers should be made aware of. The problem isn't just fake make-up that isn't quite as good as you thought it would be anymore, but the products can actually be dangerous to your health! Some of the fakes that were scientifically tested, showed up alarming quantities of lead, copper, mercury and arsenic! Some of the fake eyeliners also showed up to contain traces of paint stripper and nail varnish remover! I am utterly shocked by this article, and can't believe that there are people doing this. It is a very scary thought that you think you have just found yourself a bargin make-up item and it could potentially put in the doctors surgery if not hospital.
So the next time you are shopping on ebay or amazon, please bear this in mind and be super careful about who and where you purchase your beloved make-up from.
