Another one to be wary about. This one sends out M•A•C products for under $25 a month. Problem is... the M•A•C is all counterfeit! M•A•C does NOT put their products in beauty boxes for one and two they don't allow their products to be resold other than by authorized dealers (Macy's for example). She even admits on their site it's counterfeit. Folks, please report this site to M•A•C Cosmetics, Dior, Chanel and all the companies she plans on ripping off.

Zadidoll, you're awesome for keeping up on these things and informing us ladies! Props to you and the investigating you do; it's like we have our own beauty Dateline! Lol, nice to read and be informed because no one wants to be the consumer who's taken advantage of.

I agree. It's really helpful to have someone scouting things for us and we appreciate it. Zadi shall be forthwith known as "Super Box Lady"... crushing the hearts of fraudulent subscription owners with a single post!

LOL Well I HATE scammers. After being scammed myself I just don't put up with it and don't think anyone else should either.

I think some girls just see that it's an imitation of a "good" brand and don't think about things like the fact that no one knows what the ingredients are and it could actually be DANGEROUS, etc.

Beauty Bomb Bag September 2012

MAC Eyeliner- Black
MAC Sheertone Blush- Mocha
MAC Zoom Lash Mascara- Black
MAC Pigment- Brule
MAC PlushGlass- Ample Pink

Although we are unable to guarantee the authenticity of the products, we can guarantee the quality!
...

This is the first bag that will be going out in September for ONLY $24.88! If you are interested please contact us at *****@gmail.com. We will set you up to receive your very own Beauty Bomb Bag!

**Shipping to Canada & US.
*** Please note: There is a monthly Beauty Bomb Bag that is sent out, if you sign up after the 20th of any month you will be purchasing the next months Beauty Bomb Bag!

 

This is ridiculous. How can you guarantee the quality if it isnt authentic? Ive heard so many horror stories about buying counterfit mac on ebay and that they use various chemicals and other things to make it. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen!

I agree. They can't guarantee the quality when it's NOT AUTHENTIC. Report this company to MAC Cosmetics!

Screenshots of their wall with them posting the "MAC" items and the fact it's replica will be good to send.

Also, I like how in one photo one blush is called "Liberty of Londo". Ughhh, I can't even fathom buying blatant fakes!!
