Fake CK & MAC Eyeshadow Palettes - Review & Swatches

heyy lovelies ! today i am going to review the fake MAC and CK palettes i have.

Fake CK & MAC Eyeshadow Palettes


My thought

i came across these palettes in a grocery store.i ran out of my toiletries, was shopping them, when i noticed a girls on the cosmetic counter swatching an eyeshadow palette.the thing which got my attention was the pigmentation of the swatch i asked the salesman to show me those palettes and the moment i saw the CK written on that palette i knew its a fake one but to confirm i asked for the price he told me the price is PKR 380.I asked him is it the fake one and he agreed to it.

so the thing is if i knew these were the fake palettes why did i buy them.well, to be honest i really loved the colors of CK palette and when i swatched them they were really pigmented and creamy smooth.i asked for the other palettes like it and he showed me the MAC one and those colors were awesome too so i ended up buying these..

i have been using these palettes for a year now and i am really impressed with the colors pigmentation.the texture is soft and they glides smoothly on the skin.some of the colors do have minor fall outs.the staying power is quite long,they stay up to 7 hours on me and with the primer underneath the staying power is longer.i really like the packaging, for such a cheap n fake product the packaging is really impressive and sturdy.palettes come with sponge applicators but they weren't of any use.

i really love the two black palettes because of their performance i also bought the white CK palette.but that's not as good as the these palettes most of the colors are chalky n have major fallout and the staying power is not good.so that's the thing with the fake ones sometimes you get lucky and get a good product but sometimes you end up buying a worthless thing.

Swatches

top : Brow powder
bottom: blushes

i really like the color of the blushes from this palette but they hardly stay for 2 hours.

on the back of the palettes its mentioned that they are made in Canada or USA.i don't know why the companies do such cheap marketing tricks naming their products after famous ones just to boost the sales.after using them i can say if these palettes weren't named after high-end-brands the right marketing tricks could have made them favourites among consumers because their performance is not less then any good brand.



Pros

  • great pigmentation
  • lovely colors
  • packaging
  • travel friendly
  • budget friendly

Cons

  • Fake Fake Fake
  • some colors have fallouts and are chalky

i will rate them 4/5
