Fake Jeffree Star Lipsticks

Are You Using a Fake Jeffree Star Lipstick? Here's How to Tell

If you're out beauty shopping and find your favorite high-end product deeply discounted, there's a real possibility that the deal is too good to be true. Sadly, there are many knockoffs of luxury cosmetics items.

One such example is the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks. These cult colors cost $18, but have been surfacing online at the extremely low price of just $3.

Jeffree himself let his fans know that he is aware of the problem and his lawyers are working to shut down the counterfeiters.

We learned from this tutorial using fake beauty products that knockoffs aren't only ineffective, but potentially dangerous. Some formulas actually contain toxic levels of lead, arsenic, and mercury, and rat droppings and poison might even find their way into it, too.

Not sure if you're using a counterfeit Jeffree Star product? YouTuber Kili's Creative Space showed us how to spot a fake tube of Jeffree Star's liquid lipstick. The packaging is wildly different and the formula dries more quickly than the real thing. Don't feel too badly if you were wooed by a knockoff — being on a beauty budget is a struggle! — but proceed with caution. You might be saving money on that lipstick, but it may cause you to spend cash on medical bills.
