I was shopping in the garment district here in Downtown Los Angeles or some refer to it as "the Alley" and came upon several little shops with MAC makeup.  I asked the salesman was it real and she said yes but I don't know.  Five MAC eyeshadows for $20, studio fix powder $10 and they even had hello kitty MAC. Has anyone else seen this stuff?  I started to buy some but didn't want to be ripped off. That area is known for selling bootleg products. Funny thing is that the boxes, containers all looked so authentic.  They had MAC humid eyeshadow and I swear it was the same color, texture, as the one I own.  Hmm!Confused

Some are fake !!!

 
Been to the Alley and I bought a MAC blush called Style (which I own). The color was the same but it was more powdery and the packaging had some minor details... I knew it was fake.

i just read a thread about this the other day. some of these dupes look soo real at first glance but like rumi said, the small details are what give them away.

If it seems too good to be true, it likely is. 5 for $20 would be a makeup junkie's dream.

I was so tempted to buy some. I've been wanting MAC blunt for a minute, so I might give the bootleg a try.

You have lots of bootlegging of MAC Products going on in New York also.  They are being sold  by street vendors.  95% of my eyeshadows are by MAC.  I notice that the containers used are different than those from the actual MAC retailers and that the colors listed on the containers of the bootleg versions are often wrong.  Since when did Nocturnelle eyeshadow become green.  I would advise people not to buy them because you are taking a risk.
