MAKEUP DUPES AND FAKES: IS ONE BETTER THAN THE OTHER?

The online market (and even the physical one) is saturated with counterfeit, also known as fake, makeup, promising the look of the real, high-end product for a fraction of the price. The drugstores are jam-packed full of dupe products that promise a similar shade, formula […]
