Left is FAKE. Right is REAL. Notice the difference in font colors, placements of the upc labels on the box, and the font size of the batch stamp is smaller and misplaced on the bottom of the fake bottle (sry, the glare is hiding it). Tired of frauds selling a million shape tapes or Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomades ETC. trying to make money when they buy them for $3 off DHgate. They’re making $9 off your purchase. Nothing against fakes, just don’t do ppl dirty like that!

hmbundy @tsmitty72 np, you’re probly not the only one not aware. DHgate really opened my eyes. Mk bags are on there too. I honestly might buy one! But it’s messed up trying to resell them for a profit like they’re real imo

rabalawulf Yeah I recently got screwed on a Stila Star Studded Eight lip set on ebay. The listing even said it was authentic, but when I opened my package I could tell immediately because of packaging and shade differences. And the crap I got was formulated so poorly it was completely unusable, even if I wanted to settle with my disappointment. I trust most people on poshmark, but if the price is too good to be true you should do your homework, read reviews, and ask for lots of pictures before buying.

hmbundy @rabalawulf it’s to the point I’d rather purchase straight from the suppliers than to risk purchasing a fake. Ebay is virtually useless. I refuse to purchase makeup on there. Every time I do it’s fake

hmbundy @bostonplatinum you’re so welcome! Luckily I just purchased new shape tape from tarte’s website and you’ll all be happy to know they changed their design. The bottle now says (if I remember right) “America’s #1 concealer brand”

hmbundy @marynlandon there’s videos on YouTube that can help you decide if you purchased a fake, although it’s easier when you can directly compare the two in front of you. I hope u didn’t get stiffed :(

hmbundy
hmbundy @poshkitten well I hope u can still get your money back. Posh should have experts on here to weed thru that. Ebay is HORRIBLE. I just bought a fake Versace bright crystal on there! And they already sold 22! Can’t trust anyone

judithdayal Does the side of the real bottle (not the box) have "made in Korea" on it? Mine says "Made in Korea Dist. By tarte. Inc. New York, NY all rights reserved..."etc. Thanks so much for this info! Its so helpful!

poshkitten @hmbundy the account blocked me. But I can’t believe they’re still getting away with selling fake shape tapes. I’ve reported them multiple times and emailed Poshmark support. Makes my blood boil.

BUT info like yours & others makes it a little easier on the actual HONEST PEOPLE in this world to use!!! So thank u & others for Sharing!!

beautyitalian27
beautyitalian27 I was wondering if there are fake Too Faced Hangover primer on here? I just bought one and I've never tried it before. From what I understand that the Hangover primer is supposed to smell a bit like coconut but, mine smells nothing like coconut. If there are fakes do you know how to spot one? Thanks for posting this it's extremely informative. I buy a ton of my makeup on here and sometimes I'm clueless and sometimes I know.

hmbundy @beautyitalian27 smell can be a big indicator!!! I’m not familiar with the product. I’ve seen benefit knockoff primer on there. I’ll do a little searching quick an see what I find
Jun 13Reply
hmbundy
hmbundy @beautyitalian27 o my gosh it showed up right away! It doesn’t say “Two Faced” on the pics, but I guarantee it will arrive with the brand on the package. https://m.dhgate.com/product/hangover-replenishing-face-primer-foundation/421899083.html?invitorid=If6ZJz53

hmbundy @beautyitalian27 there’s a lot of fake Too Faced products that show up. When I looked up primers these knock offs came up: Benefit, Tarte, 3 diff Too Faced primers including primed and pourless, hangover, and primed and peachy, Laura Mercier, Becca, and MAC (that I could identify)

beautyitalian27
beautyitalian27 @hmbundy what I actually think happened to mine is that the seller had the real package and filled it with fake product. That's another thing people have to watch out for. It's happened to me twice in Poshmark. Bummer there isn't a way to weed out the dishonest sellers. Your post is extremely informative and I actually never even considered that people would sell counterfeit makeup until I started buying off Poshmark.

beautyitalian27 I really appreciate the information. 😆 after I read your post on shape tape I went and looked because that's my holy grail concealer and I found 2 counterfeiters with your info alone.

shanonorawr I really hate to be that person, but the one on the right is not real- or if it is, you mixed up the box with the makeup tube >.<
Jul 07Reply
shanonorawr
shanonorawr The box is for light sand but the tube says light. Very easy way to spot tampering
Jul 07Reply
hmbundy
hmbundy @shanonorawr As I stated, the one on the right is real. So is the box. Doesn’t matter what color it’s for. This post is probably somewhat irrelevant by now anyways as I’m pretty sure Tarte has changed their boxes since.
Jul 07Reply
hmbundy
hmbundy @shanonorawr Not sure what “tampering” you’re trying to spot.
Jul 07Reply
shanonorawr
shanonorawr "Tampering" as in someone changing out the makeup product within the box. Occasionally people will buy from an authentic source, replace the makeup with fakes they get online, and then return them to the store, keeping the real one, while the fake gets resold by the store. An easy way to tell is if the box shade and makeup shade within the box don't match. It's fairly likely you just have several shades though and mixed up the boxes and tubes at some point
Jul 07Reply
shanonorawr
shanonorawr Alternatively, at the store, customers could have mixed up the tubes and boxes. It's really hard to not be cynical these days with how easy it is to get fakes
