Makeup lovers would be obsessed with these $6 USD Ultra Matte Lips from Colourpop. But did you also know that there's also fake scattered in the market? Fake makeup could be very dangerous to anyone. I took a risk this time to show you guys on how you can spot the fake Colourpop Ultra Matte.
Price bought in the Philippines:
- Genuine Colourpop Ultra Matte Php 400 each ($8.5 USD) - OUIJI
- Fake Colourpop Ultra Matte - Divisoria Php 65 each ($1.38 USD) - ECHO PARK & SOLOW
If you're not yet familiar with ECHO PARK, it should be ULTRA SATIN, the bottom color of the box should be Lime Yellow. But as you can see on the photo it shows in Red button and still with a box print of Ultra Matte Lip.
Box Packaging: Looks similar at first but it's really different when light hits the box. Solow which is on the middle shoes a matte effect for the embossed design while Echo Park copies the OUIJI well enough.
Made with ❤ in the USA - Genuine looks much brighter than fake.
Ingredients - Sorry for the blurred photo, font shows much darker than the fake ones.
Tube Details - check letter spacing and readability
Bottom Tube Sticker: The confusing part for the sticker. Echo park here looks more authentic than Genuine when I checked other reviews about Ultra Matte Lips.
Tube Size - Genuine is longer than Fake - will take measurements soon (to be updated)
Easiest way to check Genuine Tube would be this white part inside of OUIJI's bottom part - not sure how you call this thing (let me know if you're familiar so I can update this)
|Inside the CAP|
Tube Wand filter of Genuine is clear, Fake looks more translucent. Also, check how the silver lining looks, quite fading with lots of scratches even when its still brand new.
Colors are both vibrant and both true to its packaging. But it you can see the real Echo Park, It's really got the right shade correctly BUT it should be SATIN and not MATTE
