I've mentioned in posts before regarding fake cosmetics. We've seen the conditions of which a lot of fake makeup is made in my post here. There are of course fake cosmetics manufacturers who are more hygienic than those featured in the news article I refer to in my post but it is difficult to discern the safety of the ingredients used be it on a short term or long term period.
As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I noticed an advertisement post one after the other that used the same exact video to promote its product. Mind you, upon closer read, I found that the ad was for 2 different companies.
Here is a snapshot of the first advertisement:
If you were to click on the link provided however, you are greeted by this product:
First of all, it is clear that the set sold is not the same as the ones in the video accompanying the advertisement. The design of the print and size of the pencil is completely different.
Now here's the second advertisement:
Notice the similarities in the video stills? It was the exact same video but now this advertisement pointed to a different product and link. Let's have a look at the link:
Once again, the product displayed on the page is not of the same packaging design as we can see in the video that was posted with the link.
As a make up artist and beauty enthusiast, I immediately recognized the product in the video as the NUDESTIX Magnetic Matte Lip Colour pencils from the distinct design of the product. I did a quick YouTube search and found this video by YouTuber Donovan Gibb:
You can view the full video from Donovan here.
It's sad to see companies using other people's work to market their own brand and products. It is a complete misrepresentation of the product that they are selling and take customers away from the product demonstrated in the video.

NUDESTIX was founded by a mother (Jenny) and her 2 daughters (Ally & Taylor). The entire line is beautifully packaged and was meant to be super portable and easy to use. If you love the nude look, this is an excellent line to start with. The formula and versatility is ideal for the girl/woman on the go who wants to spruce up her look quickly.
If you watch the video above, you'll see how pigmented and smooth of a formula the Magnetic Matte Lip Colors are. They are described as a lip stain, lip colour and lip liner, 3-in-1 formula. NUDESTIX is available in most Sephoras worldwide including our very own Sephora in Malaysia.
