Fake, but nice brushes all the same
on February 25, 2012
These are really good knockoffs. The case is WAY nicer than I expected, and even came with it's own zippered dust cover. It has universal pockets, so it can be customized for travel, and even has a zippered pouch inside for odds and ends. Compared to the MAC brushes I have from the MAC store, they seem to be equal quality. (I will, of course, update if they start to fall apart later) For the price it can't be beat. They are stamped Japan, which doesn't mean much. (Or Paris, Turkey, etc. Real MAC brushes are NOT all from Paris) Of course, on the rare occasion that MAC does sell sets, they have SE after the number. These do not, and are also full sized.
Look, if paying extra for "genuine" brushes means a lot to you, don't buy these. But for all I know they are made in the same factory, and simply not authorized. They really are that nice. I don't need to pay 10X as much for MAC to tell me I have a good product. I can tell that myself. I'm taking off a star for their lack of honesty, not because of the quality of the brushes.
