It's been months since I last posted something on this blog. Honestly, I got quite lazy writing and taking pictures. So last Saturday, I got somewhat overjoyed when I saw this set from the makeup brushes section of Landmark Trinoma. I grabbed this set of pretty pink brushes and paid the cashier Php 498.75. Although I already knew that Landmark sells items from Divisoria, it never crossed my mind that they would actually have the guts to sell fake items. I don't own the authentic set prior to my purchase but I had gifted the Core Collection to someone which I bought from KALM cosmetics two years ago. I remember it cost roughly a thousand pesos. So thought it's a bargain! Then I posted the above picture to my Facebook account and captioned that I think I bought a fake one because the price is too good to be true. I also learned online that the Core Collection doesn't come in pink or violet color (they also have this one in violet at Landmark). Then a friend of mine told me that fake Real Techniques are scattered all over Divisoria.
I checked the labels and they are slightly chipping off. I don't know if this happens to the original Real Techniques brushes. But I really don't mind because it's not ideal to carry fake items and sooner or later they'd look like just the ripoff.
