I hope that you all are doing well . Today i am going to share some of my shopping experiences with you !! . I went to buy kryolan tv paint stick as my first one was finished. I stepped into a cosmetic store of Millenium Mall, Karachi . Its a very famous and big mall , you all know it very well. The shopkeeper showed me a kryolan tv stick and the price he told me was just Rs. 400. I was shocked as the original tv paint stick is available for Rs. 750 pkr. Being suspicious , i asked him thatis it an original or fake one ? He kept insisting on that it is an original one and he is selling me just because he wants to make me a regular costumer . ( makes no sense !!! ).
I stepped out of the shop and looked into another shop for the same product. That shopkeeper was an honest one. He told me that there are three versions of Kryolan tv stick is available in the market , their prices are as :
- Kryolan tv paint stick : original - Rs.750
- Kryolan tv paint stick : thailand made - Rs. 400
- Kryolan tv paint stick : local - Rs. 250

Etude Compact twin cake :

Kryolan Aqua Cake eye liner :
Original one : Rs : 400 to Rs 450 , Fake one is available for Rs. 75 ( locally made )
I saw another shopkeeper selling Mac and Bobbi Brown gel liners just for Rs. 1000 pkr. I asked him are they original or thailand made , after a long debate he finally admitted these are thailand made but are of great quality. My advice for all of you that do not run over big brand names , Instead of wasting money over these fake products and dupes, Buy cosmetics of Pakistani brands like Luscious , DMGM , Diana of London, Christine , They are a better option.
This is just a small list , to save you girls from being cheated . Always use cosmetics and skin care products . from trusted cosmetics stores. Be safe and secure !!
