  • Today we're going to be taking a look at some fake and real makeup under a microscope! Also, a big thank you to Honey! You can join Honey for free here -

    So I've seen a lot of makeup under a microscope videos floating around, so I wanted to get in on the fun and get a microscope of my own to see what I could see! I got some knockoff makeup products from Santee Alley downtown, and then compared those to their real counterparts under a microscope to expose the differences up close on my skin! We took a look at the Sweet Peach Palette, Fenty Foundation, Moonchild Palette, Better Than Sex Mascara, and Kylie Lip Kit.

    Also, apologies for the "horseshoe" typo!! Whoops, lol.

    HELLO FRIENDS!! ah yes, another gross microscope video to add to the list.... what do you guys think of these products? I would say "would you try this?" but I don't want any of y'all using unregulated fake makeup!! But I do condone the use of a microscope in pretty much any situation. xoxo, saf

    The thing is though, if you don't comply with the rules of the FDA and you are discovered selling products in America, that's absolutely illegal. It's in the best interest of the cosmetic company to sell products that are FDA approved so they are allowed to sell their makeup in the American marketplace, which is huge. And every country except the EU countries- who just go by whatever ruling the EU puts in place- has their own standards that make-up companies also must adhere to to be sold in those plac...
