A few months ago, I blogged about how my fascination over lipsticks started. I mentioned about this particular brand that was only available at NCCC Mall of Davao. The name is L.A Girl. I currently own two Luxury Creme Lip Color lippies; one in Amour and the other one is Devoted. I got them for only 85php.
Last week, a friend of mine who was crazy-jealous about my Devoted lipstick, told me that she scored the exact same shade at the newly renovated beauty section of SM City Davao, which happened to introduce new brands including Elf, Kate, and L.A. Girl.She was bragging about how happy she was that she finally have one and that she never have to borrow from me ever again.
She also told me that she got hers for 299php. I was like, “WHAT?”. She got confused of my sudden outburst. I told her that I only got mine for only 85php and she squealed “WHAT THE?!” I borrowed her tube and examined it. I didn’t find any unusualities; packaging is the same, scent is the same, color pay-off and consistency is the same. And I thought that’s kinda weird.
There were two things that pooled my mind that very moment. 1.) SM City is overpriced, or 2.) Mine is fake. I googled L.A. Girl pricelist and I was directed to this page. Approximately, Luxury Lip Creme sells for $3. That explains SM City’s price tag. I also researched some facts about fake L.A. Girl cosmetics, but to no avail.
This really bothers me, because I love my L.A. Girl lippies, and it would break my heart if I find out that they’re fake.
Can somebody please enlighten me?
