Follow Refinery29 to Downtown Los Angeles’ infamous Santee Alley shopping district, where you'll find dozens of displays bursting with hot-ticket fake makeup items like Kylie Lip Kits, Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighters, and MAC lipsticks. Ten years ago, this stretch was the place to go for knock-off handbags - and if they weren't already out in the open, all you had to do was ask. Today, there isn't a fake purse in sight; they've all been replaced by contouring palettes.
Read the complete article here -
Shady is the side of the beauty world you haven't seen. Hosted by Refinery29 Senior Beauty Editor, Lexy Lebsack, the series swivels between the unexpected and uplifting, dives deep into the dark underbelly of beauty, gives a voice to those trampled by this quickly growing industry, and questions what it’s all worth. From counterfeit makeup to skin trafficking for cosmetic procedures, we go there.

Isn't the real crime when name brands sell one powder for $100??!? Or that social media make us believe we need "designer luxury makeup" whatever the hell that means!I'm good with my ELF & Cover Girl!!

The only reason why I buy luxury brand makeup is for the quality itself. If I'm looking for a cheap lipstick, I can get a milani lipstick for less than $6 and have it work just as great as high end brands. I refuse to put products with shady labels on my face

OMG fake conterfeit things found in Chinatown? Whats next? Selling fish in PetSmart? I had been buying clothing and whatever since the 1970s in Chinatown..its so hard to laugh seeing this person surprised its counterfeit. They also have prostitution in NYC..shocking. They do sell some nice things however..my mom bought me a slim jim to open my car if locked out, for xmas. Walmart doesnt sell those.

They contain lead, mercury and even HORSE URINE. Have you ever heard of PREMARIN...its pregnant horse urine used to make menopausal drugs for women. It also causes breast cancer and both my sister and mother used it and both got breast cancer. The V.A doctors tried to push it on my after I went through menopause. They kill millions of newborn horses to make this...its such bullshit. Like urine would be equal to taking lead or mercury..read your face cream..urea is URINE...its sterile urine but still urine.

It's crazy that billion dollar companies are so concerned with arresting people that have incomes reliant on selling counterfeit makeup. There are all sorts of shit in non-counterfeit makeup. They act like its crazy that this makeup "causes acne" and that it's dangerous and shit. All makeup can cause acne. I think its more dangerous to consume one-sided narratives on issues like this than putting on a fake lip kit that might have a tiny bit of mercury. Guess what else has mercury? Fish! A food some eat daily! People gotta feed their families and there are not enough options for marginalized groups to make a living. Why aren't we attacking systems that make it so people have to sell illegal makeup and risk their freedom in order to pay for their basic necessities while these multi-billionaire companies get to sit back on their thrones and hog resources, getting people thrown in jail for selling makeup! Wow!

Did marketing in school, and true some counterfeit are bad but alot of the original are not worth the price either. The mark up price is usually strickly based on the brand name. We event did a whole study on a certain sneakers (won't say the name) both counterfeit and the brand name came from the exact same factory the only difference is one carried the brand name and other one didn't and the price difference between both sneakers were hundreds of dollars.

I care less about fake fake purses and clothes. Makeup has chemicals in it. They mentioned arsenic and another one that has killed tons of people. That’s slowly poisoning people to death day by day through each application of makeup.

Not all counterfeit is the same...she’s speaking as if it all comes from China, it doesn’t. And there are “higher end, better quality” lines out there that aren’t in the back alleys...why not address the ridiculous prices on these cosmetics. Women are actually spending hundreds, thousands of dollars monthly on these brands. It’s outrageous.

Yeah, we shouldn't use these products because of their bad ingredients, but what about what's in the real thing? The cosmetic industry in general is infamous for not providing us with safe products. Products that contain formaldehyde, parabens, etc.

Maybe I'm oblivious (...actually that's likely) but I don't understand why commentors feel judged in Sephora? I've rolled through Sephora in sweats and no makeup and been treated the same as when I come in well dressed. MAC standalone stores, though. Different story. I definitely feel like Ulta's the "better" store with their rewards program and high/low options for makeup/skin/hair, but there are some brands that are exclusive to Sephora that I love so dearly! I also love how top tiers of Sephora's program get in on new releases before the rest. I almost never worry about a sell out.

Any respectable, reputable makeup artist is not buying their makeup there. I saw a comment but cant find it now where someone said makeup artists probably do use it on clients since they're not wearing it that long anyway. NO! I highly doubt that unless it's an immensely shady artist or an unlicensed one..And in that case if they are a real one they can lose their license. Either way, someone who goes to school for cosmetology/makeup artistry will not use fake counterfit products on clients because they know the dangers and if they do use it, I'm sure they dont have regular clientele

Only the consumer can eliminate the demand, people shop with their wallets (they prefer cheap products and hate paying retail, they know full well they are buying knockoffs). They know full well the stupidity of buying health, personal, and beauty products off a table on a street corner or from a trunk. The private investigators, companies, and law can only do so much it's up to us as consumers to stop being a part of the crime and supporting these criminals.

I think ths reason is marketing by the make up artists who frequently use brands and make videos on UZvid... So the people who can't buy real go for fake..
These so-called "Black Market" are completely normal in places like southeast Asia and yes you better believe fakes are being sold in public and even at malls. Everyone knows they're fake, but of course when asked the sellers will tell you they're genuine some of them do. Others sell both the legit and the knock-off products, it's not just limited to skin care and makeup but it extends to perfume, electronics etc..

one thing you can't deny is the fact that this makeup is way .. way over priced. Most of the time, we are paying for the brand ..not the actual lipstick .. so if they would price it closer to what it is really worth instead of these outrageous numbers .. people wouldn't even bother to buy fakes

The lady in the video is right, many products in high percentages are from China. This is the problem, not just the under cover sellers, its the availability to get it from China at what ever cheaper cost. The guy who got arrested is thousands to millions doing this hustle to support themselves and their household and its a doggy world. Its unfortunate for people like him. They should start arresting the people from China: that's the big dog: they always get the little guy. Great video!
