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 Today, there isn't a fake purse in sight; they've all been replaced by contouring palettes.

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.

I mean, counterfeit make up does contain unwanted ingredients but expensive make up does harm your skin overtime. Girls look so ugly when they take it off. Just stay real people.

Fake makeup is incredibly dangerous and is rarely ever tested. There are great and more affordable brands out there who do the same thing. You just need to stop caring about the label.

Hope you feel ok about been part of arresting someone that just was working maybe to support his family, maybe he has kids, so i hope you think of them when you stuffed your belly on Thanksgiving. Btw this is not the best way to be a journalist, you are only playing "oh i risk myself to get the news", no you're not.

If the beauty product companies in our country weren’t SO GREEDY, people wouldn’t seek out the counterfeits!! It’s OUT OF CONTROL!!!! The mark up is 300% or HIGHER!!!!! SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!!!!!! There’s enough to go around!! These “BEAUTY COMPANIES” want to “CLAIM” that they “CARE” about the “CONSUMERS”, they ONLY CARE ABOUT their profit margins!!!!!! These companies can start by giving the consumers quality products at a FAIR price!! They will make MORE money by doing that because people wouldn’t look for counterfeit products, they would purchase the ACTUAL products! Just make the prices realistic, people WILL buy them and you will STILL be able to live a luxurious life but WITHOUT having to look over your shoulder or have the police or homeland security take time away from SERIOUS CRIME and possible atrocities to our to country. At what point is it ENOUGH money? I pity this industry and the people involved in it!!! WAKE UP!!! At what point is there enough money in your pocket? PATHETIC!!

Not all of the "name brands" sold cheaply are counterfeit. Many Chinese factories that make products for those companies also sell the items for MUCH cheaper, because they don't need the giant mark ups. That said, there are unfortunately, a LOT of counterfeits as well, and if you're going to look into "back door sales", you NEED to know the rarmarks of a fake vs a real mccoy.

Well, the blackmarket isn't something new and there will always be one. Be honest, is a Kylie lipstick worth 30$? It's just for the status, which became a huge trend through social media.

🌸 Agree, it’s not worth the risk, as toxins build within your body over time......it doesn’t go away. Break out is least of your worries if you are using this on daily basis over time. Remember skin absorbs what ever we put on it, it’s how we put rubs and headache patches, nicotine patches etc Skin’s ability to absorb stuff is astounding so don’t put yourself at risk over few dollars As over time it can affect internal organs etc......long time ago I read in news paper a UK woman bought cheap alcohol, which was fake and she went blind due to chemicals they used and they too were NOT regulated!

I’m pretty sure a lot of people know the sketch about those cheap brand makeup, but they still go out of their way to buy it just because of the brand...like come on who tf cares if you have a fucking Micheal Kors bag or a Kylie Jenner palette, I honestly hate society nowadays. Y’all are just losing your money on pointless shit really..

Today I went to the official NYX shop in my city I screamed when I see the receive of a little bit up to one hundred pounds. I told myself all the time this make up will last because I am this type of person. Randomly I find out this documentary and made me though how many years ago I felt so tempted to buy these products on Chinese online shops and honestly after seeing the images of the fabrics in china and hearing they got mercury and these kind of elements that I know pretty well are not good. I am reassuring myself that better less products but in the right shop and make it last...
Alivia 21 kun oldin
They should make the makeup products more affordable so this counterfeiting doesn't happen... you could keep your fancy high end stuff and then make products that are a bit more affordable for people who dont want to spend $20 on a lipstick. That way they get the name brand they want but maybe it is just a bit lower quality formula but still safely made. Like a MAC Pro line and a MAC drugstore line. Idk how the whole business aspect of these corporations works but it would make sense to try to market some products at affordable prices so you can profit from consumers who would have bought counterfeit or other drugstore brands... instead they would buy the MAC (or whoever) brand because they know it is a trusted brand with high quality makeup. There is a lot that goes into makeup formulation and marketing and packaging and I know these people want to make a profit, but they could totally access a way larger consumer base and possibly increasing the number of sales and revenue if they made more affordable products....

robotinarowboat 26 kun oldin
it makes me so sad that they're just arresting the small vendors on the street as if that's gonna fix the problem- they need to deal with the suppliers. Nobody stands on the street all day in the middle of winter in NYC because they WANT to, it's because they have to make a living for themselves/their families and this is better than working at mcdonald's or selling drugs. they're not getting any closer by only arresting the people selling on the street instead of the shady factories that make them- they need to get rid of the source instead of putting people who are trying to make a living into jail because they couldn't find a better work option.

No one can really tell whether you wear luxury or drugstore makeup if it's a good product with good application. Drugstore brands have really stepped up their game and there's tons of amazing products for $15 or less.

Shouldnt they arrest the people who sold him the goods, because he didnt make them hes just selling them.

Our oun government is filthy, sad how he will go to jail and the government will make money off having him in prison. Nobody really understands how messed up and unorginized it is, people just believe every arrest is justice but in reallity we should be pointing fingers at the government.

Both sides are full of BS. Just like women who have a $300 purse, is it better quality than a purse that costs $50, or are you paying for the name? Now we all know Chinese made goods are inferior, and even dangerous, but the companies that charge hundreds of dollars for lipstick are robbing their consumers.

It is nice video and I like it. Many big western companies are exploiting poor countries too. At least this guy is offering much more to help them. Nice of him. Even Politicians exploit their citizens every where in the world. The only difference is the ratio. Western politicians take little and give more to the people. To the opposite, Africa politicians take more and give less. How can I find Dan''s company?
