Makeup and using cosmetics are becoming an inevitable part of beauty these days. Irrespective of gender, people are trying out many cosmetic items in order to make themselves look more attractive and stand out in a crowd.
Makeup and women have an unbreakable relationship since ages. This could probably be the reason why the number of cosmetic products being dumped in the market is drastically increasing day by day, so much so that people can never get enough from a single trusted brand and try using whatever they get in the market. Malayalees, who usually do not even buy a detergent that is expired, are happily buying cosmetics that do not belong to any particular brand, and even if are branded contain carcinogens.
There is an even more crucial and serious dimension to the cosmetic story. For all those out there who say that one should only rely on branded cosmetic and makeup products as they maintain quality, 90 per cent of these “branded items” like L’Oreal, Maybelline, Lakme, ColorBar, Chambor, etc. that are sold in the posh shops could be duplicates. MAC, which is one of the world’s best professional range of makeup products and is used by runway models, is being sold even at the local ladies stores in cities. These are undoubtedly duplicates.
