11+ Tips To Distinguish Between Real And Fake Famous Brands

The reason for purchasing famous brands isn’t always just in the name. Luxury products or popular brands are also purchased for the style, quality and detail. When purchasing a counterfeit, whether intentionally or unintentionally, it’s important to keep in mind that these factors are usually compromised.

If your intention is to buy a real product from a well-known brand from an outside seller there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure it’s genuine.

1. EOS Lip Balms – Some easy ways to confirm an EOS lip balm is genuine is if the plastic exterior is shiny, if the smell is sweet and fruity and if the caps lock together properly.
