Sorry for the delay in posting. It’s been a busy couple of months for me with my new role at work, but here I am again! Another fake vs real comparison post! This post will be based around Doll Parts and Redrum from the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick collection. I hope you find this helpful x
Just to make this easier, the genuine product will always be on the left or the top in the photo.
1. The front of the boxes
At first glance, it might be difficult to spot the difference because both the counterfeit and genuine boxes look so similar. On closer inspection, I have noticed that the fake boxes (right) are slightly longer than the genuine ones (left), but this would be hard to see if you don’t have a genuine one to compare it with. (I promise the more details I add, the easier it will be for you to spot the differences!)
2. The top of the boxes.
You can see the difference straight away here! The genuine boxes have the colour name printed on a sticker, the fakes do not.
3. The bottom of the boxes.
The genuine boxes only have a number printed on the bottom “6C1” “6C2” etc. I wouldn’t read in to the number itself too much as I’m not sure at this point what they prepresent (whether or not they are a batch code and might vary later on as more lipsticks are produced, or if they are a standard code that never changes). The fake boxes have a round sticker on the bottom of the box with the colour name, the same stickers they use on the bottom of the fake lipstick bottles (see photo in number 5)
4. The front of the lipsticks.
Again, its difficult to see the difference unless you have them side by side. The fake bottles (right) look slightly longer and slightly more thin.
5. The bottom label.
The genuine label is printed in bold text and is slightly smaller than the fake label. The genuine label will also have a code imprinted on it (second photo. The one on my genuine Redrum was a little hard to capture because it wasn’t imprinted as deeply as the one on Doll Parts, but it’s definitely there.)
6. The applicator.
The genuine Jeffree Star applicator is clear with a fluffy tip which has a point on one side, the fake has a white applicator with a straight, cylindrical, tip.
7. The inside of the lid.
The inside of the genuine lid (left) is clear at the base, where as the fake one is white.
8. The smell.
The genuine Jeffree Star lipstick doesn’t have an obvious scent to me, it’s very mild and only slightly perfumed, where as the fake one smells strongly of chocolate!
I hope this article has been helpful for anyone who has been having a hard time seeing the differences!
