Product Information:

M-A-C Cosmetics takes great pride in producing the finest quality prestige makeup. Because of this, M-A-C vigorously pursues counterfeiting operations and the individuals responsible for the production, distribution and sale of counterfeit goods.

Many counterfeit goods visibly appear to be authentic M-A-C Cosmetics products but they are not. Customers might counterfeit encounter goods on the internet that visibly appear to be authentic M-A-C Cosmetics products, but they lack the superior quality, research and development time invested in all of M-A-C products.

M-A-C Cosmetics does not offer its products through individuals, street vendors, flea markets, internet auctions sites including eBay, independent boutiques or unauthorized online retailers. M-A-C does not sell its products at wholesale prices over the internet. Dishonest sellers list counterfeit products on eBay as "Authentic" or "100% Genuine" for sale to unsuspecting buyers.
