Beware of Fake MAC / Bobbi Brown Makeup Brush
If you are planning to buy make up brush like MAC / Bobbi Brown / NARS, my advice is buy them at their counter. DO NOT buy at EBAY or other online store because they are most likely selling you a FAKE BRUSH.
I know you might be tempted to buy from ebay because of their price, but why you pay something that is not worth that much...might as well you buy the non branded brush which is better quality than fake branded brush.
Here is a review / guides that someone write on Ebay.
"I am a MAC ADDICT!! My purpose for this guide is to inform those that are not sure in regards to some MAC items on eBay. I have seen so many sellers selling FAKE MAC makeups on eBay and it really bugs me. For the price that they are selling them for you might as well buy REAL ones. I understand sometimes people live in areas where there is no local MAC store or retail stores that carry MAC products such as at Macy's & Nordstrom. But another option is you can go online and buy online. MAC does have a online store. I highly recommend buying direct from retail so you know you are getting the authentic item and not wasting your money. Sometimes you can find good deals of MAC items on eBay also, but you really have to know your stuff. Do a little research. Go online and compare. Or go to the store to look at it if you are in doubt.

Here is another review / guide on Ebay
"1) And i don't mean to be rude but if you are seeing products of lots of 12 or 18, and they have generic pictures with NO NAMES, REAL LIFE PICTURES, OR ANY TYPE OF DESCRIPTIONS THEY ARE PROBABLY FAKE!
AGAIN NOT TO BE MEAN OR RUDE, BUT MOST SELLERS WHO HAVE THESE PRODUCTS FROM THAILAND OR CHINA, ARE PROBABLY SELLING YOU FAKE M.A.C. PRODUCTS.
2) PLEASE KNOW AND REMEMBER THAT M.A.C IS A COMPANY THAT STARTED IN CANADA...NOT CHINA...NOT JAPAN...BUT CANADA. MOST M.A.C. PRODUCTS ARE BEING MANUFACTURED IN FRANCE OR EVEN CANADA SEEING THAT IF YOU NOTICE MOST OF YOUR PACKAGES HAVE THE LANGUAGE OF FRENCH AS WELL AS ENGLISH (IF YOU ARE FROM THE STATES) BUT NEVER SHOULD YOUR BRUSHES HAVE THE INDENTION OF CHINA ON THEM...IF YOU GET THEM, THEN ARE FAKE!"

So if you search in Ebay you can find many of these review about MAC fake products that sold on Ebay.
My advise once again, do your research before buying.
