Do you wear makeup? We asked 7th grader Julianna Schepanski, She says she wears makeup and it takes her about seven minutes to do. She uses foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, eyeshadow, mascara, and highlighter. Recent studies show that more than half of US 12-14 year olds use mascara (54 percent), as well as eyeshadow, eyeliner, and eyebrow pencils (54 percent). Meanwhile, some 45 percent use foundation/concealer, 30 percent use blush/bronzer and 10 percent use hair coloring products. Is this makeup real? Some of it can be, but some of it is not.
In Los Angeles, California, there are makeup stands, and they have things like Kylie Cosmetics, Naked, Anastasia, and so many more things, but they we caught… This is fake makeup.
ABC7 News says : The investigation started after customers called the actual cosmetic companies complaining of bumps and rashes from the products.
When customers revealed they bought the products in Santee Alley, the Anti-Piracy Unit swooped in and did undercover buys to test the products.
“They came back positive with a high level of bacteria and animal feces,” Ishitani said.
So, next time you wear makeup, be careful.
