The makeup, brushes, etc., they sell are all FAKE MAC products. They are NOT MAC, they are cheap replicas of MAC products.
I have not bought from them, thankfully. I was waiting a few weeks until my excitment died down and I could think straight on what I was going to buy in stead of going hog wild. Good thing, huh?
The products might be ok to use, some people (from YouTube) have done reviews on the fake MAC and said they work just fine. Others say how awful they are. I don't know from personal experience how well they work.
There are sellers on eBay saying the makeup is real. Some of it is, some of it is NOT. I found some great videos on YouTube that is really helpful for detecting whether or not the products are fake.
Here are the links to the videos I found most helpful:

My Opinion of the whole thing...
We all know stealing a name is wrong. I am not sure how the make up works. Like I said above, some people say they are great, others say they are not. I will probably buy some just to see if they are good or not. Actually, I do have 1 fake MAC eyeshadow. I thought it was real, but it isn't. It's a pressed single in the color Patina. I actually really like it, the color pay off is really good, and I got it for only $1. (This was on eBay.)
I am going to get some of the brushes just because they are such a great deal. However, I am only going to be buying from the sites that allow a return for full money back garentee. I asked http://www.cosmetics-wholesale.com/ they DO NOT allow returns unless the product broke in the mail.
brush111.com DOES allow returns with no restocking fee. I might buy them from them... They don't offer PayPal though, so I'm not sure.
So, yes, stealing names is a bad thing to do. Don't do it. That said, I don't care if they are real or not as long as they are good. I will probaby get some and do a review. We'll see. If you want to see more reviews on YouTube (from other people) I can leave links, so just let me know in the comments below and I'll find the best links.
