When I started working and makeup was a requirement for us to wear, a colleague of mine shared that as a teen she was so into makeup that she bought a lipstick kit made in China at some Chinese shop. As many of you might have seen in Chinese shops, a lot of makeup packaging from China are really eye-catching. There are eye shadow palettes that are heart shaped, lipsticks palettes in gold packages and powders in cute compacts. All of them are cheap ranging from $2- $4. When she tried on the lipstick, the next day she woke up with a swollen lip. She told me never to buy makeup made in China.
