The Financial and personal toll of knockoff cosmetics
Counterfeit cosmetics have become one of the cosmetics industry's biggest headache. A tidal wave of bogus products are flooding the marketplace, and it seems no one is immune. M.A.C, Benefit, Nars, Urban Decay and Bobbi Brown cosmetics are just a few of the top brands that have been knocked off.
Diversion is another problem plaguing in the industry. It's a term used to describe any product offered for sale at an outlet that is not authorized by the manufacture.
