I've been pointed in this direction by one astute and observant member of eBay who suggested I ask you knowledgeable people on this board.
My issue is regarding Benefit Coralista blushes. I am certain I have a fake (counterfeit) on my hands and am in the midst of a Paypal claim (waiting to hear from other party aka seller). I have already consulted with the actual manufacturer of the blush, Benefit Cosmetics, as well as Sephora Customer Service, the second at the seller's urging (the seller finally replied to my queries/messages, albeit via eBay - and not Paypal! - in the wee hours of this morning insisting quite vehemently that he does not carry fakes, and that it is a crime, which I of course am all too aware of). He claims he got his versions from "value sets" sold by Sephora "years ago." BUT Benefit and Sephora both told me they never once offered the version that he, the eBay seller, sold to me...
My question to you all, after getting confirmation upfront from the horse's mouth (or two horses' mouths, if you will), is this: have any of you ever encountered an AUTHENTIC Benefit Coralista blush with a foil sticker featuring the Coralista logo pressed onto the top of the box instead of the logo being printed directly onto the box?
Your advice, knowledge and expertise are of course very much appreciated.
