Q: Is the designer make-up and perfume at markets all fake?

I've seen famous perfume like Chanel for sale at markets for as little as 10 kuai a bottle and products like L'Occitane hand cream and Dior mascara for 20 kuai or less. The packaging really looks like the real deal but I'm skeptical because they're so cheap. Is it possible that they're confiscated real items from airport customs? That's what I'm hoping....

Yes. If it's at a market and it's ridiculously cheap then it is a fake, guaranteed!

I give you my secret technique to realize if fake or not. Call the vendor, look at her in the eye with an inquisitive look, then ask her "why so cheap?". Most of the time the will look down left. It shows they are embarrassed. If they keep confident, then it's real.

Did I tell you about my 550RMB (supposed to be 700RMB) iPhone4? When it arrives in 10 weeks, it will be awesome.

yes some are fake and some are not depending where are you buying it from.... carefulness and understanding of the quality can make you save alot of money... but the entire products are not fake. chinese people are not that much innocent to be using fake expensive product without having objection for it... chinese government will take a bit of care for its people in this regard i guess. its corrupt but not entirely i guess.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
