Readers, I nearly suffered from whiplash as I did a double take while shopping at SASA (Sungei Wang Plaza, KL) recently. I stumbled upon a set of brushes which looked totally like some other brand and when I looked closely.....the brand name was not the same.

Check this out! Its called Fenling - Made in China. AND the resemblance to the original is astounding right down to the string used to tie the brushes together! Just below the brand Fenling are the words Earth Friendly Beauty (it is not clear in the picture).

I managed to dupe the SA into thinking I was looking to make a phone call on my phone and distracted her with questions about another product in a different aisle before I quickly took a picture.

Compare that up there to this down here. The ORIGINAL Ecotools. Same right?

It really upsets me that these stores have resorted to selling fakes so blatantly. Next time you pick up what you think is Ecotools at SASA....look again, you could end up with Fenling and the guarantee of soft eco friendly brushes may not be true.

This is really horrid :(

Nice post. However, maybe the ecotools brushes and the 'fake' brushes are from the same manufacturers. I know that many clothing lines have the same manufacturers.

Wow, I can't believe a major store like SASA would sell such fakes! It's almost an exact copy!
