    Tati forgot to mention that buying counterfeit products is also bad because it puts billions into the pockets of the Communist Chinese government.

    Unrelated, but where did you get this sweater? It's beautiful!
    Related, I have the utmost respect for you for making this video. Definitely needs to be said and it helps that you're such a big influencer that many people will see this and awareness will be greatly spread. Thank you for this, Tati and another big thanks for being such a great, humble, and honest person. You are my favorite! xoxo

    I absolutely love your eyeshadow palette but I rather wait for your palette to restock before I buy one off of E Bay any day! The stuff sold on E Bay isn't guaranteed real or it's mostly used stuff most of the time that people are trying to get rid of. Plus I'm not paying $150.00+ for a Textured Neutral Palette when I can wait and get the real one for $45.00 ...sorry not happening..I can wait thank you! 😉😘💕💋

    Honestly I love Tati so much, but I could never see myself spending like $50 to get it, no matter how good the formula. I mean, it’s eyeshadow. It’s powder. This is why I go for drugstore, but I really want to support her.

      @Patricia Johnson nore can i, and Tatis not saying to just buy high end make up. I get drug store because it's what I can afford, she's saying don't buy the counterfeit makeup because you don't know what's in it, and whatevers is could harm you.

    Love how honest she was in this video. Some things are about money and like another comment said and Tati said, THIS IS A JOB! This is her business. Of course she wants to make money because who doesn’t want to be successful. So glad she is open and because of this you can tell that making makeup is something she truly loves!

    Good for you Tati! I buy from Sephora or The Bay (Canadian quality dept store) and mail order for Ulta from the states. Never buy makeup or skincare from Amazon. Hoping that is safe.

    Ah! See, this is why I love you. I appreciate so much how you’re willing to be straight up and completely honest with everything, even when it comes down to topics that can be as controversial as talking about having money can be.
    My boyfriend will sit down with me while I’m watching RU-clip and I’m pretty sure he loves watching your videos as much as I do 🤗🙃
    Keep doing what you’re doing: your love for what you do shows and I feel you deserve everything you’ve worked this hard for. Much happiness and success for the new year, Tati!

    ‼️THIS IS NO JOKE‼️ Please listen to what she saying… I ended up getting some type of infection in the tear duct of my eye which caused scar tissue to build up.. Not only has affected my vision but I also ended up having to have surgery to reopen my tear ducts. This doesn't just affect the eyes… Because your tear ducks are connected in your nose and I'll have severe allergies to many environmental things that I've never dealt with before… My eyes constantly run my face gets swollen and it's hard to breathe. All because I tried a mascara that someone else purchased as a gift but from a reseller thinking it was the same thing as the original! JUST DONT RISK IT! Thank you again TATI for trying to make people aware ❤️

    I have to say that I'm very glad you qualified your statement about "voting with your wallet" later in the video bc while I understood what you were talking about really is making our feelings & opinions known by spending in ways that gets the point across...I think in a country that is as divided as ours with one side that has an agenda which is clearly more financially motivated & is so to the detriment of all else it's important to remember that when we start bending & looking the other way even when we know something is wrong we are allowing and enabling those whose greed & desire for power is paramount to all else to believe their actions and behaviors are acceptable.

    Hey Tati, okay so I'm sure you've heard about the latest issue with the ciate London marbled blusher in the December Boxycharm, what is your opinion on the whole matter? As a consumer I do feel a little betrayed and will continue to until either ciate or boxy address the issue. For those who dont know, ciate London used to advertise this particular blush as talc free, on the packages in the boxy, the second ingredient listed is talc, when addressed, no response was given all ciate did was take the line of formulated without talc, out of the description

    I’m not going to get on here and start critiquing people that buy makeup off of AliExpress or elsewhere. That’s not my gig...I’m not here to belittle anyone. However, I would advise consumers to be knowledgeable about what they’re purchasing whether it’s from AliExpress or Saks. What I do question is why beauty influencers do not speak about this problem until it affects them personally I.e their own wallets...that’s not just this mention by the way, it includes all of them.

    The sad/ scary part is that people who buy counterfeit are so proud and think they are better because they got a bargain. Those people worry me. For peace of mind and health reasons just spend the extra $10

    I bought Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizers 2 years ago on Amazon totally convinced it was real and I used it daily. For the past year I have REALLY battled with my skin: acne, staph infections, cellulitis, eczema and MORE. After watching that Broken episode I can't shake the thought that that was the cause of my problems and that it in fact was really good fakes. 😢

    I love how you say we vote with our money. I took a sociology class last semester and we talked about human trafficking and how we should stop it. One of the things we talked about was attacking supply vs. demand. As long as the demand is there, the supply will find a way. I totally agree that we need to eliminate the demand of counterfeit products because that's the only way it'll go away.
