Yeah, a few things about that. I normally like Mango Tea and his spin on things, but I was a little disappointed when I saw it in his video. Here's whyCaloriecounter123 wrote:Just watching Mango tea's video and I have a question for Yada, I remember reading the barcode post, but I can't remember if the research proved that it was from Aurora cosmetics?

OMG Yada's research is on his video!!
1.) A smaller drama channel suspected early on that Kuckian Cosmetics was using Aurora as a private label. Tea Spill saw this video, yanked it and put it on her channel, and it was probably the most poorly received video she's done, as this time, she wasn't taking receipts from GG.
2.) Although the swatches appear similar on camera, the formulations are different. They do say though, "any design cardboard/paper eyeshadow can be customized as per your request," but I feel like the language isn't very clear there. Are you customizing the packaging it comes in? Or are you customizing the formulations? It's also unclear if Kuckian's products perform the same as Aurora.
3.) The options to customize products look nothing like John's final result. I feel like it would be a huge mess for him to get the cosmetics here and the packaging elsewhere if it's a private label.
4.) As yada said here: (viewtopic.php?f=540&t=33175&p=2814901&h ... e#p2814901), Aurora cosmetics denied in an email to another GGer supplying Kuckian Cosmetics. The person who pulled the information pulled the wrong number, and was incorrect about the way the barcode system works.
That said, his cosmetics were still made in China, and I give Mango some credit for properly citing his source of information.
