If you’re a girl and an Instagrammer, then you surely know about the social media sensation, “Merium Pervaiz”. I too liked her once but after knowing about the hidden truth of her cosmetics brand “Merium Rervaiz Cosmetics”, I, now utterly disheartened, stopped believing in the internet world.
Merium Pervaiz is a blogger, Instagrammer, and YouTuber. A while ago, she launched her own makeup brand by the name “Merium Pervaiz Cosmetics”.
What’s her brand offering?
Right now, her brand is offering few makeup products:
Curly Mascara - 1000 PKR
Eyelashes- 1400 PKR
BOUNTY eyeshadow pallete- 4000 PKR
To be honest, Products are very expensive as it is a local brand. People can opt for international brands with that amount of money.
But, How is it a scam?
A few days ago. I came across a video of another blogger, Dr. Zernain (ig:unicorndreams25) who proved that she is faking it. The whole news disturbed me as I was Merium’s old follower. So, I researched it all by myself.
Chinese local business…
Originally, the products she is offering, are all made in China. It is a very common business in China, as they make customize products for you to sell with your name on them.
"Alibaba" is one of the greatest website in the world, founded by a Chinese businessman, Jack Ma. These “Merium Pervaiz cosmetic” products are available on that website.
Let’s take a look at “Mascara”!
This is the curly Mascara by Merium Pervaiz worth 1000/-
Now, look at this mascara, I found on the Ali baba website available on customization.
So far, It is not wrong to do business like this but one should not lie to state that it’s one’s own brand. But, can you see the price difference? This Chinese mascara is barely worth 150-200 PKR (after conversion) and she is selling it of 1000/- to our masoom awam. All I can think that she just wants to cash the love, she receives from people.
Don’t they both have a great resemblance too?

The difference in the number of colors?
Don’t worry! Everything can be customized.
Is it halal to make that much profit only by deceiving people?
She literally sold out her all stock in the first week making 60-70 lacs on the products worth few thousand.
