Real vs. Fake Liz Lisa labels

9:31:00 PM 24 Comments A+ a-

Hey everyone~

As promised today I'll be posting comparisons for real and fake Liz Lisa labels.

Before I start I just want to say, the ONLY ways to buy authentic Liz Lisa clothing is through the official Liz Lisa site by using Tenso, or through the Liz Lisa Rakuten site. I have noticed recently, MANY new sites have been opening up, claiming they get their Liz Lisa clothes from the original factories, that's why they can sell them cheaper and sometimes labels are cut off. That is all a load of bull, DO NOT believe any of them. They DO NOT get their clothes from the original Liz Lisa factory, they get them all from Taobao. Taobao sells heaps of fake Liz Lisa clothing, and for a cheap price too! All of these sites just buy from Taobao, then they charge 3x the price they paid, major rip off. If you guys aren't sure whether or not a site (or someone) is selling authentic Liz Lisa and would want to know, just comment on this post and I'll try reply to it when I can.

I have thrown away most of my Liz Lisa labels but fortunately I have kept one! The item was a huge coat I bought for half price cos it was on special lol. Anyway, when you buy Liz Lisa clothing the tag is bigger, however the sales assistant rips off half of it to keep for sales purposes I think.

So first up, here are what real Liz Lisa tags/labels look like




So the front of the Liz Lisa tag, it's a pinkish colour. Let's compare the real/fake tags

Sorry for the bad lighting, but as you can see, the real one is darker.

All of the tags:


See a difference in colour? The real one is darker than the fake ones.

But, it's hard to compare if you don't have the real tag right? Well let's look at this. Put the tags under some light


The REAL Liz Lisa label has a matte finish, the fake ones don't and will look shiny in light.

Now, let's turn the tags around.
Here is what an authentic tag should look like:

The price is in Yen if you get it from Japan. Price at the top is with tax, price below that is without tax. The colour is a NUMBER. Size is a NUMBER.

Now the fakes:

They are all the same! Colour says "ブラック" which reads "Burakku = Black". None of the items I bought were black. Size is F? The number is exactly the same for all the numbers.

Let's compare real & fake

Completely different right?

Let's shine it under light again

As you can see, the REAL Liz Lisa tag shines under light. The fakes have a matte finish. Other way around? :S

Now let's compare the labels:

Fake, enough said.


Fake one says "Liz & Lisa"


The fake one is made out of shiny material. Authentic one isn't.

Now this last one is hard. It looks so real that I had a hard time comparing it to the real ones. I used 3 different authentic Liz Lisa clothing to compare and finally found out the difference.



Looks the same, right?

I tried comparing with something else:



Ok, so what I think is the difference. The authentic label, the "Liz Lisa" is more precise. On the fake, the "Liz Lisa" writing is kind of fading out, kind of looks like the colour had ran a bit. Also the colours are different. Now this fake is really good, I was having a hard time comparing them. As you see in the last photo, the "Liz Lisa" on the authentic one is darker, more precise. On the fake, you can see that it's not as clear, almost looks kind of blurry. But let me tell you know, looking at them both in person, if someone just gave them both to me to examine, I would think that they are both real. They are just so similar (which is kind of cool but it's annoying at the same time haha)

So that's it for the comparison. Hope it helped you guys. Any questions just comment on this post and I will try get back to you!

it's kinda hard to tell when it comes to the tags attached to the clothes itself. :/ but thank you for comparing this. :) Loving your blog :) Definitely going to follow you! :3

Thanks for this; I've actually been eying the new vent store for the autumn collection... I want so much, because a lot of it, like the frilly skorts aren't sold in the US (for people my age/size, at least). They need to go on sale a little more though. I've only gotten fakes once (first order actually), and only one of them had a label on the clothing, so it was already a dead giveaway. :)

Wow, I'm starting to wonder if there is anywhere in the US that sells authentic Liz Lisa. I didn't even think about that I might be buying fakes =[. I haven't bought from any of the stores you mentioned but I bought from others like cececat (aka mina kekoya or sugarfairyshop) and now i'm starting to wonder if its real! I also recently bought a dress without ANY tag. Like usually there will be at least the tag attached to the clothes, but there is none =[ plus it was SO EXPENSIVE! It is a reputable shop considering a lot of the other brands are real, but it makes me think when the supposedly liz lisa clothing didn't have any tags T^T!

U're right! I've asked Minky if the items are strictly from Japan. Here's what Minky replied,

"No, they're not strictly from Japan at all (only a few items in store).
Liz Lisa and Snidel items are manufactured in China and we arrange to get them directly from the factories there as surplus or ex-factory stock. Occasionally they can be untagged, but there are no defects. Hope this helps! ^^"

I wonder if Minky got the items from Taobao, too... But selling it in quite unreasonable price & high in shipping...

What they said is true about the clothes being manufactured in China, a lot of the authentic Liz Lisa items I've bought from Japan are made in China. However I don't believe when any of those shops say they get it from the original manufactures themselves. All the shops I've seen that say that, they use photos from taobao sellers, some of the stuff they put up for sale aren't even Liz Lisa and they say it is :/

I saw some of the clothing in that store and the skirts from the spring 2011 collection are definitely fake because Liz Lisa never made skirts using the material they showed in the photo. But yeah, I'm fine with shops selling fakes but I hate it when shops claim they are real and overcharge people :(

I do believe that there is a difference in the care instruction tags on the inside of the clothes as well, you should check ;)

I got a question! I've been to Japan and bought authentic Liz Lisa as well~ When they checked out my items, they tore off the bottom half of the tags along the perforated lines (just like your authentic ones only have half of the tag). There is someone claiming to sell real Liz Lisa, and the tag looks real, just the bottom half is still there... Does that mean it's a fake? I'm wondering because I never ordered from Liz Lisa online, so maybe if we ordered online, they don't remove the second part of the tag?

I'm actually not too sure.. I've never ordered authentic Liz Lisa online either. But yeah all of the authentic Liz Lisa I bought in Japan and Hong Kong, the bottom half of the tags have all been torn off. But I'm not too sure to be honest :(

Oh I do buy from there! But one piece I bought looks like Liz Lisa except there's no tag >~< so I'm really unsure!

If you are ordering from the Liz Lisa online, for sure they won't tear the bottom half of the liz lisa tag. I know this because I recently made an order from rakuten liz lisa and it came with the purple bag too. :3

Could you show the inside tags of the blouse in your youtube video below? I have bought one of the same online, and not sure if it's authentic.

Was the skirt you ordered actually advertised as Liz Lisa? I asked that shop about fakes and she told me if they know it's not real LL then they won't advertise it which I respected her honesty at aleast. She told me Liyalisa is a registered brand in china and sent me the link: http://www.liyalisa.com/

Even if they say that, the fact that they sold "Liya Lisa" items is a bit dodgy. The "Liya Lisa" items are all replicas of Liz Lisa items so I don't think it's a legit brand. The site just looks like a "wholesale-dress.net" website to me so doesn't look legit.
I saw them advertise some skirts as Liz Lisa, so probably the skirts have the Liz Lisa label on them, but I'm 100% sure that Liz Lisa never made skirts using that material before.

Thanks kim for posting this, I had bought a tote liz lisa bag on ebay that had just came in, not sure if I should return it to the sender, I was really worried that it would turn out fake. I had bought jimmy choo bags and Prada bags in the Philippines before so I thought I could tell if this tote was a fake but it was so hard untill I found your website. The tag on my liz Liza seems to look like the one you have but it's a pastel pink and the liz Liza word is a darker pink matte on the outside and a bit shinny in the inside. Thanks again kim!!
