Christian Louboutin:

• First, Christian Louboutin boxes are made from a dense, hard cardboard box. The box in the background of the left photo looks thin and is wrinkled in several places. This is not the norm for authentic Louboutins.

• The lining on the inside of the wrong shoe is coarse and thick.

• It is common for counterfeiters to put heel taps in a plastic zippered bag.

• For authentic Louboutins, heel taps will come in a tiny red Christian Louboutin draw-string bag.

• Louboutin floors are made of leather covered with a beautiful red lacquer. The fake on the left doesn't look like leather.

• The Louboutin stamp should look like it is imprinted on the leather.

Chanel:

• The Chanel bag on the left is authentic.

• The most obvious differences to the untrained eye can be seen in the last picture of the serial Chanel card in the photo on the right.

• Chanel's serial cards never have holographic numbers or borders.

• On the fake, the card has multi-colored reflections.

• It should always be gold on an authentic one.

• 11127595 is a commonly used number for counterfeit Chanel.

• While it is possible for an Authentic to have this number, the chances of coming across this number and the item that is authentic are negligible, as each serial number is unique to each bag.

• The serial number also indicates that the item was produced sometime 2006-2008; This is not possible for this bag.

• Finally, the font for the serial number is completely wrong.
