Seconding this entire post, especially the last part. Ben Nye is only sold by select websites, and Amazon and eBay are not
on the list! They're either counterfeit (which may be what your friend got) or resellers, which is against their agreement with Ben Nye (if they have one), and just generally bad juju. I buy my Ben Nye products from a store called Encore. They're a chain store, so there might
be one in your area, but they are few and far between.
On a side-note, Kryolan is regarded as being on the same level as Ben Nye, so if you find Kryolan instead, it might be worth a try. I think it's slightly more expensive than Ben Nye though, I can't remember.
