Meretricious

Meretricious

<merr-reh-trish-shush>

cheap; gaudy; fake;

faking something in a flashy or  false way.

Her clothes were meretricious in nature. They looked expensive but they were cheap.

Memory trick:
meretricious reminds of "mere tricks us".

Used at work:
Your business cards are meretricious. They look good even though you printed them yourself.
