LAPD Seize Counterfeit Makeup For Traces Of Feces

It’s hard to get your hands on the latest Kylie Cosmetics, KKW Beauty and Fenty Beauty drops. No matter how desperate you want the latest trendy beauty product, but can’t afford it or it’s sold out you should never buy counterfeit¬†makeup.

Counterfeit makeup is super dangerous because you don’t know what ingredients are in the products and they¬†aren’t held to any regulations. The Los Angeles Police Department, LAPD just seized $700,000 worth of counterfeit makeup for traces of feces.

According to ABC 7, the LAPD raided 21 different locations in the Fashion District in downtown L.A. They had fake products from Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay, NARS, MAC and others.

The police were tipped off when customers said they were getting rashes from using the products they bought in Santee Alley. The LAPD went undercover and purchased products to test. “They came back positive with a high level of bacterias and animal feces,” Detective Rick Ishitani said about the tests.

That’s right, animal feces! Those poor customers were putting poop on their faces and body, which is not only gross but is extremely dangerous and unhygienic.

“Those feces will just basically somehow get mixed into the product they’re manufacturing in their garage or in their bathroom – wherever they’re manufacturing this stuff,” he said.

The packaging for the fake products is almost identical to the real deal, so it’s hard to tell if a product is a dangerous counterfeit or it is the real deal. Six out of the 21 businesses owners were arrested and the rest recieved cease-and-desist orders.

Kim spoke out about the counterfeit bust and she and Kylie Jenner always speak out against counterfeits. In Kylie’s reality show, Life of Kylie she and her best friend Jordyn Wood tried to buy counterfeits.

There have been reports that some fake lip kits also have glue in them. Saving up money can be tough, but it’s worth it to not put animal poop or glue on your face.
