LAPD Seizes $700000 Worth of Bootleg Makeup, Some Contained Animal Feces

The fake products included brands such as Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay, MAC and NARS.

The counterfeit products were uncovered in a raid of 21 stores in the city's Fashion District, notes Los Angeles television station KABC.

The Los Angeles Police Department tested the cosmetics and found high levels of bacteria.

Because these products are often being formulated in unsanitary and unregulated environments (like people's bathrooms or garages) they can get contaminated easily. The LAPD went undercover and purchased products to test.

That's right, animal feces!

A task force hit 21 locations in the Santee Alley shopping area Thursday and found that all of them were selling counterfeit name-brand makeup, Detective Rick Ishitani told KTLA. Those poor customers were putting poop on their faces and body, which is not only gross but is extremely unsafe and unhygienic.

The packaging for the fake products is nearly identical to the real deal, so it's hard to tell if a product is a risky counterfeit or it is the real deal.

Authorities said, six owners of raided companies were arrested while the rest received cease-and-desist orders.

Following news of the raid, Kylie's sister, Kim Kardashian, tweeted her reaction to the raid, saying "SO GROSS!"

"Quite a few of my friends own pieces of fake makeup - especially the Kylie lip kits - knowing that it's fake". When I'm not scrolling through various timeline's I'm researching skin care regiments and watching the Cleveland Cavaliers.
