Fake Kylie Jenner lip-kits and Urban Decay palettes containing actual human faeces have been seized by police from 21 shops and stalls in LA’s Fashion District.

Yes, you did read that correctly. Actual human poo.

Counterfeit cosmetics are cropping up everywhere but this particular discovery in America is seriously grim. 

Captain Marc Reina shared a photo of the makeup in question on Twitter, writing: “Busted! Major Task Force hits 21 locations in the @LAFashionDist and nets $700,000 in Counterfeit cosmetics found to contain bacteria and human waste. The best price is not always the best deal! #ProtectingOurCommunity.”

Kylie has previously warned her fans to “not be fooled” by fake products, reminding them her collection is only available via KylieCosmetics.com. However, this doesn’t seem to have stopped some fans who purchased the conterfeit cosmetics and experienced adverse effects, like rashes and bumps.

Six people were arrested in the raid all will be charged with trademark violations, while fifteen others were served cease and desist orders not to continue selling fake makeup.

Rubbing makeup containing actual traces of poo on your face is pretty icky and shows that while high-end products may be pricey it's always better to buy the real thing rather than a cheaper, fake alternative.
