We all know it’s a pretty bad idea to invest money in counterfeit make-up products, but even the most cynical shopper out there would never assume they might be rubbing human faeces onto their skin.
That’s exactly the situation a bunch of Kylie Jenner fans have now found themselves in after police in Los Angeles seized $700,000 worth of fake Kylie Cosmetics make-up palettes.
Let’s get checking out a bunch of times Kylie Jenner proved she was the Queen of selfies…
An officer confirmed that 21 shops and stalls in the Fashion District area are selling knock-off products that contain traces of bacteria and literal human waste. Grim.
Captain Marc Reina shared a snap of the kits in question, 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.”
It wasn’t just the Kylie Cosmetics range impacted by poop-gate, with a bunch of lookalike Urban Decay palettes also testing positive for human waste.
While Kylie is yet to comment on the police raid, older sister Kim Kardashian branded the situation “gross” and advised her 59 million followers to “never buy counterfeit products.”
Just two months ago, the 20-year-old warned fans to “not be fooled” by well-designed products and pointed out that her collection is only available to purchase through KylieCosmetics.com.
