Fake Kylie lip-kits containing human poo have been seized in a police raid
Fake Kylie lip-kits containing human poo have been seized in a police raid in the States.
An LA police officer has said that he and his team successfully raided over 20 stalls in the city's fashion district where they seized fake Kylie Cosmetics products, fake Urban Decay palettes, and many other counterfeit items.
Captain Marc Reina also said that the products contained "bacteria and human waste."
On Twitter, he wrote that "the best price is not always the best deal."

Reina also shared three photos of the selection of products seized by police earlier this week.
They included dupes of Kylie's makeup collection, Urban Decay's Naked palettes, and Sephora beauty blenders.
Although the captain did not state just how much human poo was found in the products, the fact that it was there at all is still a fairly grim realisation for anybody who has bought fake cosmetics before.
This isn't the first time a dupe of Kylie's lip-kits has caused controversy either.
A few months ago, a young woman revealed that she suffered a severe allergic reaction to a fake lip-kit she had bought online.
The Irish girl discovered that soon after using the lip-kit, her lips had swollen and her throat had closed up.
She was taken to A&E where she later recovered.
