Fake cosmetics bust: LAPD emphasizes dangers of using counterfeit products

Counterfeit makeup seized during an LAPD raid in the Fashion District

"If you're getting something that's 50 percent off, 75 percent off, it tells you that it's bad", Ishitani told CNN.

The LAPD confiscated approximately $700K in counterfeit makeup in Santee Alley, an L.A. fashion district.

The raid was a result of complaints from customers stating Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay, NARS, and even M.A.C. products were giving them breakouts and rashes. When their lab tested the contents, they discovered the products were full of shit - figuratively and literally.

The cosmetics seized during that bust were tested and officials found high levels of bacteria, including traces of animal feces and urine.
