In a tweet, LAPD Captain Marc Reina said that some of the makeup was found to contain bacteria and human waste.

About $700,000 worth of counterfeit cosmetics were seized by the Los Angeles Police Department in raids on 21 locations in the L.A.'s Santee Alley fashion district.

Other brands that were mimicked include Urban Decay, MAC, and NARS. "The best price is not always the best deal!" However, when you see your favorite products offered at 50% to 75% off (and not directly from the brand retailer), this is most likely a counterfeit. The investigation was initiated after customers called the actual cosmetic companies with complaints about rashes and bumps caused by the products. When their lab tested the contents, they discovered the products were full of shit - figuratively and literally. "They came back positive with a high level of bacterias and animal feces", Ishitani said. He explained this kind of contamination simply wouldn't happen with legitimate products because they're manufactured in proper facilities that adhere to safety standards.
