The packaging can look convincingly real, but don't be fooled by the makeup's extremely low price tag. Twenty-one stores in the city's Fashion District were raided, leading to the massive confiscation of counterfeit cosmetics.

"Those faeces will just basically somehow get mixed into the product they're manufacturing in their garage or in their bathroom - wherever they're manufacturing this stuff".

A similar bust was conducted last February after Los Angeles Police Department officials received complaints from customers who got rashes and bumps after using counterfeit cosmetics, Ishitani said.

During the course of the raids 6 owners of establishments carrying the dodgy goods were arrested.

The FBI and Central Vice Units helped in the raid, according to local NBC affiliate, arresting six people on charges of trademark violations and issued cease-and-desist orders on 15 businesses.

Police seized hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of products which were cheap imitations of popular brands such as Urban Decay and Kylie Cosmetics.

The indictment says the charges are based on evidence obtained from Brunson's phone, as well as information from witnesses. North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis and Sam Brownback, U.S. ambassador-at-large for religious freedoms, observed the trial.

In advance of the raids, the police had been tipped off by some of the brands whose products were being faked by the counterfeiters. The complainants had one thing in common: They bought the product in the Los Angeles fashion district. As for the bogus products, they are made where contaminants are rampant.

You might think it's a harmless bargain - palettes and kits are bloody expensive after all - but unless you want poo on your face, it's really worth paying the extra.
