CNN reports the Los Angeles Police Department confiscated $700,000 worth of counterfeit makeup, including a knockoff brand of Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics, that tested positive for animal bacteria and waste.

Trending: Will Shinzo Abe Resign? Detective Rick Ishitani of the LAPD told the news station that the cosmetics' price reveals whether it is counterfeit or not. "If you're getting something that's 50 percent off, 75 percent off - it tells you that it's bad", he said. The investigation was initiated after customers called the actual cosmetic companies with complaints about rashes and bumps caused by the products. Even though numerous products looked exactly like their genuine counterparts, they tested positive for poop, bacteria and other products that definitely don't belong on a person's face. Ishitani said the only way some people find out is when they open the product, which isn't allowed at the businesses in Santee Alley. She then advised buyers of the cosmetics line to "never buy counterfeit products!" The bacteria included traces of animal feces and urine.
