Counterfeit makeup seized during an LAPD raid in the Fashion District

One of the brands being knocked off was Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics.

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.

A Los Angeles Police Department task force seized $700,000 worth of counterfeit cosmetics after raiding 21 locations in downtown's Fashion District, an LAPD spokesman said. Detective Rick Ishitani of the LAPD told the news station that the cosmetics' price reveals whether it is counterfeit or not.

Fortunato Perri, Worley's attorney, has not responded to calls from PennLive, but he spoke with ABC6 Action News on Sunday . Police got a call of a auto blocking the roadway on the 1300 block of Pattison Avenue around 6 a.m. on April 15.

The counterfeit products were uncovered in a raid of 21 stores in the city's Fashion District, notes Los Angeles television station KABC. Caught off guard when the customers said they purchased the beauty products in Santee Alley, the Anti-Piracy Unit went undercover to test the products. As for the bogus products, they are made where contaminants are rampant. Those poor customers were putting poop on their faces and body, which is not only gross but is extremely unsafe and unhygienic. The packaging can look convincingly real, but don't be fooled by the makeup's extremely low price tag. Fifteen other people caught in the raid were served with cease and desist orders. In Kylie's reality show, Life of Kylie she and her best friend Jordyn Wood tried to buy counterfeits.
