Kylie Jenner Responds to Knock-Off Cosmetics Being Sold Online
Fans of Kylie Jenner have been able to buy cosmetics from her collection for a while now, but Jenner just learned that some of her fans have been duped into buying potentially dangerous fakes, according to The Daily Mail.
“Hey guys,” Jenner began in a Snapchat video, “I’ve come across this website called kyliecosmeticsoutlet.com. It looks exactly like mine, but it’s not.”
Yes, it appears that, like many outlet stores the fake site sells lower-quality imitations of name-brand merchandise. Unlike other outlet stores, these imitations may contain dangerous ingredients like gasoline and glue.
“I want to be really, really clear and let you guys know that they only place to get my products is kyliecosmetics.com and anywhere else is fake,” she continued. “The ingredients that they’re using are…also really, really dangerous, which is my biggest concern.”
She’s not kidding either. Fans have filled Jenner’s Twitter with horror stories of fake products. One woman literally glued her lips together using knock-off lipstick. Jenner shared the video with the rest of her followers. Another follower said her mom had bought a lip kit off of eBay that contained gasoline.
Omg I can’t even look 🙈🙈🙈 https://t.co/ia72MYMg4N

One red flag that the website was fake? Jenner pointed out was it was selling powdered foundation. Kylie Jenner would never sell powdered foundation.
