Fake Makeup Actually Has Rat Poop And Human Pee In It

Why you should be careful about where you get your makeup from.

Ever find an online deal on your favorite Benefit, Nars, or MAC products and think it might be too good to be true?

Like your favorite Orgasm blush for a fraction of the price?

Then it's probably, most definitely, a fake.

Fakes are BIG BUSINESS: In the UK alone, people spent more than $141 million last year on counterfeit cosmetics, most of which were purchased online.

So why should you care? Well...it turns out that counterfeit cosmetics are often jam-packed with really nasty stuff.

A report from the City of London Police found that counterfeit cosmetics contained everything from arsenic and mercury to lead, poison, and rat droppings.

What's more, lab tests found that "counterfeit perfume often contains poisonous chemicals including cyanide and even human urine."

And BONUS! Because these products are made in unregulated, unclean factories, they're often laced with rat droppings.

Remember, you're putting this stuff on your face.

Now go forth and buy poop-free makeup!
