Kylie Jenner has successfully transformed her beauty empire from lip kits to eyeshadow palettes and beyond. And if  you’ve ever experienced the frustration that is the Kylie Cosmetics website during a restock, you know very well how daunting of a task it is to successfully get your hands on her sought-after items. But if you find yourself faced with a sold out burgundy palette, Jenner has a word of warning: Do not, under any circumstances, seek out her products elsewhere.

The 19-year-old beauty guru took to Snapchat Wednesday to announce her concern for her fans’ safety, warning that other websites are selling her products, and they’re all fake. The star said, “So, I want to be really really clear and let you guys know that the only place to get my products is kyliecosmetics.com and anywhere else is fake.”

And it’s not just the fraud that she’s upset about — it’s the quality of the ingredients in the bogus products. “The ingredients in these products are also really really dangerous, which is my biggest concern,” she says, adding, “I feel responsible to give you guys a warning that there are people out there who are trying to steal your money and I just want you guys to have the very best.”

Jenner shows fans a glimpse of the counterfeit products online, proving that they look nearly identical to hers, adding that one buyer claimed that her lips were stuck together due to glue in a lip kit.

“Make sure you guys check the URL because these other websites are making fake product, it might look exactly like mine but it’s not mine,” she added.

You’ve been warned by King Kylie herself.
