Kylie Jenner has taken to Snapchat to warn her fans about "really, really dangerous" fake versions of her lip kits, some of which have left beauty addicts with their lips glued together. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star explained that her eponymous website is the only place where her products are sold, and urged her followers to be careful when purchasing make-up.

In a series of short clips, Kylie explained that her team had looked into the almost-identical fake products and noticed that the ingredients were "so bad for you".
Kylie Jenner has warned fans about "dangerous" fake lip kits
"So someone just tweeted me one of their fake products and they said it has glue in it!" she exclaimed. "Glue in it people!"
Kim Kardashian's younger sister made sure to emphasise that the legitimate kits are only available on her eponymous website, despite various outlets claiming to be associated with the star.
"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," the 19-year-old said. "Make sure you guys check the URL because these other websites are making fake product.
She urged fans to buy her products only from her website
"It might look exactly like mine but it's not mine and the ingredients that they are using in these fake products are also really, really dangerous which is my biggest concern."
The beauty guru explained that she was made aware of the situation after her team began receiving complaints from fans who were left disappointed by the quality of their orders.
"I'll get tweets sometimes saying your orders haven't arrived or the colour's not right and I'll have my customer services team look into it," she said. "And after we look into it and try to get to the bottom of it, it always comes down to the fact that these orders were not placed with kyliecosmetics.com."
She explained some fans found glue in the ingredients of the fake versions
The success of her lip kits sees them selling out within minutes of re-stocks, so it comes as no surprise that Kylie was keen to ensure her fans are not buying fake or dangerous products.
"I feel responsible to give you guys a warning because there's people out there that are trying to steal your money and I just want you guys to have the very best," she said. "Again, only shop at kyliecosmetics.com if you want my products because anywhere else, they don't have them."
She added: "It's fake and dangerous, and it's the same price so don't really see the point."
