A seizure of approximately $120 million worth of fake branded cosmetics has taken place in Taizhou, Zhejiang province.

Counterfeit products included names such as Chanel, Estée Lauder, Lancôme and Christian Dior, with 15 suspects already arrested and 13 charged, according to Zjol.com.cn.

It comes in a time where counterfeit products are rife in China, with a previous haul of around 1,200 boxes of fake make-up products being found earlier this year with police uncovering numerous underground dens.
