PEORIA, AZ — A celebrity makeup heist in Los Angeles has a connection to an Arizona woman who sells makeup out of her house.

On Tuesday, influencer and cosmetic maker Jeffree Star posted a video on YouTube saying his warehouse had been burglarized. The $2.5 million worth of missing products are part of an unreleased cosmetics line. Star said some of the stolen concealers had surfaced on the black market.

In the video, the cosmetic guru specifically called out one woman who leaked a photo of the concealer and tried to sell it to customers on a Facebook group. ABC15 Investigators tracked down the woman, Tessa Roloson, who lives in Peoria.

"In the moment, it was like, 'Wow, I can get these concealers,'" Roloson said. "I have access to them. This would be great, but as I sat back and thought about it, it was like, 'This is really weird.'"

Roloson claimed she never possessed any of the stolen product, and she said the picture she posted came from a supplier she met on the Facebook Marketplace. She said she was told the product came from kits used for public relations. Roloson said she has received death threats through social media because she posted the stolen concealer.

On Twitter, Star said they are slowly unraveling all the evidence and the makeup black market is "so twisted."
