The Kardashian sisters have been accused of stealing the name of a high-end make up line and using it for their own cosmetic brand, it has been revealed.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney have been working on their make-up line, Khroma Beauty, for quite some time – a cosmetics line that is set for launch next month from not-so-suave places such as CVS, Sears, and Ultra.
But now Michael Rey, the co-owner of Chroma Makeup in Beverly Hills has said that his brand “took 12 years of blood, sweat and tears to build,” and now boasts an A-List clientele, all for it to be exploited by the Kardashian power trio, the Mirror reported.
He has said that the Kardashians line have cheapened his products due to the confusion it creates in the marketplace.
Rey fears that his high-end customers will now become bemused and either head over to the Kardashians cosmetics or be embarrassed to say they wear Chroma in case of a mix-up.
According to TMZ.com Rey has already hired a legal team, but hasn''t contacted the Kardashian sisters just yet for a court battle.
He’s even reportedly drafted a letter to his customers stating that Chroma is in NO WAY associated with “the low budget cosmetic products” that the Kardashians are conjuring up.
