Reality TV personality, makeup mogul and youngest self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner has been sued for straight-up stealing another cosmetic line.
According to a TMZ report, a company named Sheree Cosmetics has sued Kylie and her company, Kylie Cosmetics, for reportedly stealing its “Born to Sparkle” makeup collection.
As per the documents obtained, the company claims it has its own “Born to Sparkle” collection but Kylie started making her own “Born to Sparkle” eyeshadow with similar colors and packaging.
Kylie’s birthday collection features lip gloss, lipstick, lip liner, and glitter eyes, and it launched on August 6. The “Born to Sparkle” eyeshadow was part of that line. Sheree Cosmetics says it filed for a trademark on August 30, 2018.
Recently, Jenner announced a Kylie Cosmetics Halloween Collection. In a series of Instagram Stories, she shared the new products including a glitter lip gloss, a Vampire-themed lip kit in shade “bite me,” and a series of highlighters. She’s also launching a mummy-themed nine-pan eyeshadow palette. Shades have names such as “Nightmare,” “Bat Sh*t Crazy,” and “Hey Pumpkin.”

Meanwhile, Jenner had got her very own custom filter on Instagram. The cosmetic mogul has topped the 2018 Instagram Rich List, having earned one million dollars (Rs 6,87,15,000) on each post.
Recently, Kylie Cosmetics announced the launch of its products at Ulta Beauty, online and in retail stores across the country.
Not only this, the financial magazine Forbes estimated that Kylie’s worth is estimated at USD 900 million, making her not just the richest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan but to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever. Currently, Facebook’s brainchild Mark Zuckerberg is the current record holder of the title, whose worth was estimated at USD1 billion at the age of 23.
Kylie Cosmetics was founded by Kylie Jenner in February 2016. Since then, it has earned a revenue of USD 630 million. Jenner owns 100 percent of the company.
The publication had described Jenner as USD 900 million Cosmetics Queen.
Jenner is the youngest daughter of Kris and Caitlyn, formerly Olympic gold medalist Bruce. Her sister is supermodel Kendall. Her half-sisters are Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian.
