LOS ANGELES — The Kardashian makeup brand is facing a legal setback.
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Judge Audrey Collins has issued a preliminary injunction blocking Khroma Beauty by Kourtney, Kim and Khloé. The injunction stems from a trademark dispute involving Lee Tillett Inc., an Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based company that sells a line called Kroma Makeup, and Santa Monica, Calif.-based Boldface Licensing + Branding, holder of the license for the Kardashian makeup brand. Boldface brought a lawsuit last year to obtain a declaration that Khroma Beauty doesn’t infringe on Tillett’s trademark, and Tillett filed a trademark infringement countersuit. The injunction was immediately stayed pending Boldface’s appeal of the decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
