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.
