Shortly after announcing their beauty venture, Khroma Beauty by Kourtney, Kim and Khloé, last year, the Kardashians were slapped with an infringement case by the similarly named Kroma Makeup. Now, Boldface Licensing + Branding, the licensing brand behind the sisters’ line, has filed for an appeal on a preliminary injunction in the Ninth Circuit.
Last week, U.S. District Court issued a preliminary injunction of the Kardashians’ line, which meant loads of bronzer (we’re guessing) had to languish in warehouses rather than be stocked on shelves. Khroma beauty products are currently being sold at drugstores like CVS and Duane Reade, but the injunction means those stores can’t restock. According to court documents filed by Boldface, if the injunction against the brand holds up, “Boldface stands to lose tens of millions of dollars, and will likely be put of out business”. Yikes. The aim of the appeal is that Khroma will once again be released to the masses.
