Kim Kardashian is facing a lawsuit after releasing her new skincare line, SKKN. 

Another beauty line, a Black-owned, small business out of Brooklyn, claims Kim’s new venture is confusing its customers. The owner of the line called Beauty Concepts claimed to have the rights to SKKN+ and said Kim’s company SKKN is causing confusion.

The owner of Beauty Concepts asked that Kim stop with the SKKN launch, but Kim’s lawyers reportedly declined.

Kim released her latest beauty venture, SKKN, on June 21, after teasing the products all month. Kim’s latest venture is a rebranding of KKW Beauty with new products that focus on skincare.

Beauty Concepts is not the only Black-owned beauty line that Kim is accused of ripping off — she has also received attention for alleged similarities to Lori Harvey’s line, SKN.
