Kylie Jenner and family loves being the subject of controversies. And this time, Kylie Jenner is the center of one.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recently releases her Kylie Cosmetics Holiday makeup collection. She posted on Instagram her collection’s promo photo.
Many noticed that Kylie Jenner’s concept is the same as that of makeup artist Vlada Haggerty. Haggerty posted her own promo photo on Instagram last September.

Haggerty is quick to see the similarity. She posted on Instagram her own photo on the left and Kylie’s photo on the right to show the cunning similarity between the two concepts.
She put in the caption, “Really @kyliecosmetics? Haven’t you gotten enough ‘inspiration’ from me already? Left is a the work @juliakuzmenko, @brittrafuson and I shot a few months ago and right is @kyliecosmetics new campaign.”
Kylie’s comment section becomes a battlefield between fans and haters.
Other Accusations Surrounding Kylie Jenner’s Cosmetics Line
This is not the first time that Kylie Jenner allegedly stole Haggerty’s ideas. A report says that Kylie used Haggerty’s dripping lip art idea on her lipstick packaging.
In an interview with Refinery29, Haggerty said that she tried to reach out by sending a message on Kylie Cosmetic’s Instagram account. The 31-year-old makeup artist said she did not receive any response from her or anyone from her camp.
Haggerty is not the only one accusing Kylie of copying ideas. Youtube sensation Shannon Harris posted a side-by-side photo of her eyeshadow palette with that of Kylie’s. Kylie Cosmetics, at that time, recently announced her first non-lipstick product, Kyshadow palette.
Harris goes under the name of shaanxo and her eyeshadow palette is a collaboration with BH Cosmetics.
