- Wow! Talk about a high-low collab! Ikea has teamed up with fragrance brand Byredo to launch a scent collection.
- The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published A Guide to United States Cosmetic Products Compliance Requirements last month (May 2017). The guide supports manufacturers who want to learn about Federal and State regulatory authorities and technical regulations in an easy way.

- Is the Kardashian-Jenner clan our American royal family? Their fame doesn’t rise and fall with the latest film or music, and most everyone wants to KUWTK (and I am sure that there are many folks who trash the Kardashian-Jenner clan publicly, but follow their exploits privately 😊). Kim Kardashian West debuted her own #makeup line KKW after abortive Kardashian Beauty lines and the recent collab with sis Kylie Jenner. No surprise – her first offerings were highlighter/contour kits.
MUA Lee Tillett claims that the Kardashians stole her cosmetics line’s name Kroma (without a “h”). She is suing for $10 million damages.
Meanwhile, Lee’s attorney Elliot Gipson claims Kim – who says she came up with the name [Khroma] herself – was aware via her placement agents TLK Fusion of a 2010 deal to ensure product placement for Kroma on an E! Entertainment show Kim was due to produce.
He said: “On or about May 2010, representatives for Tillett and TLK Fusion were engaged in discussions regarding the possible product placement of the KROMA cosmetics line on the television reality show special ‘The SPINdustry’ that was scheduled to air on E! Entertainment Television following an episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’.”
I don’t put it past Kim to steal the Kroma name. Remember how the Kardashians appropriated Monica Botkier’s handbag designs for Sears’s Kardashian Kollection?
