Kim Zolciak cannot catch a break on her new lip kit. The Don’t Be Tardy star was accused of wearing a different brand in promotional images for her new product, and now fans believe she is copying Kylie Jenner’s makeup line.
A few weeks ago, Zolciak launched her KAB Cosmetics with her two oldest daughters, Brielle and Ariana Biermann. But fans were quick to notice that Zolciak’s lip kit closely resembled another design from NARS. Some fans even commented on how the color options are named the same as Jenner’s lip products, including Red Velvet and Cherry Pie.

“Why are you copying @kyliejenner?” one fan questions her. “Come up with your own idea not a ‘lip kit.’”
Other fans were not as kind. Some bashed Zolciak for coming up with a “cheater brand,” while others speculated that the reality star is setting herself up for a lawsuit. Jenner has yet to comment on Zolciak’s lip kit, but it is possible that the Don’t Be Tardy star just started a major feud.
The copying accusations, meanwhile, come weeks after Zolciak posted questionable promotional photos for the lip kit. According to Radar Online, Zolciak shared photos of herself to promote her new product, and fans quickly bashed her after discovering that the images were taken well over a year ago.
The photos were actually from the fall of 2017, long before the lip kit was ever put in production. Zolciak later acknowledged that the photos were old and that she was not wearing her lip products in the image. She did, however, explain how she mixed several different products to achieve the look, which ended up making it into the lip kit.
The explanation did not appease fans, who criticized her for stealing products from other companies. Some even called Zolciak out for lying to fans by posting the image and acting like it was an accurate representation of her product.
Kim Zolciak has yet to respond to the latest round of criticism.
