Zolciak, 40, and her daughters Brielle, 21, and Ariana, 17, pre-launched KAB Cosmetics earlier this month.
In promotional snaps of the products, fans noticed the lip kit design is similar to makeup company NARS.
Followers also noticed the lip color names Cherry Pie and Red Velvet are the same as Kylie Jenner’s lip kits.
“Why are you copying @kyliejenner?” one follower asked. “Come up with your own idea not a ‘lip kit.’”
A second follower said, “Always happy for others’ success... however, I was really hoping to see something a bit more original. The packaging is the same as the NARS power matte gloss and the name is the same as the Kylie Lip kit... I’m sure it’s a great product, but I’m not sure how it’s set apart from the others in its category.”
A third person fired, “cheater brand,” while a fourth tagged NARS and said, “I see a lawsuit coming.”
“The packaging actually looks very expensive,” another fan said. “Walk into any Sephora and look at NARS the packaging is similar.”
But the photo Zolciak posted is from October 2017, over a year before the brand launched.
“You have previously commented stating it was Mac and Nars and this photo was from 2017,” one fan wrote, as another said, “Why would you post saying this is your lipstick?”
Zolciak even admitted she is not wearing KAB in the photo. “Because it is,” she began. “I mixed several colors to get this (in the picture). When we created KAB we sent them off and created our own lipstick out combining all 5 tubes I used in the pic. We turned it into one tube! End of story.”
But her response only cause more controversy with fans! “Promoting a old picture with other brand’s accrual products is so wrong. The picture and what you get can be two different things,” a follower said, as a second commented, “How stupid do you think we are? You got caught in a lie. Own it. Stop lying.”
