Katy Perry — CoverGirl Sued … Her Makeup's a Hard Candy Copy


0719-main-katy-perry-tmz-02Katy Perry‘s makeup line is no “Teenage Dream” — it’s a straight ripoff of cosmetic company Hard Candy … according to Hard Candy, anyway.

The company is suing Procter & Gamble — the parent company of CoverGirl — over its KP line of lipsticks, mascaras and other face paints … which launched earlier this year. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Hard Candy says it’s had trademarks for 10 plus years … and the Katy line is infringing.

0719-sub-katy-perry-02It’s not spelled out in the lawsuit, but it appears Hard Candy’s taking issue with the heart in the middle of CoverGirl’s Katy makeup logos — since that’s very similar to its logo.

HC wants Katy’s line yanked off shelves, and a cut of profits made since the Spring launch.
