Katy Perry's make-up brand is being sued

Katy Perry's CoverGirl make-up line has been hit with a lawsuit by rival brand 'Hard Candy.'

The 31-year-old 'Rise' singer - who launched her cosmetics range CoverGirl Kit Kat Collection in April 2016 - has allegedly been found to infringe the rights of the beauty brand Hard Candy after copying their logo, which has led the rival company to take legal action against the singer's executives at CoverGirl's parent company Procter & Gamble.

The company claims the brunette beauty's products reportedly share the exact same trademark packaging of a love heart symbol positioned in between the name of the brand and the name of the star, similar to Hard Candy's layout - who have used the trademark emblem for over ten years.

Although the official reason for the lawsuit has yet to be confirmed, the company are urging all CoverGirl items, which include mascara, an array of bold lipsticks named after her favourite animal and foundations to be removed from stores immediately.

And, according to TMZ, Hard Candy are calling for a share of the profits made from the beauty range since it hit stores.

Meanwhile, Katy has admitted she was excited to work with the renowned company and launch her own collection for the label.

Speaking previously about her the make-up line and what she aimed to achieve, she said: "I obviously wanted a variety of classic colours, and colours that would fit all of the different skin tones, but for me, I always push the envelope and try for a unique look.

"I know CoverGirl has been around forever, and they're super classic, but, for instance, they never had a black lipstick, and I'm like, 'Guys, it's 2016!'"
