Moschino and Sephora are coming back together again to make sure beauty fans' makeup bags get the restock they deserve. The brand collaborated with Sephora for its first Teddy Bear makeup in 2017 and now it's back with a totally different theme yet all of the whimsy playfulness the Moschino brand is known for.
If you fell in love with those gorgeous golden teddies, then prepare your hearts because Moschino and Sephora are going in a totally different direction this time around. Who's ready to do a little more WERKing at the office?
Unfortunately, the brand is already getting backlash for its theme.
Apparently, fans think Moschino and Sephora stole their entire office-themed idea from indie brand The Crayon Case. As you can probably tell by the name, The Crayon Case bases its entire brand aesthetic off of school and/or office supplies.
Here's another look at the pencil brush set from The Crayon Case Cosmetics.
The Pencil Brush Set ($18, The Crayon Case Cosmetics) comes with seven brushes needed to blend, pack on pigment, and create a crease cut. The design looks different from the new Moschino set on the way, but the theme similarities are pretty obvious.
Beauty fans don't see the need for the Moschino collaboration when The Crayon Case Cosmetics exists.
"This makes me want to purchase some @thecrayoncase products," one fan wrote. Another shared, "@TheCrayonCase pencil brush set [is] $18. Marker eyeliner [is] $6. Eraser sponge is $3. Originality is PRICELESS."
We can't NOT point out that The Crayon Case Cosmetics already has a Sharpie-style eyeliner product as well.
The Line Me Eyeliner ($6, The Crayon Case Cosmetics) is a huge fan favorite. I wonder who in the Moschino and Sephora camps did the research when the office theme was being discussed.
Some fans are even upset at the Trendmood Instagram platform for repeated posting the Sephora x Moschino collection photos knowing how similar they are to The Crayon Cosmetics.
"So [you're] just going to keep posting this knowing it's ripping off another brand? I understand this is your job but come on now. A line got to be drawn sometimes," one fan griped in the Trendmood comments.
Neither Sephora and Moschino nor The Crayon Case Cosmetics has commented on their product similarities so far.
It's only a matter of time before one of the three brands says something. Let's see how all of this shakes out in the end. Will you be grabbing this new Sephora and Moschino collaboration when April 25 hits?
