Brooke Shields sues cosmetics company Charlotte Tilbury over claims it named eyebrow pencil after her

She’s famous for her bold and unmissable brows.

But Brooke Shields is taking a cosmetics company to court to prevent it from selling products off her name, according to The Blast.

The 53-year-old Suddenly Susan star filed suit against Charlotte Tilbury Beauty after she allegedly discovered the brand sells an eyebrow pencil inspired by her appearance.

According to court documents, Brooke claims she came upon an eyebrow pencil from the cosmetics company called Brow Lift which was offered in a color named Brooke S.

‘Tilbury named the Product after Shields hoping to capitalize on Shields’ iconic eyebrows,’ she claims in the filing.

The company’s website has an eyebrow pencil for sale with that name. 

She asserts that ‘bold eyebrows have been the trademark of her look and a target for endorsements and collaborations.’

According to Brooke, she earns money from collaborating with companies to sell eyebrow-related products, and Charlotte Tilbury is cutting into that line of revenue.

The Jane The Virgin actress claimed she’d also spent time and money ‘investigating and developing potential opportunities to create her own cosmetics line with an emphasis on eyebrow-enhancing products.’

The preexisting product with her name on it ‘interferes with Shields’ ability to market a cosmetics line created and/or properly endorsed by Shields,’ according to her lawsuit.

It’s not just the maker of the eyebrow pencil she’s suing, though.

The Mr. Pickles voice artist is also taking the department stores Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, J.C. Penny, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom to court, as well as the popular makeup retailer Sephora.

In addition to getting the product taken off shelves, Brooke is suing for unspecified damages.

Though she’s become known in recent years as an in-demand guest actor, the Blue Lagoon star is set to star in Glamorous, a new pilot for the CW about a gender non-conforming recent high school graduate who lands a job at a cosmetics company whose products she previously trashed on her YouTube channel.

Brooke plays a former model who’s now the CEO of the cosmetics company in question, while Jade Payton plays her new employee.

Eva Longoria will make her directorial debut with the pilot, and she’ll also executive produce.
