It’s been a rough month for Victoria’s Secret — its Shanghai show did not go as planned, and now the company is being accused of ripping off the mother of all makeup artists, Pat McGrath.

McGrath periodically drops makeup products that make even the most jaded fashionistas excited. But almost as good as the product is her packaging: a metallic bag filled with matching sequins. As Diet Prada (fashion’s watchdog) pointed out, Victoria’s Secret liked the idea so much the company used it in lieu of boxes for its Tease perfume.

The Victoria’s Secret edition has a tiny ribbon attached, but its essence is still a bag of shiny sequins.

Update: December 5, 8:20 a.m.

McGrath responded to Diet Prada’s post on Instagram writing “I LOVE UOOOO.”
