Following the release of Fenty Beauty, both celebrity-fronted brands have been compared - it was previously reported that Fenty was set to outsell Kylie Cosmetics by 2018.
Rihanna fans even began trolling Kylie after they noticed she may have attempted overshadow its launch by releasing a new collection herself.
In response to the new figures, fans have taken to Twitter to suggest Kylie's brand has been "murdered" after watching its sales "tank".
