Marissa Carter's name is off Cocoa Brown products - but she's not giving up so easily

She won't go down without a fight.

Last month, Carter, who is the founder of Cocoa Brown Tan, said that she is taking legal action against her business partners, who she alleges had "bullied" her out of the business.

Taking to Instagram today, the beauty guru showed a before and after where we can clearly see the "by Marissa Carter" was once on the brushes, but in newer packaging of it, the name is gone.

She wrote: "Just popping on to let you guys know that I haven't given up and I won't."

In a second story, she showed a different brush, one of the originals, telling her followers that it always had her name printed on the handle.

She said: "This here is the very first contour brush, or tantour brush is what I called it, that I made."

Continuing, she then shows the newer brush without her name, saying: "Ah look at this, hmm."

Marissa then posted a fourth story, showing a screenshot of the Cocoa Brown account replying to a customer query where they called the customer "lovely".

Unhappy with this, Carter pointed it out to her followers saying: "Lovely?! Really?"

On social media last month, Carter said that the whole ordeal with Cocoa Brown had been "the worst experience of her life."

She said: "Every single time I feel like I can’t do it or I’m going to give up, I’m going to remind myself of all the messages I’ve received over the years from people telling me that that little pink bottle has inspired them to go after their dream, that’s what’s going to keep me going.

"So thank you. Thank you to everyone who has ever messaged me because I read them, I read them all."

Cocoa Brown was launched in 2012, and within a year it became the best selling tan brand in Ireland. The products are sold in almost 15,000 stores throughout the Europe, North America and Australia.
