PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A user of a popular lip balm is claiming it gave her a rash, TMZ reported on Wednesday.

The lip balm, EOS, is touted by many celebrities, who according to TMZ are brand ambassadors. The acronym stands for Evolution Of Smooth.

Lawyer Mark Geragos has filed a suit against the company on behalf of a woman named Rachael Cronin who claims the product, which comes in colorful, egg-shaped pods, made her lips crack, flake and bleed. She says the rash lasted 10 days.

EOS publicly responded, saying that they believe the lawsuit is without merit.
