The Lip Bar is a vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand that exists to help change the way you think about beauty. Every day people are being told how to be beautiful - so we’re here to remind you that you don’t have to change. You Are Enough!
In 2012, I launched The Lip Bar because everywhere I looked, the media was telling women that beauty looked a certain way. I hated it! So I started making lipstick in my kitchen because I believed beauty shouldn’t compromise health and because I was determined to change the way people thought about beauty. There is no standard! You are the standard.
I started The Lip Bar in my kitchen while working on Wall Street because I was tired of the beauty industry's lack of diversity, lack of inclusion and excessive amounts of unnecessary chemicals.
“Our rejection on Shark Tank was not easy, but at that moment, I had to make a decision. And I decided that I would not give someone else power over my dreams.” - Melissa Butler, Founder of The Lip Bar
