MELISSA BUTLER
BAWSE & CEO, THE LIP BAR

WALL STREET EXPAT.
SHARK TANK REJECT.

TRAILS BLAZED. BAR RAISED.
PROUDLY SELF-MADE.

Fed up with the toxic one-shade-fits-most beauty industry, the self-made CEO, Melissa Butler, turned her frustration into action—stepping off the lucrative-but-soulless corporate ladder and into her Brooklyn kitchen to whip up vibrant vegan lipstick.

A rejection on Shark Tank only fueled Melissa’s tenacious spirit—motivating her to reclaim power over her own dream. She grew The Lip Bar beyond lipstick to TLB: award-winning maximum impact, minimal effort beauty must-haves for all.

IN THE PRESS

PopSugar awarded our Tinted Skin Conditioner the Best Skin Tint! “This vegan, cruelty-free tinted moisturizer delivers light coverage that looks like skin, albeit more glowy and even-toned.”

"Bawse Lady goes on like a velvet gloss, dries to a transfer-proof matte that endures through multiple meals and, thrillingly, doesn’t parch the lips in the process."

“The Straight Line Eyeliner has a creamy pigmented formula that can make formula can make a precise line on its own or be blended out for a Kim Kardashian-level smoky eye.”

“The Tinted Shimmer Balm lends just the right amount of subtle color, and a hint of peppermint that will make you want to reapply over and over again.”
