Everyone is Beautiful Here

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!

Why I Started The Lip Bar

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.

STARTED FROM THE KITCHEN

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.

Turned Down By Shark Tank

“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
