I find NPR’s podcast How I Built This, about entrepreneurs and the companies they built, absolutely fascinating (probably because I find the prospect of creating and running a business terrifying). A recent episode featured Melissa Butler, founder of The Lip Bar.
Afterwards, I started thinking about adding lipstick back into my makeup routine. Over the years, I’ve used lipstick sporadically — I’ve always had trouble finding a go-to color in a texture and finish that felt right.
I love that The Lip Bar, as a Black-owned business, centers its products around the needs of Black and diverse women. Their products are also vegan and cruelty-free.
After looking at the various colors (The Lip Bar’s website features an easy-to-use shade finder), I’m torn between going bold with Cosmo (a rich red) or subtle with Baby Bellini (the perfect nude). A new lipstick might be the quickest way to brighten my look and mood for my next Zoom meeting!
Lipsticks from The Lip Bar are available at Target for $11.99 in select colors. For their full range of colors (as well as their other products), you can buy directly from The Lip Bar for $13, with some shades on sale for $8 and up.
