Today’s PYNK Girl of the Day is dedicated to the founder of The Lip Bar, Melissa Butler. Three years ago, Butler quit her day job as a Wall Street analyst to follow her dreams and makeup affliction by building a brand of colorful vegan lipsticks. This year, the start up celebrated its 3-year anniversary.
Melissa’s initial goal for The Lip Bar was to challenge women—especially women of color—to take risks with their makeup by encouraging them to wear bold and vibrant colors of paraben and gluten free lip paint. Handcrafted with a unique blend of natural ingredients such as vitamin E, shea butter, coconut oil, castor oil, jojoba oil and avocado oil, The Lip Bar lipsticks are designed to moisturize, soften and take your beat face to the next level in addition to standing out with some bad-ass pops of color.
