Who We Are
The Lip Bar is a luxury cosmetic bar that caters to our consumer’s individuality through our highly pigmented and responsibly made products. We aim to encourage self-expression through beauty. The Lip Bar maintains the idea that beauty doesn’t have to compromise health. In that, our lipsticks offer a unique blend of natural ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil and jojoba oil, designed to moisturize, soften and amplify lips all while setting consumers apart with intoxicatingly bold colors.
Infusing the allure of nightlife and the innocence of nature, The Lip Bar plays on lipstick indulgence with cocktail inspired cosmetics. Serving Top Shelf Beauty with long-lasting sultry hues, The Lip Bar offers naturally blended lip colors with a lavish product experience. Because we know that true beauty equals health, all of our products are blended with ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, jojoba oil and vitamins A, E, C, and F that won’t only look good on, but provide value-added benefits like retained moisture and baby soft lips.
Vision: To become the most sought after boutique, cosmetic brand by eradicating stereotypes that beauty is one-size-fits-all.
Mission: To challenge the current standard of beauty by creating a lipstick experience that is unsurpassed in craftsmanship, quality and color.
Determined to challenge the current standard of beauty, founder, Melissa Butler dreamt up the idea of The Lip Bar after being fed up with toxic and boring makeup. So she allowed her dreams to guide her and she began studying the chemistry of cosmetics. The goal was to create a product that was for the young and savvy but also for the health conscious consumer. Founded on the idea that women can be whoever they want to be, The Lip Bar launched in 2012 releasing 12 handmade bold and bright shades that allowed women to express themselves through beauty. Filled with some of the best ingredients found in nature, The Lip Bar reinforced the fact that beauty does not have to come with the price of health. The two ideals that lay the foundation of The Lip Bar come packaged in an intricately designed and environmentally friendly package to provide our patrons with the ultimate cosmetic experience.

Risks and Challenges
The Lip Bar is already a functioning, actively growing company— and while we've only been around a little over a year, the company has made its footprint in the sand by providing quality cosmetics to people who want to express themselves through beauty! The Lip Bar is a small business with big plans and we have yet to receive any injection of cash which is why we need your help to continuously grow! We don't want to go to a bank or pitch to someone who doesn't understand how the simple stroke of your lipstick can change your perspective.
Because we want to provide the very best experience to everyone we encounter, our products, our theme, heck our entire existence is based on the consumer. It's based on your being the very best YOU. So we provide high quality cosmetics that will allow your to celebrate your individuality and feel good about it.
And in order to spread our message, we think a mobile bar is not only cool but will do the job! Buying a used vehicle to go on a nationwide tour poses problems in terms of mechanical capabilities and costs. To prevent the unknown as much as possible, we are looking to purchase a certified used truck and to be super precautious, we’re going to have a mechanic further analyze the condition of the truck.
Lastly, because people already have their favorite cosmetic that they are loyal to, it would be remiss for us not to mention the commoditization of the cosmetics industry. We face this feat by not only providing a superior product in terms of quality, color and craftsmanship, we also provide an experience and a belief that is incomparable to any other cosmetic retailer.
