A lot of people may equate Detroit with crime but there’s so much more to this beautiful city! Its citizens are resilient, hard working and many of them are so creative that it’ll blow your minds. Detroit is quickly becoming a bustling playground art and entrepreneurship of all kinds. Makeup included!
The Lip Bar is a Detroit based makeup brand that specializes in making beautiful funky colored lipsticks. It was founded by Melissa Butler who sprinkled her unique blend of #blackgirlmagic to manifest a successful business that empowers women and makes them feel sexy. After her failed pitch on Shark Tank, Melissa used the harsh criticism to turn the Lip Bar into a powerful black owned makeup brand that is now sold at Target. Talk about an inspiration! You go girl!
