In this episode of Impact Michigan, host Leann Abad sits down with Melissa Butler, Founder of The Lip Bar. Melissa is a Detroit native, Cass Tech and Florida A&M grad who left a career on Wall Street to solve a problem that she just had enough of. After being fed up with how the beauty industry’s norms reeked of excessive chemicals and a linear mode of thinking, she created The Lip Bar. With The Lip Bar, she has been on Shark Tank, given a TEDx Talk, and is selling in Target stores across the nation.
Melissa famously said that “Everyone deserves to have representation. Without it, we are left seeking validation.”
