Stacy Provines is the founder of TINte Cosmetics. In a recent interview with Beauty Interviews Stacy talks about how it all started, the best part of running her own cosmetics line, and Miami Beach.
How was the concept for TINte Cosmetics born?
I have loved cosmetics and lip gloss forever. However, I could never find a lip gloss that could moisturize my chapped lips, and tasted good. I would find an amazing color that looked great but had a waxy or perfumed taste. It was at this point that I realized I had to create a gloss that healed my chapped lips, tasted great and looked beautiful. From this need TINte’s Flavored lip glosses with Shea Butter were created.
What is TINte Cosmetics philosophy?
Our Philosophy is to offer the customer an amazing high end product in cute nostalgic and unique packaging.
TINte’s Vintage Lip Color is getting rave reviews by many beauty editors. Why is the Flavored Lip color So popular?
My very first lip gloss came in a similar slider tin. I remembered those amazing flavors like root beer, bubble gum and cream soda. I could not wait until a new flavor arrived. I created the line from a feeling of simpler times and cherished memories. I wanted the women of today to apply our products and remember those simpler times. The memory of a scent can transcend you from your stress filled days, back to a sweet memory of childhood and innocence. This collection was also created to grab the attention of the younger generation, the up-and-coming girl, and allow her to create warm memories of her own. TINte Cosmetics was my creative way to reinterpret the past and bring it into the future. I think many of the Beauty Editors remember these tins and have that same sweet feeling.
What is new this year at TINte Cosmetics?
This year is going to be great for us! We have some exciting new products launching including our new brown sugar lip scrub and lip conditioner. We have also recently launched onto The Home Shopping Network and our international business has really taken off. So you will see some great additions to our product line very soon……
