When Stacy Reid met the love of her life, Matt, her life blossomed in more ways than one. Founder of TINte Cosmetics, Stacy Reid was encouraged by her husband to follow her dreams of starting her own makeup line. In 2004 the couple launched the brand and had massive success, receiving 25 accounts in a span of 3 days. Were a growing brand. Any little step on the way to success is very exciting, Stacy said. This DreamCatcher definitely knew how to turn her childhood dream into her adult dream come true.
What inspired you to start TINte Cosmetics?
The inspiration behind TINte Cosmetics was that I could never find a lip gloss that could moisturize & heal my lips, and tasted good. It was at this point that I realized I had to create a lip gloss that nourished my lips, tasted great and looked beautiful. From this need TINtes Flavored lip glosses enriched with Shea Butter were created. Plus my very first lip gloss came in a similar vintage slider tin. This nostalgic feeling from my childhood made me want to recreate sweet memories for the sophisticated women of today.
