This week on the show I have KJ Miller & Amanda Johnson. KJ and Amanda are graduates of Harvard Business School and the co-founders of Mented Cosmetics (short for pigmented).
These two women are making their mark on the beauty industry, redefining what a natural, clean beauty look is for women of color. It all started when they both realized they were struggling to find the perfect nude lip. So these ladies took matters into their own hands and created Mented.
Mented is an upscale beauty brand for all women of color who are looking for great nude and neutral looks.
These two figured out the one thing the industry had forgotten to do and now have a thriving beauty company.
On this episode, KJ & Amanda share:
How they learned to make beauty products
Their early mistakes when starting the brand
What it really takes to launch and keep a brand afloat
