Hi and Welcome to Bossy Cosmetics!
"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
~ Elie Wiesel
Meet our Founder, Aisha
Aisha has always described herself as a "lipstick junkie" and never imagined that she'd start a global beauty brand when she started her career years ago. She worked for several years as an investment banker in the US, UK, Central and South America, and Sub-Saharan Africa. She's also founded a children's play and activity center called Paloo's Place and a media project which showcased successful African women called African HERstory.
She's always believed that women could and should be striving for career heights on their own terms and wearing beautiful lipsticks was one of her signature ways of showing up when she got her seat at the table.
Her mission to empower women to look, feel, and do good while using cruelty-free products is driven by her passion to fuse indulgent purchases (buying lippies) with paying-it-forward (donating to charities that support women and girls).
Please take a moment below to watch this video and learn more about why we started Bossy Cosmetics and what we hope to inspire with this new brand of cosmetics.
In deciding to start Bossy Cosmetics, we were pretty intentional about building a business that put its stakeholders first. For us, stakeholders range from our employees to customers to women and girls in our communities to our shareholders and to the environment in which we operate by ensuring that we adhere to the best industry practices and aspire to exceed them.
Our mission statement is quite succinct
We think it's perfect in its brevity and this is how we operate our business on a daily basis.
All of our products are cruelty-free and we are proud to say that we are Leaping Bunny certified.
Being a mission-driven company is an integral part of our DNA and we've always described our core philosophy around the following three guiding principles:
We make and sell gorgeous and ethically-made color cosmetics for people of all hues and genders (learn more about our brand essence);
We seek to share stories of courageous and amazing women whose voices we want to support in amplifying (learn more about our #BossyBlog); and
We partner with non-profit organizations that actively promote social change that advances the human rights of women and girls around the world.
None of these principles is more important than the other.
We just love the saying “I’m not Bossy, I’m the Boss!” We believe that girls and women are often called Bossy when all we wish to do is state our opinions, own our voice, and get a seat at THE table. We think that being called bossy is a way to make us quiet and this we won’t have!
As a brand, every day we are inspired by girls and women in the world who pursue their dreams and we created Bossy Cosmetics for them.
We want YOU to feel beautiful on the inside and the outside;
We want YOU to speak up when you have something to say and look great while you do it!;
We want YOU to achieve your dreams, however big or small they are, and feel a sense of empowerment in the process;
We want YOU to not fear judgment or ridicule because you want power and control over your destiny, your body, and your career;
We want YOU to DO IT YOUR WAY!
Our launch collection includes a stunning array of color lip products including velvet lip liners, bossy-glosses, and liquid matte lipsticks. We've taken the time to ensure that our collection includes a beautiful range that'll suit people of all ethnicities and skin tones. It's our ambition to be inclusive and welcoming to everyone.
We are also incredibly proud to be a member of the Female Founder Collective. The Female Founder Collective is a network of businesses led by women, supporting women. Their mission is to enable and empower female owned and led businesses to positively impact our communities, both socially and economically.
Whether you are a CEO of a Fortune 100 company, a student aspiring to be a physics professor, a doctor, a teacher in a public school, a manager at a fast-food restaurant, a domestic worker, an actor, an athlete, a mother, a sister, Bossy Cosmetics is made by one of YOU and for YOU.
